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

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 an okay campground - a little tight for big rigs. It has gravel roads and pads with grassy areas between sites. In our section, we had no issues with trees or satellite, and the wifi was good. While we did not use them, it appears they have many amenities for kids, a great pool and waterslide. The campground is in the woods, so it's pretty quiet, but there is not much else in the surrounding area. - SMorin

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

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

Opinions about this campground are mostly positive, but not ours. The good.....easy to find and nice staff. The bad.....noisy (30 feet from the highway and so close to neighbors you hear every word if you're outside); big-rig space so narrow we had only 3 feet between our slides and our neighbors, had a tough time getting in and out, couldn't put our awning out because of trees being too close; mostly unusable WiFi; no Verizon hotspot and poor phone. Their advertised "rock-backed fireplace" is literally that.....A ROCK next to a rusty truck wheel rim. No room to park our truck beside or at either end of our fifth wheel. The corker was arriving 50 minutes early and being told we'd have to pay a $10 early check-in fee, then having them take 35 minutes to get us into our space because they put us in the wrong one first, then had to park someone else, then finally got back to us. Their early check-in charge is on their reservation email in tiny print close to the bottom of a three page document, much too easy to miss. We hope they enjoy their extra $10 because making customers angry the minute they walk in your door is not good for business. We will definitely never come back. - all4pets

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

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

Sites are good size with trees in between the sites. We even had rabbits showing up. Bathrooms are clean the indoor pool is great for rainy days, they even have a small arcade. The host are very nice and helpful and the onsite store has everything you need. The campground is close to most of the attractions in the White Mountains. I will be staying again since this is best campground we have been to in the White Mountains. - nh kayak

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

This campground is mostly seasonal campers. The staff is nice and welcoming. This campground is in need of some TLC and updating. The showers are fiberglass and walled with painted OSB as are the restrooms. They were clean but dated. There are no lights in the laundry room. The site was good having trees/foliage etc. separating the sites. Some tree trimming would be in order. The WiFi was spotty at best Sometimes we got it, other times not. Seems to be a bandwidth problem). Forget TV reception, one station at best. We also paid an additional $10.00 per day for 2 additional adults. State taxes are also high. Still, a pleasant experience. - DXRFLYER

Super clean bathrooms, good showers but you do have to pay. Many seasonals but very nice owners and welcoming to transients. Very shady, well kept sites, though could use gravel or mulch. Dirt can be a problem in wet weather, especially with dogs. Note - they take cash or checks only. - Gizzym

Clean but tight campground. Bathrooms and showers clean but there was a seasonal tent resident who treated the bathroom as her own, ie: coffee maker, toiletries, clothes hanging to dry. Our GPS gave us the wrong guidance and we called numerous times during the day for directions but there was no answer. The owner told us she was probably out cleaning bathrooms. - Bryce or bust
