More than Expected. Compares well with Franconia.

Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, and the drive North along the Presidential Range didn't match up to the scenery through Crawford State Park. Must do if in the area.

Very nice drive. Many places to stop and enjoy the park and take pictures. Hoped to see a moose, but didn't. It was raining pretty heavily when we came through, so didn't stray far from the car. We'll be back in the future to enjoy it more.

I saw a black bear for the first time in years! It was awesome! Beautiful park with lots to do, but the bear was totally the highlight for me.

We drove around and also hiked at Arethusa Falls. We stopped in the Willey House Gift Shop what a cute place to buy souvenirs or a bite to eat BUT the best reason to stop is real flush toilets in a clean bathroom with running water!! The picnic area across the street is a beautiful place too. There are ducks... More

If you want accessible nature, then try this place. "Remote campgrounds without electric or water but showers, water and electric are centralized on site. Take the kids, go for a hike, do a bit of fishing. The staff is VERY attentive and makes sure you are taken care off and can offer 100's of tips for hiking and fishing as... More

We really enjoyed this state park. We did a few hikes and the hike to Ripley Falls was the biggest bang for our buck. It's a relatively short and easy hike but the entire length of it is quite beautiful and the falls at the end are MUCH more impressive than photos let on. We would visit these falls regularly...

Excellent view of the whole valley. One of the best views I have had in hiking. The entire Crawford Notch opens up in front of you when you reach the summit.

This highway is another delightful drive through the White Mountains and we found it better than the Kancamagus Highway. It was a glorious day, which showed off the scenery to perfection. Stopping points were many, views a plenty plus we saw more wildlife.

a bit steep, but there are many trails for beginners as well. There were a lot of people out because there was a charity marathon. It was great fun.
