    This is a great little no-frills state park campground. It is right outside of Gorham, and close to Mount Washington and the Presidential Range. The camp sites are very secluded with tons of space between them. I've stayed here three times now; twice on my motorcycle in a tent and once in a tow-behind RV, and will surely stay here again. If you're looking for an RV park with full hook-ups and a ton of amenities, this is not the place. If you like secluded camping with a 1930s park feel, this is it. Most sites are very spacious for larger RVs. However, backing in larger rigs is difficult in many sites due to the trees and twisty tight campground road. We stayed at site 9, which was one of the better, more secluded sites in the campground. We have a small 27 foot tow-behind trailer RV, and the site was plenty big enough to accept this plus some, but backing it in was quite difficult, and was approaching the maximum size for this site due to trees along the road. There is a small camp store/ranger station, a few hiking trails, a creek, two ponds (one of which is called a pool, but it is a pond that can be swam in), a small playground, which was really just a slide, and a nice clean bath house. If you're headed up this way, definitely stay at Moose Brook!

    Excellent State Park, very well-maintained with clean bathrooms. Showers work using quarters. Tent sites available under tree canopy or in a field. The person in the office was friendly and efficient. The campsite had a fire ring and a picnic table and was reasonably flat. Really enjoyed staying here!

    Lovely campground. Spacious sites and clean restrooms. Staff was friendly. The one coin machine in the shower did not work correctly. You need to put 3 coins in at a time. The directions lead you to believe that you can put in 4 - 5 quarters for a longer shower. It just eats any extra quarters and the time does not increase.

    Great state park. Classic American CCC project from the Great Depression era of the 1930s. Remarkably well-maintained, and the staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. They obviously take great pride in their work, and it shows. Lots of mosquitoes in early June when I was there, but that's par for the course that time of year. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the proximity to the highway and railroad which made for a few sleep interruptions due to the sound of trucks or trains in the middle of the night. Not a major issue for me, but for those looking for absolute quiet you may need to go elsewhere. And did I mention they have squeaky clean bathrooms and hot showers for 25 cents per minute? Nice.

    We have camped here four times now since 2014. Have never had an unpleasant experience until today. We just finished our six night vacation, and as SOON as we pulled into our driveway we got a call from the park office. They sighed and mentioned "the condition we left the site in". I immediately started going over the site in my head, ticking off imaginary boxes thinking to make sure that we didn't leave any trash behind. I even took a broom and swept the entire base of the fireplace. I also made sure to wipe down the picnic table the night before we left. I couldn't imagine why were being called about the condition we left it in. Chalk. Washable chalk. They were calling us to complain about the chalk that was already 99 percent washed away from the previous rain storm. It's funny, because I picked up at least five beer bottle caps from our site during our stay and we didn't have beer. But chalk that literally washes away with water is a big issue for them. The campground is nice, but they should definitely put more attention towards the literal trash that people leave behind, and the people that ignore signs posted around about no swimming in fishing spots instead of scolding us for having chalk on our site. Chalk that we even went as far as picking up every used piece before we left! 🤦‍♀️ Like I said, we have been here four different times...but this will be our last. Plenty of better options.
