You won’t find Yogi Bear and water slides here, but if you enjoy simply camping, there is no better place. The serene campsites are exceptionally well groomed and maintained and the hospitality from the owner and help is amazing. It is my new favorite place to tent. 

In the morning, I was greeted by cool breezes and warm sunshine. I decided to stroll the rest of the campground and was absolutely delighted at what I found. I guess its fair to say that words cannot describe how immaculately clean the bathrooms were, big huge private walk-in shower with WATER PRESSURE! Outlets, clean sinks, the smell of cedar, it was truly as nice as any home or hotel bathroom. All of the outhouses were spotless and well-maintained. Nestled in a tremendous gorge surrounded by the splendor of the Mahoosuc Range with the river running by, Grafton Notch Campground gets my absolute approval should you decide to try a different kind of luxury.

If you are a hiker and want to be close to the Grafton Loop Trail and Appalachian Trail, Grafton Notch Campground is the place for you to stay.  Open from mid May through Columbus Day, it features 14 wooded camp sites with a fire ring and picnic table plus a bath house with hot showers and flush toilets.  

The cost to pitch a tent or park an RV is $25 per night for two people. There is a $5 charge for each additional person up to six people per site.  The cost for using the trailer dumping station is $10.  There is no electric or water hook ups, and generators are not allowed. 

A $25 deposit plus $5 processing fee is required to guarantee a reservation.  The deposit will be fully refunded for cancellations received two weeks prior to the arrival date. However, the processing fee will not be refunded.  Reservations may be made with a credit card. 

Dogs are welcome; however, they need to be on a leash. 

Swimming, fishing and boating are available nearby, and the Campground will gladly connect you with local guide services. 

Check in starts at 1:00 p.m. and check out ends at 11:00 a.m.
