"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."
The Kancamagus Highway is open year round. There
are times when the Kanc is closed for bad
weather. The highway is maintained year round,
even plowed in the Winter. December - March are
times of heavy snowfall. When the Kancamagus
Highway is closed, it is only closed until crews
can clear the highway for travel.
Some campgrounds are closed on and off due to
repairs or maintenance. High winds can bring
trees down, which can close a campground until
crews are able to clean up.
These closures happen on and off throughout the
year but tend to be very short issues that won't
affect your trip to the Kancamagus Highway.
Bear Notch Rd
Bear Notch Rd that connects Bartlett NH to the
Kancamagus Highway (Rt. 112) is closed during
the winter months.
