This state park has a lot going on! It is adjacent to a marine aquarium that is great on a rainy day, but today was beautiful, and so we stuck to the park. There are trails through the broken down walls of an old fort and to a rocky beach with lots of sea life. These trails are moderate and... More

Nice nature trail. Combine it with a visit to the Science Centre. Kids enjoyed collecting pebbles and shells and generally exploring the rocky beach.

They charge $4 per adult. If you go hike it is ok, the coast seems to have better hikes that are free and on the shore in the area. It is really rocky here in this park, on the walk out to the point I could see graffiti in the park on the trails. Outside the science center is whale... More

This is a ocean side park. Great spacious park for hiking, fishing, picnicking, however, the beach looks to be completely covered with erosion control large granite stone so if you were looking to play in the surf or tan on the beach, this isn't the place. I see it in the state beach photos but no luck finding it (on... More

We recently visited the Odiorne Point State Park over the weekend. There is something for the whole family here. The bathroom needed a bit of attention, but I'm hoping it improves after Memorial Day weekend. There are trails, picnic areas and a playground for the kids. You could spend the whole day here. The Seacoast Science Center is also here,... More

We spent a pleasant hour or so at Odiorne Point State Park on a sunny, but windy, early spring day. Several interpretive signs provide information on the park's interesting history. In the early 1600s, English colonists made their first settlement in NH here; jumping ahead a few hundred years, there's World War II history, too, with signs explaining that the... More

We loved to walk our little Min Pin "Ziggy" here when the weather permitted. The path winds along the Piscataqua river that empties to the ocean, and along the rocky beaches. Most of the area is wooded.

We went for a 2 1/2 hour snowshoe on the shore and through the woods, over and under the bunkers. Beautiful views, free parking.

Had a great walk around the park on a nice day with my husband here! Cute little historical facts around the park and plenty of benches to stop, sit, and enjoy the beach.
