Most People Don’t Know There’s a Kayak Park Hiding In Rhode Island

Many know Lincoln Woods State Park for its huge boulders and great trails, but this Rhode Island gem is also a fantastic kayaking park. Olney Pond provides 128 acres of freshwater to explore within the heart of the park and paddling is the perfect way to view it. The best part — you don’t need any experience or even your own kayak.
