Littleton / Franconia Notch KOA Holiday
With its tree-shaded, level and grassy sites, this secluded campground is an extraordinary base for exploring the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont’s Green Mountains.
This campground is a bit further out than the others. It is about a 30 minute drive north from the Flume Gorge. The plus about this campground is that they offer a variety of cabins in case you don’t want to tent camp. The KOA is also known for their family friendly amenities such as a pool, a game room, and even a gold mining station.
