We stayed at AHC for 2 weeks in order to visit family in the area. Our feelings on this campground are quite mixed. We found the owners to be courteous and responsive when we had an issue. When we arrived check in was quick and polite. We were put in site #7. Here's where our issues with the AHC began. The site was very unlevel, we tried multiple positions and couldn't level the rig including using all our leveling blocks. I spoke to the owners who claimed that they had never had a problem with any big rigs at that site. Keep in mind the site was so unlevel that we borrowed 8 - 2x10 boards from the owners to add to our own 10 leveling blocks to finally get the rig level. The rear duals on one side were almost a foot off the ground!! For the owners to say they never had a problem borders on incredulous. On top of this we had requested a 50a site and received a 30a site. This CG is definitely not big rig friendly. Our site was sand/dirt as it appeared most sites were. We will not be staying here again. However, if I was camping in a smaller 5th wheel or TT and staying for just a few days I would consider it. It has a cozy feeling, the pool was nice, and they have lots of fun activities for families. - Dave and Deb

We stayed in a back in site. It was very tight getting in with our 44' MH. The site was nice. The fire pit was great. Restrooms and showers were very close by. Easy access to main roads. Would stay there again. - Chief55M

I gave this campground a 7 because a) it is one of very few options in the area and one of the best, and b) the staff was really nice. Otherwise might have been lower There is a huge variety of sites - some more private than others, some easier to get in, some full hookup, some W/E, some more sloping. We chose site 81 which is in a bit of a separate alcove with 3 other sites, W/E. It is next to the lake, and right next to the walking path along the lake. So it is much more private and quiet. The site was great when we stayed as campground was not full. Verizon stong - 3 to 4 LTE There are quite a few seasonal campers here who apparently leave their units over winter, or for periods of the summer, etc. I'm guessing summer and weekends would be quite busy The bathhouse we used was horrid - lots of bugs, not very clean. It cost a quarter for the showers! But WORSE was there was a dribble of water - hard to get hair washed. My husband paid his quarter and didn't bother showering. Shower head and handle flopping around - geez needs a lot of fixing. The office staff were great both on the phone and in person. We stayed here just for a night as we had flown into Manchester, rented RV, and then went to Maine for 2 weeks. Needed place near Manchester on nite before returning RV We are from Colorado - have a fifth wheel and truck camper - camp 10-12 weeks per year. Camping in Maine (and NH) is certainly different from the western US. - chinookgeo

This was a return trip for us but our first trip tenting here. This was our rough it weekend as we left the trailer at home and were tenting with the kids. We had 2 sites and plenty of room for 4 tents. It was raining when we checked in but the sites drained very good so all was good. We selected this campground because of the beautiful pool complex and without AC we wanted to be sure we could swim. We know that this campground is about 70% seasonal and has many golf carts but guessing due to the rain, a lot of seasonals were not there for the weekend. We found the campground to be somewhat quieter than in the past and we enjoyed our time there. We will return but probably with our trailer. - Happy Camper X2

This is a very large campground with lots of activity. Most of the sites were seasonal and the residents and guests get throughout the park in golf carts. We were here Memorial Weekend and it was so crowded you could hardly get to your site for all the kids on bicycles and the golf carts. This is a huge community of weekenders that leave their rigs here throughout the season. They had lots of staff that were very helpful. Interior roads are very tight. Had to unhook the tow to make the tight turns up the hill. - GMS Lucy

Great pool complex. Our site was plenty big enough, larger than many campgrounds we visit. Enjoyed a couple I've creams from the restaurant. Many seasonals with nice sites but they are some that are cluttered with too many tarps and canopies. The entertainment was enjoyable, loved the pool side music. - Happy Camper X2

Roads are a little tight (turns) Water 30 psi, shared spigot. My 35 foot hose just made it. Electric 125 volts Sewer hose will not screw on because it is in a concrete bowl Site not level (Wheels off the ground) and soft as my 5vers wheels sunk in about 2 inches into the ground. ABC is the only OTA channel, no cable AT&T and Verizon 3 bars Price based on a Monthly rate (4 weeks not 30 days) $962 (34.36 per night) I was billed for 30 days but only given 28. The new owners are very friendly. They just bought it a couple of months ago. - rynosback

This campground served its purpose for an overnight stay. It was raining when we arrived, so we didn't explore much of the campground. Seemed to be mostly permanent residents. Water, electric, and sewer were good. - RVhappyHere

