Blackberry Crossing Campground – Albany NH

Description

The current campground was once the site of the Swift River CCC camp #1177 built 6/19/1935.

The nearby Conway Library notes an art exhibit by CCC members in 1936:

“Blackberry Crossing is unique in that is was a CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) Camp during the 1930’s. There is a self-guided tour of the old camp within the campground. The campground has 26 sites that are available on a first come, first served basis. There are hand pumps for water and vault toilets. A short walk from the campground is the Albany Covered Bridge, The Nanamocomuck Ski Trail, and the Boulder Loop hiking trail.”
