“Nice campground but the highway noise was horrible!”

As far as the individual sites go, they are fairly standard. Roomy enough with a picnic table and fire ring and most are reasonably spaced far enough apart with trees to provide privacy. However, the noise from Highway 93 is intolerable! 18-wheelers blowing by at all hours of the day and night, making it very difficult to enjoy a restful sleep. I had reserved site 46 because it was across the street from the Pemigewaset River but I could not hear the river over the highway noise. You can hear the highway noise from all the sites, but I think 33, 34, and 35 are the quietest. The Lonesome Lake Trail runs right through the campground which is good news/bad news. Easy access to the trail but there are a number of sites that directly border the trail, which could impede privacy. No cell service. There is a store, and two restrooms with pay showers; one of these also has a dishwashing sink, and washer and dryer, a nice perk. Franconia Notch State Park has a lot to offer and this campground is centrally located. If it wasn’t for the horrible highway noise, I would give this campground 4 stars; however, it is the ONLY campground in the park, so I guess that’s that!

We've stayed here twice (3 & 5 years ago) and we're staying again in October. This is a popular campground with no hook-ups and it's advisable to reserve ahead. Heavily wooded tight campground (might be hard to manage with larger vehicles). Many sites are small but there is privacy due to trees . There's a small general store with shower rooms (paid showers) and bathrooms at rear of building. Our site was right on creek and could only accommodate a small vehicle (we have a camper van) or pop-up camper but we loved it. Although we were relatively close to the road, I don't remember road noise. Surrounded by great hiking!