Wish I did my homework before I booked this campground. My small site was clean and raked before we arrived, but I was surprised to find a 20 amp fuse (yes, fuse) for 27' class C. After the 3rd one blew, I was told by the owner not to run my AC even though it was 80 degrees, and that I would be charged for any more fuses. I plug the camper into my house all the time and have never had this problem. We decided to ride it out for the weekend anyways, but will not be back. If you like to party, this is the place to be. The crowning moment of my weekend was watching a full grown adult place his empty beer can on my neighbors car antennae as he staggered by at 2:00 in the afternoon with his homeys. They thought it was hilarious. Also watch out for Fido's land mines. I didn't see any proud pet owners walking their dogs equipped to, nor caring to deal with this after the deed was done. Just one camper's humble opinion. Till next time. - bighead1946

Probably the worst campground I've encountered. When I saw the site for our 22' TT, it looked like a place to park your tow vehicle. I wanted to change, but the only open site I saw was a pull through that was total mud. We were in a section on the map marked for transients, but they all looked seasonal to me. There was mud everywhere--on the roads, at the sites. Our site had no surface, but there were some spots that weren't mud so we decided to stick with it. You had better be damn good at trailer backing, as out site was as tight as I've ever seen. When the trailer was in, the hitch was almost in the road. Everything was in disrepair. However, the utilities, including wifi, worked well. They said they were Good Sam, and gave us the discount [and it cost 40.50], but I didn't seen any GS logos around. Unless you're really desperate, skip this one. - hudsonguy

This a a small campground that is off the beaten track. Very muddy with all the rain. The sites are mostly back in within loops. Our site was 59 and when we backed in we were blocking 58. I went back to office and she said not to worry about it. Very shaded site. We did get some satellite signals but not all. No issues with the utilities. Would not stay here again. - Vicki K

The name comes from that this place is 1 mile off of Hwy 9/202. Aside from the sign at the entrance, there is no clue that this place is here as it is buried in the woods near a small lake. This is primarily a seasonal campground and about 10% of the sites are set aside for short term visitors. Of these, I noted only 2 pull through sites and there is a small tenting area as well. We were presented with one of those full color maps at registration showing our site, but had difficulty locating it as there were no signs pointing to which numbers were at each junction and I simply missed the turn. Someone on a golf cart noticed we were lost and led us back to where our site was. Similarly, there was a stop sign with the register here notice, but until you found the office at the far end, you felt you were going to someone's home. Since most are permanent seasonal residents, signs are not needed for them. That being said, this is a very nicely laid out campground in the hills and woods. We were there mid week and most of the seasonals were away, so it was a very quiet evening. Overall, this is a very nice campground and I wouldn't hesitate to return. The hills and trees prevent satellite and OTA reception. - Trailbuddy

The park caters to seasonal campers, but has an open field for transient RVs, the "200's." The sites are somewhat cramped in the 200's and getting a 32ft TT backed into some of the spots can be challenging. They have a handful of pull throughs.
A neighbor RV did have problems with the park 50 Amp service, he had to use a dongle to utilize just half of his 50.
The best part of the campground is the pools. The kids had a great time in the pools. Sunday morning we ate in the campground restaurant, which was decent. - johnbaker

Nice environment, clean restroom/showers, well stocked camp store. Lots of seasonals. Transient site was in tightly packed area. Our site had lots of exposed roots. Cable consisted of 12 channels and was often fuzzy. Wi-Fi for a fee; did not use. Pools were nice. Game room was lacking. Adult rec building becomes breakfast restaurant on weekend and food is good (and reasonable). Single bar on AT&T and Verizon cell service. Overall good weekend experience. We would return. - Bigdave2165

This was the first time staying at Friendly Beaver. The facilities are great, tons for kids to do, dinners, big tractor drawn wagon rides, antique firetruck rides, horses & goats....the list goes on. The bathrooms were all clean & relatively easy to get to. The not so great was the "200 section" we stayed in. It is a large oval camping area just packed with sites. The back-in sites (along the outside) are tight. I have a 23' RV with one slide-out. I was lucky to not have any adjoining neighbors during the weekend, otherwise I would have been staring at their rig (or they at mine). I mean, with my slide-out extended, my awning touched the next site when it was out. I practically didn't fit. We asked about a more private/wooded site and was told those are mostly reserved for "monthly/Seasonal" folks. There are a huge amount of "full timers". They say they are strict with speed limits, but not with the brigades of golf carts. Those people flew around like they owned the place. A bit of a pun because I had a feeling a large amount of family/family friends actually do stay there. All in all it was a nice place. Lots for kids to do, 4 pools, one of which is an indoor heated pool. If we could camp in a nice wooded site we would go back. - BigNuge

