Great beach and very small September crowds

We came in September and the weather was beautiful and the crowds were nowhere to be seen. Took a walk out on the jetty and that gives you great views of the beach

Love this beach! I have been coming to this beach since i was a kid and boy has it changed over the years for the better! The beach itself is one of the most beautiful with some great restaurants!

Excellent location to the beach strip Hampton beach is a fun spot. The campgrounds overflow is where we parked. 30 bucks covers a spot. No frills just a secure easy dry camp chalk lined space on flat turf. Can run quiet gen set to charge battery's morning noon and evening at set hours. Fair enough !

There are not enough words to describe how much my wife and I love Hampton Beach. I have been going to Hampton since I was a kid living in Mass. Great memories over the years. This trip was amazing.

I was surprised at how cold the water was in early August. But it is pure Atlantic Ocean. I was glad to get back to the warmer saltwater in New Brunswick, Canada. Great beach area and strip on 1st Avenue.

Hampton Beach State Park is a one of a kind experience in every way, for the good, the bad and the ugly. There are beautiful ocean views along the beach wall. There is every kind of restaurant, arcade and shop from hot dog stands to fine dining to convenience stores to bars to tattoo parlors to casinos and tee shirt... More

This is one of our favorite beaches to visit. They take good care of the sand/beach area. Beach is quite large. You can view it anytime on "Hampton beach earth cam". Never any problems there and no litter.
