“3,100 acres of rocky woodland that surrounds Watchaug Pond”
The entrance to Burlingame State Park picnic area and the Kimball Sanctuary is Prosser Trail, an exit off US Route 1 in Charlestown, RI. This very popular state recreation area offers 50 fireplaces, toilets, drinking water, a swimming beach and a nearby DEM boat launch for boating and fishing. The campground is 3,100 acres of rocky woodland that surrounds Watchaug Pond in Charlestown. The entrance to the park headquarters and camping area is off U.S. Route #1 in Charlestown. This campground may fill on some summer weekends.
We visited in early November. Only 1 lady walking her dog was in the park besides a park worker raking leaves. There was no fee to enter. There were a lot of leaves down, which made for a pretty drive. I may return if in the area again.
Some really great trails and hiking in this park! Easy turn offs on the side of the road where you can park and begin a trail!
Sites are basically on top of each other, and not very clean. Quite hours as far as I can tell are not enforced in any way, could hear people arguing and teens screaming way after quiet hours. They don't allow in any outside firewood, and charge $6 a bundle for basically one huge slab of wood and shingles that are damp. Bathrooms are gross, and some are broken. The only thing it has going it for it is its location.
Very organized at entry. 24 hour attendants. Got a good spot near the water.
