Wonderful weather for February so we headed to the seashore. Odiorne Point State Park is beautiful. There is no fee during the off season but no facilities either. This is a great place to walk around. There are many trails to choose from. There are plenty of picnic tables and benches to sit on and enjoy the scenery so bring... More

It had been nearly 20 years since i saw the ocean. I did not have to pay for day use as the park activities were closed for the season. Not a whole lot to say about this state park. Very pretty. I noticed they had playground equipment, so great for kids. This is the quintessential new england beach---with the beautiful... More

beautiful park surrounded by the ocean. Walking and biking paths, picnic tables, playgrounds. The Seacoast Science Center is located here and offers a very mini version of the Boston Aquarium...small, yet top notch. Summer time offers Music-by-the- Sea every other Thursday night. So fun.

We were traveling and stopped to see the coastline. There wasn't much there to see, but we enjoyed the raw natural shore.

We visited Odiorne on a Sunday morning after flying into Manchester on our way to Ogunquit, Maine. It was a chilly, windy, drizzly day, but the park was still gorgeous and well worth the chill! We enjoyed the views, walked the bath along the shore to the beach and the rock jetty beyond. The marshes were fascinating and the entire... More

Terrific outdoor walking trails along the seacoast and through the old bunkers of WWII. Always something new to see and experience while taking in the fresh sea air.

There is a little bit for everyone here. Nice wooded paths, small beaches, marshes, rocky coast, and historical military structures. I think I could visit every day and not tire of this beautiful park. However, bring bug repellent or you won't be able to spend much time in the woods. My family got eaten alive every time we headed away... More

Nice park with loads of trails. The shore is rocky so not really a place to build sand castles or swim. Nice large play ground for the kids. Coming at low tide will allow for some tidal pool exploring. There are some historical signs and old gun emplacements from when it was a fort during WW II but they are... More

We stopped here on a tip from a friend, not knowing what to expect, and were pleasantly surprised. The kids, ages 4 and 6, had a blast collecting rocks and shells. There's not enough of a sandy beach to really lay out a blanket, but there were a few families who did so. The kids also enjoyed exploring the fort... More
