Drive into this park then along Narragansett Bay and find your special spot. Sit on a bench with binoculars to scan to water and coastline. Or select a picnic table to eat at. There are restrooms in this area, charcoal grills. Continue driving the loop past a quaint chapel and on to a cove area where people dig for quahogs.... More

Beautiful place to go for a walk, listen to the sound of the waves or watch the sun set. Great for a romantic stroll along the water.

This place is a great choice for family gatherings, fishing, launching a boat (no fee). Expansive open field lend themselves to flying kites or maybe even a drone! Plenty of trails and paths that lead to secluded areas of the park and to the rocky beaches.

This park is a great way to experience a family retreat with a waterfront view! It is a very large park and allows everyone to have their own space and includes grills, walking paths and picnic tables. You need to go here if you are close. It's also nice for a drive next to the water for a quick getaway.

Colt state park is such a great place in the spring, fall and winter. Summer time its full of riffraff who dont care about how loud they are or if they are dropping F bombs around other peoples kids. If you want to go during the summer just stay away from the beach and stay around the beautiful grassy play... More
