  • It's a wonderful place to camp. We camped here and the camp ground was clean and good. Large camping space for every campsite. Good bathroom facility with hot shower too. It was fall when we camped and the place was beautiful with colors.
  • Beautiful small park. Primarily frequent by campers. Great for photos
  • No moose. But pretty park. Nice place for family picnic.
  • Great camping ground, very rustic yet comfortable for family camping. Great walking trails and swimming hole. The camping bathrooms are clean. You can even buy day passes for a picnic and swim! Close to Mt. Washington and beautiful area all around!
  • A great campground for soloists or families alike. Shower facilities - bring quarters if you want hot water! Check out Glen Ellis Falls for a brief hike to a waterfall. Close to many trailheads for hikers, we did Jefferson the next day. Great sites in a field or in the woods. Call for reservations on the weekend - we got one of the last sites on a Saturday. Will be back.
