Pitch your tent, sit by the campfire, then fall asleep to the sound of a babbling brook. No need for any of those new-fangled sleep sound machines at Lafayette Place campground! Sites are on the moderately-wooded side, but are large enough for several tents. Be sure to be bear aware as the campground store is LOADED with treats—popcorn, cookies, the works—you’ll just have to eat it all before lights out!

HUGE campground but the only one that is at the trailhead for the fantastic Franconia Ridge loop so its worth it. Hit the trailhead early and you will be back in camp while everyone is still on the trail which makes it perfect for a mid afternoon snoozer. Showers are incredibly nice, fifty cents for 4 minutes.

Best place to go if you are not familiar with the area or don't want to drive far as there are many trails that start at the campground, from mountains to bike trails to leisure trails. I have been coming here since I was little and have never had a bad experience.

Water! If you can't fill up along your trek, bring purifying tablets - they're cheap and will keep you from getting sick.
