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

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

My wife and I had a very beautiful four mile hike with wonderful views. The ground is mostly flat although it is not paved. We had a great time.

This was a small park with good ocean views, easy paths, and a playground. It was a good place to get out and stretch and move. I recommend this place for families with young children. Nice playground and tables. The views are pretty and it clean.
