Full Review

Finding a suitable campground (for us) in the White Mountains proved challenging. Most in this area are older parks, not designed for big rigs. This small campground won out due to its location, layout and openness as seen via satellite. We were confident we could maneuver our beast around it.

Our site was well-packed gravel – nice and long. We put blocks under our front wheels and manually operated our jacks to achieve a decently level state.  The site included a fire ring and picnic table. The good news is that there was good water pressure, sewer hookup (a bit uphill, but not too bad), very nice cable TV service, and the site was satellite friendly. The negative is that it was only provided a 30 amp hookup.

The total facility consisted of a small hotel, cottages, and a modest number of RV sites. The property recently changed hands, and the new owner couldn’t have been more friendly. He not only accepted packages, he DELIVERED them, right to our door!  Our AT&T hotspot reception wasn’t good, but the free campground wifi was surprisingly usable. Being there during the height of Covid-19, however, meant that the laundry, pool, rec room, and playground facilities were closed. And the campground doesn’t have a bath house at all, catering only to self-contained RVs, even in normal times.

The biggest hassle for me was dealing with the limited 30 amp service. Our stay included some unusually hot weather and being able to run only one AC unit wasn’t optimal. On 30 amp service,  you have to choose which energy hogging device you want to use — either you can run an AC unit, OR cook something, OR do laundry. Had the weather been typically cool, it would have been easier to manage.

This location is somewhat remote – you are about 30 minutes from Gorham with its Walmart and shopping/dining options. The place was very quiet, partially due to its location and partially due to low occupancy during these pandemic times. The cost was reasonable at around $35/night, with the Good Sam discount.

I wasn’t really enamored with the area, so not sure I’d be back in any case. But the new owner has big plans to renovate, including upgrading the electric to 50 amp. Worth at least checking out if you want to stay in that area.

Bottom Line: Big rig friendly layout, friendly owner, and decent site – but only 30 amp service and no bath house.

    I was sad to read your post since we lived right next door to where you stayed for 13 years and loved it! There’s really a LOT to do there! You must have missed the Franconia bike trail which is wonderful and scenic. So many hiking trails. Littleton is a great town with tons of shopping, a great Main Street and everything you’d need, and a lot closer than Gotham. Too bad the new owners (we know the previous ones) didn’t tell you more about the area. Anyway, this info doesn’t help you now, but it really is a great tourist spot just not all commercialized (we owned a motel there). True, it’s a tough place for big rigs but most of New England is! I still enjoy your stories and am glad you’ve started them again. Happy travels!

      Thank you for the info – next time we can explore more! Also, The campground owner has plans which should improve his big rig amenities. His layout is good, but 50 amp service and a bathhouse would make it a lot better. Have a great weekend!
