“Best beach!!!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I have been going to Misquamicut Beach since I was young and I still love it today 40 years later. The water is so clean and there is always waves. The facilities are clean. Within walking distance to the main state beach, there are several bars and restaurants, water slides, a kiddie amusement park complete with carousel, hotels, jet ski rentals, banana boat rides and gift shops. The Westerly Town Beach which is right next door has free concerts on the beach ranging from reggae to classis rock to smooth jazz. It is just a great time.

“Great, clean beach”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We stayed in Mystic CT and found that this beach was easy to get to from there and the beach area is very clean. The parking was easy, although be prepared to pay to park, close by facilities were near by to use for bathroom and shower use. There was even food being sold if you were hungry. Perfect outing if you are near by!

“Always fun!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Not much I don't like, don't come on the weekend though, you can't find a place for a towel much less a blanket and umbrella.

“Clean, convenient, but pricey for out of state parking”
Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

We loved going to Misquamicut State Beach for a really gorgeous Saturday. Lots of parking, BUT be prepared for sticker shock as an out of state car, $28.00, but $14 if you are a senior. Clean beach, convenient parking, showers, restrooms, amenities like rentals of umbrellas, boogie boards, chairs, and a food concession stand. Bring your own picnic and beach stuff. The waves were perfect for boogie boarding or body surfing. No kites, ball playing, pets, frisbees, or grills. I would compare this beach to The best of the Jersey Shore, or Ogunquit, ME but warmer water for beautiful sugar sand. Great for sand castles or other sand sculpturing.

“burlingame state park campground”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

we stayed at this campground because it was the closest to misqumicut beach in rhode island.
It also attracted us because we could also bring our dog with us. The campground is very well kept and quiet. we stayed friday and saturday night. It would have been nice if some kind of camp function was planned,,cuz it was so very boring that we ended up going to foxwoods( which is 20 min away) for sat night. all and all it was good price 40.00 for 2 nights. very rustic, no elec, sewer.
