We drove in to take a look at the Salisbury Beach State Reservation. There seemed to be ample paring and there is also parking for RV's camp sites. What a great Park for this area, with Sand dunes and the ocean!

We'll be back...the beach was so beautiful and only a few footsteps away from our camper! Clean restrooms, spacious sites, full electric and water. No sewer, but great dump station facilities for 4 campers at a time.

Trash everywhere and staff drives right by it. Grass needs mowing fire pits need to be cleaned of ash and trash. Brand new bathrooms and the family rooms are out of order already. Dump station has no hose hookup to rinse tanks. Unfriendly people

This is our second time coming here and it’s a great place to camp, bike and enjoy the ocean! The campsites are not shady but are very clean. The restrooms are kept clean by host campers and the beach is just a short walk away!

Clean, managed and maintained beautiful natural beach. Soft sand and boardwalks over protected dunes. Clean bathrooms and shower facilities. Note: dogs not allowed on ocean beach but are allowed all year on river side beach attached to ocean beach.

$20 to park here is quite expensive, Hampton Beach State Park is $15. But the water temps were hovering just below 70 on this hot July day and we enjoyed the waves and our family time. Boys enjoy the jetty area especially.
