Charlestown Breachway

This beach is stunning.  There are wild rose bushes along the shore, and turquoise blue water.  There is a river canal running to the ocean which is fun to watch, and the beach is huge.  There isn’t that much parking at the state park, but there is a town beach with parking that you’ll see […]

Scarborough Beach State Park

This is a beautiful park with a huge beach and open swimming.  The facilities are picturesque and well maintained.  There are actually two beaches right next to each other, with separate parking areas. One of the nicest parks we’ve seen, but we were here during the week, and judging by the amount of parking it is […]

Ninigret Park

This is a large park, with a lot of interesting features.  They have a fenced in dog park, space observatory, swimming, fishing, playing fields, a nature center, and a wildlife preserve with trails.  Apparently this used to be an airport which was given to the parks department, and they are letting some parts of it get […]

Narragansett Town Beach

The parking lot was full, so we shot this location from afar.  We were here at 11am on a Monday and you can see how crowded it is already. This is a very popular beach, and they have large parking lots and a lot of in town parking, but it is pretty hectic.  It seems […]

Hopeville Pond State Park

They have a medium swimming area with a sand beach, and there are some shaded picnic areas as well.  The beach was fairly crowded for 4pm on Monday, so it is likely a popular area. There wasn’t a fee when we were here, but there may be at certain times.  Dogs are allowed on the […]

Dogs are allowed in the park but not on the beach.  There is […]

Quaddick State Park

There is a large swimming area, with clear water and a sand beach. We were here on Father’s Day so it was very crowded, but that may not always be the case.  There are shaded picnic spots, and dogs are allowed in the grassy areas. http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2716&q=325252&deepNav_GID=1650

This is a large park with multiple activities to explore, including kayak rentals, playing fields, and fishing.  There is a jogging/walking trail going around the whole lake, which is a great feature.
