35 Parks near Northwood, New Hampshire

We stopped here primarily because it was a Passport park. New owners, very friendly. Chatted with them for about 15 minutes. As new owners they tried every site that was available to check them out for livability. Wifi was available but limited to around the office, even with a booster I couldn't get wifi and we were across the small lake from the office. Too many trees for satellite.
When pulling away from the office you need to negotiate between 2 buildings, a little tight but doable. - Wandering

This is a small park arranged around a small spring fed pond. The pond is stocked with trout and a fishing license isn't required. There also is a sand beach area and a nice adult area with seating and a fireplace adjacent to the pond. New owners had taken possession the week before we were here. everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. We were guided to our site and they helped us get settled in. Few sites have sewers. Good water and power (50 amp) at our site. The campsite had a picnic table and fire ring and was reasonably level. Not much chance of getting satellite TV because of the trees but there is a good selection of over the air TV. They have free WiFi which works well. Verizon service is 2 bar 4G. The maneuvering room is a little tight. We were only here for a day but easily could see returning to spend a week or two. - BobWW

another pleasant stay at Saddleback. Hosts could not have been nicer, site was great and the campground was very quiet mid week. This is our "go to" quick get-away from Manchester for a little R&R, never disappoints. - pugdad

Basic park. I was in site 1 right next to the office and I could see very little of the rest of the park as sites are interspersed among the trees. There were few trees in the area where I was parked and the afternoon sun in August was harsh. Avoid this spot--particularly because they charge three dollars extra a day for use of air conditioner. Water electric and sewer were provided and they were easy to access. My Verizon, if I recall correctly worked OK. Not a place, particularly in the area where I was parked, that I would want to spend any amount of time but good for a stop over. The spots further into the wooded area may have been nicer. The owner of the park is quite gracious and helpful. - nanzhere

This was an overnight stay for us as. We found the owner expecting us when we arrived (we had a reservation) and friendly. The sight was large and easy to back into. We would stay here again if in the area. - 1coloradan

We stayed here on Coast to Coast. Very remote, quiet campground. Our space was huge. Pretty much had our section (right behind the office) to ourselves all week. Seasonals came on the weekend. I didn't look at the restrooms, but my husband said they were really bad. And if he thinks they were bad, I would have thought they were horrendous. But again, I didn't look at them. Make sure you bring lots of food & supplies with you because the nearest full grocery store is almost to Concord (30+ miles west). Not a whole lot to do in the area unless you are there for Nascar races. We weren't, but did do a lot of driving around on beautiful back roads. Beautiful country. Would definitely stay there again. - lebamster

Nice lake with some great spots around the lake. Very quiet, nice owners. Some of the seasonal units are pretty run down but the people make up for it. Campground also has a group of very old and really cool cottages on the lake. They look fun. We had a good time. - J Gravely

This campground is great! It is a old New England farm on a lake. The fishing is great. The site we stay on (4 years in a row) is right on the water. The door of our camper is thirty feet from the lake shore. The owners will bend over backwards to make your stay a good one. - bendjosph

This facility normally requests a 3 day stay, as they say "to keep out partiers and riff raff" We were tired and they made an exception for us, as we were "an older couple!" What a beautiful park. Yes the roads were a little rough but you expect that in a heavily wooded area with old trees! They offer nice amenities including boat and paddleboard rentals. They have laundry facilities, propane and a store on site. Showers and restrooms wonderful. They also rent cabins. It was a little spendy, but would make a great facility for a family reunion. Their checkout time is 1:00. They have two beaches on lake. So much to do here, no need to leave park! - DigMyPast

I really liked this campground. It would have been a 9 or a 10 had it not been for the condition of their roads and the fact they had us in a site that was a little difficult to get into, evidenced by the fact that we ended up ripping our awning on a tree. After we had finally gotten into our site, the stay there was really nice. The owners were very nice and helpful (especially in helping us get out of our bind) and as we were leaving they wished us well and hoped we would return next year. The lake was beautiful and very clean. There were many seasonal campers but the overall vibe of the campground was "family". Quiet hours were indeed quiet, all hookups worked great, including the free Wi-Fi. Cable is available and had a good amount of channels. Overall, it was a nice weekend away and we enjoyed our stay here. - DeannaS

