Salisbury Beach state reservation overlooks the point at which the Merrimack River feeds the Atlantic Ocean. It's a great place to swim, boat, or camp. Salisbury Beach offers 484 campsites for tents, trailers, or R.V.
This affordable dog friendly campground can accommodate large RVs and small tents. It has water and electric hookups. There are three bath houses that offer free hot showers.
This Campground is almost like a desert, minimal shade hot, hot hot in the sun! You are sandwiched between the Big Beach (which is where you wanna be) merrimack river and marsh. I recommend you do a drive thru and create a map of the sites you want before you book! Some sites are awesome for hammocks and actually have shade while others are just open sites and hot hot hot! Although there is a nice breeze that always seems to be flowing (love this!) Bathhouses are questionable.. they have a big beautiful bath house but it has been "under construction" for way to long! So they have porta pottys set up outside! lol Other Bath houses have ok bathrooms and showers. DOGS! You are allowed to have dogs here which is one of the best reasons to stay! You can bring them over to the merrimack side and swim with them!! Who can beat that! The big beach is a bit of a walk from the camp ground.. I would recommend driving over or riding your bikes! Salisbury beach is great! Low tide is calm and great for walking and little kids, high tide is fun for boogy boarding and jumping waves! Overall relaxing beach camping if you have a dog and are not looking for any resort camping frills..
I don’t really consider this location as actually camping. It’s a great place to bring the kids and do beach things all day. Great Spring Striper fishing. Lots of local restaurants and the center of town is super close. We’ve camped for just fishing/beach and also camped to void driving after a summer concert in town. The sites fill up fast and there isn’t much shade. Summer has fireworks and projection screen movies. Free water for bathhouses. Awful mirrors. Like, bring your own.
It it gets windy too.
This campground is directly on the Salisbury beach. Its a pretty sweet place for families. When we arrived it was raining so there was hardly anyone here. They have shower bathrooms and some other amenities.
If your looking to party this probably isn't the place. Although it was raining, cold, and hardly anyone here they asked us to quiet down when it got later. Quiet hours are very common but when theres no one at the camp because of not so hot weather and they still complain about noise shhhhh. Its still understandable i suppose.
A short walk or drive from the reservation is the center of town. Its an old arcade pier style beach town. There is surfing, striped bass fishing, arcades, ice cream, go carts, just about everything for the kids.
