26 RV Parks near Contoocook, New Hampshire

Office staff ladies were great ! The computer had been off for 3 hours. She did a good job, not working with a computer..and allowed us to go to a site, later, a few hours later, the computer came back "on"and she verified the reservation we had made a few days earlier. The WiFi is very slow, we were within eye sight of the office, where the WiFi was located. The good news, we got 8 hours of free WiFi from the young lady at the office. The other nice lady tried real hard to get us hooked up to the Cable TV service. She was trying all the unmarked cable "on" site switches, but to no avail. So we got our $4 cable refund and disconnected. The sites are ample...and because we got there on May 8th at the start of their season, the place was fairly empty. Sewer connection at A26 is at about a 30 degree angle. So we simply stuck the raw end of our sewer flexible discharge line into their sewer line receptor and it worked fine. Our electric and water was on a down slope, you had to be careful not to fall down the slope, but the water and electricity worked fine. All in all, I would return for an over night stay..but without cable and WiFi, it would not be an inviting place to stay for a longer time. It is set in a nice forest environment. Office has a small store..good for temporary food. I liked the place. By the way, please be careful of the old covered bridge..it says it has a 9'9inch clearance, but my rig made it through, and we are 11 feet 3 inches in height. I checked the clearance before attempting to enter the covered bridge...and observed it was around 12 feet or more..so I went thru without a problem. I suspect the fake lower height is to discourage heavy rigs from using the old historic covered bridge. There is a short detour around to the south of the bridge to reach the park destination. I think it was a good value for my Passport America discount. - Joe O

This is not a resort. Dirty and unkept. WiFi and cable didn't work. Very hard for motor homes to get through. Office girl knew absolutely nothing about the campground. No one for after hours if there is a problem. Stay somewhere else. - BSBren

Limited choices in the Concord area, this is intended to be a destination campground and has a lot of seasonals. But it worked for me, I was in the newer section out in the open where my satellite dish worked, wifi did not. - ldukeb

Stayed in new 50amp gravel road area. Didn't have good feel of other seasonal sites plus golf cart drove behind your site for convenience from pool/ horseshoe pits. Nice pool and mini golf. Didn't find bathroom until leaving on seasonal side. My learning when they say they are putting you in the "new section". It maybe lacking the camping feel. Booked 9 mo ahead in hopes of a pond site. Be specific in what your asking for. - ThePattersons

Went here so that I could use internet as indicated by their website. We were put in a site with no or very sketchy wifi. They refused to give compensation for the bad service they provided and I feel that they advertised falsely. Management indicated that the sites where we were put are new and they probably need another repeater. This would have been acceptable if their website indicated that "most" sites has wifi access. The brochure that they hand out indicated that all sites have wifi access. The site we were in was gravel and level with no trees, kind of like a parking lot. Power sewer and water were as advertised. Walking the campground we saw a site that was flooded by a recent rain storm. Other than that the sites were quite pleasant and well maintained. I felt the value was bad because they failed to provide an advertised service and I could have stayed at less expensive campgrounds without wifi had I known that I wouldn't get it here. - JRK2224

The name comes from that this place is 1 mile off of Hwy 9/202. Aside from the sign at the entrance, there is no clue that this place is here as it is buried in the woods near a small lake. This is primarily a seasonal campground and about 10% of the sites are set aside for short term visitors. Of these, I noted only 2 pull through sites and there is a small tenting area as well. We were presented with one of those full color maps at registration showing our site, but had difficulty locating it as there were no signs pointing to which numbers were at each junction and I simply missed the turn. Someone on a golf cart noticed we were lost and led us back to where our site was. Similarly, there was a stop sign with the register here notice, but until you found the office at the far end, you felt you were going to someone's home. Since most are permanent seasonal residents, signs are not needed for them. That being said, this is a very nicely laid out campground in the hills and woods. We were there mid week and most of the seasonals were away, so it was a very quiet evening. Overall, this is a very nice campground and I wouldn't hesitate to return. The hills and trees prevent satellite and OTA reception. - Trailbuddy

