Big Intervale Campground is a small campground located on the bank of the Aspy River. With only 10 tent sites, it’s a good spot to pull over and camp on your way around the Cabot Trail, especially if it’s late in the day and you don’t want to travel over the mountains after dark. No potable water on site.
