If you’re looking to take in the natural and architectural beauty of the Newport Cliff Walk, the Melville Ponds Campground is a great place to stay at less than 10 miles away.

Camping in Rhode Island is very much about being near the water. Most places you pitch your tent here probably won’t be far from the ocean, a lake, or a bay. If you’re looking to take in the natural and architectural beauty of the Newport Cliff Walk, the Melville Ponds Campground is a great place to stay at less than 10 miles away. For a weekend of surfing, fishing, and beach camping, stay at Fishermen’s Memorial State Park in Narragansett. Hop on a ferry from Point Judith to explore the Block Island’s beautiful bluffs and beaches. Keep in mind that camping is not permitted on Block Island, but it’s still a great day trip destination. For woodland adventures, try hiking or mountain biking at George Washington State Management Area or Big River Management Area. Well suited for everything from family trips to solo adventures, Rhode Island welcomes all with open arms (and waves)!
