The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Cold River Camp is a wonderful vacation destination for experiencing the charms of the White Mountains. Local hiking trails abound, from easy to challenging. Open summits, vast forests, cascading brooks, secluded pools. The Presidentials and North Conway are within striking distance for day trips, as are the Saco and Androscoggin Rivers.

Settle into your cabin for a week or partial week. Enjoy a hot breakfast in the lodge and make your trail lunch. Head out with other guests on one of the guided hikes offered daily and arrive back in time for a dip in the Cold River. Or do your own thing - hike, swim, paddle, bike or simply relax.

Discuss the day over a delicious dinner family-style in the lodge or sometimes picnic-style on the north lawn, then chat on the lodge porch, join in the evening activity or an impromptu board game, read a book in the library, play ping-pong in the rec hall, or prepare for the Friday night talent show.

Cold River Camp rests in the beautiful and undeveloped Cold River Valley, nestled in the White Mountains National Forest, a three to four hour drive from the Boston area. Community- oriented, family-friendly, guests have been enjoying outdoor adventures here since 1919
