Staffing Dates for AMC Backcountry Campsites

When can I find a caretaker at an AMC Backcountry Site?

Our 14 White Mountain and Mahoosuc campsites are open to the public year round, including access to shelters, platforms, and toilets.

We staff 9 campsites on a staggered schedule, with our popular sites (Liberty, Garfield, Guyot, Nauman) staffed starting on Memorial Day weekend, and with our other sites opening up throughout June. There is similar de-staffing schedule, starting on Labor Day weekend and tapering off throughout September and October.

Please review the following dates for when we staff sites with caretakers, so you can plan your trip accordingly. While a caretaker is on-site, we will charge the $10 fee.

As a reminder, if you are traveling in a large group (6 or more people), please use our Group Notification System to let us know of your plans.
