Kayak Launch Location


Quonochontaug State Fishing Area and Breachway, Charlestown: (State Fishing Access) Directions from Rt 1, exit at West Beach Rd. Go straight to the end of the road which will eventually bear slightly right and turn into a dirt road along a breachway. The State-owned 49-acre parcel runs parallel to the east side of the Quonochontaug Breachway. The parking area and pond/launch is at the very end. Parking is available at the end of West Beach Road for about 30 cars and boat trailers. The boat ramp located at this site is not the best to launch kayaks because the currents running through the breachway can be quite swift. The sandy beach at the very end of the road is a better spot for kayak launching, which is not in the breachway current. There are no portable toilets on site but nearby bushes provide limited discrete privacy.
