Great spot if you need easy parking & bathrooms in the summer. In the winter I saw a snowy owl just hanging out on the marsh.

A family friendly beach. Patrolled by state police on horseback- fun for kids to see, also. Clean public bathroom and plenty of beach to spread out

Just 10 minutes south of Hampton, this is a way better beach!! We got here nice and early, about 9am, and the beach was pretty much empty. For $16 for the state park entrance, you get to have a nice and clean beach, climb around the rocks, look at the harbor with the boats coming in and out, play in... More

This is one of my absolute favorite beach to travel to during all times of the year. During the summer, for out of staters it's $16 for the day (which can be cheaper than paying a meter) and for Mass residents its less than that. The beaches are always clean, great to go shelling and walking for fun. You can... More

We stayed here on a weekend in mid May in order to go birdwatching at nearby Plum Island. We had a 15' camper. The staff was friendly; the booking experience was easy; the campsite was clean (and frankly, rather empty at this time of year), as was the men's bathroom. (Don't know about women's bathroom). The location is superb...near all... More

For a small park, this one offers a lot. In summer the tightly packed campground fills up quickly. Pets are allowed on leash but restricted during the summer season to the river side. A boat launch and playground are convenient to the campground and the white sand beach is well guarded. But don't think you are in Florida because the... More

Took a hike on the beach with our dog in April. Nice, white sandy beach that goes on for miles. Close to many dining options, and a short drive to beautiful Newport.
