Re: Crawfords notch campground
I believe that the campground is actually on the Dry River which is larger than the Saco at that point. You should be able to find some either there or downstream. If not head up to the Androscoggin, either between Shelburne and the Maine state line or further up stream toward Errol.(a drive)
Crawford Notch is a very picturesque place to do some hiking. That's what I'd spend my time on.
Excellent views of the Presidential Range from Mt Willey
