About Salter Grove State Park
George B. Salter Grove is a pleasant little park with grassy areas and views out over the bay. This is a site for launching hand-carried boats such as canoes or kayaks.

There is no boat ramp here, but the shoreline is suitable for launching hand-carried boats. An extensive breakwater protects a large area north of this access site and south of Pawtuxet Cove, making for a large, sheltered area good for less experienced paddlers as long as you keep an eye out for pleasure craft. Heading beyond the breakwater puts you in the Providence River, where caution should be used both because this is a large body of water that can easily become rough and because the river is used by large commercial vessels going to and from the Port of Providence.

A mile north of this put-in, in Pawtuxet Cove, is the mouth of the Pawtuxet River and with the recent removal of the old dam at the mouth of the river, it is now possible to paddle from the cove into the river, if you time the tides correctly. For more details see the information on the put-in at Pawtuxet Village Park (Asprey Boat House).
