River Island Campground

About the Campground

River Island Campground is a 4-acre gem that sits right along the Blackstone River in Central Falls, RI. By crossing an arched steel and wood pedestrian bridge to the island you are quickly transported to a serene landscape of oak trees, running rapids, and chipping birds more commonly associated with Northern New England. River Island Campground also hosts scenic views, river access for kayaking, canoeing or fishing, a campfire area, and walking trails that circle the island for your relaxation and enjoyment. There are two cleared communal campsite areas with picnic tables on Blackstone River Island designed for low-impact primitive tent camping. The island also allows campers to have the choice to set up camp outside of the cleared area wherever they see a suitable spot.

Adjacent to the island is River Island Park, a great space for group activities or playing field games with your party. The 2.5 acre park has a large grass area, paved running track, and picnic tables that line the terrace overlooking the channel. Restrooms and access to potable water are in the red brick field house near the parking area of the park, and the entire area is secured by police patrol.

Experience what River Island Campground has to offer by having your organized group camp with us this season!

    You do a fantastic job describing this area in a poetic sense. Even with being raised on the east coast, visiting camp grounds & exploring the outdoors is something I’ve done a poor job of & now with owning a <a href=“”https://www.google.com/maps/place/Premier1+Hauling+%26+Junk+Removal/39.4975841,-76.5948205,10z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c7e79fe8327d3b:0xb62be16fb35dac72!8m2!3d39.4979204!4d-76.3146354" rel="nofollow">https://www.google.com/maps/place/Premier1+Hauling+%26+Junk+Removal/39.4975841,-76.5948205,10z/data=4b13m48m24d-76.3146354">Trash Hauling</a> company, I rarely get the time to visit. As things ease up with COVID, i definitely have the intent to visits like the one you have described. Thank you for this.

    Can’t wait for the River Island Campground to reach it’s former glory after the pandemic. A great place if you love trees like I do! I was reading about how mom and pop camps are closing down when I though about this. Wish the best!

    We have beautiful parks in all South Florida and feel that we need more and more trees to help mother nature. Many people are relocating or moving out of state because of the high temperatures. IF you need movers Miami we can help https://www.movingdoral.com/

    Looks like the link to my business supporting the rebuild of parks did not work. here it is again for you folks.

  • Derek Brown
    We actually have a lot of parks like River Island Campground around Lancaster PA. Unfortunately not all are in great shape and some are in disrepair. Some other business owners are banding together and raising money to repair some of these parks. This is one of the businesses (mine) that supports this cause.

    I forgot to mention how I am in the process of scheduling a visit to Rhode Island currently.

    I really appreciate having places like this to take my family on getaways. We live in the tri-state area and although its similar to NE, it just doesnt have the same feel. When I can get time away from my <a href=“”https://www.treeservicealtoona.com/tree-service-johnstown-pa.html" rel="nofollow">https://www.treeservicealtoona.com/tree-service-johnstown-pa.html">Johnstown PA Business</a> , I love to take my family here.
