Activities and Amenities
The campground lies amidst a beautiful thick forest of white pine and northern hardwoods that provide plenty of shade. The 30-acre Campton Pond and Mad River are close by.
The White Mountains are home to many species of northern wildlife, including moose, white-tailed deer and black bear. Almost 200 species of birds, including the rare Bicknell's Thrush, live in the forest.
The White Mountains are a favorite among hikers. Many miles of hiking and mountain biking trails are within a short drive of the campground. Within the facility, nature programs are available on Saturday nights in July and August.
Anglers can cast a line for brook trout, pickerel, brown bullhead and yellow perch in the pond and river. No power boats are permitted on the pond.
This is a large facility with many types of campsites that accommodate a variety of camping preferences. Despite its size, campsites are spaced well-apart. Restrooms, drinking water and hot showers (coin-operated) are provided.