This campground is a very good value for money with Passport America. The discount is accepted 5/7 days, so the weekly average is under $30. It is a very shaded campground, ideal for hot weather. There is a small beach, very peaceful in the evenings with some insect repellent. Most campers seemed to be seasonal, not even there during week days. Week days were nice. Weekend was crowded and loud. The spaces are separated by a lot of trees, but they are really close to each other, so if your neighbors are outside you hear all their conversations until they decide to go to sleep. A lot of dogs, too. It could have been the proximity, but it seemed like the customers of this campground were a different crowd: loud, inconsiderate, with undisciplined kids and dogs. Laundry room ok, showers cost money, had no hot water and water was barely dripping from the shower head. The staff was nice. - AandWK

With a little tweaking, this could be a nice campground, but as it stands, I gave it a 4. Why? First of all-too many trees in the wrong places. Now, don't get me wrong, I know we are camping, and I know trees are a part of camping, but this campground had trees up against and hanging over the bathhouse, which made the bathhouse damp and mossy. Also, the campground was too dark. Trees need thinning. And, the bathhouse was dirty and humid. Nothing I would want to use. Poor Wi-Fi. We were told there was cable TV. We got no signal. When we asked, we were told the signal was too weak. Our campsite had trash on it from previous campers. Our site had sand mixed with fine gravel. Since it was just my husband and myself, we took our shoes off, but kids or pets would have dragged sand into the camper. We stayed here overnight as we were traveling to Maine, and the campground was okay for an overnight, but I would not have stayed any longer. - kathyd

Wish I did my homework before I booked this campground. My small site was clean and raked before we arrived, but I was surprised to find a 20 amp fuse (yes, fuse) for 27' class C. After the 3rd one blew, I was told by the owner not to run my AC even though it was 80 degrees, and that I would be charged for any more fuses. I plug the camper into my house all the time and have never had this problem. We decided to ride it out for the weekend anyways, but will not be back. If you like to party, this is the place to be. The crowning moment of my weekend was watching a full grown adult place his empty beer can on my neighbors car antennae as he staggered by at 2:00 in the afternoon with his homeys. They thought it was hilarious. Also watch out for Fido's land mines. I didn't see any proud pet owners walking their dogs equipped to, nor caring to deal with this after the deed was done. Just one camper's humble opinion. Till next time. - bighead1946

We have been coming to the this campground for many years. It's a small place with two, out dated playgrounds, one being on the beach. The kids have fun never the less. You can hear the trucks going by on the highway at night but there is a Dunkin Donuts within walking distance to the campground. There is shuffle board, mini golf, basketball, horseshoes, paddle boats, and a rec hall for the kids to enjoy. There are two beaches, one being bigger but both have a floating dock to swim out to and play on. The store and rec hall is kept clean but the ceiling needs some work. The huge fireplace in the rec hall is a nice place to sit on the cold or wet nights, though there could be some upgraded chairs for the adults to sit in. The electrical hookup is 20 or 30 amp and you need to be specific on your electrical needs when booking a site. If you need to use the AC, go for the 30 amp or higher if possible, other wise you will be blowing fuses the entire time you are here. The sewer hook up works just fine and there is good water pressure. There are several, long time seasonal trailers. Some appear old but none are neglected. The bathrooms are old and could use to be remodeled and tend to get dirty toward the end of the weekend. The seasonal campers are very involved in planning and organizing events and activities. Things such as theme dances, dinners, flea markets, Bingo, Texas Holdem games, apple picking, Christmas in July, trick or treating for kids, campsite contests, and fundraising events for different charities. The seasonal campers are watchful of the grounds and are approachable if you should need advice. The campground staff are friendly and responsive when something needs attention. People tend to respect the quiet hours but you will see some late night campers sitting quietly around the fire-pit talking. The campground is owned by a single woman who does her best to maintain the property. This is a great little place with lots of potential. Its great for a weekend get away though there isn't much for local attractions near by. My kids love this place, the best compared to all the resorts we have been to. We like it because it's two hours from Boston and is an easy trip with 2 young kids in the car. Despite the rustic surroundings the campground is kept clean and tidy. I would recommend giving it a try. It has grown on us over the years. - terry1999

