Then of course there is camping in the rain, it
must be admitted, a crimp on everyone's style. Motor homes and
trailers weather it best of course, those in tents more impacted.
But options include card games, books, fires under a canopy anyway,
a day shopping in North Conway, etc.
With the Peabody River Valley the deepest in the
White Mountains and the Presidential Range its own micro-climate,
the comings and goings of rain storms near Dolly Copp can provide
fierce spectacles. Such displays can be enjoyed right at your
campsite. For a beautiful example see the August 2001 photo by
