34 Parks near Fryeburg, Maine

The Fryeburg Fair runs for eight days and RV's can come in the Saturday before Columbus Day Weekend and stay for eight days until the Sunday of the holiday weekend. There are two big areas for camping Fairview and Trackside which are parking lots on gravel with some grass with lines for your space. Slide outs cost $5 more. We were Trackside this year and I liked it better than Fairview. They widened the sites and put the lines in so those with big units and cars need to move their cars if they don't fit into the specific site. RV's are very close together and they hookup to a post for eight campers for their electricity and water. You might want to bring a y attachment for your hose in case no one else has one. There is a dump station. The fair is one of the best in New England running for over 165 years and it is so nice to be able to walk over to the fair. Rides, kiddie rides, petting farm, shows every night, performers all around the park, crafts, animals, horse racing, competitions for everything with permanent stages, buildings and barns. Tuesday is senior citizen day and those over 65 get in free. Many of the campers come for the week but there are a lot that come for two or three days. You need to go to the website for the fair and fill out paper that you mail in before a certain date sometime in the spring. They will send you an acceptance in the summer when you then mail your money in - the price has gone up. We camped in Fairview about four years ago and there was a waiting list but this time they have added some rows in both spots and there were a few available slots. Great fair and a good time for all. - gsnakehill

Nice spacious spots located close enough to walk to the fairgrounds, but could also take a shuttle in numerous locations at the end of each camping row. Excellent trash removal service. The only problem is to be aware that the last 4-5 rows are located very close to the helicopter tour site and helicopter pattern was over campers all day when weather was good. No septic, but trucks were available to empty campers. - LR-VT

Tight quarters with thousands of other campers, but a great way to experience the oldest agricultural fair in New England. Even though we live in the next town to Fryeburg, we stay in our motorhome all week at the Fair. It's a tradition we love. We see many regulars and always meet new campers. Because of the crowds and small camping lots, it's best to come early and stay late. The staff is helpful but usually stressed by the end of the week. Hint... Use the "honey wagon" service... for $10. they will empty your tanks with a day's notice (sign up at the camping office.) Then, you can pull out the next day and avoid a long line at the dumping station. See you at "The Fayah." - scotteyedoc

Rate based on 2 month stay. My wife and I have been RVing all over the country for the last year and this is, by far, the friendliest campground we've stayed at. It is a little gem and a great little campground with tent sites as well as RV spaces. The park is always kept immaculately clean. The spaces are big, level and quite private. The common grounds are always well maintained and manicured. The restroom and showers are very clean and neat. It has a small store in the office, a laundry facility, a game room for kids and plenty of outdoor games that you can use at any time. There is also a very large open area (very well maintained) to run and play in. They are right on the Saco River and there is access to the river from the park. Additionally, they will run you up the river if you would like to go canoeing or tubing, and they have the canoes and tubes to rent right on site for a reasonable fee. Water and WIFI are really good and over the air TV is available there.
The best part though are the owners. They are just great. I can't say enough nice things about them. They help with your setup, keep your space mowed (did I mention the RV spaces are all grass, not gravel), and bend over backwards to help everyone staying there. They truly make it feel like a 'family' campground. They definitely made us feel very welcome.
I would highly recommend this park for anyone wanting to stay a day, week, month or longer. - ssmmerhalski

Rate is based on memory (so may be off). Nice privately owned and managed campground. Owners are on site, friendly and ensure everything runs smoothly. This is not the place if you don't like observing quiet hours or need modern resort facilities (no pools or arcades). Park is well laid out, has adequate spacing between sites and all sites back to a real large common area (probably 200'x150' or so). They rent kayaks and canoes and provide river shuttle service. They have a small store and game room, nothing fancy though.
Roads and sites are packed gravel and fairly level. Water, sewer, electric, and Wi-Fi worked fine. If we were returning to the area, we would definitely stay here again. - Selectively Unemployed

ALERT: Probably the worst night we have ever experienced in over 20 years of camping. We were there with a large group of friends. We rented 90% of the campground. We were all professionals , married with small children.. From the time we pulled in the harassment started. Do yourself a favor, the Maine State Police a favor and don't ever camp there. They were confrontational, rude, eccentric, obscene and scary people. They spyed on us, confronted us for minor issues and just when we were ready to spend our last night there, the owner walked up to our site where we all were sitting around the campfire and screamed obscenities because one of the dogs was loose. ( a black Lab). We tried to calm him but to no avail. It escalated to a confrontation where he spayed us with mace. The "Staties " arrived and they took the "owners" side. It was awful. They wanted to kick us all out at 10:00 p.m. They arrested one of our party as the "sacrificial Lamb' and let the rest of us stay for the night. Nice of them. All charges were dropped after the fact but the memory of a horrible night remains. Oh yeah part of the court sentencing is we could not go back there " for over a Year" Fat chance of that happening! Can't believe this place is still open. - lukelab

