Covered Bridge Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"What do big rock and covered bridge campgrounds have in common (besides the fact that they’re both on Kancamagus Highway)? As soon as you pull in to either, you’ll see the campground’s namesake. In the case of Covered Bridge Campground, it’s a classic New England covered bridge that spans the Swift River. The original bridge was built in the late 1800s by the townsfolk of Albany; it was rebuilt in the 1970s.
On either side of the road leading to the bridge, huge timbers span the road at a 7-foot, 9-inch height to ensure that “adventurous” RV or camper owners don’t try to drive through the bridge. Effective in preserving this historic covered bridge, the timbers also help keep the larger RVs out of Covered Bridge Campground. (You can get into the campground from the Dugway Road, 6 miles west of Conway... but don’t tell anyone in an RV!)"
