Hampton Beach State Park will be undergoing a transformation; I believe the current bathhouse at the entrance to Hampton will be coming down and rebuilt as a formal Visitor's Center. This part of the beach near the jetty is nice and not overcrowded.
ALL the state-owned bldgs (further away from the state park) along the water have been fenced-off and are being demolished as I write this. There'll be new boardwalk, bandstand, bathrooms, walkways, shady areas, parking...etc..
What is still problematic is the opposite side of the street where you can find cheap tattoos, palm-readers , tshirts, knife stores, dirty restaurants...way too tawdry for MANY people who used to remember when ALL of Hampton Beach was clean, safe and family-friendly. If you want to stay in Hampton for overnight, REALLY look into where the place is located because it could be nice or downright dumpy.
