Hi, I’m Cristin Bailey of the White Mountain
National Forest. Camping is a very popular activity in the White Mountains. Can you guess
how many campgrounds are in the National Forest? Is it 12, 23, 32, or 41? Stand by for the
answer. White Mountain National Forest offers a variety
of camping experiences from developed campgrounds to wilderness settings, so you are sure to
find accommodations to suit your needs and your pocket. The general rule is that you
can camp outside of forest protection areas anywhere that is 200 feet from a trail or
water source, 1/4 mile from any hut, shelter, or established campsite, and is not above
treeline. Time to answer our question: how many campgrounds
are there within the White Mountain National Forest?
There are 23 campgrounds in the Forest. Some are year-round, but most operate mid-May to
mid-Oct. They have tent pads, picnic tables, fireplaces or fire rings, running water and
toilets. All campgrounds provide basic services, with no hookups. Daily fees are charged to
help cover costs and entrance signs identify fee areas. Thank you for visiting the White Mountain
National Forest. Keep watching to see more ways to enjoy yourself during your stay.
