This was a fantastic campground. You are greeted by a 1st class office/store and friendly professionals and admitted through a monitored gate. Sites are spacious and shaded along a river. There's up-to-date shower houses, which are clean and hot. They do require 50 cents to operate. The kids loved the swimming hole on the river. There's tennis, basketball, playgrounds, rec room and much more. We hope to come back again. - breakingwind

Very nice CG, friendly office staff, my site as requested was across from a bathroom. Lots to do in the Mt. Washington valley, but leaf peepers make the traffic back up into the next state.
I camped here in my Volkswagon Westfalia. - JudoJeff

Super nice campground in an awesome spot. Beautifully maintained and the staff were very friendly. The kids loved tubing on the river. Our site was clean, level and near the river. Pool is nice and clean and we enjoyed the arcade and tennis courts too! We will definitely be back. - Kirsten Fischer

Right off of the main road, road to campground is dirt and you have a hump to go over at the entrance then through a tunnel of trees. We didn't have a problem, but looks intimidating. Roads are paved and dirt, sites are grass and dirt. Our site was level. Power and water were good, cell (AT&T) was weak. No road or R/R noise, but you could hear Storyland next door. Close to shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again. - kmgulf

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend and nearly had the campground to ourselves due to the very cold, rainy weather. This is a clean campground very suitable for young children. You can walk to Storyland and you can also hear the noise from Storyland when it is running but it's not overly loud. Bathrooms were clean and everything worked as advertised. Some field sites had puddled water on them. We will camp here again. - sbradley

It is not the newest campground around. It is clean and right next door to Storyland which was why we stayed. It would of been nice to of had a heated pool and swings for smaller children. - Canadianfamilyfun

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

This National Forest campground is one of many along the Kancamagus Scenic Highway and the only one that takes reservations. Golden Age passes are honored here. I have always wanted to stay here but from the highway there is the Albany Covered Bridge that one has to drive through to get to the campground with restrictions of 3 tons and 7 ft for height. Our motorhome would not make it but I just found out if we drove to North Conway (tax free shopping) and took the West End Road to Passaconaway Road for five miles, one can enter the campground the back way. It was pouring the day we were here for a one night stay and there were some flood warnings. Logging trucks use the same road and they have the right of way. The campground has two loops with pit toilets but the sites are huge and level. A ten minute walk will get you to the river where many swim in the summer. You can also take some hiking trails in the area and if you pull a car you may drive it back over the covered bridge to go back and see the sights on the Kancamagus HWY. A short walk to the bridge from the campground is interesting and there are great places for picture taking. Nice campground and we would return! - gsnakehill

This is a large, family-oriented RV park. If you have a big rig and you want full hookups and satellite access, however, this probably isn't the best choice of parks. In order to have those amenities, we had to take one of the strangest sites I have ever encountered. It was a long pull-in (back-out) site with brushy trees which narrowed the width. After disconnecting our truck from our fifth wheel, I had to drive the truck through the RV park playground in order to get it back out onto the access road. Also, I had to do a bit of tree-trimming to ensure that we didn't scratch up our fifth wheel when we backed out to leave. Our site was a level, gravel/sand site with fire ring and picnic table with good hookups. The access roads were paved. There was a small heated swimming pool and a several nice play areas on attractive grounds. The WiFi was decent, but not extraordinary. Glass/plastic/aluminum recycling was available on site (no paper). - Byron Bailey

The main road coming in is small and curvy. If two big rigs met, it could spell trouble. The main road is paved but the secondary roads are dirt, and the sites are dirt/grass. All sites are not level and some sites had two or three tents. A posted speed sign was in place showing your speed and many vehicles were well above the maximum speed limit. This policy was not enforced and there were LOTS of kids. The park also charges $4.00 per dog per night. - Michael47

We greatly appreciated having Site 111 because it is spacious, next to the entrance to the Audubon trail, and near the Saco River beach. We enjoyed walking in the woods and wading in the crystal-clear Saco River. The campground is located on a quiet road off Route 16 in close proximity to shopping centers, restaurants, and adventures, but it affords views of the surrounding mountains, offers tubing and boating in the river, contains plenty of trees, and connects to the Audubon woods. Our truck would not start on the morning of our departure, and the owners were extremely understanding. They graciously moved our trailer to the field while we had our truck repaired. We are very grateful for their kindness and highly recommend this campground. - FADV

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

Tucked in Crawford Notch State Park, Dry River Campground is a rustic campground centrally located to Bartlett, Mt. Washington, Bretton Woods, Attitach, North Conway, and many other White Mountain activities. The campground is rustic, with no water or electric at the sites. There are pit toilets throughout the facility and a modern bath house with water, showers ($.25/ 3 minutes), laundry, and diswashing facilities. The bathhouse was very clean, even in rainy conditions. The campground was well kept with spacious, private sites. The attendents/rangers were available with wood to sell and change for showers. There was also a small information center as you enter. The dry river is small and fun to wade into, but do not be fooled by the "swimming hole" listed on the map. There was no depth for swimming and the water was quite cold. Overall, our family enjoyed the peace and solitude of Dry River Campground and would return. - dmaerz

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

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

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

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

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
