Activities and Amenities

Located in Southeastern NH, Kingston State Park is a 44 acre park located on Kingston Pond/Great Pond. It is a quick drive from the seacoast and Boston. This park offers boat rentals, a park store (Friday-Sunday only), a small walk around the pond and a clean beach for swimming and picnicking. There are fireplaces and picnic tables located in the beach area, which also has a playground, softball field, and three game areas for horseshoes. Kingston State Park has two bathhouses located on both sides of the beach; one by the Park Office and one by the Park Store.

Notices:

  • Alcohol or smoking is not permitted in the park and is strictly enforced, violators will be asked to leave the park and will receive no refund.
  • 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
