Big Rock Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The moment you pull into Big Rock Campground, you’ll see the unique geological feature for which the campground was named: a huge rock. Besides being a namesake and a curiosity, this massive chunk of granite (a phrase that proved far too cumbersome for a campground name) gives climbers a good spot for a little spontaneous bouldering. It’s a nice way to warm up for or cool down from a day spent climbing the massive walls of Cathedral Ledge in nearby North Conway.
Big Rock is actually quite small, but that makes it an excellent place to set up camp. It has only 28 sites, many of which have a decent amount of space and some privacy. If you’ve come camping with a group or need several sites, try to secure something in the range of sites 23 through 28. There’s a small central parking area, so you’ll have to haul in your gear, but not too far. These sites sit atop the small hill around which the campground is situated, isolating them from the rest of the campground, if not from each other. A restroom is right down the access road.
Other prime tent spots within Big Rock are sites 7, 8, 9, 12, and 13 through 18. All are on the same loop (the main loop of the campground)."
