Sun River Campground is an older, rustic campground that is run by a very friendly gentleman that accommodated our needs. There is no WiFi and the Verizon signal comes in and out. OTA television provides 10 channels, none of which are network channels. There's a river running adjacent to the campground that has a swimming area and a playground is available for children. We didn't use the bathrooms but they didn't appear to be in good repair from the outside. Water and electric only with a single dump station at the end of the road. The sites are dirt and a bit tight but we were able to park our 35' Class A and still have room for the toad. Overall it's not bad but don't expect luxury accommodations--truly, this is rustic. - fruffiii

Dirt/gravel road to get into the campground. Nice in the woods feel.Stayed on a site right next to the river-was very relaxing and scenic. My dog was able to go into the river in front of our site but had restrictions for the beach area.Would go there again. - stoosher

Only stayed one night. Pulled in early evening and left mid-morning. CG was almost empty. Owners/operators were very nice. Have very enjoyable walk around park before we left. - Goodcruisin

A nice lady took us to our campsite. It was OK. A lot of seasonal or permanent people there and the ones by us were very loud and up late outside. Never saw any staff except at the office. When it rained some of the park became a mud hole including our spot. No gravel. The picnic table was covered in bird poop. Sewer was very high and we had to put blocks under the trailer to drain. Good central location and very rustic. Woodsy. Just a site. A no frills campground. - Joan J

We used to live in the area but we moved to North Carolina. This is our go to place when we come back and visit family. The owner is the best. Epsom Valley Campground is our home away from home. Mostly seasonal sites with a few overnights. We always feel welcome here. - wahooo

We have stayed at Great Meadow several times over the past few years. It is conveniently located near I-93 in Concord, the state capital which is centrally located for the entire state. The sites are fairly spacious and level and full hook-up. Due to the trees and the topography we were unable to use our satellite or OTA antenna and had to get a cable box to be able to watch TV (additional $10.00 deposit). It is not a direct connect from the pedestal to the RV connection. You must go through the cable box. They have a gated entrance which requires a card to enter ($25.00 deposit). We have stayed at over 250 campgrounds and have never had to give a deposit for a cable box or gate card. They also charge and additional $5.00 for day visitors. The clerk told me this was for the many amenities they have. I checked the laundry although I did not use it, and it was very clean. The pool had closed for the season (understandable). They did have a free breakfast and community campfire while during our stay and do have other activities like outdoor movies, dancing, playground and horseshoe pits. While we were there the office was rarely open and we had to call someone to the office both to check in and to drop off the cable box and gate card to get our deposits back when we checked out. We will probably stay here again due to the convenient location. - J Corsetti

The site we put a deposit down for was given to another couple who had friends camping at same campground even though we were told we could have that site when asked and confirmed. Observing during our stay they were all friends of the owners, now I know why. Not good business! Pool is nice, game room needs a lot of work and cleaning. Lady at front desk very nice, young man when asked why we didn't have our site we were promised he couldn't give a straight answer. We wanted to go fishing but all boats down back had water in them and if you like fishing in weeds this is the spot for you! Not impressed. Wifi worked when it wanted too, water smelled like sulfur really bad it was gross on the site we had. We decided we won't go back here if you can't rely on their word. - HappyCamper67

We were camping at Crown Point in Strafford however we had a problem with our landing gear so we went to Camping World at Chichester to get repairs. CW could not see us until the next morning so they recommended Great Meadows just down the street. The office is so full of cigarette smoke you can hardly breathe and the lady told me "Cash Only" - $38. My pull thru sight she gave me was so narrow it took me several attempts to finally get parked. Because of the landing gear problem we could not disconnect from the truck. I took my dog for a walk around the campground - very rough roads, a few good back in sights but most were either seasonal or very rough. Dog droppings everywhere! Cable TV did not work - WiFi didn't either. Will never stay here again - Larry Jenkins

This is goof for a night or two. There are only a few sites available for stays like ours. The new inground pool is within walking distance. It is cash only payments. Upon checking in you are given an electronic pass card to life arm to drive onto grounds after hours. There is no fence so you or anyone else can walk into campground. Lots of permanent campers but neat. If you plan an early departure the office opens at 10 AM so I suggest you turn the pass card in the day before since we did not see a drop box, only a mail box. Grounds were clean. - petpeople

Site was clean. Power was 121v. at 30amps. WiFi was iffy and being discontinued. WiFi by cell phone was good. Cable TV was good. Water pressure was good. Got level by adding 1-1/2 inches on the left side. Has a fishing pond. What's so bad about this place for an overnight? One caution: probably better for trailers than motorhomes because of the sloping sites. - BbTrombone

We should have left this park as soon as we entered. This campground has potential to be nice, but no one is making any effort. We didn't check out the bathrooms because the entrance to them was so dirty and uninviting we didn't want to go any further. - CKB

