Nice stay, sites vary in size and quality quite a bit, with some awesome sites and some really bad ones (like site 33). River sites are a bit over-hyped and are on a high slope. The entire campground was sandy & dusty though, with some sites completely dusty/dirt, with limited to no grass, which was a downer. Sites not well manicured. Clean restrooms, but not enough of them (only 2) for such a large campground, and with only two showers per restroom, waiting was an issue. .25 cents per 5 minutes at the showers, so bring plenty of quarters with you. Plenty for the kids to do, but the campground charges for some of it, like laser tag ($8), or the 3 wheeled bicycles ($6 for 30 min). Campground is in a great location for river access and shopping/restaurants. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park and staff. They had nice showers that were separate for privacy. You had to pay .25 cents for 5 minutes in the shower, but you could adjust the water. They were very nice and hot water. Toilets were narrow and small, but nice. Park was very well maintained. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Very nice that if you are traveling with another unit, the pull through sites are so that you are facing each other. Good cable, slow and sketchy Wi-Fi, mostly sand in pull throughs. Back in sites have more grass. Nice access to Saco River and very convenient to downtown and all the mountain sights and trails. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good campground close to Traffic on Rt. 16 is heavy but the campground is off the road and backs up to the river. We had a site with very little grass and it was raining. Our site was muddy and water stood right where we stepped out of the rig. Not the best of places to be in the rain. Restrooms were in need of update but were clean. Understand you have to pay extra for the showers ??? Although we didn't need to use their showers I consider this a big negative. We would not stay here again.

A very nice park - lots of playground area, sand volleyball, basketball court, baseball fields. The river is accessible for paddling. Some pull through sites are facing each other if you are camping with another unit. My only negative is our site was all sand, no grass for the dogs. The gate is locked from 11 pm-7 am so don't plan on being out late. Extremely friendly staff. We will return. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

A good base for exploring the area. Close to the Kancamagus Highway (hikes/waterfalls) and about an hour to the Cog Railway at Mt. Washington. Lots of shopping in area, along with lots of traffic on Rt. 16: take back roads. Campground is on the banks of the Saco River. We had a riverfront site which was very muddy when it rained. Recommend sites in 2nd or 3rd row back from river and ask for grassy surface. All sites looked level. Dated but clean bathhouse. $$ for showers, but they are strong and hot. Wi-Fi worked well. Efficient staff. Pool small, but looked nice: we didn’t use it. Tube and kayak rental available for river floats. We would camp here again if in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at Saco River. The campground could use a little spiffing up, but overall the sites are large, relatively level, and nicely maintained. The sites were dirt, not even gravel and it poured twice while we were there so the motorhome and tires were covered with mud splatters. The sites could have a little landscaping, but they were clean. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The river was great and the kayak rentals were $20/pp for 2-6 hours, so not too bad. The campground is located within North Conway where there are some great little shops, an outlet mall, easy access to Mt. Washington (crazy!) and a wonderful old-time railroad you can ride on. We recommend this site for anyone looking for a laid-back relaxing, outdoor place.. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Great park. We stayed in the poolside area and it is a bit tight for big rigs. Lots aren't very long so a lot of people park their tow vehicle along side the road and that makes it almost impossible to maneuver into your space. Lots to do in the area and you are right in the middle of shopping and restaurants. We had an awesome time in the White Mountain National Forest. Would definitely stay again.

Right on the river! Lots of fun! A lot of families and children. Not a place for older people. Our family enjoyed it very much! We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Tent.

Check in was done by a young lady who couldn't have cared less. Shower rooms full of mosquitoes but pretty clean. We had a level pull in site on grass. Overall feel of campground and people staying was not welcoming. I would not stay at this campground again. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Motorhome.

The only park we've been to that allows parallel parking on the river, awning side facing the water. The view and environment were excellent. Cable TV was ok, unable to get the satellite to work due to trees. Web access was fine. Lots to do in this area with the outlets very close. Excellent hiking trails nearby. We stayed in site #56.

This is a great place to stay if you are traveling/camping with children. Playground is in the center of the site area. Restrooms and laundry facilities clean and modern. For the rate we paid, we had 30 amp service with no problems at all. You can walk to the outlet malls from the campground. Many great places to eat and shop. A great place for breakfast is Peaches Restaurant, and if you haven't eaten at a Flatbreads, that is quite the pizza place! Many many wonderful hiking and biking opportunities in this area around Mt. Washington. We recommend the Mt. Washington auto road trip! We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Motorhome.

We have a 38 foot camper and the site we had was a back in, but at an angle. It was kind of tough to get into, but it was the last site available. They have nicer pull throughs and back ins. Paved roads, not sites though. Office and pool a little ways from sites, nice river. Nice park overall. Cable TV had like 60 channels. Would return if in the area.

What a lovely campground. We had two units and had pull through sites that had us with our doors opposite each other and tons of space in between. Perfect for campers traveling together. The site was relatively level, grassy and had shade trees. We were just steps from river's edge. Camp office personnel were very friendly and helpful. The campground was walking distance to everything in town and very close to the Presidential Range and all the activities it provides. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this campground.

We stayed at this campground during the off-season. We arrived late for check-in, however, the owner was helpful in allowing us into the camp office to register even though the office was closed. The park appeared to be clean. The bathroom / shower house we used was dated a bit, but they were clean. There is a fee for showers. (I'm not a big fan of these as it usually takes a while for them to warm up and to figure out temperature-wise before getting in, hence, you 25 cents is gone fairly quickly) The main reason why we stayed here was to be very close to the Outlet malls in North Conway - which is directly across the street from the park and Storyland (20 minute drive away in Glen, NH). We would come back. We camped at Saco River Camping Area in a Tent Trailer.
