“Great Staging Location for White Mountains Hiking”

Reviewed Sep 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We originally booked in here for a month in order to maximize our available hiking time by not having to move around between NF campgrounds every other weekend. We ended up extending to two months and considered three. We stuck around for the hiking, which is plentiful. You can access the AT just up the road, head down Pinkham Notch from Gorham, get to 113 south in ten minutes, the Presidential trailheads are 10 - 20 minutes away, you can go north past Berlin to access Mt Cabot and the surrounding area and both Franconia and Crawford Notch trails are available if you are willing to make a longer drive.

Groceries were available in Berlin and the weekly farmer's market kept us in fresh organic produce which would have been a struggle otherwise.

The campground has a large open area of full hookup sites surrounded by some additional full hookup sites that back in to the woods. There is another large open area across the highway from the main office / CG. If you don't need hookups there is another section in the woods that has some fantastic sites, a few that are amazingly private.

There is lots of room to walk through the campground including a trailhead that leads up above the campground. You can also cross the highway and walk all the way down to the river.

Facilities were well maintained, the owners were on site and are super friendly. There is a well equipped laundry. WiFi is available and reliable. They have a new system they put in this year, signal was good and not a problem. Bandwidth, like in all parks, is subject to others use of the system. Users are on a 1 hour lease before having to authenticate with the proxy again which I suppose might cut down on some streaming use. We experienced both good and unusable times and ended using it just for backup to Verizon.

Verizon signal is difficult. Without an external antenna and unboosted our hotspot would bounce between 1 bar of 4G and 3G. Boosted and on an omni antenna we could get decent 4-6 mbps download but < 1 mbps upload. In order to have a reasonable connection for working on we ended up using a directional antenna which got us good upload and download. Still the bandwidth was not always sufficient for video conferences. We added a ProjectFi phone and tethered with it when necessary. On Fi we could get 20 mbps down and 10 up, unboosted.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The owners are great and with some work we had a reasonable internet connection. Access to insane numbers of trails and availability of good groceries made for an excellent extended stay.
