Covered Bridge Campground is located in a thick forest along one of the most scenic drives in New Hampshire. This facility provides access to the heart of White Mountain National Forest and its many recreation opportunities such as hiking, biking, fishing and sightseeing.
The quaint town of Conway is just 6 miles away and provides shops, restaurants and other conveniences.
The White Mountains boast pristine forests, clear mountain streams and rivers and the tallest peaks in the Northeast. The forest encompasses nearly 800,000 acres in New Hampshire and western Maine, and is one of the most popular in the country.
The facility is organized into two loops. Accessible vault restrooms and a hand pump for water are provided. No showers or dump station are available.
Vehicles 7'9' or taller are unable to pass through the covered bridge due to height restriction for bridge (see driving directions for alternate route)
Please Note: Site fee includes one RV with tow vehicle, tent sites include two vehicles. If space allows a third vehicle would be an additional fee paid at time of check in.
Reserved Sites will be held until check out time (NOON) the day following your arrival date. Sites must be occupied by the checkout time of that following day to hold a reservation or the site will be forfeited and released to other guests. Once your reservation start date has begun, neither the Recreation.gov Contact Center nor the campground manager will be able to modify your reservation.
Refunds: Refund requests made through www.recreation.gov will be charged a $10 processing fee. This fee is retained by the reservation service contractor along with the non-refundable reservation fee. All requests for the return of the non-refundable reservation fee and the cancellation fee will be declined by the campground concessionaire as they did not receive these fees (these are the fees retained by the reservation contractor, a different entity).

The campground is nestled in an old hardwood forest near the Swift River. The forest is home to many species of northern wildlife, including moose, white-tailed deer and black bear. Almost 200 species of birds, including the rare Bicknell's Thrush, live in the forest.
The nearby towns of Conway and North Conway offer tours, shopping, restaurants and many other amenities.
Within an hour drive, campers can access the Presidential Range, which consists of the tallest mountains in the forest, including the 6,288-ft. Mount Washington, the highest peak north of the Smoky Mountains and east of the Mississippi River.
The White Mountains region hosts four alpine and five nordic ski areas, which provide year-round recreation opportunities.
The adjacent Kancamagus Highway, referred to locally as "the Kanc," is a National Scenic Byway that offers some of the best fall foliage viewing in New England. The 26.5-mile road connects the towns of Lincoln to the west and Conway to the east, and takes about one hour to drive from end to end.
The cool, cascading Swift River is a great spot to wade or fish for brook trout during warm summer months.
The area is extremely popular for hiking. The 3-mile Boulder Loop Trail and a 0.5-mile nature trail can be accessed near the campground.
