Overall Rating

The road north from Lancaster to Pittsburg, NH gets bumpy and rough, because logging trucks haul logs over this route. The road leads to a small border crossing to Canada or the bridge to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. This is not a popular tourist route through New England. It is off the beaten path. If you want lots of woods, few distractions, and a small lovely campground, then lake Francis State Park is the place for you. There are about 50 sites and a dozen of them are very suitable for trailers and rvs. They have water and electric at the trailer sites. These are on the lake or have water views. These are open sites, so if you want more privacy there are a few sites that are suitable in the woods for trailers, but you would probably want a trailer under 20 feet.

There is no beach at the lake and the bank is steep from the trailer sites. There is a boat ramp that would allow you access to the lake. People come here to relax, paddle, and hike. There aren't any tourist sites.

There are a couple of restaurants in the area. The Rainbow Grille and Tavern, at a resort on another lake, was excellent.
