Visiting Hampton is a great way to spend a morning, afternoon, or the entire day. In fact we have so much to see and do that we encourage visitors to return, and return often. The 63 acres of the park are open to pedestrian access from dawn to dusk, seven days a week. We recommend that you plan to spend at least 2 hours on site, but you are more than welcome to stay longer. Our Plan Your Visit page has all the information you need to make sure you have a great experience!
