List and locations of all the NH State
Park Campgrounds on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in
NH from East to West:
"Due to the lapse
in agency funding, the sale of all types of
permits (i.e., recreation, firewood, forest
products, mineral materials for example) are
suspended, recreation.gov reservations are
suspended, and all federally owned recreation
sites are closed. All offices are closed. These
services will be available once funding is
fire suppression, and other essential services
will continue without interruption."
