Kayak Launch Location
North Kingstown Town Boat Ramp, Wilson Park, Wickford Harbor: (CRMC designation under review) Direct;ions from Rt 4 (North or South), exit on Rt 102 east (Wickford). Proceed to stop light at junction of 102 and Rt 1. Turn left on Rt 1 north. Just beyond the Fire/Police Station, turn right onto Intrepid Dr. (small Wilson Park sign). Continue to the launch and the parking lot at the very end. It is labeled Long Pt on the map. This site has lots of parking and a poorly maintained steep ramp for launching trailered boats. Additional parking is in a lot and field before the primary lot. Kayak launching is better on the small marshy beach on Mill Cove, off to the north side of the grassy picnic area. In Season there is a portable toilets on site, otherwise limited bushes provide some discrete privacy.
