Description Suggest change

This is a new DEM state park that exists at the old Rocky Point amusement park location. There is a fair bit of rock here that has a cool texture and many overhangs. Rocky Point has the only sandstone bouldering in Rhode Island.

Unfortunately the park has a fair bit of graffiti and litter in it due to it having been closed to the public for a number of years following the closure of the old amusement park that was once located here and it being used as a party spot for locals.

Getting There Suggest change

Rocky Point Avenue in Warwick. Go to the end and there is a parking lot on the right just as the road makes a sharp left. Park there ( the main signed entrance is a little further, past the turn, but it is slightly further away from most of the bouldering except Puddingstone Heights)

From the first lot, walk up the gated paved road (like you went straight from Rocky Point Ave. instead of taking the left turn) and in a couple of minutes, just before you enter a large field, you will see sort of a ridge of rock and boulders leading off to the left. Head in directly from here on your left to get to the Railroad Area (you will see the remains of some narrow gauge rr tracks, the Coffee Milk Bldr,  Boulder 1 and Frizbee Bldr) or continue to the field and turn left and left again following  a dirt track nearly under the tower and cable remains of the old "Sky Line" up the ridge. Coming from the field you first come to the Buttcrack wall on your right. Next on the right is the Troll Toll, an obvious cave made by a capping boulder that you can pass through to get to the Small Cave. Further along on your right is the Large Cave, then you hook around to the right for the Dark Side then the tall Zeezus wall.
