Dolly Copp Campground Renovation Project

Dolly Copp Campground in Gorham, NH is undergoing a multi-year renovation project. Many of the campground components were falling into significant disrepair; especially the water, wastewater and road systems. Buildings were in various stages of deterioration and few met the accessibility needs of visitors.

Campground will be open for 2019 starting May 24th. The north half of the campground is still closed for consturction and intermittent temporary closures may impact small areas of the south half of the campground on  short notice throughout the 2019 season.
