My boyfriend and I decided to spend 5 days and 4 nights camping in the White Mountains, to get away from the city, our cell phones, and the sheer density of people in Boston. We wanted to relax and enjoy the silence, the stars, and the natural beauty of the mountains. We drove through Covered Bridge Campground, which was rustic and beautiful, and settled down in a site. Lo and behold, two hours, two tents, and two coolers later, we realized it had been reserved for the weekend (this was a Thursday; we were staying until Sunday).
So, what to do? Well, we flagged down a campground host in a pick-up to ask for advice and help. His name was Mike-- and we were SO glad we found him.
Not only did Mike show us the first-come-first-serve sites, he also offered to move our two tents on his pickup. He drove by later to check on us and deliver firewood, telling us that his was the best in the land, hardwood and kiln dried. He was right on ALL counts. The site was perfect, the wood burned slowly, and Mike was incredibly warm and hospitable on every occassion. It is clear he takes a lot of pride in his campground and loves his job (and his BIG dog!).
We truly enjoyed our stay at Covered Bridge, have returned once already this summer, and will be back again this coming Saturday. If you stay at Covered Bridge, SAY HI TO MIKE! You won't regret it-- he is a wonderful host and great guy.
Also, go swimming at Lower Falls.
