Very nice NH state park. Also houses the Seacoast Science Center which is worth a visit. Rocky sea shore with a bit of sand/gravel beach. Great for exploring tide pools, kids catching crabs, etc. A network of trails good for walking or biking. Some beach areas also along Witches Creek and Little Harbor are a short walk from the boat...

Although not too much to do here (kids have play ground area, no swimming) but they have picnic tables so bring your food. We have also used our mountain bikes and did the trails through the woods and around the park.

Great for kids as well as the adults. Lots of interaction and things to keep us all interested. Acquariums filled with sea life as well as whale skeletons. Lovely setting in the state park.

Simple walk along the coast. Very relaxing and easy-going. We walked the trails, but the paths looked great for bikes too.

We visit Ordione often..its an old WW2 fort with safe paved walkways that make a great place to pedal with little ones, the science center is great for kids and the venue is wonderful for weddings...our son was married there a year ago.

This state Park is a fantastic place. Plenty of picnic tables. Trees for shade, and a great view. The rest rooms very clean. A well equipped playground for the kids. No dogs allowed. Sorry spot. A bike path and walking path and trails. Bring boots to explore the rocks at low tide.

The views along the walkway are spectacular; the views of the Isle of Shoals are breathtaking and the little ones love the playground that is there for them. I love scouring the beach area for beach glass and other little treasures. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the many picnic tables! Have fun!

This is one of the best parks I have been to in a while. They have beach areas, a playground, trails, and bathrooms. The only things missing are a snack bar and a dog park. I will probably buy the sticker because I will definitely be returning! It is in the same area as the science center. The science center... More

We brought friends from out of town for a visit. The science center is small but interesting to see with a number of small exhibits of fish, plenty of educational info about the areas marine life. Lots of hands on for the kids. Beautiful grounds with lovely vistas. Playground for children and walking trails as well.
