Your hosts provide itineraries to point the way around the scenic rural towns and spectacular mountain views. Sitting on the shores of the Ammonoosuc River you can step from your site, right into the river to try your hand at catching a rainbow trout. Hikers can head for Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch, Pinkham Notch, or Kinsman Notch for some world class hiking in the 800,000 acre White Mountain National Forest. Seek wilderness adventure and glorious scenery driving the Kancamangus Highway through the Pemigewasset Wilderness where pure family fun is around every corner.
The Old Man of the Mountain has collapsed, but fishing in Echo Lake, Profile Lake or riding the aerial tramway 4,180 feet up Cannon Mountain are unbeatable. Mount Washington's cog railway, 25 miles away, chugs up the 6,288-foot summit for some of the grandest scenery in the country. Take the auto road or save the white-knuckle driving for the tour van.
Shop in historic downtown Littleton or at Conway's outlet stores. Enjoy your choice of fine dining to casual in the many restaurants with traditional New England fare to continental cuisine; you'll always enjoy "the taste of the mountains". Unwind at the end of the day at your site, enjoy the heated pool, an evening campfire, or an evening walk making new friends with other campers. Rates: $40-$70 cabins $60-$150.
