27 Parks near Lancaster, New Hampshire

I have been coming to this campground since 2007. Every year there are upgrades and improvements. The pervious summer the owners added two water slides and enlarged the swimming pool. I had a premium site which overlooks the lake on the property. The lake allows swimming, fishing, kyacking, paddle boats. The campground is very well maintained and the owners and family are very friendly and helpful. There are several new cottages on the lake side of the campground too. This is by far my favorite campground ever and why I return year after year. It is truly a very family friendly campground with activity for children including a wagon ride around the park. There is a mixture of sites in the open and some more secluded sites with plenty of shade. The back side of the campground is a bit more hilly and roads are easy to navigate. They always have fireworks on the lake on the 4th of July. This is a gem in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. - Camper Jay

We used this campground as a base for exploring the White Mountains. It is probably located a little too far north for such exploring, but it's still a good starting point.
This campground is VERY WELL taken care of by nice owners. They were very accommodating t our requests. We had our mail forwarded here and they made sure they picked it up from the post office on the day it arrived.
The campground is well maintained. The sites closest to the road might be a little tight for big rigs and you will experience road noise. But they have a lovely view of the lake. We ended up at the back of the campground down in a valley due to our size. It was very easy to get in and out our site and no road noise was heard. The site was grassy with a gravel pad, a bit of shade.
There are some seasonal sites, but they are well kept up.
The pool is excellent with a slide the kids would love. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers. We didn't use the restroom facilities. The WiFi was very good and accessible most of the time. We would experience an occasional slowdown. Verizon 4G was very strong.
All in all, this is a great campground. It didn't get 5 stars due to the sometimes variable WiFi and the road noise at the front campsites. But we would definitely stay here again. - cmgoeke

A clean well maintained family owned campground with a special area in the valley for big rigs. The owner who owns a Class A was a delight to talk with and very accommodating. We will return if ever near this area again. - GICUR12

This is a huge park with amazing views of the White Mountains. Other reviews mention being too close to neighboring sites and noise and commotion from other campers. During our stay, there were very few occupied sites so that was definitely not an issue. We found it to be peaceful and quiet. Interior roads are paved but rough in spots. Sites are grassy but most are level. - Heart

This was an awkward, pull through grass site. Since the grass was wet, I needed 4X4 to pull up the grassy slope, into the site. Due to rain, my truck tires tore into the lawn, and my trailer slid slightly sideways and tore gouges in the grass. I needed a one inch board to level side to side. I had to lower the front of my travel trailer to within six inches of the ground to level the trailer, front and rear. The rear of the site was so steep; I had to pull my trailer ½ of the way into the site so I was comfortable my trailer would no slide backwards when unhooked. Sites did have a fire pit and picnic table. The access roads are asphalt and very narrow. I was able to navigate the roads but I was unable to avoid dragging my trailer wheels over the grass on numerous turns. There was a charge for WI-FI. This is not a campground I would return to. - travelcouple

This campground offers really good views of the White Mountains. The grassy sites are terraced into a large hill which overlooks a valley and then a range of mountains. It was beautiful. That being said, this is a campground which has become a little worn around the edges. Everything is clean and nicely landscaped, but the picnic tables are wobbly, the signs are rusty, and the buildings all need a coat of paint. It was still a great place to stay with many good pull-through sites and some great sites for tenting in the woods. The owners were friendly and helpful. The campground was very quiet and did not get highway noise. We would go back again. - Waukenabogirl

The dryer was broken, the site was sand and the sewer bubbled over at our site. There are several permanent trailers, RVs that need to be removed, and cleaned up.
The river has very little water just a small place to swim. The power went out at our site 3 times. It's very hard to drive thru and park. The staff is wonderful and the owner did give us a discount to stay: $40.00 a night for 3 nights. - Sabrina421960

This is an older campground. Only electric we could see was 20 amp. Since the campground is close to the White Mountains, this isn't all that bad, but could be at least 30 amp. Most sites are fairly level, but all are grass and our 15,000# fiver sunk in a bit. Store is good and facilities are clean. While sites are close together, they had few here so there was no crowding at all. - Walt Bennett

This is NOT a resort! Just an average campground. As stated earlier, this campground is not designed for anything over 35'. Sites are good sized and fairly level. The campground is well maintained with gravel roads and grass/gravel sites. Utilities are well placed and function as designed. Wi-Fi is poor to none, depending on location of site. Verizon service is weak and very slooow. They do have two nice pools, one of which is heated. Definitely not a good value for the price. - lllkrob

While listed as big rig friendly, it isn't. The turns within the campground are too sharp, tree overhangs are many. If you are 40 feet or longer, look elsewhere. Many seasonal renters who were quite friendly. Has two pools and two hot tubs. A buffet breakfast is set up every morning for $8 for adults. Landscaping is tasteful. Internet was very slow or non-existent. Would not return. - EdGuru

