Franconia Notch State Park: Lafayette Campground is a decent rate about 2 miles from the cliff. It is pretty busy though. Going north on 93 and getting off at the next state routes either 18 and 141 both have camping nearby. I feel if you LNT and camp with respect and leave your spot bright and early before being spotted you should be all set. I have been climbing this area for years! By far the best is car camping at a campground with a cooler a grill and lots of good food for multiple days at Cannon.

Simplest and very convenient is the state park CG, Layafette Place, as mentioned. Gettring in on a weekend can be tough. It's also tough to bandit camp within the Stae Park (within Franconia Notch) as it's pretty well patrolled - although you might luck out. If you drive a few miles noth/northeast on Rt 3 towards Twin Mountain - you will enter the White Mountain National Forest. There are some dirt forest service roads off to the right where you can usually find a spot.