Very clean deep in the quiet woods. No satellite but offers $4 day cable (should be free). Wi-Fi works well. No dogs on beach and no off leash area. Lots of seasonal people spread out but not very many showed up for weekend. Fishing with a license. Interior roads look scary at first but are manageable with no problems. - geo cong

Office staff ladies were great ! The computer had been off for 3 hours. She did a good job, not working with a computer..and allowed us to go to a site, later, a few hours later, the computer came back "on"and she verified the reservation we had made a few days earlier. The WiFi is very slow, we were within eye sight of the office, where the WiFi was located. The good news, we got 8 hours of free WiFi from the young lady at the office. The other nice lady tried real hard to get us hooked up to the Cable TV service. She was trying all the unmarked cable "on" site switches, but to no avail. So we got our $4 cable refund and disconnected. The sites are ample...and because we got there on May 8th at the start of their season, the place was fairly empty. Sewer connection at A26 is at about a 30 degree angle. So we simply stuck the raw end of our sewer flexible discharge line into their sewer line receptor and it worked fine. Our electric and water was on a down slope, you had to be careful not to fall down the slope, but the water and electricity worked fine. All in all, I would return for an over night stay..but without cable and WiFi, it would not be an inviting place to stay for a longer time. It is set in a nice forest environment. Office has a small store..good for temporary food. I liked the place. By the way, please be careful of the old covered bridge..it says it has a 9'9inch clearance, but my rig made it through, and we are 11 feet 3 inches in height. I checked the clearance before attempting to enter the covered bridge...and observed it was around 12 feet or more..so I went thru without a problem. I suspect the fake lower height is to discourage heavy rigs from using the old historic covered bridge. There is a short detour around to the south of the bridge to reach the park destination. I think it was a good value for my Passport America discount. - Joe O

Stayed 3 nights. Space was small and tight to get in and out. Campground mostly seasonal campers that appeared to have been in place for years. Was placed next to a seasonal that appeared to have been in the space for many years. Fire ring was unusable as not cleaned out from last camper. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Believe it was overpriced for the amenities and spaces. Would not stay again. Roads in area VERY difficult with most under repair. - Jimbeau

Oxbow Campground is all about families, with a range of activities available & planned weekend events. About 20% of the sites are designated for short term (3 days or less); the rest are seasonal. Campers leave their RVs set up & return on the weekends. Golf carts were commonplace, as the campground is fairly spread out.
The weekend we were here, passing through one night on the way north, there was a Halloween celebration (in August) with full blown decorations, the kids in costumes, hayrides, a DJ. This made for quite a lively & noisy campground. The kids, including the teenagers, seemed pretty happy, and nary a cell phone in sight (no service!!).
Our site (90) was nearer to the front, and so we had a lot of traffic around us, coming & going: cars, golf carts, pedestrians, Halloween celebrators, maintenance workers, people walking dogs, etc.
We had low hanging branches on our site that looked likely to damage our motorhome on the way out of the pull-through. The owner was very responsive to our request & immediately took them down.
There are tight turns, some large rocks on the edges of the driveways & lots of branches throughout the park.
The wifi is limited to the area in and around the office. - RockyMountainMama

This park is very disappointing. The campers beach was cluttered with sea weed and not being taken care of. There are two large mud holes that you have to walk thru to get to the campers beach. Camp sites aren't being raked as they should. Water at the camp ground was spotty and so it was hit or miss if you wanted water. Water was shut off without warning as I was taking a shower, half way thru, and was told I could go rinse off in the lake. There were pot-o-potties through out the camp ground. We were never told about the water issues. Trash dumpster was over flowing. All the staff do is drive around in their buggies. About all the staff do is clean the restrooms. Two sinks in the restroom next to site 166 were out of order. This place is so over grown you can't tell where the trails or paths are. NH needs to be putting some effort into this camp ground because people are not coming back. Look at your numbers. I for one might not be back. Very poor excuse of a campground. - pilots48

Price includes reservation fees. Sites vary, but most are big and spacious and deep. Sites are mainly dirt, but roads are all paved. No hookups, but water through out as well as permanent rest room buildings which were clean. Dump station available. Main shower building when you come in with parking and trash and recycling dumpsters are there as well. Nice swimming lake, but was closed during visit because of bacteria from rain they have been getting. Has boat ramp and nice new playground by picnic area. Campground has own swim beach. Sprint cell was spotty. Firewood was $6 for about 6 pieces. Store had limited supplies and souvenirs. They also had ranger programs. Will definitely come back again. - acenorm

