Hampton Beach State Park (South) Lottery

The lottery is now closed. You should receive a phone call and letter. Emails have already gone out and the reservations can be seen in your ReserveAmerica account.

The Hampton Beach Campsite Lottery will be taking place again at Hampton Beach State Park (South). This program, in preparation for the 2023 camping season, provides a greater opportunity for campers to experience our most popular camping areas.

A lottery system provides a fair distribution process and ensures equal access to the recreation facility. Many of these opportunities are in such high demand that access is limited to prevent damage to the natural landscape, as well as to preserve the visitor experience.
