Boondocking in Rhode Island!

Boondocking in Rhode Island is largely non-existent due to the lack of federal recreation lands, very few state wildlife management units, and high-density population over a very small area. Primitive camping is largely the domain of private property owners willing to let you camp on their grounds.
