    Grafton Notch loop crowds?

    I would like to backpack the eastern portion of the Grafton Loop trail. Possibly on Labor Day weekend. Has anyone camped at the campsites recently? Do the tent sites fill up on weekends? i assume everywhere will be possibly crowded on Labor Day weekend. But on non-holiday weekends, is the loop popular?

    I've only seen a few people on the times I've hiking the GNLT. I wouldn't worry about the campsites filling up. You will probably only see one or two groups the entire weekend.

    I had a different experience and ended up camping in overflow both nights of the trip on a random fall weekend.

    Were you camping on the eastern part of the loop? The Town Corner campsite is probably where I want to go.

    I've never stopped at Town Corner to spend the night. Only for lunch. The Logistics don't work for my hiking speed. It is the nicest of the campsites, in my opinion. Wide open.
