The White Mountains in New Hampshire are one of my family’s favorite destinations in the world to visit. We have explored the area many times and have hiked countless trails. The area is vast and beautiful — you could almost spend a lifetime exploring this wonderful National Forest. Standing at the foot of Mount Washington and looking up at the towering mountain is awe-inspiring. Traveling down the Kangamangus Highway or exploring the many small towns that call home nestled into this incredible mountain range is always memorable, and the waterfalls in the White Mountains, as well as many lesser-known treasures, are always worth a visit. So, when we planned to do some camping in New Hampshire, I guess you could say the excitement was hard to measure. We grabbed our gear and headed out for an amazing camping trip that created family memories that will last a lifetime. 

This trip was everything we had hoped it would be. We spent lots of quality time around the campfire and sharing meals cooked on our small camping stove. We played with our kids with the many fun options the campground offers. Our family hiked and conquered three mountain summits and were rewarded with amazing views. This weekend trip was something I have recommended to several people since and am proud to present it to you as well. So like the Lincoln Woodstock KOA likes to say “Get outdoors s’more” and enjoy this amazing National Forest in New Hampshire. Have you ever been to any of these places?
