Bowdish Reservoir Boat Launch

Glocester Elementary School District
Glocester, RI 02814

Bowdish reservoir is a 226 acre reservoir partly encompassed by George Washington Management Area. The shoreline is often rocky and floating bog mats in the center of the pond make for an interesting ecosystem to explore from a small boat. Just do not try to walk on the floating bog mats because you will fall through. There is a concrete plank boat ramp and a gravel parking area at the campground off route 44, at the east of the reservoir. No motors in excess of 10 H.P. The fishing is reported to be good in the reservoir.
