It was really fun being there. Just relax and having a good time. Says Anonymous

My husband, daughter and I recently spent a night at Jigger Johnson Campground while we were hiking in the White mountains. The tent site we chose was cozy, comfortable and clean, and best of all, the place had showers: individual sheds w/spacious shower rooms, separate tiled dressing rooms with hooks
 
    and a chair to keep clothes dry. At six minutes for $2.00, water was hot, w/nice pressure. Altogether, as satisfying an experience as possible for two citified ladies and more than adequate for a dad who bicycles to work, backpacks
 in the wilderness & does not consider car camping roughing it. He only looks for flush toilets (which this spot also has, very clean, too) and other amenities when we are along. To him, facilities here luxurious.It was more peaceful than Dollycopp (sp) which is much larger & often hosts (albeit unintentionally) rowdy young weekenders who build bonfires and yell all night, warbling Rocky Mountain High offkey & then sleep all morning, when others get up to start  
    hiking. I suspect they plan to climb Mt. Washington in their SUV's. Anyway, the atmosphere at JJ was much more family-oriented, and tents-only sites just what we were looking for. Does anyone know who the origin of the name, Jigger
  Johnson?When we were there, I left a treasured book behind by mistake, on a picnic bench at the campsite, I believe. It was a hardbound copy of Carl Sandburg poetry. If anyone found it, I would love to have it back...would gladly pay for postage. Address: 45 Lawton Road, Shirley, Ma. Tel:978-425-9848. Says M.E.Jones

I went to jigger johnson campground from the ages of 10-17. I love it up there. I used to go with my buddies family. I am in the military now and when I get out I plan on taking my fiance up there.
 
Its a great place to relax and just chill out. Its the most peaceful and friendly environment imaginable. Says Jeffrey Tudisca

I've gone to Jigger Johnson several times with my family and never had a problem. I was really excited to take my friends with me this year since it was going to be a couple of our last year in college. As soon as we arrived we had the Campsite Manager threaten us about quite hours and said that we ''were already on people's bad side.'' At around 10 o'clock at night we started to end our night and was just talking around the fire when she came back and told us we were being to loud and that quite hours started at 10. She then threaten to call the sheriff on us and that if we were not 21 that they would take us away (which we all were). After she left we all got in our tents and were surprised when heard someone on out campsite, the Sheriff, coming to check in on us. I have never been so disrespected and discriminated against because of my age in my life. If you are in your 20's, you shouldn't go to this campsite because you will probably be judged the first five minutes you are there. Says Jilene (Sun, 27 Sep 2009)