Great park, friendly staff. Sites are large and easy to access. Good TV. If it had internet then I would have rated it a 10. - Roaming from CA

The new name for this facility is the Strafford KOA. Since they just made the change they honored our Good Sam discount.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The overall campground is well maintained and the sites are spacious. Would definitely visit this campground again. - leen

This is a very clean and very friendly park. The office/store staff are very nice as are the owners. The hookups at each site are very up to date and work very good. The campground is maintained very nice and everything looked great. We try to get here every year as we love it and fine it very peaceful. The pool complex is very nice and many are able to enjoy it. I was a holiday weekend but the noise was not bad at all, maybe a camper or two but no issues. Seasonal camps are neat and although there are golf carts, most all drive very slow and responsible. - Happy Camper X2

I want to update the older comments by saying the power was a steady 118v, water pressure 50lbs, bathrooms clean and orderly. The park is an older park but roads and sites were o.k. for my 39' Montana. This is owner managed and it shows. Staff more than helpful. Great place for kids, right next to the river. - Duramax1217

Everyone we met here was very friendly and helpful. The campground is older with shady sites. Many seasonals. The hookups are not in normal locations. I didn't use the water so I can't comment on the lack of pressure. The electrical issues mentioned in another review must've been taken care of because the voltage was the highest I have ever seen. Not sure about the amperage as I have no way to measure it. Leaving was a challenge with a 38 ft motorhome. I wasn't sure if I was going to get around the loop at the end or have to back up and find a different exit. After a couple of tries I did get out OK. Convenient to Camping World, Sam's Club, Super Walmart and Concord. Many antique shops heading east on 202. - mrracechaser

This is just a so-so campground. We stayed here for two months for medical reasons (doctors, surgery, etc.), and felt lucky to get a spot here on short notice. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating. Most of the sites are taken by seasonal customers. They have some activities. The location is good for race fans going to NH International Speedway in Loudon. Camping World is nearby. The electrical voltage and water pressure are both atrocious! Had to use the water tank and pump just to get enough flow for bathing and dish washing. We had a digital voltmeter plugged in, and on hot weekends during peak A/C loads, the voltage dipped down to 95, and we had to switch the fridge to propane just to keep the A/C running. Had to do much juggling to run things like the toaster and microwave. Would probably look elsewhere if we visit New Hampshire again. - cherpa

No problem with reservations although original assigned site was not available due to a late checkout of the previous camper. Was told the assigned site was better than the original. Not much to look at, as it backed up to a backwater area off of a small pond, view was mostly dead limbs and black muck, but at least there weren't any bugs. There are other sites that were occupied when we arrived that would have been better. Neighbor voluntarily re-staked his chained dog to the opposite side of his site after we arrived. Owner was helpful and pleasant. Gate card required a $10 deposit. Wi-Fi didn't work in our location and I didn't try the TV. We were here for 4 nights as we were visiting family in the area. We only spent the nights here.
It seemed to be a party spot over the holiday weekend for locals and the many permanent residents. Children seem to have a great time riding bikes and fishing in the small pond. There were some dead limbs in the trees over our site and was glad we didn't have a significant wind storm while we were here.
There are not many better choices in the area. We were here 20 years ago and it is not how I remembered it then. - Trailbuddy

We stayed at Circle 9 for 12 days while waiting for Camping World to process some warranty work on our RV. We chose Circle 9 based on the five minute drive to Camping World and past reviews. The good: Site 127 is a pull through and we had no issues getting setup. We were guided to our spot by Sonny, the owner, and he made sure we had everything we needed. Water and electric were fine, wifi was upgraded during our stay and worked well, except when the park was full during NASCAR race weekend, then it was intermittent.
The bad: The pull through sites are not the widest and alternate directions so our door faced our neighbors. This also meant sharing a picnic table and fire ring. This would be ok if camping with friends, but could pose a challenge with strangers. Our first weekend there a majority of the seasonal campers were out in force and the beer was flowing. A group of them setup at the horseshoe pits, which are near the temporary sites, and were getting rowdy, although the owner did send them back to their sites when he felt they were getting carried away. Quite a few seasonals don't leash their dogs and others who did had such long leads that dogs could still get near the roads which made walking our dogs challenging. The temporary sites are in an open field with no shade from the sun at any time of day. If the temperatures are moderate then its ok, otherwise expect your A/C to work overtime.
The pool was open but we did not use it.
We did hear the new owner has been in place for a year now and he does keep order when needed and seems to be keeping many in line. We need to be back in the area for more RV work so we most likely will return to Circle 9 after comparing it to other campgrounds in the area. - pfogleboch

