The White Mountain National Forest is fun for everyone, in any season. If you’re looking for a prime boating and fishing spot, then Russell Pond is an excellent option. This developed campsite isn’t the place to go for peace and quiet, but you’ll have access to all the amenities you could want (including hot showers.) So, go ahead, clean that camp grime off… who says getting outside always has to be dirty? Oh, and we almost forgot to mention the stunning location of these campsites—they’re snuggled into the hillside overlooking Russell Pond. Not too shabby, right?

Love this place so much, continues to be my favorite campground. More private than some of the state campgrounds and is away from roads and traffic. Beautiful pond for swimming, fishing, boating, or just lounging in. Feels secluded and quiet and the hosts are always great.
