5 Reviews of White Mountain National Forest
Large group camping

Went camping here in a large group on the normal camp sites, had a couple booked next to each other. Worked out great, and the park has plenty of trails to explore for any level of fitness/expertise.

Gorgeous in the fall!

Extremely beautiful in the fall, with the changing of the leaves. Lots of diners, restraunts, kayaking and hiking off and near the kancamagus highway.

Eventually found a nice spot, but was very hard to find free camping

Had to use freecamping.org to find a spot. We were naive thinking that National Forests have free dispersed camping, but the White Mountains charge at least $20 at their sites and forbid you to camp in any place we found. almost everywhere you look are no camping signs which is so unlike many other national forests. Anyway we eventually found some spots on a forest road (I think752) that would have been very nice and secluded if it weren't already so late and they weren't already so full

Small, pricey for what it offers.

We stayed at 13 Waterfalls tent site. It was rustic, small, a little cramped, but met all of our back country needs. It did cost us $20 a night. There were 7 dogs who barked all night and the sites were a few feet away from each other. There was an outhouse. I dont think the outhouse was worth $20/night… we would have been better off camping in the back country.

I don’t use a specific campground but hike and stop when necessary

I generally tent or sometimes use a shelter. It is a pretty remote area with some of the worst weather and highest speed winds in the world. Don’t go into the woods in flip-flops, shorts and a tee shirt late in the day with no flashlight. Be prepared and you can enjoy some of the best backpacking New England has to offer.