Oxbow Campground is all about families, with a range of activities available & planned weekend events. About 20% of the sites are designated for short term (3 days or less); the rest are seasonal. Campers leave their RVs set up & return on the weekends. Golf carts were commonplace, as the campground is fairly spread out.
The weekend we were here, passing through one night on the way north, there was a Halloween celebration (in August) with full blown decorations, the kids in costumes, hayrides, a DJ. This made for quite a lively & noisy campground. The kids, including the teenagers, seemed pretty happy, and nary a cell phone in sight (no service!!).
Our site (90) was nearer to the front, and so we had a lot of traffic around us, coming & going: cars, golf carts, pedestrians, Halloween celebrators, maintenance workers, people walking dogs, etc.
We had low hanging branches on our site that looked likely to damage our motorhome on the way out of the pull-through. The owner was very responsive to our request & immediately took them down.
There are tight turns, some large rocks on the edges of the driveways & lots of branches throughout the park.
The wifi is limited to the area in and around the office. - RockyMountainMama

Having read the previous glowing reviews on this campground, we felt that this would be a great place to stay. We soon discovered how wrong we were! It's a very rustic campground and we drove down a narrow dirt road to get into our narrow dirt site which was long and level, however big rig access was marginal when entering and exiting our site. This campground is full of seasonal sites and a few are kept open for short term stays. This is definitely a place for families, and if you like lots of very noisy screaming unsupervised kids, this place is for you. The bathrooms were located in the woods and were old but fairly clean, we did not check the laundry out. No pet walk, so walk along the road at your own peril, and try to avoid kids on bikes. WiFi was nonexistent. We would not stay here again. - tobyjug

We enjoyed our stay at Oxbow. Our site was clean and ready for our arrival. While skinny, we made the site work and enjoyed it. Since we were camping in October, it wasn't that busy except for a few seasonal.. My boys enjoyed the ponds and the paddle boats; although, we didn't fish. For the price, the Oxbow campground is a real bargain. Even the wood was decently priced; $15 for about 35 - 40 pieces of wood. We look forward to our next camping trip at the Oxbow. - lopenzani

This park was a disappointment to us. The first thing that concerned us was the driveway going from the main road up to the office and campground. It was VERY narrow and had steep, deeply leaf covered embankments on each side -- it looked like if we hung a tire off the side, it would be a really big problem. After checking in, we drove back to our site through a security gate (which was always open, all hours), to our site. We were assigned a site in an open field area, across from the pool (closed for the season). There was no other campers in the entire area and we were given what seemed like the shortest site, on the very apex of the curve of the road, for our 40' rig. We still fit, but of all the sites, the assigned us that one... The sites were grassy, a little slick but all had fire rings. The road in front of the sites was dirt, and deeply rutted out. Overall, the sites were narrow and if we had neighbors, we would have had to park our car across the road from us. Across from us was the pool as well as what looked like a very old kids play set -- looked almost out of Vaudeville and I'm not sure if I would feel safe letting my kids play on the various apparatus for fear of equipment breakage or rusty sharp edges/protrusions?... There was also a very tired looking metal pavilion that resembled an old circus tent that had obviously seen better days. It did not bother us to be camping all alone, the privacy was nice and it was definitely quiet. Could not complain about the power or water, they worked fine. We were planning to stay 2 nights, but decided to just pay for 1 upon arrival since they did not give refunds if we decided to leave... It was a wise decision because we decided to leave after the one night. On our way out, as we turned the corner out of our field area, there was a pretty large fire in the grass out in front of a seasonal trailer. Upon a closer look, it turned out someone, not sure if it was the owners of the trailer or who, was burning the roof of said trailer. We didn't know what to make of the entire situation, but found it odd at best. Would not go back to this campground. Felt we paid too much for being after Labor Day and having zero amenities to offer. Also, pulling out of the campground (using the more northern driveway, as this campground has 2 entrances about 350 feet apart) onto the main road was a little hairy since there is a short, steep hill coming down to driver side of the driveway which blocks visibility of traffic... Plus the traffic coming from the passenger side is not very visible because of the angle of the driveway to the road. Please use caution if you do visit this campground. - WorldWideUnlimited

