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. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of day trips from here. Take the Kancamagus Highway over to Lincoln and check out covered bridges and the Nat'l Park.

Drive north to Gorham and Mount Washington.

Drive to Weirs Beach on the SW park of the lake and go on the U.S. Mail Boat for two hours while it delivers mail to the islands.

These and more made the stay worthwhile despite the issues with the campground.

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. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a typical campgound with many different sites available. There are great sites for RV and motorhomes, and tents and popups. Its located in a busy area of New Hampshire so its a great location to navigate from for shopping. All the pull-thru sites are excellent and most other sites are good. For tenters they have shelters at each site so you can do them up as you wish so you can get good coverage in case it rains. We liked our stay there and we definitly will be back.

This is a nice campground, but the only reason we came here was for a "premium riverfront site". They guaranteed us a view and there are no views! We found one site with somewhat of a view and it was a 110 tent site. All other riverfront sites have trees and bushes blocking the view. They moved us to a pull thru site so we would have sewer and that was a very nice site. The people were friendly as were the other campers. We had to switch to our own Wi-Fi because the campground Wi-Fi was very poor. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

We returned here for the long weekend and fair. The campground had a major flood from Irene so the park still had evidence of severe flooding. However, big kudos to re-opening and managing to get back to normal. The campground has numerous sites and the draw is that the campground is family friendly and located near all the major attractions of the valley. The management was very pleasant and even with a full campground it was fairly quiet after 10PM. We would visit again. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

This is a campground, not an RV park. Lots of families, tents, popups, travel trailers and campfires. I would use the word "unkempt" to describe the property. Interior roads are mostly dirt with some very rough paved stretches. Nice location on the beautiful Saco River. Convenient to North Conway and area shopping and attractions. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Not a pleasant experience for us. Bathrooms and showers were dirty and one day had no hot water. The sites are one on top of each other. Lots of kids and in some cases 2-3 families sharing 1 site. Didn't quiet down till 11 or 12 at night. The neighbor's fire rings were right next to our trailer and the smoke came right into the trailer.

This campground is all about the location. It makes a great base camp to do things in the MVW area. However, if you want to "camp" and do things at the campground, this is probably not the place for you as there is little to do. The playground is very old and not young kid friendly, the store was not open when we stayed (late June), laundry is in the arcade. If you need firewood, be prepared, they charge $6 for a bag of 6 small logs. Pool is very small and I imagine during peak times must be very crowded. We will stay here again when we come to the area as all we are looking for is a base camp and spend the majority of our time not at camp. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Once again this campground is all about location and for that reason we gave the campground a 7. You are close to it all. Outlet shopping, golf courses, and the downtown North Conway. If you took away the location we would score this campground a 5. The campground has made significant changes with regards to the covered awnings and their electrical work. They moved the awnings some 12 feet away from the camper so that you can open your awning. However, by moving their awnings they also moved their electrical outlets some 15-20 feet away from our unit. Bring a long extension cord. Bathrooms were cleaned throughout the day and the showers were free. The WiFi signal was intermittent throughout the weekend. Not that I go camping to watch TV, but our site did not have cable TV and our antennae only picked up on 2 channels. If you use the campground as a hub and like to do things in the area, this campground is just the place. If you are looking for a campground to keep you busy with activities, this is not the place. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Camped there for the weekend. There was to much noise and a lot of drinking all night long which kept us awake. As for security they seemed like they did not want to respond to situation. Would not camp there again. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

There had been a lot of rain and part of the pull thru area was flooded. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a field next to the campground with a path that was nice to walk the dogs. We had good water pressure there. We would stay there again. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Motorhome.

I gave this campground a rating of 7 only because of the layout of the campsite. This campground is very close to all major attractions in the greater Conway area. The foliage was great! The campground had a little of everything (shaded/ open field / river side/ etc). Every site has a small pavilion that covers each picnic table. However, I was not able to open the awning as the site was not big enough due to the pavilion. The electrical for the site was on the opposite side of the camper and connected up by the roof of the pavilion. A little inconvenient! The bathrooms and showers were clean. Campground has a large playground and arcade for the kids. Store was well appointed with all the necessities. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Overall, not a bad place. Entrance road was paved but pretty rough. Thankfully, it is also short. Office staff was okay. WiFi is said to be available but was not working during our stay. Gravel sites required some leveling. Water quality was good but pressure was erratic. Store only open on request, but this may be due to it being early in the season. There were not many campers here at the time. Some of the wooded sites seemed a little tight, we stayed in the center open area. The two sand beaches along the Saco river were clean. No escort to site but they were well marked. Within two miles of Conway and shopping. Forty minutes to Mt. Washington. There is some road noise but not bad. We would probably check out some other campgrounds in the area before deciding to stay here again. It does appear that they are doing some improvements to the place.

We returned here this year and wanted to post another review based on some changes. The previous owners have sold the campground, and it is now owned by someone with no previous experience in running a campground. While this is not a bad thing I can say that it is obvious the camp suffered some between changes in ownership. The roads had gullies and standing water 1-2' deep in some areas, this is unacceptable as a quick use of a front loader and some gravel could fix this. The "new" bath house seems half-finished with just paint on the wood floor and no clean wall surface (just raw wood). Also, no visible site of a night crew keeping parties down and enforcing quiet hours like my previous posting. Also, the beach had many cans and trash on it. I hate to see this place go down the tube as we have family camped here for years, but the truth is the truth. We camped at Eastern Slope Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.
