Crawford Notch Camping

Crawford Notch Camping – Harts Location, NH – Crawford Notch is the steep and narrow gorge of the Saco River in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was first discovered in 1771 by a hunter who was tracking a moose. It was a well used Native American trail but it is said there were no settlements inside the notch. The first settler to the area was Abel Crawford who came in 1792. He built a log cabin at the Northern end before selling the land to his father-in-law and moving to the Southern end. Together with his son Ethan Allen Crawford, he blazed the first trail to the summit of Mt. Washington and began guiding trips, helping to pioneer the outdoor recreation industry in New England.
