Birding in Rhode Island

About East Beach
East State Beach, located in Charlestown, Rhode Island takes up three miles of prime beach shoreline. It is the easterly extension of Quonochontaug Neck. East Beach is one of the least developed of the Rhode Island state beaches, with limited parking and a half dozen changing rooms. Nonetheless it is one of Rhode Island’s spectacular seaside treasures.

This barrier beach and 20 site campground location offers four Clivus Multrum Composting Toilets for restrooms along with 3 miles of undeveloped beach frontage. Parking is very limited and fills up early on sunny summer days. A small portion of the beach is staffed with lifeguards on a seasonal basis. Special Camping/Vehicle Equipment requirements are required for camping at this location.

Vehicles driving on barrier beaches, as well as camping vehicles require Barrier Beach Passes.
