    Don't go there if you plan on having any fun. The last time I had fun there cost me $360 and a day in court. Before you ask, it was for posession of ONE joint...

    are you tenting and want only the basic neccessities?

    if so, the John Kennedy campground on rt 112( kanc) is pretty darn nice....

    if you want more amienities for tenting or bringing a camper check out Twin MT's Ammonoosuc campground or any of the KOA's in the area...

    Can ya still camp along Tripoli Rd? NOT Russell Pond campground, but ALONG Tripoli Rd? Used to be able to get a 'parking permit' and camp somewhere along there as long as you wanted. Good times back then...

    definitely hit up any of the STATE run campgrounds then on the Kanc........ I have camped at the JFK for years and never once had anybody come around to tell us to hush up or quiet down......

    plus there is a nice river running right next to it...

    it is ont he corner of 112 and Bear Notch road....


    they kicked one group out though last year for lighting fireworks and setting their own tent on fire from it...

    i think JFK sounds good, just because its right in the area that we're(I) looking to be in... that way we can shoot down the kanc and maybe hit up the lower falls or something

    EFF russell pond and Tripoli road. Both have cost me around a total of 600 bucks. Once for weed the second for walking across the road on tripolli with an open container. Still nto sure how walking across a road carries a 2 point license fine but it did on tripolli road.

    Both places two thumbs down.

    Back in the day, Tripoli road was where you went, period. Then in the mid-90's, they had that incident where that moron attacked a family with an axe and it was all over...

    My $360 fine was for schmoke too. Chief Morehead?
