Burlingame State Park

Burlingame State Park
Charlestown, RI

With over 700 family sites, the campground is huge. The camp office is open 24 hours (I've never seen that before), but the sites are expensive--$20/night for non-residents. The rules are six people and three cars maximum on a site. Each car after the first costs an extra $6. Check-out time is 11 A.M., although the rangers were not strict about it.

There are bathrooms with hot showers (25 cents for two minutes). There are pumps scattered around the campsites for water and a camp store at which you can buy supplies. There is a small lake (or is it a pond?), but the ocean is much nicer. The ocean is about a mile from the park, an easy walk or drive.

Driving directions: Take Interstate 95 North to exit 92 in Connecticut. At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn right onto Connecticut Route 2. After 2.5 miles, turn right onto Connecticut Route 78 East. Follow 78 East until it ends, and then turn left onto U.S. Route 1 North (also known as Post Road). After 6 miles look for the entrance to Burlingame State Park
