“Primitive campground in beautiful North Woods setting”

Reviewed Oct 09, 2018

Overall Rating

This is the kind of campground you go to if you want to be outdoors listening to bird song, tracking wildlife, and listening to the babbling sounds of the Connecticut River as it flows past your campsite. It's a NH State Park. There are no showers or flush toilets, just pit toilets that are cleaned daily. There are no hookups and no electric service. Some of the sites are too close to the highway for me, but at night no one is traveling on the road because there isn't anything north of this except the Canada border so it will be very quiet. You might wake up to the sounds of logging trucks early in the AM at those sites though. If you are in a small camper you can fit your rig in some of the sites. Sites 14 and 15 are right next to each other with no privacy in between but they have the nicest view of the river. I was there during the week and it was very quiet with only a few other sites occupied. I've heard from other campers that summer weekends can be noisy when the campground is full. There is a fresh water spring to fill your water containers which is cold and delicious, and great boating, birding, fishing, and wildlife viewing all around. Be advised that the walk-in site, which is in a spectacular setting all by itself on a huge platform on a little pond suitable for swimming, kayaking, or otter watching, is at least a 7 minute walk from your parking spot so best suited for backpackers. If you want more amenities but wish to remain close to this gorgeous North Woods setting try Lake Francis State Park, 10 miles south. The staff at both of these campgrounds is exceptional.