We loved staying at Woodland Acres! We camped on the July 4th weekend, and the place was very quiet, although it wasn't even half full. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the facilities were spotless. I don't remember seeing a piece of trash anywhere the entire weekend. The restrooms and showers were cleaned multiple times a day.
The only thing that was not great was that the campground is very sandy, and even though we cleaned our feet before stepping on the mat, there was sand all through the camper. Not a big deal, just needed extra effort to keep the rig clean.
We'll definitely be back next year. - 2beagles

We were in a group site and paid per person per night plus had canoe rentals. Great campground for a Scout group to be able to camp n canoe. Sites are nice, bathroom was great and clean. The system they have of bringing you up river and ending at the campground works great for our group. We had a lot of rain over night and the site drained nicely as if it had never rained which helps when you have 13 young men running around. Facilities and staff were wonderful, well worth the trip. - Happy Camper X2

This is a very clean but basic campground, gives you a state park feel but with extras. Off season it was very quiet. We stayed in a group site and canoed all day Saturday. The campground has a small but well stocked store, game room, playground and friendly staff. We were transported up river with our canoes and paddled back to the campground, about 8 miles but there are various drop off spots depending how long you want to be on the water. Well worth the experience. - HappyCamper46

The campground offered a very nice atmosphere. We had a very private wooded site. The campground store had a large selection of camping goods. We enjoyed our trip. - happy rvers

We camped here for 5 nights (10/1-10/6, 2005). Our site (#29) was on a small peninsula right on Conway Lake which was a great spot for our 18' TT. We saw loons, a heron & ducks on the lake. The CG was maybe 30% full due to the time of year we visited. We enjoyed our stay very much & would not hesitate to return. There were 2 potential drawbacks I can mention - 1 major, 1 minor (depending on your point of view). The minor drawback was that the access & interior roads, as well as the sites themselves, were all dirt/gravel. I imagine this is due to the shaded nature of the CG. This was not a problem for us as the weather was fantastic the days we were there; if it was rainy, I could see where this could be a problem. The potentially major drawback was that the restrooms & bath house were not heated. If you needed to use these facilities & it was cold in the Spring or Fall, it might cause some problems. For those who use their own facilities, it's no big deal. - BigPackFan

We spent a week here in order to explore the White Mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee areas. Beautiful sightseeing abounds and this campground is certainly well located to be our base. For as many families and kids were here, the campground was surprisingly quiet at all hours. Our site was long but close to those on either side. All the hookups including cable worked well. Wi-Fi was marginal at best. However, the road leading into this place is in serious need of grading, and that is the good part. Once you are in the gate and heading for your site, idle speed is too fast. These roads were among the worst we have seen anywhere. Hard packed ruts, edges that fall off quickly and tight turns. When we departed, we backed out of our pull-through site since the road in front of us was not suitable for a 44' motor home. The one behind was marginally better.
We will not stay here again only for the condition of the entrance and interior roads. - TwoCorners

Well we have been coming here for the past 15 years..the first 5 years had great ownership, lately the park itself has shown signs of disrepair...roads haven't been graded in almost 5 years, lots of bumpy roads, sites are aren't mowed, when it rains there are massive puddles in the roads. New bath/shower area isn't cleaned on a regular basis and they really need scrubbing. Disappointed in this campground as it was one of our favorites. However, if you are looking for a place to "park" and visit nearby tourist attractions it's an easy place to get into. I wish the owners would invest a little $ to return this park to the way it used to be. - anger49

This was one of the last parks still open so we decided to give it a try. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the seasonal help was gone, but the park was in pretty good shape. It had just rained and there were lots of puddles, but not at all muddy. Overall, the sites were spacious and maneuvering a big rig was pretty easy. Lots of nice pull through sites with full hookups and 50 amp service. Our Verizon Wi-Fi had a strong LG4TE signal and cell service was good. Did not try the park Wi-Fi. Park looks like they need to get caught up with some maintenance issues like filling in potholes and fixing up some of the tent shelters. Overall, this is a nice park with abundant river frontage and it is one of the very few parks that have a separate beach where pets are allowed. Our dog had a blast wading in the river! We would stay here again. - bgbassman

Campground is on the Saco River with a wide beach. Camp sites are dirt and sand, some sites have grass. All sites have full hookups. The sites by the river are the most favored among families. The best sites in my mind are numbered 86 to 91; they are grass in part sunlight and away from the crowds at the river sites. The campground is well managed. Our site had a problem with electrical service. One phone call to the office before office hours took care of the problem. Repair was done that morning without any further problem.
The beach area is composed of sand by the waters edge and a mixture of sand and small gravel on the majority of the beach. The river water is the clearest I have ever seen with a nice current for tubing or kayaking and swimming near the beach which is out of the current. A service is provided by the campground to take you up the river about seven miles for a float down to the campground.
Utilities in the campground are good; Wi-Fi is strong throughout and cable TV is all new cable with a good number of channels. AT&T had good reception.
Conway and North Conway have all the services you could require, also good restaurants and brew pubs.
We were there for two weeks and enjoyed the area. - Nautilus

Stayed here for a weekend on a pull through full service site. Cable had ample channels and wifi was excellent. The new owners have only purchased this park approximstely a year ago and are in the process of making some positive changed. This park is wooded and feels like a state park. Each site has a fire ring and table and are spacious. The surface of our site which was on the Soco Rivet was mostly sand and can be messy. Overall this was a good place to stay and we would visit again. - Irish2

