Pros:Great Sites, Warm Showers, Good Atmosphere

Cons:None that I can think of right now

Burlingame State Campground is located in Charlestown, Rhode Island. The Camping Season there is from April 15 through October 31. It has 755 total camping sites. The rates are $8 per night/per site for residents, $12 per site/per night for non-residents and daily visitor passes are available for $2 per car. Check-in time is 1pm and check out is at 11am. The facilities there are very good when compared to most state owned campgrounds. They have water, showers (which cost 25 cents for about five minutes, but are hot), restrooms, pumping stations, fire pits, and picnic tables. There are a wide variety of sites to choose from as far as location. They have many sites that are totally shaded and for those of you that love the sun, they have sites out in open fields.

Some of the activities you will find at the campground are fishing, hiking, swimming, and boating. They have canoes available for rental. Rates on the canoes vary with the length of time you want to rent one. We rented one for 24 hours and that was $30. Each canoe rental includes life preservers and oars. The beach area is at the lake. It is roped off and nice and sandy. It is a very clean swimming area, as you can see the bottom anywhere you are standing in it. There is also a playground for the little children, as well as basketball, volleyball and horshoe facilities for all to use. All equipment for those facilities is available in case you forget to bring yours along. For the night time activities there is a decent little rec room with video games and billiard tables.

There is a store on the premises. It has most of thing anyone would need while camping and is reasonably priced for being in the campground. Wood for the fire is $6 for a prebagged bunch which is usually really dry and will burn up very quickly. You are better served to bag your own from the woodpile. You get more wood that way and it is cheaper at $5 per bag.
The best deal on wood though is at a little house right before you enter the campground on the right. They sell 15 nice sized pieces for $5.

Quiet Hours in the Campground are from 10pm - 7am and there is no alcohol allowed.

As you can tell this is a great place to spend you weekend or family vacation. We absolutely love it there and are sure you will too. Holiday weekends in the summer are very crowded so be sure to get there a couple of days early.
