Colt State Park has something for everyone- the beach, tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields, walking and biking paths, wide open spaces, beautiful wildlife, and many cookout sites.

This is a great place for a family picnic or walk. The paths are safe and well maintained and connect to the Bristol pathway. This is especially a wonderful place if traveling with young children. Beautiful views of the ocean and sprawling lawn provide a great place for relaxing, reading or walking.

This is by far my favorite State Park! The ocean (bay) view is absolutely breathtaking and walking by the water makes you feel so relaxed. I came here two days in a row with my 3 young children and we all enjoyed both times. Even though it was the weekend, there were plenty of parking spaces available and definitely lots of places to sit and enjoy the breeze and the view. The kids had fun running around without bothering or bumping into anybody. The one thing I just wasn’t sure about was I didn’t see any trash bins. Dogs are also allowed

Beautiful area, lots of places to sit and enjoy the area. Places to picnic, walk, and just chill along the water. Definitely worth the stop.

This was my second trip visiting Colt State Park on a bike. I can now say riding into the water view reveal feels 100% breathtaking each time. The park wasn't too crowded, but even so, those who I came across were polite and there for peace and relaxation. You can't not marvel at the waves and the lawn expanse. The bike trails are straightforward and there are plenty of benches for resting and taking in the views.

We enjoyed our brief visit to this park while vacationing in Newport. There is a wonderful paved path that follows the shoreline and can be combined with other trails through the woods. Though it was midweek, there many people of all ages enjoying picnics, sunbathing and other activities though parking was not a problem. I would likely be walking my dog here everyday if we lived nearby.

We are so lucky to have this park less than 10 minutes away! We have biked and walked through there many times. Incredible water views!