No problem with reservations although original assigned site was not available due to a late checkout of the previous camper. Was told the assigned site was better than the original. Not much to look at, as it backed up to a backwater area off of a small pond, view was mostly dead limbs and black muck, but at least there weren't any bugs. There are other sites that were occupied when we arrived that would have been better. Neighbor voluntarily re-staked his chained dog to the opposite side of his site after we arrived. Owner was helpful and pleasant. Gate card required a $10 deposit. Wi-Fi didn't work in our location and I didn't try the TV. We were here for 4 nights as we were visiting family in the area. We only spent the nights here.
It seemed to be a party spot over the holiday weekend for locals and the many permanent residents. Children seem to have a great time riding bikes and fishing in the small pond. There were some dead limbs in the trees over our site and was glad we didn't have a significant wind storm while we were here.
There are not many better choices in the area. We were here 20 years ago and it is not how I remembered it then. - Trailbuddy

We stayed at Circle 9 for 12 days while waiting for Camping World to process some warranty work on our RV. We chose Circle 9 based on the five minute drive to Camping World and past reviews. The good: Site 127 is a pull through and we had no issues getting setup. We were guided to our spot by the owner, and he made sure we had everything we needed. Water and electric were fine, wifi was upgraded during our stay and worked well, except when the park was full during NASCAR race weekend, then it was intermittent.
The bad: The pull through sites are not the widest and alternate directions so our door faced our neighbors. This also meant sharing a picnic table and fire ring. This would be ok if camping with friends, but could pose a challenge with strangers. Our first weekend there a majority of the seasonal campers were out in force and the beer was flowing. A group of them setup at the horseshoe pits, which are near the temporary sites, and were getting rowdy, although the owner did send them back to their sites when he felt they were getting carried away. Quite a few seasonals don't leash their dogs and others who did had such long leads that dogs could still get near the roads which made walking our dogs challenging. The temporary sites are in an open field with no shade from the sun at any time of day. If the temperatures are moderate then its ok, otherwise expect your A/C to work overtime.
The pool was open but we did not use it.
We did hear the new owner has been in place for a year now and he does keep order when needed and seems to be keeping many in line. We need to be back in the area for more RV work so we most likely will return to Circle 9 after comparing it to other campgrounds in the area. - pfogleboch

This has to be the worst campground I ever stayed in. I came to this location because it was close to NASCAR. It was 90 degrees and the pool wasn’t open. Looks like it has been inoperable for some time…wish they would have told us. The limited sites that they have are very small with one utility pool per 2 sites. Every other RV parks in opposite direction…meaning my door was facing my neighbors door. I think my awning and my neighbors were only a few feet apart. The seasonal campers weren’t just seasoning it appears they live there with make shift enclosures over very old travel trailer. Not a very desirable clientele. You had to pay for WIFI, bathrooms were dated and at this cost I would have expected a much nicer campground. This is a quick overnight stay location that shouldn’t cost more that $25-$30 dollars. - E597283

Basic park. I was in site 1 right next to the office and I could see very little of the rest of the park as sites are interspersed among the trees. There were few trees in the area where I was parked and the afternoon sun in August was harsh. Avoid this spot--particularly because they charge three dollars extra a day for use of air conditioner. Water electric and sewer were provided and they were easy to access. My Verizon, if I recall correctly worked OK. Not a place, particularly in the area where I was parked, that I would want to spend any amount of time but good for a stop over. The spots further into the wooded area may have been nicer. The owner of the park is quite gracious and helpful. - nanzhere

This was an overnight stay for us as. We found the owner expecting us when we arrived (we had a reservation) and friendly. The sight was large and easy to back into. We would stay here again if in the area. - 1coloradan

We stayed here on Coast to Coast. Very remote, quiet campground. Our space was huge. Pretty much had our section (right behind the office) to ourselves all week. Seasonals came on the weekend. I didn't look at the restrooms, but my husband said they were really bad. And if he thinks they were bad, I would have thought they were horrendous. But again, I didn't look at them. Make sure you bring lots of food & supplies with you because the nearest full grocery store is almost to Concord (30+ miles west). Not a whole lot to do in the area unless you are there for Nascar races. We weren't, but did do a lot of driving around on beautiful back roads. Beautiful country. Would definitely stay there again. - lebamster

We stayed here for one week in mid-October and toured the lakes region and White Mountains areas, and viewed beautiful fall leaves. The campground is very spacious and clean. Interior roads and sites were gravel and roads had quite a few potholes, but good access with our large motorhome. For some reason there is no laundry facility, which is not acceptable for such a large and fairly pricey CG. - Mark 5

This campground has 50 amp service, water and sewer accommodates big rigs. Two of our local friends recommended Turtle Kraal to us. We were not here to be entertained because "The Lakes Region" has so much to offer. We appreciated, as owners of a campground in PA, the hard work and money that was put into this campground. There are a lot of seasonal campers and park model homes on the perimeter of the campground. They appeared to be neat, orderly, well kept and clean. We toured the campground and saw the pool and games. When walking the dogs, I even got a glimpse of a small cow moose near the boat parking area! We used our own MiFi so we didn't need the wifi in the campground. - fourseasonscamping

