Love this park. Picnic tables, playground, walking paths, and the Seacoast Science Center on property too! A lot to do in a little spot.

We greatly enjoyed our time there. Nice walking shaded walking trails along the shoreline with beautiful ocean views. We skipped the science center as they wanted another $7/pp to get in (rip off) which was the only downside. We will definitely return. Its a hidden gem.

What a great park, tucked away, right next to the ocean. The husband and I got married here in January. There is a small gazebo right by the water where we had a private ceremony. It will always have a special place in my heart. There isn't a fee to get in the winter, however if you visit in the... More

I could say so many nice things about this place but then the world would know how great it is and then it would be crowded :) you'll have to find out for yourself...go

With so much attention going to the White Mountains, it's easy to neglect New Hampshire's 18-mile-long coastline. This State Park has it all - scenery, history, science, picnic spots and a large playground area with nearby restrooms. There are lots of nooks and crannies to discover along the rocky shore, as well as World War II-era bunkers to remind us... More

Odiorne Point State Park is an outstanding park to enjoy all that nature has to offer along the New Hampshire seacoast. A great place for walks, photography and picnics for young and old. Highly recommend.

Odiorne State Park includes the Seacoast Science Center. The Science Center doesn't really have much going on. You'll see everything in it in under 30 minutes. If you have little kids do it once. They'll have a little fun and then you can enjoy the rest of the park. The park itself is very nice. There are playgrounds, lawns for... More

My husband and I hiked a trail around the state park on a very windy, chilly November day. The views of Portsmouth were lovely. Along the way there were some amazing rock outcroppings along the shore. There were photographers and other hikers enjoying the scenery as well. A pleasant surprise was a museum at the point. This museum is extremely... More

Park offers some very pretty, winding trails next to the shore (appx 2mi all the way around). You can walk quite a ways down the rock and shell covered beach. While you cannot remove anything, including shells, from the park it certainly does give you lots to look at. Great for exercise and perfect during the Fall. There are some... More

My favorite thing is to bike ride here as the trails range for any level and change from wooded to ocean to park views. It's a pretty place for a picnic with stone walls and curving walkways. I've seen a doe with its fawn in the woods, and snow shoeing in winter is very peaceful. A beautiful setting for weddings.... More
