2 Reviews of Osceola Vista Campground
i stayed here for one night with a large group (maybe 40ish people) prior to setting out on our backpacking weekend.
This is a great campground, very clean. toilets available, and dumpster for trash were very convenient. There was potable water available also, and picnic tables. parking was tricky for our large group, and we had a bit of trouble fitting in all of the cars, but if you have a smaller group it should be no problem.
campground was very quiet, no real road noise or anything could be heard. ground was soft and grassy, although i would still recommend using a sleeping pad, was not as hard as some other campgrounds I have stayed at. had a nice big grassy area for the large group.

Stayed here at the beginning of a shirt weekend backpacking trip. Nice campground with bathrooms and fresh drinking water. Close to trails and a nice stream nearby. Well kept and conveniently located, this may become my go-to White Mountains campsite!
