5 Awesome Campgrounds for Families in Rhode Island

Head to the great outdoors with your family for a weekend and enjoy one of Rhode Island’s many campgrounds. Packed with fun-loving staff members, clean facilities, and plenty of activities, you and your kids will be sure to love these five great campgrounds.

1. Oakleaf Family Campground, Chepachet, RI

This campground fosters a tight community. The grounds are family owned, and the owners work hard to keep the facility—which includes a pool—safe and clean for all visitors! Younger children will enjoy the small playground, and adults and kids alike can gather for a game on the bocce ball court! The grounds are pet-friendly, too.

2. Holiday Acres Campgrounds, North Scituate, RI

Since 1945, Holiday Acres has been curating a relaxing environment for the whole family. There’s always a fun activity planned for families, and you and your kids can take advantage of the facility’s horseshoe pits, pool table, huge field, and boating house!

3. Westwood Family Campground, Coventry, RI

This 80-acre campground is maintained by the Westwood YMCA on the Quidnick Reservoir. Enjoy activities like fishing, sailing, basketball and archery, or enroll your child in swim lessons or a day camp! There’s even a golf course just three minutes away, making Westwood the perfect place to spend time with the family. 

4. Worden Pond Family Campground, Wakefield, RI

This is no pond! In fact, Worden is one of Rhode Island’s largest freshwater lakes. Take a dip and spend the rest of the day lounging around on the campgrounds—with clean bathrooms and a beautiful natural setting, it’s an ideal place to relax!

5. Whispering Pines Campground, Hope Valley, RI

Find your perfect campsite within the 50 acres of tall pines that surround Whispering Pines. The camp offers a swimming pool, miniature golf, row boats, and a fishing pond, in addition to a snack bar open during the summer and a recreation hall. Join fellow campers for a pancake breakfast offered between July and September every year!
