The best camping near Newport State Park guide

Overview

About

Hang by the windy waters of Newport State Park. While there’s no official boat launch, nothing but your own perseverance is stopping you from taking out the canoe or kayak. It can get windy on the water, so I would leave the floppy hats at home! Explore the 30 miles of foot and bike trails, fish for a bit, and end the day with a picnic before you reluctantly head back to the real world. Winter brings trails for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and skate skiing, so don’t think you won’t be back once the weather takes a turn... for the better?

When to go

The best time to visit Newport State Park is during the warmer months, from late spring to early fall, when the trails are accessible and the night skies are clear for stargazing. Winter can be harsh, with limited access and activities due to snow and ice.

Know before you go

  • Ensure your vehicle has a valid admission sticker before entering the park.
  • Check the property notices for any updates on closures or conditions.
  • Prepare for limited amenities; pack essentials and leave no trash behind.
  • Respect the park's hours, open from 6am to 11pm year-round.
  • For stargazing, plan your visit around the new moon for the darkest skies.
