This is a campground not only for the sports minded but families with little ones. Need relaxing time? The campground to go to. Friendly and super clean and quiet. Close enough to walk for shopping and such a beautiful town in New Hampshire.

Our family continues to recommend this campground and the friendly staff and excellent facilities to all we meet. See you next summer🇨🇦.

Clean, friendly, full-hook up sites, central to all the area has to offer from hiking, mountain biking, outlet shopping and river sports.! The star of this place is the wonderful Saco River! Use their rental service or shuttle your own gear up river for a float or paddle downstream.

We have stayed at several campgrounds in the Saco River area and this was by far the best yet! The staff was always friendly and helpful......loved the fact that they delivered the wood to the sites and also delivered an item we lost after we called the office! The prices for the sites, laundry, showers and especially the store were... More

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

Thank you for the terrific feedback and we're very happy you had wonderful time. As for the wood, please know our wood is the among the least expensive in the area for kiln-dried hardwood. Side of the road wood may be less expensive, but can contain bugs and is typically made up of moist softwoods which burn faster and with... 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.

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.
