This is a great spot for camping. The campground is right on the main strip in North Conway, however, the campground is far enough back that you feel like you are in the middle of the forest. It is close to everything. The only negative we found is that quiet hours and rather early, and they are really strict with... More

We have stayed here several times now. It's in a great area, near many activities, but still quiet riverfront campsites. The facilities are clean and include a store, hot showers (small fee), bathrooms, laundry, kayak and tube rentals and drop offs, children's play grounds, fun cycle rentals and a pool. Staff is friendly and accommodating. There are many camping options... More

This was our first time here but not our last. I checked in with Sue who made the process very simple with her sincere kindness. From there we found our site which was perfect for our 37' fiver.
