Our first time visiting during the off season. Found the campground only 1/3 full, a nice change from the peak summer months. We had no problem with our hookups. Typical beach area camping; place flat with little shade. Camp sites are grid style and on the small side. Bathrooms and showers were just so-so. No Wi-Fi, but good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Campground offers two beaches, kayaking, fishing and only 40 minutes drive to southern ME attractions. At $26 per night we find this campground a good valve. Would return again. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Worse check-in experience ever. We pulled into campground driveway and waited a little over an hour to get to the office to check in. They were unbelievably slow checking in the incoming units and they let some people who ignored the line go ahead of the long line of us who were patiently waiting. Beware the need for your pet's vaccination records. I don't think that is a bad thing, but they will not process your site assignment until you can present it. We changed site after a couple of days in order to lengthen our stay and had to go back to our RV to re-supply them with the records again even though they had the record info in their computer. Also, pets cannot be left alone in RV, so you need to make boarding arrangements for them when you are out sightseeing. This is due to the fear that there might be a power outage and since the sites sit in the open blazing sun, your pets ay not survive the outage. Sites okay - angled back ins with fairly sandy ground if you do not line up correctly. Streets are suppose to be one way, but it was not enforced causing a few issues with rigs trying to back in and cars zipping in and out. Dump station was a two lane station, so although it was busy on the way out, it was not too bad. However, there is not a pipe to stick your sewer fitting into as there is just an open drain slot to ay your sewer hose by. Beach is accessible from park by walking to day area to get around seawall that protects the river inlet. No swimming is allowed on riverside. You need to be on the oceanside to swim which is accessible in day area. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Although the sites are a little close for our liking, we really enjoyed staying here. It's a great, affordable location for going to the beach, with reasonable drives to Hampton Beach and Kittery Outlets. If you go to the outlets, eat at Robert's Maine Grill, it was amazing! Back to the campsite; as others have said, the faucet is way to the back of the site, so you'll have to use two 25-foot hoses. The campground is very pet friendly, with doggy doo stations here and there where you can pick up bags and drop off used ones. There is no alcohol allowed on the campground, but you do see many people drinking out of big plastic cups...Beaches are beautiful, but the ocean is very cold. They had dump station problems while we were there, but came up with a work-around within a couple of days and gave us a discount, so we were satisfied. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park. The sites are large and well separated, but the utility hook-ups are far in the rear of the sites. Our electric cable barely reached and we had to use two 25' hoses. The restrooms are the largest I've seen. Plenty of shower stalls. No Wi-Fi but T-Mobile works. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Location is fantastic. Easy access to ocean and river beach. Sites are well laid out and hookups are more than adequate. Pedestals are to the rear of the sites and are quite far back. We needed to use two 25' hoses. This an excellent location to explore Salisbury and Newburyport, MA as well as Hampton Beach, NH. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We've camped here the past few years, always in September. The trailer sites were all full the weekend we were here. The location is perfect. It's where the river meets the sea. Flat roads, small sites with concrete pads, fire rings, and charcoal grills. Very pet friendly. The store is small, dingy, and not well stocked but does have firewood, which you may not bring in. The playground is great. We'll be back next year. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our third year in a row here. It is an absolute bargain if you want to be at the beach. Legitimately walkable. The very end of the Merrimack river ends here, and prior to the ocean beach you have a beautiful river beach with plenty of sand. This is a great place for easy biking as the roads are tarred and dead flat. My wife was kicking herself that she didn't take her bike, but I and the little ones brought ours! We camped in a 17' Hybrid Trailer. I gave this place an 8 instead of a 10 because there is no shade (you are at the beach) and there are virtually no activities; although there are some nature programs and plenty of boating and fishing right here at the park, and nice playground for the little ones. Also there is plenty to do in Salisbury, Hampton Beach is about 10 miles to the north and Newburyport is 10 miles to the South! We camped with two adults and two children ages 6 & 7. We love this place and will be back again next year!!! We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Typical beach area camping; place flat with little shade. Camp sites are grid style and on the small side. Our site hookups were okay. Noticed place very crowded with lots of extra cars, boats with trailers, tents, and people, but found everyone very respectful. Was here 4 yrs ago and again I had checked off that the bathrooms and showers were clean, but to be honest I’ve seen better. Price per night makes this place a good value, would certainly return again. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

3 Days of beautiful weather, but we love this campground for the level sites, clean area, next to the beach. Friendly staff at the gate close to major beaches in New Hampshire, need reservation way in advance. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

It is a very tired looking place. When we were there only one washroom building open. It is ideal for the July August crowds who just need the essentials! We will not be going back. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We come back here as often as we can. The ocean breezes reach most all the sites and the views of both the ocean and river are wonderful. It's a great, level place to walk and ride your bikes for great distances with beautiful views. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We like the State facilities because of the price and usually situated on some prime real estate. If you like the ocean, can't beat this place for convenience. In spite of all the sites (100's), we've been lucky to usually have decent neighbors. Each row has management or host campers so things don't get out of hand. It's older and has some limitations but I go for the beach. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Great beach accessible campground near the delightful town of Newburyport, MA. We had some difficulty with a blown electrical outlet, but the electrician came out on a Sunday and fixed it. Otherwise, our stay was quiet and uneventful. If you like geocaching, there a couple of caches in the area. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Campground is maintained by the state; all sites are level and provided with a pad for RV's. The area is policed by staff and state police on horses. Drinking is controlled as well as other contraband. Access to the beach is great as well as access to a boat launch. Drawback is the campground does not have any full hookups, however, there are pump out services as well as an onsite dump station. This campground is convenient to Salisbury center, Newburyport and its fine restaurants, and Hamptonbeach, NH. We camped at Salisbury Beach State Park in a Motorhome.
