  • This place was amazing. And the privately owned small campground right before you entered was spectacular. The owners were welcoming and friendly, they had clean nice bathrooms, and beautiful campsites. I will definitely be returning ASAP!
  • This is the white mountains of Maine. Far less travelled and in my opinion more beautiful.
