Easy access to campground from highway. Huge leash-free pet yard. Kid friendly - playground, min golf, pool, volleyball net, large grassy area for running or soccer. Quiet and friendly. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant KOA convenient to the Kanc Hwy and Franconian Notch. Sites were close together around the perimeter of the park, but nice open space in the middle and in front. Staff was friendly, baths were nice and clean, and nice little mini golf and pool. Wi-Fi worked well. Wished the park had Cable TV, but no such luck. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park for the family. It's very dog friendly, they even have 2 LARGE kennels for you to use. The only down side is there are just a few sewer sites. Can't wait to stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very pretty CG, a lot trees. There is a big open area in the middle of the CG. They have free wireless internet and speed is ok. The sites are a bit close. The entry way to the CG can be improved. Overall, it is a nice CG, close to Kancamagus byway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This camp ground has a lot trees with low branches and for us this was a problem. Traveling in a 41 footer, we asked for a large level lot without a lot trees when we made advance reservations. What we got was a small un-level pull through with low trees which made it impossible to get the satellite working. They do have free wireless internet which is a nice plus. The sites however are very tight, and we felt cramped between two seasonals. Overall, it is a nice CG especially for smaller rigs, close to Kancamagus highway and many tourist attractions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a great campground! I would and have told many people about this place. Great owner/operators. This campground is very clean. The bathrooms and showers are cleaner that most peoples own bathrooms. The grounds are very well kept and very nice. Most sites are very level and a good portion of them are pull through sites. This place is very centrally located in the White Mountains and close to a lot of attractions. We have camped here every Memorial Day weekend for the last 4 years and have no complaints what so ever. The store is well stocked with camping goods. They have propane and firewood available. They have dog kennels available as well. They have nightly hay rides, mini golf and a great playground. There are a couple of seasonal sites here but even those people are very friendly. This is one of the nicest campgroud in NH for sure. Check it out if you get the chance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lost River is a nice Campground. Some of the sites are close together, some are not. Roads are on the small side, and our site (177) was on the small side for our trailer. Bathrooms were exceptionally clean (quoted from my wife, the official judge of bathrooms). They close the bathrooms for an hour every day for thorough cleaning (times are clearly posted). Nearby amenities and plentiful and fun! Onsite amenities, not so much. To access the kids playground you have to cross a pretty fast road (Rt 118). Also across the road is the swimming pond. During our stay it was stagnant and disgusting. I would not let the kids swim in it. The campground was nice and quiet, it also was not very busy during our stay. However, if you camp in one of the sites along the road (Rt 118) be prepared to hear cars as they drive by. We stayed during the last weekend of Bike Week, what a mistake. We constantly heard loud bikes roaring by all day (and most of the night). All in all, we liked the campground. It was clean, and close to a lot of fun things to do. We will be staying again (just not in a site that is along the road). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is excellent. The owner/operators are on site & professional. It is family friendly. I have been coming to this campground for over 7 years & have never had a problem with anything. It seems as if I am coming home to family. They are knowledgeable of the area & resources, & always willing to help both the newest of campers (or the most experienced) enjoy their stay. I fully recommend this campground to anyone coming to the White Mountains. Its location is central to the "kanc", Franconia State Park, children's activities & most everything else in the area. We camped here in a Tent.
We camped on our vacation to the White Mountains and were close to the bathrooms (by request). Unfortunately if you have young children, ask not to be near the restrooms, which are very close to the highway. The brook site was beautiful, and the kids had fun playing in it. The bathrooms that are connected to the store, however, are very dark and cramped, with just shower curtains covering the toilet areas, and no dressing areas outside of the shower. I don't know if those are the only bathrooms. The kids did love the game room. They also liked the playground, but you have to cross route 112 to get to it. We camped here in a Tent.
Very nice campground although not much available for the kids as far as the game room or the little lake at the campground. Some sites were small and a bit cramped but the grounds were kept very clean and maintained. Campground was quiet and there were some very nice looking sites along the river but unfortunately not full hookup sites. Would camp here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
End of the season PA rates, this owner was willing to put rubber on the site. We stayed here five days with virtually no one in the park and enjoyed the peak fall colors in this area. Here is the deal mostly a local campground meaning mostly northeast area unless you feel comfortable driving around trees and backing up don't come in this campground with a big rig. The power was weak on the weekend but fine when everyone left so beware in the summertime when you need AC forget it also the water pressure is non-existent when the campground is busy. I would give this park a 5 when busy and a 9 when empty so the average is a 7. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location. Lots to do in the area. Close to town but not too close. Like most parks everything depends on the site you get. Some sites are near the river which is right by the road and others are by a stream. Site 166 looked awesome - right by the stream. We had site 34 near the bath house since we booked very late. However, it was a decent site. Owner was nice, the other campers were family oriented - no loud partying. Bath houses could have been more updated but were fine except that they charge for showers which seems odd given that you have to pay for the site. Franstead family campground is better maintained in general and nicer but Lost River was good. We would camp there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our third trip to this campground. It is a very nice place, surrounded by some of the high peaks of the White Mountains. Set in the woods next to a stream, it has a real wilderness feel to it, yet it is only about 15 minutes from the great little town of North Woodstock. This is another great place for hikers with miles and miles of trails nearby. A very good place for tents and pop up trailers as it is quiet at night. Watch out for Moose along the roads at night. We like this place and will stay here again. We camped here in a Tent.
