Blackstone Valley Tourism Council (Rhode Island) is starting preliminary conversations with the city regarding the possibility of providing support to revitalize the River Island Campground.

According to a report, the 4-acre River Island Campground features a 1/8-mile walking trail and a space to launch a canoe or kayak. It is situated across a footbridge from River Island Park off High Street.

The park first opened in 2013, but it has not been utilized as a camping spot for several years. The island is a flat terrain ideal for camping and will be the only camping facility along the banks of the entire 48-mile stretch of the river. The campground is filled with oak trees and the sound of running rapids and chirping birds.

The little island campground on the Blackstone River was developed as a place to offer tranquility and passive recreation. The campground features scenic views, river access for kayaking, canoeing, or fishing, a campfire area, and walking trails that circle the island.

“It’s a great little place to go and be,” said Central Falls Department of Planning and Economic Development Director Thomas Deller. “It’s a very quiet, reflective place in the middle of the city.”
