My co-worker is going with her family and I want to show her what to expect.

good idea to follow this...not just for yourself but also for the campers who will be there after you

I could never make sense of the actual 13 falls themselves.......just seems like a bunch of random small cascades. Such a remote pretty area.

The campsite looks pretty much the same as of Memorial Day weekend this year. The bear box was moved to the other side of the cooking area.

The name '13 Falls' refers to Logging Camp 13. There site is next to the confluence of Franconia Brook and the upper (North?) branch of the Lincoln Brook. There are some really nice cascades:

This is one of the smaller pools, which you can dive into:
4993

And this one is called "olympic pool" I think by the caretakers. You can jump off of various rocks and actually swim around.
4994

One of my absolute favorite spots in the Whites.
