Cool campground, dog friendly. Lots of trails for biking and hiking. Great shaded sites, very clean! Sites were private and staff were friendly and welcoming.
We were welcomed by a lovely little house used as the Ranger station. A fire kept it warm and cozy. The ranger was very pleasant. We bought some fire wood for $6 a bundle… there was a private seller down the road selling it for $4.
Easy check-in. We reserved the last available site and it was near the bathroom which I wasn't that excited about but it was actually quite nice.
Nice bathrooms. Nice Shower building. Good wash-sinks.
Our site appeared to be the only one with 2 fire pits. One of them was a nice cooking/barrel type of set-up that all the other sites had. The second was an older stone and cement pit with a back wall that was perfect for sitting in front of on a chilly October evening.
My husband and I camped here over the long weekend. It was reasonably priced and we had ample space. In addition to our designated spot, we had access to a large open space behind that many people utilized to play games or expand their camping area. We also were able to access the water pump in several spots close by. The bathroom was very clean. They even had an "outdoor" cleaning space to wash our dishes. It was the perfect spot to camp for our day hikes at Mt. Moriah, Mt. Cabot, Bulge and the Horn!
Definitely will come back again!
Large, new Adirondack shelters and tent sites. Get the shelter….only $4 more per day ahd huge! All the facilities are phenomenally well maintained.Clean bathrooms and awesome showers! Love this place!
Great campground! Very clean, private showers, working bathrooms. We stayed on campsite 3, which was right by the babbling brook. You can fall asleep to the sound of the rushing water! Highly recommend!
We found a beautiful, secluded site was quiet and peaceful. The bathrooms and showers are brand new and very nice. We will be fishing in the pond shortly. There is a large common area in the middle that was great for paying catch.
We chose this campground because it was dog friendly. Our site was very private and secluded, but close to bathrooms and showers. Facilities very clean! Quiet and peaceful at night. Very close to NH 4K hikes, and was a great base camp for us! will definitely be back!
We have stayed at Moose Brook State Park a number of times over the years to gain easy access to the hiking trails in the White Mountains. The campground is well run, manned by easy going Rangers, and is hassle free. The sites are large, with a choice of wooded, partially wooded, or open. Sites are level, with the fire ring on the correct side for people with campers. The price is good and on a number of occasions we have seen moose or bear in the area.
This state park is located in the small town of Gorham, New Hampshire. One of the best parts about this place is its location…it isn't any where near the hustle and bustle of touristy North Conway (no offense). It sits on the northern side of Mt. Washington but not in the national forest like many of the camping areas in the vicinity. Because of this, it is often less crowded than other camping areas (like Dolly Copp and others along the Kancamangus Highway).
This state park has well maintained campsites and the group sites are in a different location, on the opposite side of the road, from the main campground which is nice. Sites have fire rings, picnic tables and nice areas to pitch tents.
There are facilities, a fishing pond and separate swimming pond where the water is quite chilly and refreshing on a summer's afternoon. There are also many hiking trails in the park and a ton of great mountain biking terrain in the park and accessible from the park. The local Coos Cycling Club maintains the trails and is constantly improving and creating more terrain. Also accessible from the park is the Presidential Rail Trail and several other ATV/Snowmobile trails. FYI, the Rail Trail is NOT open to ATVs. So hop on the moderate grade crushed gravel trail and head all the way to Pondicherry, a wildlife preserve, about 18 miles from the park. The way back is downhill.
While the campground is closed in the winter, the trails are open to fat biking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing!
The scenery at this park is beautiful any time of year!
