Very Nice.

Was a nice campground, very private sites and can’t beat the price. I didn’t like the rock mixture were you were to put your tent up on. All sites are different though, some have grass and others have platforms. There is one spot to get water which is next to the road,when you first come in. Bathrooms were pretty clean for non flush toilets. The worker was very nice and helpful to us. Tons of stars to see, since there is no electricity, worth it though. Also no cell service, so if you live on your phone might not be a good option for you. We went in July, tons of horse flys and mosquitos, bring spray.

Unplug off the grid

Head to the last town in NH on RT.3 before you hit the Canadian border. Called "Moose Alley" the area of Pittsburg has a very rugged off the grid feel with the border close by. Deer Mountain campground has 30 sites all neatly spaced out. We camped at site 10 & 21. Amenities are small as there are just outhouses. No showers or flushed toilets but firewood is available for purchase. You can shower down the road at the Lake Francis campground if you need to. The campground has access to hiking trails and fishing. The area has the four Connecticut lakes that offer plenty of recreation. The hiking is incredible as you have the Cohos Trail which stretches down to Massachusetts. We also day hiked over the border into Canada as the campsite is not a far walk to the border crossing. An hour out from the site you will have no cell service so if you are a cell addict this won't be the place for you. There is a small general store called Treats & Treasures not far from the site to go and get wifi so you can make a call or check in with folks.

Primitive and peaceful

These sites lack amenities, however, the primitive feel really helps you enjoy the beauties of new Hampshire, some of these sites require you to walk about half a mile into them which really adds to the privacy, I will surely be back for another stay

First to Review
Site #28 please

I was searching for something remote that also had a good deal of hiking in the area. Deer Mtn is a no frills campground. But if you want a perfect campsite book #28. You need to carry in/out in the 1/2 mile walk to the site. But you have a secluded open site sitting on the 2nd CT Lake. Listen to the Loons call as you hopefully see a Moose in what is known as Moose Alley. Numerous miles of trails and your only 2 miles from hiking the international boundary line by the US Customs Border house
