“Fabulously peaceful - hidden gem in the White Mountains!”

Reviewed May 29, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a hidden gem of a campground owned by the Forest Service - so hidden that your iPhone map won’t find it (found that out the hard way). A combination of full hookups and dry sites that are nicely spaced. We were there the week before Memorial Day weekend through the weekend. The campground was virtually empty when we arrived but filled up for the weekend. It was clean, quiet and the camp hosts were super! As a note you will NOT have WiFi or cell service at all! Additionally there are often fire restrictions in effect so if you want a fire plan on bring a propane fire pit and let the camp hosts know when you check in as they will give you a marker for your site.

The fishing is great! Big Lake has a small boat shop where you can rent a boat or you can fish from shore. There are other lakes and the black river - all a short drive from the campground. Plus, loads of hiking trails. We saw elk, antelope, wild turkeys, and heard wolves at night plus there was glimpse of a small black bear.

Reservations are highly recommended - most of the campers up there make their reservations 6 months out.

“Nice flat spaces and about 50/50 on hook ups”

Reviewed May 18, 2016

Overall Rating

Very nice place. Good fishing from Big Lake which is a short walk from the campground. Hot showers and flush toilets were very clean. Camp host very nice and helpful. Aspen loop has the most non hook ups but other loops are full hook up and re require a reservation. Altitude is closer to 9000 feet so as night it gets chilly. Every site has fire ring and picnic table. I will be returning here!! Cells phone work just outside the campground but at campground it is very spotty.
