White Mountains

Any suggestions for state parks or such in the White Mountains or Vermont for an RV stay?

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,
I know the state parks in Vermont are small, and difficult for a large RV to get into, I am not familiar them in NH. I would reccomend Moose Hillock in Warren, NH. I am in Tamarack campground which has some wooded sites, it's not bad. Danforth Bay is also nice, and any of these you can take a short drive and see the white mountains!

We visited the area a few years ago and stayed @ Echo Lake SP at the base of "the face of the old man in the mountain that fell off." The campground was only 9 sites on the edge of a parking lot but full hookups and an honor pay. Not much of a CG but it was a great place to see the sights from. There are 2 Echo Lake state parks and one may not have camping so you may have to search for the right one.

The highlight of the trip was the ride to the top of Mt. Washington on the Cog Railroad.

Not all Vermont State campgrounds are small. We have camped in quite a few with our 33' fifth wheel. However they do not have any hookups. You just need to call and ask if you can fit. We have stayed at DAR, Lake St. Catherine and Grand Isle. I know Button Bay will fit you as well.

Just outside Bennington,VT, in Pownall, is a small campground that is absolutely beautiful with wonderful owners and I believe a Passport campground. You might wnat to check it out. It is not a state campground, but has a small lake to fish and very quiet.

I just checked and it is Pine Hollow; it is a good sam park and not passport, but is reasonable. We liked it so much we stayed there again on our trip back from Nova Scotia. Hope this helps.