This campground did have a security gate but it seemed to be more of a trailer park than a campground. We camped in the field near the pool. There were not many people in that part of the park. It was quiet except for the noise of traffic on the highway behind us. The noise was not bad but for a "thousand acres" I expected to be away from the highway far enough not to hear it. The bathrooms were a long way away from our site so we did not use them. We did walk around the campground and were struck by the very large number of sites that appeared to be seasonal. Some appeared to have been there a very long time. A large dog tied outside of one unoccupied camper barked constantly and could be heard quite a distance away. While our stay was only overnight it was not bad. The site we had was grassy and did not appear to have a solid base that might make it muddy if the weather was wet. I would not look to this campground for a multi- night stay. Other than a very nice pool, there did not appear to be much for kids. - MECamper

Before reserving a tent site, I asked if this was a party campground. I was assured by their staff that the "Family" in the campground's name meant just that: the 11:00pm quiet time was enforced by their security. I wanted this reassurance as we were camping with our 3-year old and 1.5-year old twins for the first time. I somehow managed to fall asleep around 2:30am, being kept awake (with earplugs, no less) by the blaring music from the loud, drunk, seasonal camper neighbors. Luckily my kids somehow fell asleep around midnight. I got up and went for a walk around the campground at 11:30pm, looking for this so-called security. No such thing. I saw other campsites with fires going and music playing, but at least their music was a bit softer. So much for security, the supposed quiet time, and the "Family" aspect. There are two playground areas. The main playground has old, somewhat dangerous equipment. The other, has wooden equipment next to the bath house. The pool and bathrooms were clean. - Slappy Abernathy

This is a very large campground with lots of activity. Most of the sites were seasonal and the residents and guests get throughout the park in golf carts. We were here Memorial Weekend and it was so crowded you could hardly get to your site for all the kids on bicycles and the golf carts. This is a huge community of weekenders that leave their rigs here throughout the season. They had lots of staff that were very helpful. Interior roads are very tight. Had to unhook the tow to make the tight turns up the hill. - GMS Lucy

Great pool complex. Our site was plenty big enough, larger than many campgrounds we visit. Enjoyed a couple I've creams from the restaurant. Many seasonals with nice sites but they are some that are cluttered with too many tarps and canopies. The entertainment was enjoyable, loved the pool side music. - Happy Camper X2

We arrived in the dark Friday night to a very crowded and busy entrance. Crowded and busy from people, bikes and golf carts, which just makes me a little nervous trying to drive through. Our site was plenty big enough and easy to back into with our 40' fifth wheel with Freightliner.
They have lots of activities specially during the Family Fun weekend when we were here. The pools and hot tubs, yes plural, were the nicest pools and hot tubs and area we had EVER seen camping. Certainly looking forward to going back.
My only complaint was the communication from the office to the gold cart escort should be more clear, as they took us the wrong way and then couldn't go over a bridge, so had to back out part of the way to get turned around. - tshaunb