The Beach Camping Area is a nice small family run campground. This is the owners' first year so they are still in the learning process. They are helpful and more than pleasant. Yes, the campground could certainly make some much needed upgrades but all good things take time and they are slowly working on it. I have camped here for more than 30 plus years and can say that there is no where else I would rather be than at the Beach Camping Area along the Saco River. - Rileya

This is a large, family-oriented RV park. If you have a big rig and you want full hookups and satellite access, however, this probably isn't the best choice of parks. In order to have those amenities, we had to take one of the strangest sites I have ever encountered. It was a long pull-in (back-out) site with brushy trees which narrowed the width. After disconnecting our truck from our fifth wheel, I had to drive the truck through the RV park playground in order to get it back out onto the access road. Also, I had to do a bit of tree-trimming to ensure that we didn't scratch up our fifth wheel when we backed out to leave. Our site was a level, gravel/sand site with fire ring and picnic table with good hookups. The access roads were paved. There was a small heated swimming pool and a several nice play areas on attractive grounds. The WiFi was decent, but not extraordinary. Glass/plastic/aluminum recycling was available on site (no paper). - Byron Bailey

The main road coming in is small and curvy. If two big rigs met, it could spell trouble. The main road is paved but the secondary roads are dirt, and the sites are dirt/grass. All sites are not level and some sites had two or three tents. A posted speed sign was in place showing your speed and many vehicles were well above the maximum speed limit. This policy was not enforced and there were LOTS of kids. The park also charges $4.00 per dog per night. - Michael47

We greatly appreciated having Site 111 because it is spacious, next to the entrance to the Audubon trail, and near the Saco River beach. We enjoyed walking in the woods and wading in the crystal-clear Saco River. The campground is located on a quiet road off Route 16 in close proximity to shopping centers, restaurants, and adventures, but it affords views of the surrounding mountains, offers tubing and boating in the river, contains plenty of trees, and connects to the Audubon woods. Our truck would not start on the morning of our departure, and the owners were extremely understanding. They graciously moved our trailer to the field while we had our truck repaired. We are very grateful for their kindness and highly recommend this campground. - FADV

Paid for two nights, only stayed one. Bathrooms and shower facilities were old, beat-up and dirty. Trash and beer cans in our site when we arrived. Would not recommend! Actually after my husband took a shower he suggested I don't even go to the shower house. While he was taking his shower there were several men, also taking showers, who appeared to be drunk. They were singing inappropriate songs, were loud and using bad language. The whole campground looked and felt" dumpy". Not a place many would be comfortable staying at. Couldn't wait to leave.... - Don and Pat
Jul 2011 - $15.00
Dumpy campground. Was worth just about what I paid. Wi-Fi not available at my rig. The road into the campground is difficult but passable for a big rig. Nice open field with baseball diamond, basketball court and volleyball court. The areas for the permanent or seasonal guests were trashy but not seen by the campground area. This campground is also under major earthwork renovation. Small lake with beach...I would not like to swim in it. - matparis

We camped here under Passport America rates. The entry roads are in need of some grading but are not the worst we have used. The sites are a little short for large units but they do have a few sites that will work for a 40 foot rig. The WiFi did not work at our site but our Verizon signal was very strong so we used that for the internet. There are many seasonal sites that could use some cleaning up. We probably would not camp here again. - corky506

This was a fantastic campground. You are greeted by a 1st class office/store and friendly professionals and admitted through a monitored gate. Sites are spacious and shaded along a river. There's up-to-date shower houses, which are clean and hot. They do require 50 cents to operate. The kids loved the swimming hole on the river. There's tennis, basketball, playgrounds, rec room and much more. We hope to come back again. - breakingwind

Very nice CG, friendly office staff, my site as requested was across from a bathroom. Lots to do in the Mt. Washington valley, but leaf peepers make the traffic back up into the next state.
I camped here in my Volkswagon Westfalia. - JudoJeff

Super nice campground in an awesome spot. Beautifully maintained and the staff were very friendly. The kids loved tubing on the river. Our site was clean, level and near the river. Pool is nice and clean and we enjoyed the arcade and tennis courts too! We will definitely be back. - Kirsten Fischer

Right off of the main road, road to campground is dirt and you have a hump to go over at the entrance then through a tunnel of trees. We didn't have a problem, but looks intimidating. Roads are paved and dirt, sites are grass and dirt. Our site was level. Power and water were good, cell (AT&T) was weak. No road or R/R noise, but you could hear Storyland next door. Close to shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again. - kmgulf

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend and nearly had the campground to ourselves due to the very cold, rainy weather. This is a clean campground very suitable for young children. You can walk to Storyland and you can also hear the noise from Storyland when it is running but it's not overly loud. Bathrooms were clean and everything worked as advertised. Some field sites had puddled water on them. We will camp here again. - sbradley

It is not the newest campground around. It is clean and right next door to Storyland which was why we stayed. It would of been nice to of had a heated pool and swings for smaller children. - Canadianfamilyfun
