Rhode Island (RI) camping is centered around coastal and beach camping along the Atlantic coastline.
The majority of Rhode Island is flat with no real mountains present, which means campers turn toward the large coastline to fulfill their camping needs. Head south and camp along Rhode Island's popular shoreline, and experience beach camping at its best. Pristine beaches and coastal forests feel secluded within Rhode Island's many parks, which offer plenty of places to camp.
The bays and inlets offer plenty of camping as well, like the famous Narragansett Bay, which harbors more than 30 islands, some of which are available for island camping. Set up a campfire on the coast and enjoy the scenic beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. If you're headed inland, lake camping is very popular too! Campgrounds, both private and state-run, offer RV and camper sites as well as basic tent sites, and amenities such as swimming pools, children's playgrounds, and running water. Don't forget to look for camping opportunities around cities like Providence and Newport as well!
