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

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 National Forest campground is one of many along the Kancamagus Scenic Highway and the only one that takes reservations. Golden Age passes are honored here. I have always wanted to stay here but from the highway there is the Albany Covered Bridge that one has to drive through to get to the campground with restrictions of 3 tons and 7 ft for height. Our motorhome would not make it but I just found out if we drove to North Conway (tax free shopping) and took the West End Road to Passaconaway Road for five miles, one can enter the campground the back way. It was pouring the day we were here for a one night stay and there were some flood warnings. Logging trucks use the same road and they have the right of way. The campground has two loops with pit toilets but the sites are huge and level. A ten minute walk will get you to the river where many swim in the summer. You can also take some hiking trails in the area and if you pull a car you may drive it back over the covered bridge to go back and see the sights on the Kancamagus HWY. A short walk to the bridge from the campground is interesting and there are great places for picture taking. Nice campground and we would return! - gsnakehill

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
Oct 2005 - $35.00
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

Very pretty park - $2/day extra for dog Road coming into park was paved and in good repair. Road leaving was really bad. Don't mind unpaved road - and this was at end of season - but the road was really bad. Everything else in the park was good. Power, wifi and cable all good. Be careful at entry to park. Entry gate pretty close after getting off the road. Dumpster for trash near exit - stop on uphill, no room to pull over. - MissingLinc

We stayed for 4 days in August. The campground is quiet, and they have an excellent camp store with almost anything you could want and more. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only down side to this campground is that the sites are not as spacious as I like, and the roads leading through the camp ground are very very tight, not easy to maneuver with an RV or travel trailer bigger than 21 feet. I also would not swim in the lake - use the pool. - CusiesMom

This campground was perfectly located to explore the many beautiful sights this area has to offer. We used it as a base for exploring the Ossipee Lake; Silver Lake;, Lake Chocorua; the Kancamgus Highway; the Swift River and Mt. Washington and the surrounding Presidential range. Check in was efficient. Our site was spacious and clean. The bathhouse, although old, was clean and the showers were hot and strong. Even though the campground was full, there was very little noise. We enjoyed the network of nature trails. Our dog loved the off leash enclosure. - Safe Trip

This is a clean campground with a beach on the Saco River. We are a 40' MH and need 50 amp. They only have 20/30 amp, but since we couldn't get a site elsewhere, we thought we could survive on 1 a/c. As it turned out, it wasn't that hot, but we were able to use an adapter and have 50 amp anyway. This is really a camping area, as their name suggests, and not set up for big rigs. Yes, you will fit, as we had a large, spacious pull-through site and had no trouble leveling. Sites are dirt. Getting in was easy, but getting out took some maneuvering. There were a few back-in sites closer to the entrance that would've been easier to exit. There's not much grass anywhere, but lots of trees for shade. It rained, and we had a large puddle near our door. We asked a worker to fill it with dirt, and within an hour, it was filled. Now, that's good service. The WiFi was really good as was the cable TV. Good Verizon cell service. Friendly, efficient check in with helpful staff. - Gayle E.

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

This is a large but segmented campground. They have 2 separate portions of the campground. We were in the section that was closest to the main field as you enter the park. None of these sites have full hook-ups, but they do have 20/30/50 amp, water, and cable (No sewer :( ). The other section that is closer to the river appeared to have many full hook-up sites. We camped the last weekend (Columbus Day Weekend) of the season. Check-in was easy and the staff were very helpful in the process. The campground was in preparation to close down for the season so there was minimal amenities. We stayed in site 236 which was a pull-thru site. The electrical, water, and cable post was at the rear of the site. You will need a fairly long hose and power cord. The electricity was sufficient and the water pressure was great. I did use the shower in the bath house ($.25 = 5 minutes). The shower was clean, but the bathroom could have used cleaning. We will be sure to camp here in the future. - clw_man

This is a very nice park. Right in town, but you'd never know as it is quiet and secluded. Fairly spacious sites, level and lots of beautiful shade trees. The river is on one side of the park with nice walking paths. We were there for 5 nights over Columbus Day holiday. The park was full, but everyone obeyed the 10 pm quiet hour. The town was very packed, so we stayed off the roads for a couple of days. Helpful and pleasant staff. Wifi was very good. - alm