This is a large park in a big field with pull-throughs in the middle with good satellite access and back-in sites along the heavily-treed periphery. The price seemed a bit high, but it is in the middle of the Lake Winnipesaukee resort area. The two pages of rules included a prohibition of bird feeders "as they attract wildlife." Late arrivals are not permitted but the check-in hours of 1 to 5p.m. may be flexible. The park was about 50% occupied, way up from our visit a couple of years before. Most of the RVs seemed to be seasonals. WiFi worked well under these conditions. The camp has a pool and a pond and access to a finger of the Lake. Bluegills but nothing bigger were biting on worms. For a fine meal, try Shipley's at the Pier in nearby Alton Bay. Get a window table for a view of the lake and check out the wall photos of lake activities including private planes landing on the frozen lake in the winter. For cyclers, the Cotton Valley Rail Trail is an easy and pleasant ride from its start in Wolfeboro. Knight's Pond conservation area has a small body of water; a path around it from the "picnic area" (no tables; only rocks to sit on) presents challenges: take it clockwise, wear hiking boots, use a walking stick, and watch for the blue blazes. Map available on the Internet. Enter from NH 28 via Rimes Road, not Knight's Pond Road, which is private. - Mtmoi

The grounds are generally clean. In particular, the staff are extremely friendly and courteous. I recommend calling ahead if you think you may need to extend your stay, so that they can arrange for accommodations. - leroyjones

As a racing fan and don't want to travel or get stuck in traffic, the NHMS is very accommodating. Basic rate is $100 and can stay up to a week before race. We stayed 4 nites for the $100. Of course need to buy race tickets for Sunday race. Different lots available, with family lots and what we called after our experience last year the 'party lot'. State troopers do try to keep 'fans' quiet. They do state 'quiet' hours, again state troopers do try to stick to rules. Need to be self-contained though as there are no hook-ups, etc. This year I did change to the 'family lot'. They do pack you in there too. So if you plan on leaving before Monday morning make sure you are parked on one of the roadways. But again, nice to be able to walk back and forth quite easily to track, but they do have shuttles to drive by the RV lots. Again, of course with my husband and I being nascar race fans, this is the way to go. - telm59

A large park with sites for primitive tent camping, tents with electric and water, full hook up for RV, sites for weekenders and sites for "seasonal" some permanent. The park is clean, nearly every long term camp site is tidy, although some have a fun large collection of yard art. The playground is nice, there is a nice fishing spot, the snack bar made us some wonderful steak subs! Pool is updated and large. Beach is clean. Horseshoe pit is well maintained. The park is CASH only. No pet visitors during Race weekends or Motorcycle weekend. - car2ner

This is a very large RV park. MANY of the sites are used by longtime tenants. The area for big rigs that are short-term is way in the back of the park. This area has no trees and therefore no shade. It could use some TLC, but on the whole is pretty good. We stayed a week, at the weekly rate. The owners were friendly and helpful. The internet router had been struck by lightning, so it wasn't working most of the time it we were there. However the day it did work, it was strong. The park is close to Loudon and convenient to all conveniences. We would stay here again. - GranNan06

Park is larger than it appears from the road. The owners are very helpful and co operative. There are a lot of locals who have permanent sites in this facility. We were allowed to recieve additional quests without additional cost. We picked a full hook up site and didn't use any of the parks facilities other than a clean well supplied outhouse.
I would definately stay at this park again. - Ritzigal

Excellent opportunity for skiing or snowboarding family to winter camp right at the mountain. The roads are plowed as is your site. Plenty of back in sites with warm clean restrooms and a 5 minute walk to the base lodge of the ski resort. The park desperately needs cable TV as there is no over the air TV reception. - Flintstones

Excellent RV destination for winter camping (as we did). Perfect RV park about 7 minute walk to base lodge for skiing and riding, or very short walk to cross country ski base lodge. Winter camping at Gunstock is lots of fun, the mountain is very family friendly with ski programs for all ages and weekly and weekend promotions for lots of resort products and services. The mountain has excellent grooming, 99% snowmaking, and the trails and glades are for all skill levels. - Flintstones

They are doing construction and there is a new entrance. Getting in is confusing. At the registration office there is no clear instructions for where to park while registering. We just stopped in the roadway. We were given site A3 but it was not clearly marked. When driving a big rig on narrow dirt roads, clear signs are appreciated. Our site was large but not level. Even with 3 or 4 inches of legos, we slope down hill. Today we may try to change position of our coach. This may not be a problem for more experienced RV'rs. It's a beautiful area and a big campground, scenic but nothing special. - Carodox
