Our favorite place to visit for a walk along the rocks, check out the tide pools and relax! Lots of paths, on the beach and through the wooded area. Great place to take photos. We love to go off season. It's quiet and tranquil.

Beautiful views. Nice hiking trails along the rocky shoreline. Could cross country ski there after a fresh snowfall but the trails get packed down by foot traffic pretty quickly.

Seacoast Discovery Center has a hanging whale skeleton, multiple tanks with interesting fish, a great educational center! This was the earliest settled spot in NH (before Strawbery Banke), now it's a large promontory with the SDC, earliest graveyard in the state, and gigantic gun emplacements from WWII.

Odiorne Point State Park has an Atlantic shoreline, but its beach area isn't the park's highlight. Trails for walking and biking wind throughout the property. There's a playground and picnic area. There are woods and fields in the park between the ocean and Route 1-A, providing some fine birding opportunities. I've never brought a kayak here, but the boat launch... More

I enjoyed this park. My only complaint would be the visitors who had no where to put their doggy bags and just left them on the trails because it would simply be too inconvenient to carry them home I guess.

During my short visit at a less then optimal time of day, I was inspired by three things: - What appeared to be a lighthouse across the water and the colorful fall... More