This campground is located across the street from Santa's Village amusement park so it attracts a lot of families with small children. For those families, this would probably be a 10 as it is neat with clean restrooms and nice looking swimming pools. Unfortunately we didn't realize this when we pulled in for a one night stopover. While we do like children, there were just a lot of them, many tired from a long day and some without adequate parental supervision, so a lot of crying, shouting, and other commotion well into the evening. So if you have small children and want a great place to visit the amusement park, this campground is for you. If you want a peaceful evening, then suggest looking elsewhere. - GAnnie

Can't complain - a very nice campground. We had an 18 foot trailer. Our site was right beside laundry. Only draw back was at night very bright light shined in camper all night, but we blocked it out the best we could. People very friendly, very nice pool, Santas Village down the road. Would stay again, but would request a space couple sites away from laundry. - HappyCamper67

This is our first time staying at Fort Jefferson Campground. We chose this CG because it is in northern NH, and had hoped for a northern NH camping experience. Unfortunately it is another CG that caters primarily to its seasonal residents. Our site (98) was at the end of a row of sites, completely open with no shade whatsoever. With my rig set up the kids had barely enough room to play on our own site. The constant onslaught of kids on electric cars & bikes got old. I understand that there isn't much room to roam, but these cars going by every 5 minutes (starting at 7:00-7:30 AM) makes it impossible to enjoy a quiet coffee in the AM. Even the owner (I assume it is the owner, he is the only one driving around on a "Gator" vehicle, no other gas powered vehicles on the property) drives around the whole place giving his kids rides....all afternoon...EVERY DAY. It is enough to drive you crazy. If you don't believe me, try it out for a weekend...you will see. The bathroom (one for the whole place) was consistently dirty and ran out of TP almost every day. The showers (albeit free) had very inconsistent hot water. The park next door (Formerly Six Gun City, now called Fort Jefferson Fun Park) and the CG are owned by the same family. I understand the need to stabilize income, and open to seasonals (its happening everywhere now), but this is getting out of hand. The "clique" atmosphere takes over at these places, and makes us traditional campers feel as if we shouldn't be there. I'm not saying the folks weren't nice, but when you go to do the one thing there is to do (the pool) and it is overrun with one family (we learned that one family has 7 seasonal sites here, all with 3+ children each....you can imagine the size of this group!) it definitely puts a damper on your plans. The people were nice, the facilities & sites were subpar, the CG was mostly occupied by local seasonals (most lived mear minutes away). Fort Jefferson Fun Park was entertaining for the kids, but it is not even a shadow of what it used to be. It kills me to see a great little park die slowly like it appears to be doing. I wish they would partner with other local parks & businesses to help improve their situation. If you ever wanted to see Six Gun City, or if you remember it from your childhood, you better check it out before it is gone forever. Sants Village is just a 10 minute drive away too... Bottom line, we will not be returning to the CG. - BigNuge

The draw of this campground is Six Gun City, same owners and they offer length of stay passes. Many seasonals that seemed mostly neat, no build structures. Sites are tight and you can only do so much with Six Gun City which is geared to the very young. New owners are expanding and improving so in a few years could be better. New bathhouse would be a great direction to go as the one they have is very dated. - Justafan

I expected cleaner grounds at a KOA. Others that we have stayed at are much better maintained. Staff in the office and the 2 gentlemen who were cleaning the pool one morning were friendly. Others who were driving around in the golf cart I barely got a smile out of. I am SO glad that our site got changed as we were originally given a pull-through site and those sites are TERRIBLY close together. Site options are electric only, electric and water, and full hook-ups. We had a 'full hook-up' site. But it didn't include cable. Cable was only available on some of the 'full hook-up' sites. I think those sites should be noted on their map. The bathrooms were VERY clean and decorated nicely. Lots of local information available in the laundry room which I thought was a nice touch. Little store was pleasant and well stocked. - Genny

Great campground. Near so many outdoor activities it is a great base camp. Yes, you can hear the traffic, especially truck traffic , on the highway but after a couple of hours it blends into the background. Would definitely not use that as a reason for not staying here again. Between the owner and the rest of the staff, you can feel nothing but welcomed here. Great sites for tent campers also, we shared our time with the Boy Scouts out of Pittsburgh, Pa and they way the campground is laid out, you never would have known they were there, They were not bad, do not mean to say that, just the campground is laid out extremely well for everything from big rigs thru tent camping. Very relaxing time. Motorhome and camper sites for pull thrus are next to each other but the use of trees and boulders give you a very private feel on each site. Had to unhook dingy but no big deal, going to do that anyway. - Bill VDA

