Hampton is a small Canadian rural community located in southwestern Queens County, Prince Edward Island.

Situated immediately east of Crapaud in the township of Lot 29, Hampton functions as a small highway service centre, with gas stations and convenience store.

The area was named in 1865 by Mrs. James MacPhail, who came from New Brunswick, possibly Hampton in Kings County. The community had its own post office between 1875-1968. It was established as a civic address community in 2000.
