Kingston State Park
Kingston State Park is only 14 miles from the New Hampshire seacoast and is close to many attractions such as Canobie Lake Park, The Fox Run Mall, various antique shops, and fine restaurants. The park is 44 acres in size and includes fireplaces and picnic areas, a playground, softball field, and three game areas for horseshoes, volleyball and we now have canoe rentals. One bathhouse with dressing rooms and flush toilets are available for the 300 feet of swim area, with an extra 100 feet of tree line frontage. Alcohol is not permitted and is strictly enforced, violators will be asked to leave the park and will receive no refund. Kingston State Park accepts reservations for business parties, wedding receptions, kids groups, family functions, and other general gatherings.
NOTICE: Due to the popularity of Kingston State Park's beach area on nice weekends and holidays, the beach will most likely sell-out in the morning hours. Once the beach area reaches capacity additional beach goers cannot be admitted due to safety concerns.
