    Wonderful views and hikes if the weather cooperates. No cell service with Verizon or AT&T. Camped at dry river campground. Huge site, but very tight to get in and out with a big camper (we have a 30' bumper pull). No electric. Water at campground. No dump station. Yes dumpster. Many hikers on the Appalachian trail. Great waterfalls.

    WOW 😲! My first 🥇 time visiting was as a kid, but, even though I enjoyed the views, camping and swimming in the streams, I didn't enjoy being carsick. I visited on and off in my younger years. I brought my son for snow tubing. My last visit was by train 🚂🚃 from North Conway. Now, I'm exploring NH waterfalls, trails and history. Crawford has it all, including camping, swimming, breathtaking views and the possibilities of seeing wildlife such as bears 🐻 or moose. Places I have visited that I recommend; Ripley, not the woman who fought Aliens, and Arethusa Falls, Davis Path trail, Silver Cascade and Willey House and Pond and trail. Driving RT 302, you 🙈 see so much! My heart breaks when I have to leave! I recommend a visit!

    Great hiking, spectacular views. Arethusa Falls was beautiful, but don't forget to bring $5 cash to pay for parking at the trailhead. Flow volume was pretty low but still well worth viewing, and I can't imagine how spectacular it would look in the springtime or after a decent rain. We also stopped for ice cream at the historic Willey House, and learned about the tragic history of the property.

    The foliage made this hike over the top. We did the hike up the the falls but there are several routes. In most places the trail was wide enough for others to comfortably pass in either direction. Very well marked and clear trail routes. Bring a towel so you can enjoy the cool water!

    Beautiful setting to just take a break from the crazy life we all live in today. The colors and terrain in the fall were some of the most colorful we have witnessed. The pops of red amongst the browns and orange made this a great day for some lead peeping. There are several stops along the roads for a good hike or picnic. We will be back for sure.
