Ninigret, Rhode Island’s largest coastal pond, offers great opportunities for plant and wildlife viewing. Nineteen rare or endangered plant species inhabit the pond’s shores and the Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge, and more than 250 bird species have been recorded here. We don’t recommend this pond for novice paddlers because of tides, wind-driven waves, and boat traffic.
