After reading very positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to book reservations at the Glen Ellis Campground. We are fairly new to RV'ing but not to camping and this campground fit the bill for whatever type of camping you would want to enjoy. From full hook-ups, to 'wilderness' tent sites on the Saco River, there's something for everyone.
We were there just after Memorial Day week-end and the campground wasn't even half full. The section we were in was a 'pull thru' and even though the RV's went in 'back to back', there was enough room for your own space. The site was clean and the central grounds very well maintained and lawn manicured.
Access to both the Ellis and Saco Rivers was close by and we could see why the riverside tent sites would be so popular. There are many (RV) seasonal sites taken (May-Oct) but with over 200 sites, there's plenty left to enjoy.
The bathrooms were very clean and the amenities included a gorgeous looking swimming pool (we opted for the rivers to cool off in), tennis courts, volleyball court, baseball diamond, kids' playground, arcade barn and (public) laundry facilities. The land is level so bring your bicycles - the main 'green' is a nice, safe area to fly kites and for kids to play in. Tubing and fly fishing as well as the views are definitely a must to check out.
Downside is there's no cable and right now Wi-fi is poor to non-existent if that's what you're looking for. The staff is cordial, cheerul and helpful. The 'country store' stocks most of what you'd need (if you run out) without leaving the property. But if you need to venture out, North Conway is minutes away along with the Crawford and Pinkham Notches very close by.
We were very impressed and have already booked for next year. A definite 'gem in Glen'!
