RIDOH Recommends Closing Three Freshwater Beaches for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Camp Hoffman and Kingston Camp on Larkin Pond in Kingston, and Camp Canonicus in Exeter for swimming because of high bacteria levels.

RIDOH will continue to monitor and review beach water quality regularly to ensure safe bathing throughout the summer season. The status of a beach may change as new data become available. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
