Slang shorthand for the campgrounds surrounding Franconia, New Hampshire, specifically Franconia Notch. Located in northern New Hampshire, in the White Mountains, The Notch is a decent place to stay for a weekend of camping and fishing. Plenty of streams nearby on Route 93 and each camp ground has a decent amount of privacy. Aggressive squirrels abound.
Zack was surprised that we had skewered fluffy, but what did he expect? This was the notch, after all.
