A new fee structure was implemented for all RI State Campgrounds in 2019. Residents noticed a minimal increase, whilst non-residents saw rates almost double or more. Also note that they have changed their booking, cancellation and refund policies. Please be sure to review before making your reservation. Bound4Burlingame will continue to request RI DEM to activate a discount code for Reserve America use.
