    Hello all! A LONG time ago I hiked Mt Washington and camped there. I want to take my son on a 3-5 day hiking/camping trip in that same area for his graduation in June. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas where the best places to rough it are?

    The possibilities are endless. Too many great hikes to name just one. Try out some of the other presidential ranges. Pretty much anywhere in the White mountains your gonna find great hikes. How old is your son? Does he like hiking long distance or is he more into the camping?

    I was thinking about doing the Presidential Traverse hike. He is 18 and I think he could handle it. But I have read camping is no longer allowed, is that true?

    My wife hiked the presidentials and LOVED it. I can’t confirm anything on new camping rules but we camped in the tuckerman ravine lean to’s about two years ago. There’s also a bunch of huts that I believe you can stay in.

    The Appalachian trail goes over the preidentials so I would imagine you would have an easy time finding camp.

    I haven't done that one. I've had lots of friends who have. Did you hear that just on the traverse you can't camp? I could be wrong but I thought you can camp anywhere in the White mountains unless posted, and you have to be a quarter mile off the trail.

    Are you looking to car camp or backcountry camp? For car camping Dolly Copp campground was just rebuilt last summer and is in a great location near Pinkham Notch. Backcountry camping you have a few options. AMC Huts are $$$ but a great experience and you have the benefit of not having to carry as much gear. Other options are the various shelters and tent sites operated by both the AMC and RMC. RMC has shelters in the northern Presis. AMC has Hermit Lake at the base to Tuckerman ravine and Nauman which is in the Southern Presis.