This campground has some great stream front and wooded sites. Some of the campsites on the stream in the back are very cool, while the ones in the front get quite a bit of road noise. The campground was packed on the weekend of our stay and we figured that about two thirds of the campers were in tents. There were not any larger trailers or motorhomes because the roads and sites are heavily wooded and would be very hard to maneuver around. This is a very family friendly campground, even though we didn't have a van full of kids with us and everybody else did. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very clean and well maintained. Our site was beautiful, right on the river over a waterfall. All the sites were close but separated by tree's. Bathroom's and showers were very clean. Store was well stocked and the owners were very friendly. No pool, which was a downside, and not much for the kids to do other then ride bikes, but with so much in the area to do there were no complaints. We will return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Management was OK. Sites are wooded but small and you don't get a great sense of privacy. Appeared to be a lot of sites for tents versus RVs. Water pressure was terrible; appeared each site had a water reducer at each water hookup which was not removable. Personnel monitor the GC like police. Only one car allowed at campsite and additional vehicle must be parked in over follow area which is across Rt 112. Also, there is an additional charge for a second vehicle but only one gate card per camp site. The playground is not located within the gated CG; you must cross Rt 112 to get to the playground. Store was satisfactory. Three night minimum -- packed up and left after the second night. We have no intention of ever camping here again. I my opinion there are better ones within 15 minutes/miles of Lost River. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This truly was one of the finest campgrounds we have ever attended. Normally I refuse to attend campgrounds that charge extra for children, but I am glad we made an exception. Reservations by phone were excellent. The owner and staff were all very pleasant and professional. Arriving at our campsite, we found it raked and spotlessly clean. The care was like a good hotel where they turn down your bedding and place mints on your pillow. The campground is beautiful. All the sites are nestled in the woods, with many on the Lost River or the Walker brook. We had a brook-side campsite and were lulled to sleep every night by its peaceful, babbling sounds. The bathrooms were spotless but the showers do cost 25¢ for 6 minutes. The camp store was well maintained with very fair prices on all their goods. This is not a campground for those who like beaches. There is a small pond across the road from the campground that has a beach area. But when I showed my son and daughter the cute little newts in the water, they gave up all ideas of swimming there. This is a campground that we would definitely recommend and visit again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
"Rustic" is the key word here. Bathrooms are available but could use an update. Pay showers. Wooded sites are close together - we had a tent site who's fire looked directly into our site (awkward). Quiet hours are not enforced. The swimming is in a swimming hole. Literally. It is cold and refreshing but you won't be doing laps here anytime soon. Owners seems nice, but also seem a little overwhelmed. Stayed here 4 nights due to location. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Note, the owners, who are very friendly and welcoming, purchased the property a few years ago and are working on renovating this campground (which also includes typical 50's style cottages). Unfortunately for us RVers, they are targeting the work at the cottages first. Regarding computer access, they will allow you to use their computer at the office -- or if you have a Ethernet cablet you can connect to their modem (but note, there doesn't seem to be any place to put your laptop to work from). Note: They do provide an area in the pond for swimming, I was told it was clean but cold. The bathroom facilities while clean, could use some work to spruce things up. It's nice to be able to walk from the campground into North Woodstock (and with a little more effort and energy into Lincoln). The location of the campground provides easy access to many of the attractions and scenic drives in the Franconia Notch area. While we had a wonderful time there, we will not likely go back until they have renovated the campground area itself. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on site RE5 right on the Lost River. This was a big site and very private. New
owners second season were extremely nice and helpful. They had breakfast and Lobster bakes. Very wooded sites great location to all the White Mountain
attractions. Walking distance to downtown Woodstock. River can dry up in late summer and also sightings of bears. Rec hall and campstore with limited supplies. We would go back. Trees could be trimmed along the road in the woodsites. 33' Motorhome We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is beautiful. It is about 4 miles up a mountain. The forest road is paved but has many potholes. You must drive slowly, especially if pulling a RV. There is a mountain pond with a small swimming beach. The pond is stocked with fish. You are allowed to use electric motors on boats or a canoe. There are wildlife, such as black bears and moose. The campground has "bear facts" at each campsite. There are flush toilets and pay showers. Also, there are interpretive nature programs every Saturday night from mid June until Labor Day. The tents sites are very nice; some with stairs to the tent platform. Of course, there are fire pits and picnic tables at each site. There are also some handicap sites available. Big rigs would not be able to negotiate the paved roads easily, even though the sites are large. There are designated RV sites and designated tent sites. Very pretty with hardwoods. Quiet. This is a first come - first serve campground, no reservations. The cost is $20 per site for 1 vehicle. Additional vehicles are $5.00 per vehicle. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
