Camping in Conway
« on: May 22, 2013, 05:42:37 PM »

Is there anyone out there with a good van camping spot around Conway?  :) Free would be the best option but it seems hard to come by in the area.  We are just looking for a place that is close enough to the climbing to cut down on the gas. Walmart is always an option but it would be nice to be in the woods.

Thanks

Not in north conway. Municipal law prohibited overnight camping. so, you can't use the parking lot as you can do in littleton or other places.

Closest legal good spot is up Town Hall Rd in Bartlett but I think that road has been closed since Irene. Many do successfully park overnight at the base of Cathedral but you might get woken at 3am if someone feels like patrolling there. I'm not sure if First Bridge is signed with no overnight parking... you could probably park in the climber's lot over at Whitehorse, keep a low profile, and not get noticed, also the parking lot outside the Echo Lake State Park gate... behind Flatbread (pull the curtains and who knows you're in there) lots of places I would attempt to park overnight but again they probably are not legal and you might end up with more than a warning...

LOL...

you can still park up at the top of Town Hall Rd and walk in a little bit. I believe that there are a couple of pulloffs up on Dundee Road as well.

Thanks all. ;)  The weather looks like it is going to be great next week. Just be on the look out for the creepy white van parked illegally around town.

PS:  Mopowers your driveway is next on the list of summer camping options.
