This was our first time going here and first out-of-state camping trip! This campground location is great, right off the the main road. You are set back in the woods right beside the saco river. The main camp roads are paved and there are speed bumps. The campsites are very spacious letting you have space for friends and family! Max... More

We camped here Memorial Day weekend and had a blast! It was the first time out with our 3 year old, so we wanted to make sure we were staying somewhere family-friendly, and Saco River Camping Area fit the bill. Lots of RVs and the sites looked nice. It was fun walking/driving by them to see how people had things... More

Hi There Katgirl985, Thanks so much for your detailed review. We're thrilled you had a blast and found our staff friendly and the campground well appointed. We all work hard to provide our guests with a terrific family camping experience. We did notice you found the wood to be expensive. However, the $3 wood you spoke of is not kiln-dried.... More

My wife and I stayed at SRCA for a week in May 2016. If you're looking for a campground in the Mount Washington Valley, SRCA would be hard to beat. The location is easy to access and very convenient to great hikes, shops, restaurants and attractions. The facilities are well maintained and they have lots of activities for families and... More

First time here and was surprised that they charge $4 per dog per day. We have 2 Cavalier King Charles and in our 6 years of rving have never had to pay extra for pets. The campground is very nice with many amenities.

Hi There Tess Marie, Thanks so much for great feedback. We're thrilled you found the campground so nice. We're are sorry you were not anticipating a pet fee, but the majority of campgrounds in NH which allow pets do charge a fee. In the future, you might find a website such as bringfido.com will help you find pet friendly properties... 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!
