Clean, friendly, full-hook up sites, central to all the area has to offer from hiking, mountain biking, outlet shopping and river sports.! The star of this place is the wonderful Saco River! Use their rental service or shuttle your own gear up river for a float or paddle downstream.

The staff was always friendly and helpful......loved the fact that they delivered the wood to the sites and also delivered an item we lost after we called the office! The prices for the sites, laundry, showers and especially the store were...

This was our first time going here and first out-of-state camping trip! This campground location is great, right off the the main road. You are set back in the woods right beside the saco river. The main camp roads are paved and there are speed bumps. The campsites are very spacious letting you have space for friends and family! Max...

My wife and I stayed at SRCA for a week in May 2016. If you're looking for a campground in the Mount Washington Valley, SRCA would be hard to beat.

Hi There Tess Marie, Thanks so much for great feedback. We're thrilled you found the campground so nice. We're are sorry you were not anticipating a pet fee, but the majority of campgrounds in NH which allow pets do charge a fee.
