We have been to the Saco rivercamping area numerous times. It's nice to see the new owners improving things. The first thing I noticed is that the check in was alot smoother this year vs the previous year. We start to setup and an older lady comes by our site and introduces herself. She stated that she new that we... More

If you love "glamping", then this is the place to be. Conveniently located in the heart of outlet shopping, this camp site offers activities for kids, playgrounds, multiple bathrooms/laundry and a generally safe area. The rentable campers are clean and homey. It is also very close to all that North Conway has to offer. We will come back asap!

We stayed here on Labor Day weekend and had a fun time--lots of activities for the kids (dunk tank, llamas, giant shopping cart for the kids to ride around in). The staff are very attentive and friendly as well. Our one complaint would be that the site we stayed at (one of the primitive sites for tent camping) was covered... More

Friendly staff can not do enough for you . Bath house and rest rooms spotless. No litter to be found in the whole park. I certainly rate this campground a full 10! Family friendly, lots of fun for the kids.

The facilities were clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the riverside sites fantastic. The Saco river was low, which made for slow but super-relaxing tubing. It is amazing that although all the outlets and activities that N Conway has to offer are just a stone's throw away, the campground felt secluded and back-to-nature. We were two couples with one...

We had never been to the White Mountains camping before, so after a lot of research, chose this campground for our week long stay. We had site 13 (W/E) on the river. Sites were definitely narrow in this area, and very close to your neighbor. If you like them, great. If not, this could be a bummer. This particular site... More

This was our third stay here with our kids. We love the location of the campground and this year we had a good sized riverfront site. The sites near the beach are definitely noisy, but I guess that is to be expected. Great tubing right in front of the campground. bathroom and showers definitely could have been kept cleaner -...
