  • Beautiful place! My brother in law set up a family reunion for us at a lovely picnic area 25. You get 10 tables for your group and have all day to use the spot. It was so awesome we got there at 10 and stayed until sunset 🥰 the staff was very accommodating and came and checked on us a few times. Thanks for the memories
  • We visited Colt State Park on 3/7/2022. It was the Independence Day eve and it was fully packed with people out in son for picnic and get together. A beautiful summer day in the park which is nicely located at ocean / water front - who doesn’t want to be there. We also did a small family picnic outside at this place on a picnic table. There were ample green space areas out of some were camping pre booked site areas which were all full and park staff was present at those location entrance. There were ample opportunity for biking and 7 y.o fully utilized this opportunity. He couldn’t find any beach 🏖 at the area where we walked, that was near to fishing pier. But the long side walk next to ocean for walking/biking 🚶‍♀️ provides a decent experience if you have a patience to sit and relax.
  • The areas and sections of this waterside State Park in Bristol RI is very diverse in character and views. It has different moods to seek out, pathways to follow, shaded areas to tuck under, and all the sunlight you want. A favorite gathering place for groups of friends or organizations celebrating. I even conducted a couple outdoor weddings there years ago. For a time 40 years ago I was blessed to live within walking distance. Walking, running, wandering, even napping can happen between raids of your picnic basket!!
  • 11.13.21 Took our bikes on this trail and explored the park as well as the East Bay Bike Path. What's not to love about this State Park? It was free, ample parking spots for this in cars, lots to do with families, on dates, or solo. People were biking, walking, sitting in the sun. Very quiet and clean area.
  • Amazing waterfront park with a state beach and boat launch. There isna walking/biking trail, picnic benches and stone walkways. The sunsets here are beautiful and the people are friendly. It does however fill up quickly some weekends.
