Tight quarters with thousands of other campers, but a great way to experience the oldest agricultural fair in New England. Even though we live in the next town to Fryeburg, we stay in our motorhome all week at the Fair. It's a tradition we love. We see many regulars and always meet new campers. Because of the crowds and small camping lots, it's best to come early and stay late. The staff is helpful but usually stressed by the end of the week. Hint... Use the "honey wagon" service... for $10. they will empty your tanks with a day's notice (sign up at the camping office.) Then, you can pull out the next day and avoid a long line at the dumping station. See you at "The Fayah." We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is at the Fryeburg Fair which is one of the biggest fairs in New England, second to Springfield. Camping starts in 2007 for Sat September 29 through Sunday October 7. It is at the fair and they have over 3000 campers stay during the week. You can stay in the Trackside or Fairview areas. We stayed in the Fairview. This is bumper to bumper camping but with electricity and water, no bathrooms. There are showers though on the fairgrounds for pay. Considering it costs over $10 to park a camper in one of the parking lots around the fairgrounds, paying to camp for around $26 a night for water and electricity is not a bad price. The fairgrounds and everything going on is right there in walking distance. Tuesday is senior day for free entrance to get into the fair and they have nightly entertainment. It is a good time – you must stay at least two nights and most people stay for the week. This fair has lots to eat, great halls with homemade crafts, furniture, and events like the piglet run, skillet throw and the lumberman contests. It is different. The schools in this area are closed for this week; last year they had over 400,000 people attend the fair. Most campers that you see during this time even along the Kancamagus Highway are all heading to the Fryeburg Fair. It is also near North Conway, New Hampshire with all its discount shopping and great places to eat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
