EXPLORING "THE BASIN" (NH)

Our Location:
Lafayette Place Campground in Franconia Notch State Park
Franconia, NH


Located just a few miles south of our campsite on I-93 is a 20 foot round pothole known as The Basin. It's just a short walk from the parking lot, along the edge of the Pemigewasset River, to reach The Basin and it's well worth the modest effort it takes to get there. We started our walk around 7:30AM on a Tuesday morning and had the entire trail to ourselves.

    1. Thanks for the comment. We had a great time exploring the White Mountains, so sad we only planned a week in this area. We will absolutely have to come back some day.
