Charlestown, Rhode Island
Administrado por The Swim Guide

In 1927 the Metropolitan Park Commission began to acquire woodland around the Watchaug Pond. In 1930 this area was a wild life preserve and in 1934 it officially became the Burlingame State Park. It eventually became the states first campground, named after Edwin A. Burlingame. It became home to the 141st Company of the Civilian Conservation corps and it was later used for as a POW camp during WWII.

Visitors can enjoy camping, fishing, swimming, picnicking, boating hiking, wildlife observation and hunting in designated areas.
