Campton Campground is a family-oriented overnight area that also caters to fishers, hikers, and even canines.
Hiking opportunities are abundant at Campton, with several multi-purpose trails just a short distance away from the grounds. Normal canine rules apply on the bulk of the trails, so make sure Fido has their leash firmly attached. Out of respect for fellow guests -- and to avoid attracting potentially dangerous wildlife -- make sure you keep the ground clean and pick up any messes left behind by your four-footed companion.
Isolation is the name of the game at Campton, with most sites situated a fair distance away from each other. No hookups are provided, so be sure to come prepared for a self-contained experience here. Coin-operated showers come standard, as do multiple access points for drinking water. Campers should take note that not every site is close to bathroom facilities, so make sure to verify your location when making reservations. Canines are free to accompany campers in these areas on-leash but are to be kept out of buildings.
Campton is also known for its fishing, with fly fishing being the main draw here. Species commonly seen are pickerel and brown bullhead, among others. Be sure to pack your fishing license along with your gear. Boating is another pawpular activity, but if you plan to launch out onto the water, note that only non-motorized watercraft are allowed.
Interpretive nature programs are held seasonally and are geared more towards youngsters, which makes Campton great for families. For more information on these programs, be sure to reach out to the campground before your stay.
