Great campground. We were at site 110 on Labor Day weekend. It is right at the boat ramp so there was constant activity. Early morning wakes up with boats backing in and the fishermen shouting directions. The camp itself is great. This was our third trip here. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What I loved about this campground was that the sites are woodsy and private (we stayed in the 500s area). Its a beautiful park with a nicely stocked camp store on site. I'd imagine off-season or even during the week would be a great place to camp. What I didn't like about it...when we stayed the campground was filled to capacity. The camp store, playground, and bathrooms were mobbed with people and long lines. Forget about the "beach", we couldn't get close enough to it. The line of traffic to get there was insane, and for good reason: there were only 4 parking spots. The campsites near the beach reminded me of a low scale trailer park...the sites were small and on top of each other, and roads were narrow. I would definitely recommend a site further from the beach, and bring a bike because nothing is in walking distance except maybe a bathroom. The bathroom I found were hit or miss. the first one we went to was tiny, crowded, dirty, and the 2 showers were shared behind one curtain not allowing any privacy. However the second bathroom we found had twice as many stalls and 4 showers. We still had to wait in long lines to use both. When booking a site, pay attention to the size because they aren't consistent. This makes it difficult for someone with a large tent (ours is 20x11) to find a suitable spot free of stumps to set up. Overall I did like this campground, but i don't think i will ever camp here again on a weekend during the the summer. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Tent.

Burlingame is a no frills kind of place. Lots of space though and there are some very nice lots in the woods. Fun place to bring your bike with lots of paved roads to ride on. The "beach" area is small and it's difficult to find a place to fish from if you want to cast from land. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the prettiest parks we've stayed at. Has big sites and lots of privacy. Fish pond area is nice for canoes and boats. 115 is waterfront on the pond. Has tall trees. Nearby, on route 1 is Dan's (the purple house on a hill), where you can get WiFi and the best blueberry muffins I've ever had. They have computers you can use. We would have stayed longer if they had some amenities. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park. Large sites mostly shaded that will accommodate any size camper. They have a camp store that is fairly well stocked. Close to the RI beaches. I have camped here for years and the only problem is they say no alcohol but almost every time we have gone here we have had to call the ranger because of drunks (dozens of times). Mostly Spanish is spoken here on the week end. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice State Park with pond for boating,fishing and close to RI beaches. NO FACILITIES here and the bathrooms are nearly 3rd world. It has a camp store, playground and a nice area to bike around. Sites are large with fire pits. Spanish is mostly spoken here. The week ends can take on a Cinco de Mayo atmosphere. We camped at Burlingame State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
