TRWA has located the best canoe and kayak access points for watershed paddling.  We then teamed up with RI Blueways to put this information on line.  Click here for an interactive map of the region's boat ramps, put-in's, and dams.   If you are not sure of where you want to go, use this link to find a boat ramp that suits your experience and sense of adventure. By exploring these Rhode Island paddling organizations, you will appreciate Taunton River’s watershed’s connection to Mount Hope Bay and our not-so-far-away neighboring waters in Rhode Island.
