lived in Rhode Island and came here about 15 years ago as a young adult with friends. I tent camped there in May 2007.
Describe your camping trip:
Beautifully set on a large area of all diffent sorts, whether you like woods or beach (a little more crowded area) or even fishing, or if you want to be next to the facilities or the store, which has everything in it nominally priced too.
Pros: Stayed near the beach area and had fabulous neighbors. There was a playground for the kids within walking distance. We could get our own wood from the surroundings alone, as long as it was still daylight.
Cons: There was no soap in the bathroom, but no campgrounds have this anyway. Just because the facilities are clean doesn't mean you are not still camping. If coming in at night for the first night setup, good luck. You might want to just grab yourself the available ranger then. You cannot see anything, I don't care how good your headlights are. The signs are all in dark and are not even visible at night in any sort of way. I got a park ranger after driving around for a long time, and she drove me right to my site. Then she even helped with her headlights for me to set up the tent quickly.
Nearby attractions: Misquamicut Beach, Watch Hill, that was devastated by the Hurrioane of 1938 as well as a lot of the East Coast, but this area, as peaceful and beautiful as it is, almost has an eery feeling, no kidding.
Have a good time here. It's a non-drinking place, mind you. Just don't make it known and I find you and your camping partners will find that you can, as long as it is not a noticible problem or annoyance. This is, after all, family camping.
