Winter camping
« on: January 23, 2012, 07:34:36 PM »
Anyone know of a campground near north Conway that is open for winter camping? Looks like the dry river campground closes in October.

Thanks!

What/where do you want to climb/ski, and we can tell you where to camp?... 1/4 mile up the dry river trail is 100% legal if you’re planning on climbing in Crawford Notch/Frankenstein...

More than likely up in Crawford notch.

So if we just hike up the dry river trail 1/4 mile anywhere in the woods is good? Do you think we would be ok just leaving our camp there while we went climbing or should we break camp every day?

Thanks!

Should be fine... just locate it off the trail and out of site... 1/4 mile is too far for most thieves to walk in the winter...

I really though Dry River Campground let people camp during the off (closed)-season... but I may be wrong.

When you are ready to dry some clothes and sleep in a bed White Trellis in North Conway is pretty affordable, and there is a little motel in Bartlett right near Bear Peak that I think is even cheaper.
