Will have to think about NH motto: Live FREE or Die
With the money I now have to pay to get a sticker on my cars just so I can park and eat a PBJ sandwich along the side of the road, in the White Mt. National Forest to the fee I gotta pay to go into the woods to cut and drag out my own X-mas tree. I will have my own motto: Live Poor-Die Poorer but have fun Camping - if you can afford it!

For better or worse, NH relies on tourists' $$$. North Conway is a very good example of that - the town lives on tourism, and in my opinion it targets upper-class tourism, if you know what I mean. If the town can help to upgrade the clientele by barring free overnight parking, they see that as a positive thing. Besides, they figure those RVs just look tacky in a town that promotes upper-crust image.
The access sticker to use the forest is a Federal thing, not a State thing, correct? If so, can't blame NH for that one. Same thing with the access pass on Mt. Desert Island so you can use the scenic roads around Cadillac Mountain - it's not Maine but the Feds.
