Northern Waters Base Camp is located right in downtown Errol, NH, and our only car accessible campground. We have 12 campsites to choose from and offer a tipi and cabin tent to rent. Each campsite comes equipped with a fire pit and picnic table and is in close proximity to outhouses.
Blink and you'll miss this campground! It's just down the road from Umbagog State Park in Eroll, New Hampshire. Situated right on the Androscoggin River this small stretch of Class II whitewater is popular with all the area rafting companies. So if you find yourself here in the summer months, be prepared to be inundated with a multitude of people of all ages floating through the froth in all types of vessels. The campground is also the thoroughfare for foot traffic of these companies looking to run the stretch of bubbly more than once. Just be prepared.
There is a small office right on the road and the staff are super friendly. The campsites are along a dirt road right along the water. The northern most site is right next to a public boat launch. While it does experience a lot of traffic (people, boats, cars, and USGS Hydro employees) it is the nicest site at the campground. There is a nice grassy patch, picnic table and fire ring. An outhouse is a short walk down the dirt road. The road can get rutted and be very muddy, full of puddles and buggy (another reason I like the site farthest from the office).
If you are paddling along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (check out: https://www.northernforestcanoetrail.org for more information) this is a nice spot to spend a night or two. There is a large local sporting goods store, L.L. Cote, just down from the campground. Here you can re-stock on all your camping supplies, groceries and even scarf down some pizza and ice cream! It's definitely within walking distance of the campground.
Several large groups book nights here so be sure to call ahead if you want to stay.
