Absolutely gorgeous campground! Sites are well spaced and you can get wooded or open campsites. The tent area was nicer than most state parks. The shower rooms are individual and private. The wifi was inconsistent and the cable wasn't really clear on all channels but to me those are minor compared to how pretty the park is. They clean each site before the next camper arrives. I would definitely come here again. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overpriced , but this seems to be the custom in the east. Campground was very nice and would stay there again. This looks like a family campground that has a running creek that kids can get an inner tube and safely float the creek. Its for young children and water is about 2' deep. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I cannot say enough good things about this fantastic place. A gorgeous family-run campground with tons of activities for children and families. Friendly, helpful staff. Depending on your preference, you could have a wooded, private site or park in a well-maintained grassy field closer to other campers. The bathrooms were immaculate. The putt-putt course was well maintained and new looking. They offered a safe, modern playground, a basketball court, horseshoes, ladder ball, etc. My children were so excited by the shallow float path set up on the stream that flows through the campground. We also enjoyed exploring the lovely hiking trail off the back of the campground. We also appreciated the fun, organized activities such as "Halloween in July" and "Candybar Bingo." I could see us coming back here again and again. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tons of fun things to do in the area, but our favorite was the "Lost River Gorge," where we all got to climb around and through caves.

This is the kind of RV park that you wish they all were like. Large, relatively private sites, some wooded, some open surrounded by a forest. On a lightly traveled road only minutes from all the White Mountains attractions and from I-93. Yes, there are a lot of rules, but they are "gently" enforced by the very nice couple who own the place. I don't mind rules when they make for a well-run park and aren't excessive. They don't have many sites that can take rigs as big as our 40' MH so call in advance if that's what you have. We liked it so much that we've reserved a week in September. Discounts are given for stays of a week or more. The park is spotless and everything is well trimmed. Roads and sites are gravel; our site was an enormously long pull-through that was in the open enough that we could get satellite TV. I know there was another large site that is wooded because I was given a choice of either. The Wifi was slow which was the only complaint I can think of, but the Verizon 4G signal was excellent. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our first family camping trip with our 5yr old. When we first arrived we met one of the owners I assume who was extremely nice. She gave us alot of information about places to bring our son to, directions, recommendations, etc. The site was nice and private. We had a river site so we could hear it well, but still had to walk through the beach area in order to go in the water... not a big deal though. Restrooms/showers were close by and very clean. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a great little campground, our favorite. Great owners who are very welcoming. They maintain the campground and the rules very well. We were looking for a quiet restful vacation and that is what we got. WiFi was good as were all hook ups. Our site was in the open area and not the wooded area which was nice on the cool mornings as we got the morning sun. The campground is in a great area to visit all the White Mountain attractions. Will return for sure. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is my new favorite park. The location in the White Mountains is beautiful. It has some really nice hiking trails adjacent to the campground. The proximity to area attractions is great. It has plenty of space in the front of the park for folks to shoot hoops or play volleyball, horseshoes, a ball field, a playground and mini-golf. The seasonals are friendly and informative. One of them gave me directions to a trail that lead to a huge beaver dam. I went there at dusk and got some good pix of the locals. The rules some people complain about are part of what makes this a good destination for me. It's quiet time at 10:00 PM. Period. 10 years ago that might have been a problem. Now,it's a good thing. If you're a late night party animal, best to camp elsewhere. There appears to be a good amount of organized activities, however we were there for a long weekend and didn't get too involved with it. No problem, this is a place where you can do as much or as little as you want and have an enjoyable stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Just a beautiful, clean and well maintained campground. My only regret is I didn't see a bear. Maybe next time. We will be back for sure. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very family oriented campground. Staff were friendly and helpful as we checked in at dusk. Would definitely recommend this campground. Had both secluded sites in the trees and open sites in a field RV park area (of course, not as much privacy as one would have in the trees). However, we had a great site on the edge of the field near the washrooms for our overnight stay. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is the best park we have been to in 23 years of camping and has the most amazing owners we have ever come across. We just camped here for the first time and spent 9 wonderful nights here. The campground is spotless and the sites are so nice. The sites have rock to park the trailer on and to open the awning over so no need for rugs or anything. There are many tent sites and some real nice ones along the river. Each tent site has an area of raised bark mulch to set the tent on and then plenty of space for the car, fire pit and picnic table. Most sites are very private, we had a full hook up pull through that was real private. There are a few back in sites were you are lined up but they are plenty large enough. The bathrooms were very nice, the store had everything you needed. The front of the campground was an open field with a soccer field, baseball field, volleyball, mini golf, horseshoes and ladder golf among other things. I can go on and on about this campground because we just had the most wonderful week we could have and we cannot wait to get back there. I think this is the first 10 I have given to a campground without a pool. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had high expectations for this campground that just didn't come to fruition. The campground is definitely clean and safe, the creek is nice, and the play area for the kids is up to date. However, the sites are very close to each other, and we didn't have the privacy we were hoping for. In addition, the sewer connection at our site was high and nearly level with the camper's black/grey tank drains making it a challenge to empty the tanks. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of my favorite campgrounds in NH. If you looking for someone who really tells it like it is, it's me. I won't give a campground a good rating unless it deserves it, and this campground is great. Sites are spacious enough, and the campground is active but not noisy. The only issue: our camping neighbor's dog came over to our site to do its business. We scared it away, and our neighbor came over and cleaned it up. Pets are supposed to be leashed, and I'm sure if we had complained the staff would have done something. We felt it was taken care of just fine. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have an RV and camped near the river. For those of you who have tents there are some great options along the river where RVs don't fit. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground. Owners are very attentive to detail. If you are camping in a tent, then this site is magnificent. There are only 12 RV sites with full hook ups and some of these only have 30 amp. We were in a pull through 18A which was a 50 amp site, about 90' long, very wide, and private with tons of space. Great for kids, with lots for them to do. Just outside Franconia with a few restaurants, stores etc. within walking/cycling distance. Wi-Fi worked great, AT&T was patchy, Verizon worked fine. Great hiking close by. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Motorhome.

One of the nicer campgrounds we have stayed in. Lots of trees, grass and foliage. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel. The stream and roads/trails through the forest behind the RV sites was especially nice. Our rate reflects full hookups including cable. We camped at Fransted Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
