Thousand Acres Family Campground – Franklin, NH
Before reserving a tent site at Thousand Acres, I asked if this was a party campground. I was assured by their staff that the “Family” in the campground’s name meant just that, and that the 11:00pm quiet time was enforced by their security. I wanted this reassurance as we were camping with our 3 year old and 1.5 year old twins for the first time.
I somehow managed to fall asleep around 2:30am, being kept awake (with earplugs, no less!) by the blaring music from the loud, drunk, seasonal camper ‘neighbors’.
Luckily my kids somehow fell asleep around Midnight. I got up and went for a walk around the campground at 11:30pm, looking for this so-called security. No such thing. I saw other campsites with fires going and music playing, but at least their music was a bit softer. So much for security, the supposed quiet time, and the “Family” aspect.
There are two playground areas. The main playground has old, somewhat dangerous equipment. The other has wooden equipment next to the bath house. The pool and bathrooms were clean.
