I drove to the Bethlehem area and through Franconia Notch and also up to the Bretton Woods area over a couple different days. As any national forest I have had the pleasure of visiting, this one has some great views and is very peaceful and tranquil. A good way to restore the soul a bit. I wish I had been... More

This is the worst camp ground I have ever been to.If you talk after 10pm you will be kicked out of the grounds. We received a $360.00 dollar ticket at 7 pm for sitting around a fire talking and laughing to loud. Very unprofessional ownership.my advice to anyone that wants to enjoy themselves camping drive right past the covered bridge... More

I would recommend this drive to anyone on a clear day. It took us about 6 hours to do the drive. We stopped at almost every lookouts and falls. This is a great day trip for families and well worth the drive.

We were on the last day of a two week road trip, and while we'd planned on the drive up Mt. Washington, it was going to take time to get there and would have resulted in more time in the car than we wanted. We stopped in the visitor's center at the start of the highway and got a ton... More

There a quite a few stopovers to get out of the car and explore this unique rugged terrain. My kids and I loved Rocky Gorge scenic area and Sabday Falls . Great photo opportunities at these two places. You can get in the ice cold water on a hot day and be instantly refreshed.

A drive along Route 112 ( Kancamagus Highway) through the center of White Mountain National Forest is not to be missed. There are scenic overlooks for lovely views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. There are parking areas for hiking trails from less than a mile to several miles. Some of the trails lead to waterfalls. Not to be missed... More

Absolutely spectacular views everywhere you look. I loved every moment of being in this national Forest. I camped at Dolly Copp campground – and that was good too except for the fact that they don't have showers. Those are to be had 5 miles south at the visitor center. Plenty of stopping points, lots of amazing hiking – I hiked... More

With bitter cold temps, we opted to go for a drive through the National Forest, up to Bretton Woods. Beautiful!

Plenty of activities in this area from hiking to seasonal sports like skiing. Gorgeous scenery and the lack of cell phone service in most of the area make it quite relaxing. There are some amazing restaurants in the area as well. The downside is the obvious economic issues (many derelict businesses and homes) and a short supply of quality hotels.... More
