Dry River Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Don’t get confused as you drive up through Crawford Notch State Park. The state-park campground is called Dry River Campground. There’s also a Crawford Notch Campground, but that’s a private campground across US 302. Both are excellent camping spots near some fantastic hiking and climbing routes.

Dry River is one of those campgrounds where there’s not a bad site in the place. It’s a small campground set within a moderately dense forest of mixed deciduous trees: maple, birch, and ash. All the campsites are very clean and spacious. The setting in Crawford Notch doesn’t hurt one bit either. From your campsite, you’re minutes from dramatically beautiful and challenging trails, world-class rock-climbing at Frankenstein Cliffs, and towering waterfalls. You won’t run out of things to do or places to explore when staying here."

This is a very nice state run campground. It has showers, washer and dryer and good bathrooms. The sites are well spaced and fairly private. Route 302 can be a bit loud during the day, but it really quiets down nicely at night. I would recommend taking a walk to the front of the campground on a clear night - the view of the stars is spectacular.
