This campground off 49 in the southern part of the White Mountain National Forest offers sites along two loops that run parallel to the road. The sites on the southern site of the loop are VERY close to the road. the sites are generally level and a decent size. Unlike many of national forest campgrounds, this one offers both flush toilets and showers. I was in site 9, which offered ample space for my vehicle and teardrop.
I stayed here on a June weekend in 2019 and the campground was not full. The back sites fill up earlier because they provide a little more distance from the road. Although some sites are reservable, others are saved for first come, first served, so it's a good option if you're heading to the mountains last minute.
It's in a great location if you want to enjoy some popular hikes such as Welch-Dickey, with great open ledges, and the Osceolas. A few other 4000-footers in the area include Mt Tecumseh and the Tripyramids. It's also close to I-93 if you want to head a little farther north to the Kanc. The Pemi river offers tubing, kayaking, and boating opportunities. If you're looking for outdoor resort activities, Waterville Valley offers biking and disc golf. Grab some ice cream after a hike or other outdoor fun at the Bear Den. Fishing opportunities on Campton Pond and the Mad River.