We had a pull through site for a one night stop. The site was level and everything functioned well. Staff was friendly and helped me diagnose a propane tank issue. It was scenic, quiet, and a perfect overnight stop. - SKT

OK for those with a self-contained unit, would not stay there otherwise.
Weeknight rate is PA of $17.50, Friday and Saturday rates are $35. Sites are lovely, heavily treed (careful with those slides) and very quiet at night. Most sites are spacious but some sites are eroded and need levelers. Other reviewers have commented on the bathrooms, nothing has changed. Washers and dryer are outside the bathrooms, under an overhang and exposed to the weather. One washer had a large spider web over the coin insert, the dryer was unplugged. No OTA channels but Verizon worked fine.
Exit road had major rain ruts that would cause issues for many RV's. Hubby U-turned our Class A to exit out the "entrance" road.
Really nice folks at the office but we probably won't be back. - Mom_of_Two

Price reflects PA discount. Previous reviews amply describe this rustic park. The owner was very helpful but not very conscientious about campground upkeep. The gravel roads have deep potholes and the single washer and dryer are exposed to the weather and didn't look functional. Both bathroom doors have large screen openings, providing limited privacy. Our full hook ups worked fine, but the forest canopy was too dense for AT&T reception and the only place to get WiFi is apparently beside the office. However, there's a very nice library just a few miles away in Bethlehem with free WiFi. On the positive site, this park is reasonably priced for PA members and close to some beautiful country. - Camera Buff

Campground is in the small village of Bethlehem, NH, great base for touring the White Mountains area. Check-in went fast & easy, owner was friendly & helpful with directions, to attractions & place to shop & eat. Ice & Firewood available on site. Interior roads are dirt, and all sites are fully wooded. Ours was a pull thru with full hook-ups, un-level with a lot of rocks & tree roots, which I guess you can expect when you camp in the woods. With FHU's we didn't use the bathrooms or showers, so I can't comment on them. There are a number of permanents, but nice separation with the trees. We got quite a few TV channels on the OTA batwing antenna, not sure satellite would be an option in the woods. Our rate was with Passport America, if in this area again we would stay here. - bukhrn

Level front to rear an issue. Back in grass site up hill to rear. To level had one front wheel off ground. Tight turns out of campground. - Casy

Previous posts are on point. Good location, large, level, shady sites with easy hookups. Cable worked well. Staff efficient and helpful. Wi-Fi only worked (work being a relative term) at office and wasn't worth the effort even though they provide a desk. Other posts grumbled about the interior roads. These grumbles were well deserved. I did manage with a 33 ft class A without difficulty. I would stay here again for the location and site benefits. - plove

Good points: Nice size sites. Woodsy. Most have good privacy. Ours was carved out of a hill and required extra wood planks for the levelers to get level. Very nice staff. Cable TV worked well with lots of stations, but very few HD channels.
Bad points: WiFi only works very close to office. No WiFi at our site and Verizon wasnt reliable. We travel for months at a time and since we have to take care of our affairs over the Internet and research future destinations, I never give high ratings to campgrounds with sub standard WiFi. Roads are VERY narrow, overgrown in areas, very dusty, and areas with ruts. Your vehicles will be very dusty. Sandy RV parking area - levelers sunk into sand overnight. Unlevel- required wood planks under levelers. Other campgrounds more convenient to attractions. Nothing much nearby. Typically traveled 20-25 miles to see attractions in White Mountains.
If none of my issues are important to you, it really is a nice campground; I enjoyed it except for above issues. We have a 40' motorhome and stayed 4 nights. I would prefer to not stay longer than 2 nights due to WiFi. Our site 168 had really unpleasent afternoon sun and we did not want to be outside until after 6:30. - motorboater

Quiet campground at the time we were there. Mostly seasonals that are immaculately kept. Beautiful grounds. Clean, heated pool. Very well maintained. Dog friendly. We would stay here again. - sbradley

WIFI only available close to the office is the only reason we did not give this campground a perfect 10. Everything else was absolutely excellent. We had a large pull-through site that was easy to navigate. Every evidence that the owners really care about the place and their guests. All was neat and tidy. Utilities all worked fine. Owners were most friendly and helpful, providing great tourist info and local knowledge. About 7 miles off the thruway, the location beside the river was perfect - quiet and calm. Location was ideal for us, just north of the main tourist areas - Mt Washington, the Notches, Bretton Woods, the Conways. We would definitely return here. - User2918

This is a delightful campground with very helpful and friendly management. It is located a few miles out of Concord and is very quiet. The sites are large, and there is grass and trees between you and your neighbor. There is gravel at each site, and it was the most level place we have been. We took a factory tour of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, visited a creamery, and bought cheese, and visited the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe. We recommend this RV park highly and will go back and stay longer the next time. - rolling homeless
