“Great base camp for White Mountain adventures!”

Reviewed Sep 22, 2017

Overall Rating

This was a great place to base camp for access to the White Mountains. It's just off of Rte. 2, about 5 minutes outside of Gorham. It's very easily accessed from the east or west.

The campground was very well kept. Most of the sites are fairly level and well shaded by trees. There is a nice little trail at the back end of the campground that leads along the river. It makes for a nice evening stroll.

The owners were very accommodating and very pleasant to chat with. They live in the campground full time, so they are always around to help with anything. They also know the area very well, and have great suggestions on local attractions. They even give out a nice printout with things to do when you arrive.

The showers are $0.25 for 10 minutes and are very spacious. The restrooms were kept very clean. They have laundry on site. It's $1.75 to wash and $1.00 to dry. The laundry room also included some gaming machines and a small lounge, although we didn't spend much time in there.

We were there late September, so the campground was really quiet during the week, but it started to fill in for an ATV festival for the weekend. There is some road noise, but we weren't bothered by it at all.

The Verizon signal was stronger than I anticipated, at least at our site. I was able to maintain LTE the entire time and no issues with my VPN and RDP connections. Was also able to stream HD video without any hiccups. I didn't get a chance to test the AT&T signal strength.

The campground is very close to Gorham, which offers all the amenities of a small town. There are decent places to grab a bite to eat and plenty of small shops. There is also a Walmart on the opposite end of town. It's only a relatively short drive to Conway from the campground, as well.

All in all, we were very happy with our stay here and would certainly stay here again.

“Woodsy Campground”

Reviewed Oct 01, 2016

Overall Rating

Pretty nice campground in a great location for touring the northern White Mountains. The campground is situated in the woods on the side of highway 2. Sites are pretty tightly packed, the one we were in was tight enough that we couldn't put our awning out. It was probably the worst of the bunch but many of the sites, especially those along the back line are tight side to side with little to no privacy screening.

There is a rail line behind the campground but we didn't hear much from it. The highway is noisier than you would expect for the area due to logging trucks rolling through at all times of night. There are some trails out into the woods that you can walk as well as access to the river that runs just on the other side of the train tracks.

Verizon signal was strong but quality was variable, overall I would say it was better than down the road at White Birches but still frustrating.
