There are 26 non-reservable wooded sites with gravel pads, fire rings, and picnic tables. A self-service pay system collects the fees on a first come, first serve basis.
Allow no more than 8 people and 2 vehicles per site and keep all equipment (including tents, tables and motor vehicles) on the graveled area. This will minimize compaction, allow low vegetation to grow, and enhance privacy between sites.
Build all fires in the ring provided. “Only YOU can prevent forest fires,” says Smoky Bear. This will eliminate unsightly charcoal spots that soil camping equipment and clothing.
Observe quiet hours between 10 PM and 7 AM. Turn off audio devices during these times and play them at a reasonable volume at all other times. See the bulletin board for the rules about operating generators.
Gather only dead and down firewood.
The picnic area is directly across from the campground, with it’s own water, waste containers, and restroom facilities. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built the picnic pavilion. A riverside setting offers one of the most beautiful views of Mt. Moosilauke.
Vault toilets are handicap accessible and equipped with cold water faucets. Refuse dumpster’s are provided; campers are encouraged to pack out their recyclables. There are no hookups, dump stations, showers or group camping sites available.
Moose are commonly seen along the banks of the Wild Ammonoosuc River. This river was the scene of major log drives in the 1900’s.

Just a few miles from the AT and about 10 miles west of North Woodstock, convenient for heading up to Mt Moosilauke or up the Kinsman Ridge. Other activities in the area are Clark's Trading Post, Franconia Notch State Park, all the hikes and adventures along the Kanc.
There's potable water available and pit toilets. Sites are large and level, as they usually are in the White Mountain National Forest campgrounds. Some of them are better suited to tents than trailers/RVs.
Sites are first-come, first served, and because it's on a less-traveled stretch of 112, I suspect it fills later than other campgrounds. Cell phone coverage is poor to absent. You can hear some road traffic, but not as much as other campgrounds in the Woodstock/Lincoln/Franconia area. Fees were only $18 summer of 2018; an extra car was $5 more. Campground is open May-October, closing at noon on Columbus Day.
This is a great spot away from crowds. Good location for hiking, and short drive to Lincoln, NH.
Sites are nicely wooded and not on top of you neighbor. Camp hosts are very friendly. Facilities are only compost toilets and potable water. Dog friendly
I have been camping at this campground for almost 10 years once a year. The hosts are amazing and we have never had a problem with them. The sites are clean and some even have river access. The fee is reasonable and the sights are breathtaking.
