Kayak Launch Location
East Ferry, Jamestown: (CRMC designation n/a) Directions from Jamestown Bridge, follow Rt 138 and get off at the Jamestown exit, just before the Newport Bridge entrance. Coming from the Newport Bridge, exit immediately at the Jamestown exit. Continue into downtown Jamestown which is the site of the old landing for the Newport-Jamestown ferry. There is a public fishing pier and a boat ramp. The ramp is adequate, but there is limited parking which is usually full. The town's harbor bustles with summer boating enthusiasts, which means minimal public parking. Some additional parking in available along the street. It is easier to launch at the town beach off the grassy area. Public restrooms are located one block south outside the town hall. This area is in the commercial district of Jamestown.
