White Mountain National Forest


The Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountain National Forest (Lisa Martineau/Union Leader)

The White Mountain National Forest features 23 campgrounds, ranging in size from seven to 176 sites.

To camp in the forest, most sites are on a first-come, first-served basis, but some do accept reservations on a limited basis.

Some areas provide running water and flush toilets, while others are more primitive.

Some campsites can accommodate RVs, although none offer hook ups, dump stations, or telephones.
