After, visiting another attraction in the area, we had plans to stop by Ninigret to do a bit of walking. However, it seemed as if every square inch of non-parking lot real estate was in use! The fields were packed with visitors, games, soccer matches,...More

This is an awesome place to hike. I am an avid hiker and it is peaceful, clean and just a great way to take in nature. Pack a picnic and bring the family and friends. Typically sanctuaries do not allow dogs.

Ninigret has several trails of various lengths. Trails are level, some are paved with views of the pond. There is plenty of parking and bathroom facilities. No bicycling allowed.

This park is large but we went because you can easily get your kayak in here and the kayaking is excellent! Go around the marinas or even better in the marsh. When we got back from kayaking did a little bicycling. Very nice.

There's easy access to the pond if you have your own kayak and there are many places to explore. This pond is best paddled close to high tide since there are many sandbars. There's plenty of wildlife to view and there are many great places...More

We've been here a couple times and it features a huge bay that's great for kayaking as long as you get in early as parking can be an issue.

According to the website, dogs are allowed only on certain trails at Kettle Pond. TA won't allow me to post a link to it for you, but if you google it I'm sure you will find it.