This park is located in the southwest part of New Hampshire and as most of the state parks in New England will close on Columbus Day. There were only a few loops open and we were the only ones in our loop on a Sunday night. I think we might have been the only ones in the park but there were quite a few campers during the weekend checking out when we got here. No reservations needed during this time of year. There are no hookups but water spigots are located in each loop as well as bathhouses. Showers are located near the ranger station at the entrance as well as a recycling dumpster. There is a dump station. This park of 400 acres has huge sites and ours looked out through the trees in the distance over a small cliff towards Beaver Pond and Otter Lake. There are hiking trails throughout the park going by ponds, bogs, forest and Otter Lake which is undeveloped except for a public beach and a campers beach. Nice lake! In season there is a small park store but if you come during the week like we did you take a registration form, find a site and return to put it in a slot with your fee and information. The night we were there was the Supermoon Eclipse and even through there were trees we had a great view of it from our site and RV. The beach is OK, but the water is nice and clear and one can kayak from the beach. Nice park with bike riding, boating, fire rings, fishing, horseshoes, playground, restrooms, showers, and swimming.
This is a beautiful part of New Hampshire and it is in driving distance of Franklin Pierce University and some other small colleges that are located in this region. Cathedral of the Pines is also a short road trip away. This was a one-nighter for us but if we were in the area we would stop again to camp here. - gsnakehill

This is a weekend bring-the-kids kind of park for fairly local folks. Many trailers left on site through the season so families can come on weekends. We stayed in the G section comprised of back-ins with open sky for satellite access. Sites are HUGE and utilities worked well, although the hookups are at the rear instead of near the center. Owners need to trim the trees along the roads as they scrape the sides of RVs and they need to tend to the many pot holes. A little out the way from the interstate and 20 minutes+ to Concord, but an okay place to spend a few days. - ramblin' vagabonds

Limited choices in the Concord area, this is intended to be a destination campground and has a lot of seasonals. But it worked for me, I was in the newer section out in the open where my satellite dish worked, wifi did not. - ldukeb

Stayed in new 50amp gravel road area. Didn't have good feel of other seasonal sites plus golf cart drove behind your site for convenience from pool/ horseshoe pits. Nice pool and mini golf. Didn't find bathroom until leaving on seasonal side. My learning when they say they are putting you in the "new section". It maybe lacking the camping feel. Booked 9 mo ahead in hopes of a pond site. Be specific in what your asking for. - ThePattersons

A small campground in a quiet area with a beautiful pool with kids water slides. Transient sites were smallish and close together. Staff/owners and the seasonal campers were all very nice, we enjoyed the weekend here. Other than the pool, there isn't much else going on. They have an arcade in an old barn, and there is a hiking trail. There is a put-in for a kayak, but it was quite a hike to get to it. The campground was clean and nicely maintained. We would return with the kids to use the pool. - Mavenheath

Our first time here and I had read about the great donuts and the great owners. Well, on check-in I was told donuts are only available on holidays, which was disappointing, and I felt the owners were not that nice about the fact I asked about them. Anyway, we headed to our site which was easy to get into but with the length of our trailer I could not get it level. The site was on a hill and I backed up as far as I could go and lowered the front jack as far as it would go and we were still a bit unlevel. Anyway, all this aside, the place grew on me. After set up and dinner I went back to the office to check the pool times as they are not posted and was told 9:00, which was great. We had the older pool to ourselves so to cool off as everyone else was at the beautiful newer pool. Took a nice walk the next day and it is a real nice place. WiFi was a little slow and you need a password which I did not get. I guess it is written on the book they give you but mine was blank. Anyhow, since we were in the mountains and thunder storms started at 2, we were "lucky" and the mountains held the storms overhead for over 10 hours. Parts of the campground did flood, we went out to dinner rather than standing in puddles to cook. We plan to camp here again and hope that it is as enjoyable as the good parts of this weekend. - Happy Camper X2

Amazing pool and splash zone
Freshly made donuts on Saturday morning
Camp Store with DVD rentals
FHU with 50amp
Extremely clean bathrooms
Very nice seasonal campers
Seasonal Park and seasonals enjoyed watching us park our 45ft motorcoach on the first try! Everyone knows everyone so as a transient, you feel like an outsider.
Roads are dirt and it rained so super muddy
30 minutes from a town... so bring groceries if you are getting in late! - RVThatFamily
