Camping Reservations

Rhode Island DEM's Divison of Parks and Recreation manages 8,200 acres of land, including parks, beaches, campgrounds, bike paths, historic sites, picnic areas, trails, athletic fields, and fishing access. Our state's 400 miles of coastline, serene forests, and spectacular ocean views, draw in-state and non-resident visitors alike. Fun and affordable, you can choose from campsites tucked into the woods or just a stone’s throw from the shore.


All campsites, cabins and pavilions/shelters are CLOSED through at least June 15. All visitors with reservations will be issued a full refund. We ask for your patience as refunds are processed. Rhode Island has suspended all new camping reservations for the 2020 season until further notice. We are assessing campground and pavilion status daily. Thank you for your patience as we work to protect the safety of our visitors and staff.
