RIDOH Recommends Closing Two Larkin Pond Beaches; Reopening Camp Grosvenor Beach in North Kingstown

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Camp Hoffman and Kinston Camp on Larkin Pond in Kingston for swimming because of high bacteria counts. RIDOH recommends reopening Camp Grosvenor Beach in North Kingstown for swimming, based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits.

Beaches at Kent County YMCA Lower Pond and Conimicut Point in Warwick remain closed for swimming.

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 on a daily basis. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
