About This Location

Nestled in the lovely town of Campton, New Hampshire, Campton Falls, sometimes known as Beebe River Falls, stands as a powerful, accessible, and alluring waterfall on the Beebe River. This natural wonder is a prime illustration of a block-type waterfall, boasting a formidable drop of approximately 28 feet and spanning a width of around 60 feet.

Campton Falls reveals its most breathtaking and robust flow during the spring months when the melting snow from the surrounding landscape converges into the Beebe River, and also following heavy rainstorms. However, the Beebe River maintains a fairly strong water flow throughout the year, making it a worthwhile destination regardless of the season. Autumn, in particular, offers an additional layer of enchantment as the waterfall is surrounded by vibrant foliage.

What sets Campton Falls apart, aside from its natural splendor, is its remarkable accessibility. Visitors can conveniently park their vehicles alongside Route 175, near the beginning of Perch Pond Road. Although the parking area might not be prominently marked, an unassuming dirt area can accommodate 4-5 cars. The journey to the waterfall is a breeze, situated just about 100 feet from the parking area. However, it's worth noting that the trail to the falls is steep and narrow, so cautious footing is essential when descending to the base of the waterfall. While dogs are technically allowed, the narrow trail might not be the most accommodating for our four-legged friends, so it's advisable to exercise judgment when bringing them along.

What truly sets Campton Falls apart is its ability to evoke a sense of rugged seclusion, despite its proximity to the road, making it a hidden gem among New Hampshire's natural treasures. While it may not be as widely discussed as some of its counterparts, it undoubtedly offers a captivating experience for those who venture to discover it, beckoning with its raw beauty and untamed allure.
