Milton, NHMi-Te-Jo Campground. There's even a 5' chainsaw-carved statue of the big guy himself, dressed in camping gear, right outside the office. I would like to think this Mi-Te-Jo (Young) is not commemorating the 1998 remake which was even worse than the original!
This is a family campground which carries with it the usual baggage of kids running around everywhere and having a good time. And there's a lot for everyone to do with a softball diamond, hoops, beaches, swimming in the lake, basketball court, tennis court, trails everywhere, pavilions for entertainment when it rains, eating areas. But the main thing is you need to keep an eagle eye when moving the rig or driving your truck/towed cuz kids (mostly unsupervised) seem to pop up out of nowhere.
There's no pavement anywhere. Camp sites parking surfaces are often a coarse sand (probably has the usual coarse gravel below the surface) which drains pretty well. They'd had rain the day before but the surface was no problem to walk on, though I did see a noticeable track from our rig's tires.
The town of Milton is a small and pretty community arranged along the river which connects lakes above and below. The park is on the lake formed north and above the low weir (a low dam with constant flow over the top) that's situated in the middle of town... just across from the pizza place (you knew this was coming, right?!).
Way too much whining about food. We'll do some site seeing tomorrow, then we'll be off on our last leg to Durham, ME where we'll connect with kids and grand kids. Yee haw! It's been 3 years since we last saw them.