This is a very large family oriented park.
Lots to do for the kids and family.
It's clean and well kept and staff was very accommodating.
It has a variety of space that should be able to please just about anyone.
When we were their at the end of September the park was less than 10% occupied. With the park so Empty we were surprised that they charge so much. - happyflyer

We really do "love it here" -still one of our absolute favorites - and 2015 was the best weather ever - which does make a difference at Danforth. 2 pools, activities for kids. Great Lake, swimming and kayaking. Security can be a little over zealous - they are very strict about the fire. We had a rainy day and were cooped up all day (no activities for teens on the rainy day) , rain died down and we started a fire - got a little late, but we were quiet - their truck came roaring over and the woman rudely told us to put it out. She stood over us until the fire was completely out. I get it, they need to keep control... but a little common sense... we find the golf carts roaring up and down more offensive. Besides that, it can't get much better - the only other things they could do to make it a perfect 10 is work on the bike park in the back for teens and maybe hot tubs. Our site was tight - but the sites near the back are woodsy and spacious. But a great family vacation, with lots to do! - User901

Large sites. Camped here in off season so not sure what park is like in season. Staff were friendly and courteous. Rented canoe and literally had whole Danforth bay to ourselves. Connects to lake Ossipie where there was one other boater, a motor boat with water skier. I'm sure this is not the case in season but week of Sept 22, 2014 park was relatively empty and bay was literally empty. Weather was great so if you want large sites, full hookups and the bay to yourself Danforth Bay is the place. Only down side internet service, both park wifi, verizon and att ( I tried them all with personal and work phone, hot spot, etc.) was very poor. Geographically it was expected though. Highly recommended for off season, cannot comment on in season. - Frankie Z

First time here. We have heard from several how much they love the place, so we had to try it. The pools were nice and clean. They have 2 pools which helps alleviate crowds, but we had no crowds this weekend. There is a really nice, but steep!, hiking trail taking you to a beautiful vista. There was a nice band in the Pavilion. Wish they had more of an audience, as they were pretty good. The arcade wasn't that great; few games and a couple of them were broken. Snack shack on site that had a lot of choices and not terrible pricing. They have a bunch of dirt mounds for boys to bike on moto-cross style located adjacent to baseball field. The lake beaches were well raked and peaceful with coffee first thing in the morning. The store is well stocked with a huge variety of clothing choices for sale. Biggest problem I had was the sites are on top of each other. We camped with friends next site over, thank goodness. If we had strangers that close, I would've been miserable. Also, there are mostly seasonals here. I found them to not be as friendly as those doing weekend stays. We did hear a lot of parties going on with the seasonal sites all around us. Nothing that affected us directly as they were several sites over, but if I heard it right next to me, I would've hated it. End summary is to definitely give this a try for a weekend and search around for sites you might like later. - KRaymond

We love it here. Beautiful campground with spacious sites. Some are very private and others are out in the open. Very quiet in the off season. Everyone is very friendly and we enjoyed our stay. You get to go to the Danforth Bay side to take advantage of their activities etc. We will return. - Happy Camper X2

Disappointed. I guess I expected a more upscale, more sites with views, satellite friendly park. Roads and sites are all gravel and are in good shape. When you enter to register, do not turn in by the store front. Go straight ahead and park on the roadside. This will save you having to make a u turn.
There are many seasonal guests and the sites range from rv's to park models. We found most guests friendly and helpful. Road signs could be bigger so you could set up for turns earlier. The entrance/registration sign could be better marked to show where to park for the Bluffs. Before the parking is where it should be with the other signs, not after. - peddy dick

Our second trip here and it was as good as the first. This is a very clean and quiet campground. We were able to go boating to check out the lake which is very nice. Not many were there for the weekend and there is definately more activity on the Danforth Bay side of the campground. The staff was good and check in was easy. We will need to do a week during the summer at some point to see the full operation. We love it here. - Happy Camper X2

Family campground is part of a Lutheran conference center/summer camp/day camp. This is a very family oriented campground. Campground was very clean and quiet, located on Lake Ossipee with a nice beach for the use of the family campground(summer/day camp has own separate beach area). Although this is a Lutheran run campground, there is no expectation or pressure to attend any religious activities. Activities included movie night, ice cream social and tye-dye t-shirt making. Bathrooms and showers were extremely clean at all times. Staff was very polite and friendly. You can also have meals at the conference center if you wish. Good food at very reasonable prices. We will definitely return. - JJZS
