The Best Glamping in the White Mountains
The most rugged mountains in New England are actually part of the northern Appalachians. The Whites can be further divided into the Presidential Range, Franconia Range, Sandwich Range, Carter-Moriah Range, and Kinsman Range, with hundreds of miles of trails for all abilities. At 6,288 feet, Mt. Washington is the White’s most well-known mountain. It’s the tallest in New England and famous for its brutal weather patterns.
Hiking may be the most popular activity in the White Mountains, but it also boasts a number of scenic drives (check out the Kancamagus Highway), lots of gorgeous waterfalls, and lovely lakes and rivers for paddling. Here are some great spots for glamping in the White Mountains, as well as outdoor recreation opportunities nearby.

Huttopia White Mountains is a lakeside retreat in the very heart of the White Mountains. Close to great hiking and the White Mountain National Forest.