This has to be the worst campground I ever stayed in. I came to this location because it was close to NASCAR. It was 90 degrees and the pool wasn’t open. Looks like it has been inoperable for some time…wish they would have told us. The limited sites that they have are very small with one utility pool per 2 sites. Every other RV parks in opposite direction…meaning my door was facing my neighbors door. I think my awning and my neighbors were only a few feet apart. The seasonal campers weren’t just seasoning it appears they live there with make shift enclosures over very old travel trailer. Not a very desirable clientele. You had to pay for WIFI, bathrooms were dated and at this cost I would have expected a much nicer campground. This is a quick overnight stay location that shouldn’t cost more that $25-$30 dollars. - E597283

We opened the park (literally, we watched the ranger open he chain gate). For that reason there were things that were not quite ready. Cleanup was still happening, not all sites were open. Not a big deal. The nice part was having the whole park to ourselves. One other camper came in just as it got dark. The bathrooms were clean. The showers were not very good. The shower heads were 90% clogged up and sprayed everywhere other than where you needed them to spray. The trails & views were great, and it was very quiet. I plan on coming back during the middle of the Summer to see how it is during the busy part of the season. There is only one bathhouse open for the 2014 season, so it might get a little dicey for those who visit during the busy times. We plan on staying here again next year on opening weekend. - BigNuge

The park is not really set-up for RV's, even small ones; the road inside the camping area is very narrow in spots because of trees. The road to the campground has a small bridge with a weight limit of only 2 tons. Apparently the 2 ton limit was recently imposed. Our rig is 5 tons, we had to back up when we encountered the bridge. Couldn't locate a park employee anywhere but did run across a state policeman who said he didn't know about the limit but that log trucks went across the bridge all the time. The park map seemed to indicate that there was a back way into the campground; unfortunately the road was blocked right before entering the campground -- more backing up. After talking with the policeman again, we went over the bridge into the campground where the manager said he didn't really know about the weight limit (the signs had gone up only a couple of weeks earlier) but that big trucks from the lumber companies, the trash trucks, and heavy vehicles used the road all the time. The bathrooms were OK but the showers were not clean - one stall had a pile of cigarette butts and an old beer can on the floor. There was a $15 charge for using the dump station. We were not impressed with this campground - liz&denis

Site was clean. Power was 121v. at 30amps. WiFi was iffy and being discontinued. WiFi by cell phone was good. Cable TV was good. Water pressure was good. Got level by adding 1-1/2 inches on the left side. Has a fishing pond. What's so bad about this place for an overnight? One caution: probably better for trailers than motorhomes because of the sloping sites. - BbTrombone

We should have left this park as soon as we entered. This campground has potential to be nice, but no one is making any effort. We didn't check out the bathrooms because the entrance to them was so dirty and uninviting we didn't want to go any further. - CKB

It is 2009, see the other reviews, nothing has changed. AAA rated it high, what was in their water? The people were nice although they could use some dental care - burt

A seasonal campground with daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. Dirt roads are a little rough in spots so go slow. Some gravel sites, most are fairly level, 50 amp for larger rigs. The family is in the process of revamping the entire camp so it is in transition but still a great place for kids to ride bikes and swim/kayak/tube along the river. The sites along the river only fit tents, the upper section could fit some bigger rigs and a few on the lower area could fit up to a 45 foot. They have sewer tanks that they pump out and a dump site by the entrance. It is a family run campground, friendly and vintage but clean. They have horse shoe pits, tether ball, a small rec center with a pool table, grocery stores and restaurants are a short drive. We stayed for over a month and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. - PERRELLAS
