We visit Ames Brook once or twice a year for a 3-4 night stay. The owners meticulously maintain all aspects of the campground. We particularly enjoy our fall visits when the foliage is at peak, and in time to visit the Sandwich Fair nearby. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Easy day trip to Franconia Notch State Park, Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill, NH (a must!), hiking, leaf peaking. Also a perfect spot to relax by a stream and read.
This is a great place. It is exactly what we were hoping for as fairly newer RVers. Great hook-ups, wide, level-sites. The brook running along two sides of the site was a beautiful feature. Well kept seasonals and quiet park. Great place, great stay (in spite of some rain) and we we will back! We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
3 rd time staying there. Nice small campground. Never used the bathrooms so can not say how they are. The sites are large with some trees between each site. Very quiet, with a friendly staff and within driving distance of white mountains (less than an hour) and outlet malls (30 mins). We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent RV park/campground. The sites are wide and well situated in the trees and some by a brook. All facilities are excellent: the laundry room and bathrooms are impeccable. There are many current magazine to read while you wait in the well appointed and comfortable lounge adjacent to the office and laundry. The pool is lovely. We give this park a 10 without any reservations. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This was our 3rd stay at Ames Brook Campground. Great "smaller" campground - smaller in # of sites, not size of them. There are about 80 sites in the campground, some in full sun and others in shade. Except for 3 sites, all sites are full hook up (the 3 are W/E for tents or pop-ups). Some sites offer 30 amps and other have 50. Facilities are spotless and camp staff always seemed attending to general maintenance. While we were there they were clearing tree limbs and brush to make sure roadways and driver visability were unimpeded. Bathrooms and showers were clean, laundry room offers 4 washers and 4 dryers. Store/office has just about anything you'd need if you forgot something, from food, to RV supplies to campfire needs and even toys for the kiddies or gifts and souvenirs. Everyone here was friendly, from owners to workers to campers. We really like the quiet of the campground. Daily rates are $37-$43 depending on the site. They accept Good Sam or Passport discount. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground for an excellent Passport America price (for 30 amp service). Full hookups, including cable and free Wi-Fi, were good. Restrooms were very clean. Park staff very friendly and helpful. Grounds were well tended. Small store in the campground had lots of choices. If the roads and sites were paved, it would deserve a 10 rating. We would stay here again. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Secluded privacy with large sites. Some are very long back-ins. Plenty of room for slides. Most have woods between sites. Gravel roads were good. Extra fee for 50 amp. ATT cell signal non-existant. Verizon signal worked. Up fee for 50 amp=$2/night. Fee is with Good Sam discount. Free Cable TV which is decent and Free Wi-Fi. Pool and playground. Laundry 24/7 with decent rates. I liked the posting of the time the machines take so I could leave and return. Veterinary information posted in laundry for emergency. Not too busy when we were here so lots of peace and quiet. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
Overall a great campground in a central New Hampshire location! Amenities include a playground and pool for kids, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi. Many sites are big rig compatible. Some back ins are very long, perhaps 100 feet. The camp warns that low lying sites are prone to flash floods. Interior roads are gravel and only in fair condition. Sites are sand and gravel and well spaced from each other. ATT phones and data get no signal but Verizon worked well. Small up charge ($2) for 50 amp. They offer Good Sam and Passport America discounts. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean campground with nice, level sites that are graveled. We stayed Memorial Day weekend and it poured rain, but the site didn't get muddy. We had the creek behind our site which our boys enjoyed. Cable TV and decent internet helped with the rainy weekend. Would stay here again. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We chose this park because they are Good Sam and Passport America - however, we came in on a holiday week, so no discounts. They did however, have stay 6 nights get 7th free. Also, Wi-Fi has a daily charge unless you stay a week or longer. We were a bit concerned as we drove in as there's a sign saying 10'9" bridge ahead (small sign below say 5 miles, ABC is only .5 miles in so no worry). Office is in store / general building. Very friendly and helpful staff - described what was where in campground (bathroom, showers, activity hall, game room, trash, etc.). Store has basic supplies and groceries - prices on par with other campground stores. Access roads are dirt and after a strong downpour, became mud rivers. Owner and work staff do a great job in campground improvements. Our site was a back in, but they also have a few pull-throughs. Site was on a hill, but ABC has terraced them so you are level. Some sites are only 30 amp while newer area, across brook and in woods have 50. Full hookups, 25+ TV channels. There are some sites right along the brook which are suitable for tents and pop ups - bigger rigs would do better to head up the hill into the wooded sites. All sites have picnic table and fire ring (dug in to the ground so you can't move it about). Swimming pool is on smaller size and old (tiles missing along edges) but kept clean. Several play areas for kids, swings, slides, single hoop basketball. Also volleyball net and horseshoe pits. Because it was a holiday week (July 4), they had some type of activity daily, but I get the impression it's usually just weekends. 82 sites, less than 1/2 are seasonal. Owners are strict in terms of quantity and quality of decorations and extras to those sites. Made me as a transient feel more comfortable not looking at everyone's kitsch. Although small in number of sites, it's a good distance between office and back lots so golf carts are used by a few seasonal folks (need to show proof of insurance). This is a great place to stay if you want to explore the area (Squam Lake 10 minutes, NHMS or White Mountains 1 hr). Very quiet and restful. We will stay here again if our travels bring us through this area again. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this quaint little campground. Lovely office staff whose helpful attitude and friendly demeanor was immediately inviting and appreciated. Nice easy drive off I-93 and easy to pull into their check in area. Checking in was quick and efficient in the office/store. Store was well stocked and prices of the merchandise was all very fair. The dirt and gravel roads were a little bit rough as we wound through the park, up the hill and onto our site -- but we just took it slow and it was completely manageable. The grounds are well kept and maintained. The brook, Ames Brook, that flows through the heart of the park makes for pretty scenery and nice ambiance. Out site was big and level and very well graveled. It did rain during our stay and our rig didn't sink at all and our site was not at all soggy or muddy - nice! On site picnic tables and in ground fire rings were provided at each site. We had a good cable selection too. Water pressure and 50 amp power were good too. We took our dogs for a walk on the nature trail, which followed the brook and then shot us back out through a big, grassy meadow. Our dogs loved it and we loved it too. Staff looked like they were working hard on various improvements... Always nice to see a park continuously improving... They were using some heavy machinery but did the noise never bothered us at all. One drawback was the serious lack of cell phone signal, we have AT&T for our phones and Verizon for our broadband internet card. Our AT&T phones got NO signal, I could get text messages in and out from one spot. And our Verizon internet was very, very slow due to very weak signal (about 1 bar). Close to lots of area recreation as well as conveniences. Gas station off the same exit, Wal-Mart is North on I-93 2 exits. The little town of Ashland is very cute with some neat little stores and restaurants to check out too. Overall, a great little park in a pretty part of NH. We would come back and stay here again. We used our Camp Club USA discount for 50% off the nightly rate. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
Good Verizon Voice & Data. Cable TV included, Wi-Fi extra unless staying 7 days or more. Easy access to Freeway. 1/2 price for PA except weekends. Lots of permanent rigs. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Motorhome.
We choose this campground for the semi closeness to the Loudon Speedway. The grounds and sites were clean and easy to get into. The pool was good. The wireless connection was not very good and since there was a charge was our only disappointment. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Came back to Amesbrook for a stay, and we must admit that the seasonals seemed to be much more friendly this year. What a great group of people. The sites and bathrooms were extremely clean, and the campground owners were of great help to us. There were fun activities for the children. (We had gone to another campground where they had several "hey" rides and it was quite annoying. All the kids drove me nuts.) This is a much more relaxed campground where we could have great family time together around the fire. We camped at Ames Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
