Welcome to Charlestown

The largest of these wetlands, Ninigret (or Charlestown) Pond is surrounded by the 1711-acre Ninigret State Conservation Area, a coastal lagoon bounded by barrier beaches and fed by freshwater springs. A 2.5 mile beach (also known as East Beach) fronts the ocean and offers fishing (striped bass, flounder, bluefish and tautog), a 10-speed bicycle course and well-marked walking trails, while the landside Ninigret Wildlife Refuge shelters deer and birds.
