It dropped into the low 40's with 15-25 mph winds the night we stayed there; daytime temps were in the '60s due to a Canadian high pressure system (blame Canada?).

Hey, people. A few of us are exploring the New England States this September starting with the New Hampshire area. Using the Mad Maps with the Zumo, we've decided to 'put up' in the Laconia area as a base camp. We're bringing the toy hauler to camp in and to be honest we're looking for some amenities like a pool and such to relax after the rides. It looks like the KOA at Chocorua is probably the best choice since we don't have any actual experience there. Would anyone in your group have thoughts on the subject? Thanks a bunch.
While I dont have a suggestion where to camp...If you are looking for roads suggestion, places to eat, spots to visit the New England Riders have a whole web site section dedicated to such roads. THIS LINK has a ton of resources for New England. Enjoy your stay and rides up here.

We aren't campers (unless you count motel camping) so can't really help you there. But I know there are some rustic camp grounds right in the White Mountain National Forest. They should be pretty much wide open in September, except maybe on weekends. [edit - Just noticed that you want some amenities at your base camp. Don't think the WMNF is what you'll want]
Have a great trip.
PS - Out of curiosity, why would you want to be near Laconia?

Thanks for the comments. Laconia is claimed to be "motorcycle friendly" and I believe host an event every year. There is a publication that I picked up at the Chicago Motorcycle show they put out to specifically solicit motorcycle riders. Additionally, I use the motorcycling "Mad Maps" for the Zumo and there is a weeks worth of ride loops that converge in Laconia. That area, or close by, would be a good starting point. I would like to try to recreate past trips like when we went to NC, stayed at the Iron Horse, and rode out in a different direction every day, but I think that is not entirely possible.

There are lots of good routes to ride all over the state. I guess the good thing is that Laconia is pretty much in the center and the routes should be readily available from all the years of the Classic.
