About Roger Wheeler State Beach
The name change from Sand Hill Cove to Roger W. Wheeler State Beach happened on August 15, 1970. Captain Roger W. Wheeler (1907-1969) was the creator of the Rhode Island State Life-Saving System. Without a cadre of life guards at the beaches, who promoted safe swimming practices, the public use of our coastal waters would have amounted to little more than an “attractive nuisance.” Trained, alert, and capable life guards have prevented many family tragedies over the years.

Between 1996 and 1997, a redesign and renovation of the beach facilities at Roger Wheeler produced a new pavilion, coin-operated hot showers, a playground, concession building, a life-guard tower, and an environmental educational area.
