Odiorne Point State Park offers one of the most beautiful natural settings along New Hampshire’s 18-mile coastline. Within the 135-acre seaside park, visitors can enjoy a wooded picnic grove, grassy fields, a playground and miles of walking trails, many of which are handicapped accessible.
While the park is an ideal location for seaside outdoor recreation, the property is also renowned for its rich social history and seven distinct habitats that can be visited within an hour’s walk. Although the spectacular rocky shore is the one of the most notable, the woodlands, uplands, salt marsh, freshwater and salt ponds, and sandy beach (non-swimming) combine to create one of the region’s most diverse nature walks.
The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation operates the park; the Center provides educational experiences at Odiorne Point State Park on behalf of New Hampshire State Parks.
