This is a great place but is hilly for sure. Great pool and snack bar and the store was good as well. Staff was great and friendly. In the past security had been a little over the top but were great this time. The place really quiets down at 10 which is good. Our site which was not too level but most seemed to be level do we wrote a few numbers down as we walked around. WiFi and cell service available down front but not at the sites. Ice cream sundaes were great on Sat night. We will be back. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
There is a little store down the street or a full store 20 minutes away.
Very wooded campground and hilly, but no problem to drive thru. Sites are a good size with good space between each. No ATT cell service in area at all; wifi only available around pool area. Pool is a definite attraction. Family campground. Ice cream sundaes on Saturday night are awesome. Bears are a daily occurrence. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Very Very large campground. Bathrooms showed the amount of people using them. Showers are pay and tiny. Super large sites. great pool and playground. Wifi is limited to a small area by the pool so I don't consider this "Wifi" as I want it at my site. the biggest problem I have with this CG is the 118 coming into it is horrible. Very remote and out of the way. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Tent Trailer.
We found this campground to be an excellent fit for our family. The campground is clean, the sites are private, and the pool is fun and refreshing. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
While we've only visited about 5 campgrounds as we are new campers, this is our favorite. Why? It has large sites and large firepits! We've been to Moose Hillock twice; first in Oct, 2012 when the pool was shut down; second in June 2013 when we were all by ourselves in the back half of the campground. It was awesome having no one around us as you truly felt you were backwoods camping. The pool is a big draw to this place as it's has pirate ship with slides and is heated. The June 2013 trip saw a lot of rain the previous night really taking down the pool temps. This place is also very large so that kids can bike everywhere. Also, the rules on their site look strict with alcohol, but make sure you have your Red Solo Cups and you'll be fine. Don't walk around with beer cans in hand. We have not gone in peak July and August time frames as we've heard the place will be 100% capacity and the pool is quite full. So, this is our resident favorite that we will stick with in off peak season. They are opening up a NY/Lake George area location in Spring 2014, and we will definitely go try that one out as they told us they are building it the same with large sites and large firepits.

Ok so lets start with the negatives. Bathroom are out dated and are not cleaned as often as they should be. Fishing pond yielded zero fish. Did not see a big presence of staff doing maintenance and other type roles around campground. On the positive side: the pool was awesome. The pirate ship and slides was enjoyed by all ages. Campsites are large and spaced out nicely. Beautiful part of NH. Would go back! We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We just returned from our stay at Moose Hillock. We have been told that this campsite is amazing: but I have to say it wasn't amazing. The campground did have some great features, but it went dull after the first day. We have two boys: 8 and 4 years old. We chose this place for the fishing pond and pool. We were told that fishing was great and stocked. That is a key feature for my 8 year old but the pond was over fished and murky. The fishing was a flop. The pool was cool and fun. The slides are a nice added touch but with the little kids it was hard to keep them out of harms way from the older pre-teens and teens. They came flying down the slides before my small one could even get out of the way. The pool was clean and warm. The campground has a cafe which was nice, but bring your credit card for everything in the cafe and store is very expensive. Bathrooms were concrete floors and they were presentable. The office staff was great! Very friendly and helpful. The sites were spacious and roomy. Between the sites looked a bit unkempt but ok. Wi-Fi signal was weak but ok. We were supposed to stay for a week but left after 3 days. We got bored. I would suggest more activities, not just on Saturdays and Wednesdays. If we were to go back it would be just for a couple of days. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Motorhome.
We had 2 sites. One with 2 tents and one with our 35' fifth wheel and a tent. We could have easily all fit on one site! They are the largest sites we have ever found. The fireplace was amazing. They are all built into the site using existing rock ledges. The pool was just great. We were in it every day. We were camping with our 4 adult children, their significant others, and our 3 year old grandson. Everyone agreed that Moose Hillock was great. The only drawbacks we saw: There is a 30 minute or more drive to do anything over poorly maintained roads. There is NO cell service (between us we had 3 different carriers) and only one small area of the cafe that gets Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and showers smell kind of mildewy. This would be easily remedied by cleaning with bleach and putting in fans to move the air. But NONE of these things we deal breakers for us. We truly enjoyed our time there and will probably be back. We already have family members who are booked there because of the way we raved about it. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
. Overall we would give the campground an 8.5 rating. We would definitely plan on camping there again next year. The campsites were large, private and well maintained. We even had a few little chipmunks and red squirrels keeping us company all week. The natural rock fire pit was a nice touch. The bathrooms were clean. Showers were pay ($0.25) and the time was a little short. The pool was fantastic. The kids ages 16 to 4 all could not get enough of it. The two water slides were fun for all ages. Great mix of music played at the pool as well. Pool side cafe was a nice to have, when you wanted to take a break get an ice-cream, drink or grab lunch with out having to go back to your site. A little pricey but to be expected. Camp store was well stocked and had lots of souvenirs. There was a huge playground which my 4 year old thought was the best thing ever. Large play structures including a hip, train, slides etc, also well maintained. We never got to the fishing pond or any of the other available amenities such as the basketball court, volleyball, horseshoe pits, and biking and hiking trails. Kids just did not want to get out of the pool. Do wish their were more activities during the week. They did have an ice-cream social on Saturday and a sing-a-long with Bruce the Moose on Wed. They did have a religious undertone but did not in anyway push it on us. We were given a pamphlet and told about the church services. It is not a campground for those looking to party all night, definitely family oriented. We loved it and would recommend it. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Motorhome.
