The Kancamagus Highway (NH Route 112) meanders through the White Mountain National Forest between Interstate Rt 93 and NH Rt 16. Along the way there are several National Forest campgrounds. My favorites are Jigger Johnson and Covered Bridge campgrounds, but nearly all offer great family camping.
Keep in mind the conditions are VERY rustic. Most campgrounds do not have hot showers or flushing toilets, however, Jigger Johnson does have these amenities. Without showers, most folks bathe in the nearby Swift River using biodegradable soap, but even in summer, the water is mighty chilly! Even so, the scenery and available outdoor activities make it all worthwhile.

Unique Qualities: See the website below for a complete listing of campgrounds and their amenities. Most campgrounds cost about $16 per night.
