I have been going to Crawford Notch Campground for almost 20 years. It is by far one of my favorites places I have ever been. Located right in the middle of The Notch in NH. One of the nice perks of camping here is (because you are in the notch) there is no cell phone reception at all. It's a nice break from civilization. There are many options for your stay here, you can choose to be on the highway side of the campground, perfect for those of you taking day trips, or you could choose to camp out on the other side of the campground on the Saco river or in the woods. The campsites are spread out allowing you plenty of privacy. There is a bath house which is always clean and a fully stocked general store (If you forgot it, they've got it).
I have been through three owners in my stays here. The newest is the best. He really has change the campground for the better. After the hurricane last year the river literally changed. A once in a lifetime event I am sure. So in the off season the owner changed it back. An amazing site to see. Now it's like beachfront property in the mountains. It is true that there are no playgrounds or arcades(Not something I would like to see) but there are plenty of trails and places to swim and if you really must find something like an arcade there are plenty of places within 10-15 minutes away you can drive to.
So if you are heading to this area and want to camp somewhere, camp here. It just too beautiful to pass up.
