We only used to launch our kayaks and never visited the beach. But there were lots of people who used the extensive parking lots to hit the beach, have picnics, launch there motor boats, etc. Fees are around $15 to use the reservation for day.

Forgotten jewel being so close top NH/Maine options. Food and drink and games are nothing special but do the job when paired with a beautiful beach!!

This is a great place to visit on either the ocean side or the river side (though the ocean side has more waves). Take your shoes off, walk the sand, and enjoy the beach.

Nice sandy beach with easy access to the state campground. It has a jetty for climbing, fishing and walking. It affords great views of Hampton and Newburyport harbor.

This state park was a pleasant surprise. I expected a massive parking lot on a sandy windswept beach and, since I was there Labor Day weekend, more than a few rowdy parties. In fact, it is grassy between campsites, there are some rather large trees...More