The reason that I didn't give this place a 10 is because it could use some more activities. They only had them on Wednesday & Saturday. The camp sites are huge and private with the largest natural fire pits I've ever seen. Our back rock was 6 feet high and I saw others that over 8 feet high! The had a great snack bar that was actually a small restaurant right at the swimming pool. The swimming pool was huge with a gigantic pirate ship that had water canons a small water slide a larger water slide. The have a very well stocked store with friendly employees. The kids spent hours and hours at the fishing pond. They also have excellent hiking trails with a natural swimming hole. Some of these trails go right into the White Mountain National Forest! We camped in a Hybrid Trailer and a large tent. Three adults and 4 kids 2 1/2 - 6 years of age and they kept us busy! This place is not the cheapest, but it was worth every penny. We can't wait to go again!!!! We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground with very large sites. Our site was wonderful, we could have fit a second camper on it. The pool is real nice as well, it is large and the pirate ship and slides are great fun. They had entertainment Sat night which was nice as well as an ice cream social. This was a real joy to be at but why only an 8 and not a 10? First off the total lack of cell service was a negative, granted they do not have control here but in todays world, cell service is important. The other is the rules, rules are great but they pick and choose which ones to enforce. We were written up for a dog issue (our fault) and a noise issue after 10 PM where we were quieter than the surrounding sites but we were the ones spoken to at 10:10 about noise. In the mean time, no one follows the speed limit here and they did not seem to do anything about it as the same cars kept traveling over 5 MPH including all of the gators the employees were driving. Anyway, great place to go, just watch the rules and don't step in front of the speeding cars. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This is the 2nd year in a row we have camped here. We love everything about it. Large sites, the waterpark is the best we have seen. Not a party campground.. great family activities. We gave it a 10 last year and a 9 this year. Only reason we did not give it another 10 was the girl that checked us in was a little rude. We were 20 minutes early. But the ride from home was 3 hours and 15 minutes. There was no traffic etc. so we made good time. She let us in.. no one had the site the night before. But scolded us for being early and warned us to leave on time. Started with a sour taste in our mouths. But the rest of the trip was fantastic!

I am 42 yrs old and have been camping since in the womb. I have camped from St. John Virgin isl. to the top of Canada. I would rate this campground in the top 5 I have ever camped at. Sites were very private, nicely wooded, flat for the most part and very large. The fire pit was amazing as were most that I saw as walking around. The pool is amazing, especially for kids, as they have a pirate ship with slides. The general store and snack bar had everything. The reason for a 9 instead of a ten, although the campground was quiet by 10pm, but one night when our new neighbors got to their site around 10 to set up, they were very loud; I think a campground should have no check ins after 9, and maybe a holding area for late arrivals. Also there should be no alcohol except for on your site. I can go either way with this, seeing both good and bad behavior, but I like to have a beer or 2 while at the pool with the kids for 3 or 4 hours. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Tent.
This is the second time we have stayed here. We weren't as pleased with the location of our site this time, as it was near the front where all the noise is. However, it was still a large site, which is the reason we came here again. The sites are VERY generous in size. There are plenty of activities, but I was a little disappointed they didn't do anything in the way of fireworks, and it did not appear there were any fireworks going on close by either. I love the fire pits, and the staff was very friendly. My husband and I were up quite late many nights with our campfire going and no one ever told us we had to put it out, which I really appreciated. And as usual, the pool is absolutely awesome. I will come back here again, but hopefully will be put in the back the next time. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We love this place and this Memorial Day weekend was no exception. They did appear to do some site and dirt work to prep. We had site 115 and found it to be fine, less the picnic table that when we moved it the corner was rotten and broke off (thus the 9). Pool was warm, clean and fun. Kids had fun fishing and playing on the play ground which clean in and good shape. Everyone was friendly there. No golf carts allowed which we love and the rules are fair. Cannot wait to book another long weekend. They are pricy but for what you get, we don't mind. We camped at Moose Hillock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
