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.

The science center there is a great visit. Good even on a sunny day but a rainy day with 4 grandchildren with loads of energy it becomes a great place!

Very nice state park with easily accessible trails through the woods and along the coast. We found interesting stone ruins of buildings and roads. Trails are nicely maintained for easy hiking (at least in the areas we explored). Nice views of the water. There is also a science center here, although we didn't go in.

When I saw that there was an ocean-side state park just an hour from me in New Hampshire, I had to go and check it out. Simply put: I was not disappointed at all. I don't think I can sum up everything this park has to offer. Fantastic ocean views, bike trail, plenty of hiking trails, beach walks, sandy beaches,... More

This State Park has 135 acres of the most gorgeous scenery! There are places to picnic, walk, sit and watch the sailboats, or explore the old military and historical sites, woodlands, tidepools, freshwater and salt ponds, and rocky sandy beach. Also on the Park grounds is the Seacoast Science Center, an educational marine life facility which is also enjoyable. I... More

Odiorne Point State Park is a great place to visit if you are a history buff or "into" Marine Science. The Park itself is beautiful and has a playground and picnic tables near the ocean and the tide pool, and the Science Center has excellent activities for children and adults and a well organized display of the history of the...

I discovered Odiorne Point years ago, when it was home to a couple of letterboxes. After that, I was hooked. It's a surprising park with a wide range of activities for anyone who loves the outdoors. It's the perfect spot for a picnic on a hot day, because -- since it's on a point that extends into the ocean --... More
