36 Parks near Conway, New Hampshire
Oct 2016 - $35.00
A very pretty campground with some historic significance. Our site was flat and level, with plenty of space. I find $35 a little pricey for no services, and it was close to the road. But with fall colors being at their height, it was beautiful. - Kvw613

This park is clean and quiet. Sites were easy to back into even with new 5th, if you stay on right hand side of park. Sites are a little closer together than some of the other Federal Parks we have visited. Lots of hiking nearby, direct connect or short drive. We will definitely be back. - cbshea02

Beautiful and spacious sites, ours was adjacent to the river. Very quiet. Would definitely return. - marsharini

Campground is in the forest immediately adjacent to the Kangamagus Highway. Most if not all are back-in only and the "driveways" are pretty narrow. Campground itself was quite spacious however, with a picnic table and fire grate as the amenities. Couldn't enjoy these due to the clouds of mosquitos on a warm, rainy day. No showers or flush toilets, just a couple of outhouses (which we didn't use) and potable water spigots on the loop road in the camp. For these "higher end" amenities, RVers on the Kangamagus need to stay at the Jigger Johnson Campground ten minutes down the road. All in all, we got our twenty dollars worth for a night's dry camping amid the tall pines. Doubt that we'll be back. - TennTrek

This was our first visit to Passaconaway. It is another National Forest campground along the famous Kancamagus in the White Mountains. There are no hookups or showers but some of the sites are along the Swift River. There are about 32 sites in the woods and some are just beautiful with the tall trees. It is a quiet campground with a host. It is so close to Jigger Johnson, that one can drive there to use the showers which are pay. This campground is not open in the winter, but it fills up in the summer after Jigger Johnson is full. There are campers that prefer this campground to Jigger Johnson. We camped here in a 25 foot motor home in the fall of 2006 and did not have problems getting in. It costs about $17 a night. All of these National Forest campgrounds are on a self-pay system so make sure you have the exact change to put into the envelope. - 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
Oct 2013 - $46.00
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

Large, private, level sites rangers and hosts were visible but not intrusive. Excellent showers. Great hiking in the area. This is great dry camping. Very easy back in sites. - Ronahue
Oct 2006 - $19.00
This is one of our favorite National Forest Campgrounds in the White Mountains along the Kancamagus. There are flush toilets and pay showers and the sites are big with lots of trees. It is a great place to ride a bike and it is along the Swift River. It is near the Russell-Colbath National Historic Place an 1830 homestead that you can walk too. When we were there, the new barn had fiddlers performing all through the day. There a few places to walk down to the river and some have a great place to swim in the summer. There is hiking near by and the whole highway is great for visiting with waterfalls, hiking and just relaxing. There are a number of campground hosts. They do not take reservations here but the campground fills up fast and is hard to get into in the summer. It is almost in the middle of this great highway and when the leaves are turning it is spectacular. We camped here in a 25 foot motor home and it was $19 a night and half for golden age. It is not open during the winter. All of these National Forest campgrounds are on a self-pay system so make sure you have the exact change to put into the envelope. - gsnakehill

This is another National Forest campground in the White Mountains. I love this campground. The sites are huge and private with a lot of tall trees. There is a river that runs in the back of the campground and one can walk to it (very close to some sites)and swim in the summer. Big groups are welcome here and it is still very quiet. It is on the Kancamagus Highway with river swimming, hiking and beauty. One can drive to the Old Man in the Mountain (which is not there anymore) or to North Conway for shopping and food in less than an hour. The golden age pass is accepted here with 50% off camping fees. They were not accepting reservations and generally you don't need them except for some busy weekends in the summer. This might change since there are a number of National Forests Campgrounds in this area that are taking reservations now so check online at the National Forest website. - gsnakehill

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
Sep 2010 - $15.00
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

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
Aug 2013 - $55.00
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
