NH Camping with my 6 Year Old. Suggestions?

(1/2) > >>

AEM:
Hi all,

I am planning a trip to NH with my 6 year old daughter at the end of August.  I was wondering if anyone could recommend a nice campground in the Mt. Washington area that has good exploring, maybe a little TR or boulder potential in the area, and a low key atmosphere (no all night partying).  Would love to give her a taste of the White Mountains, but it's been a while since I have been up there and my trips have all been winter jaunts.  We will be camping mid-week, so hopefully availability should still be good.

Thanks for any input you might have!

assuming she can swim... the campnig along Dugway Road has easy hikes.. esp sundoam area and then you can get in the River.

AEM:
We were swimming in the Seneca rocks swimming hole 2 weekends ago! The 6 year old isn't swimming on her own yet, but a safe area to access the river would be great. I will look it up, thanks for the tip.

Covered Bridge Campground on the Kanc, has everything you want, nice mellow river swimming, sandy beach right under the bridge about 3 feet deep, bouldering/ roped climbs right near the campground and hiking trails all around, great for kids

I second this, Covered Bridge sounds exactly what you are looking for. Look up the “Lost Horizon” climbing area in the routes section of this website. You can get to the Boulder Loop trail by easy bushwhacking for 2 minutes from the campground. Lots of great non-climbing things to do along the Kanc as well. I highly recommend Rocky Gorge with kids. Great little loop trail around a nice mountain pond. Might get some other ideas for kid stuff on my blog, www.adventurewithalex.com. There’s a trip report for some of the smaller short hikes in the area.
