Directions

There are three access points to Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge:

East Entrance - There will be large brown highway signs to guide you, and this is the entrance that the directions above will guide you to. If you are coming from the North on U.S. Route 1 South you will have to double back to travel a short distance heading north on Route 1. If you are coming from the South on U.S. Route 1 North, you will veer off of Route 1 onto Old Post Rd. Enter Charlestown's Ninigret Park and drive through the park to get to our parking area, public restrooms and kayak launch site. Follow the road past the tennis courts, playgrounds, Frosty Drew Nature Center, frisbee golf course, stay straight at the turn for the Charlestown Senior Center, go past the new bark park and you will see a brown sign on your right.

West Entrance - This will be the second entrance coming from either direction. There will be large brown highway signs to guide you, but from the North you will have to double back at Wildflower Road to travel a short distance heading north on Route 1. This entrance is directly off of Route 1 and is just past a gas station and real estate office on your right.

Kettle Pond Visitor Center Entrance - If you are coming from the North on U.S. Route 1 South, just follow the signs and the entrance is on your right. If you are coming from the South on U.S. Route 1 North, you will have to double back to travel a short distance heading south on Route 1. The address is 50 Bend Road, Charlestown, RI 02813.