I gave this campground a 7 because a) it is one of very few options in the area and one of the best, and b) the staff was really nice. Otherwise might have been lower There is a huge variety of sites - some more private than others, some easier to get in, some full hookup, some W/E, some more sloping. We chose site 81 which is in a bit of a separate alcove with 3 other sites, W/E. It is next to the lake, and right next to the walking path along the lake. So it is much more private and quiet. The site was great when we stayed as campground was not full. Verizon stong - 3 to 4 LTE There are quite a few seasonal campers here who apparently leave their units over winter, or for periods of the summer, etc. I'm guessing summer and weekends would be quite busy The bathhouse we used was horrid - lots of bugs, not very clean. It cost a quarter for the showers! But WORSE was there was a dribble of water - hard to get hair washed. My husband paid his quarter and didn't bother showering. Shower head and handle flopping around - geez needs a lot of fixing. The office staff were great both on the phone and in person. We stayed here just for a night as we had flown into Manchester, rented RV, and then went to Maine for 2 weeks. Needed place near Manchester on nite before returning RV We are from Colorado - have a fifth wheel and truck camper - camp 10-12 weeks per year. Camping in Maine (and NH) is certainly different from the western US. - chinookgeo

We came here from Michigan for a family reunion. We had 5 adults 2 children and one grandma. Upon arrival they couldn't find our reservation. It wasn't a big issue they explained since they had plenty of sites available. I then asked if there was an additional site near it available. They explained that it was fine and told us site 90 and 94 would work best but we could take anyone we chose. Once we got to the sites they were taken so we took the other ones that were suggested. We set up the trailer on one site and 2 tents on the other. We had to pay extra for the additional adults. Sites were a bit unkempt but we were camping. We also had our newborn nephew over for an hour to meet him. We sat by the fire and caught up late onto the night. We got a wake up call in the morning asking us to come to the office. They explained that they were asking us to leave a day early. They went through a list of offenses. When we pulled in initially we went too far. They claimed we tricked them by adding an additional site and having. Them lose our reservation. We didn't pay for the additional tent on the second site even though we paid for the people. We had an extra unregistered vehicle which we assumed was addresses when we checked the vehicles in. We did not pay for our 6 week old nephew to visit. We had a fire too late(all though the owner admitted to driving past and said all was fine). She refused us a refund and claimed she would charge us for damage??? Overall the attitude and lack of respect from the owners was outrageous. I would strongly suggest staying far away from this campground!! - Michigan mommy

We were looking for a place fairly close to home and picked Autumn Hills. The owners are very friendly. The pool looked immaculate and there were lots of nice touches such as an e-z up over the picnic table at the playground. Our site was big and wooded. There is not much to do in the immediate area which was fine with us, but might concern people travelling with older children. - sbradley

Park is larger than it appears from the road. The owners are very helpful and co operative. There are a lot of locals who have permanent sites in this facility. We were allowed to recieve additional quests without additional cost. We picked a full hook up site and didn't use any of the parks facilities other than a clean well supplied outhouse.
I would definately stay at this park again. - Ritzigal

Very nice people run this campground. We came quite late in the season - September - so most travelers are gone. Most sites are seasonal, pretty well kept too. The river and beach are nice. Short distance to Concord, Camping World. It's just OK. I wish, wish the bathrooms had been cleaned the three days we were there - hair in abundance on the floor, slight garbage in the showers. - User2084

The grounds are generally clean. In particular, the staff are extremely friendly and courteous. I recommend calling ahead if you think you may need to extend your stay, so that they can arrange for accommodations. - leroyjones

As a racing fan and don't want to travel or get stuck in traffic, the NHMS is very accommodating. Basic rate is $100 and can stay up to a week before race. We stayed 4 nites for the $100. Of course need to buy race tickets for Sunday race. Different lots available, with family lots and what we called after our experience last year the 'party lot'. State troopers do try to keep 'fans' quiet. They do state 'quiet' hours, again state troopers do try to stick to rules. Need to be self-contained though as there are no hook-ups, etc. This year I did change to the 'family lot'. They do pack you in there too. So if you plan on leaving before Monday morning make sure you are parked on one of the roadways. But again, nice to be able to walk back and forth quite easily to track, but they do have shuttles to drive by the RV lots. Again, of course with my husband and I being nascar race fans, this is the way to go. - telm59
