Finding Us At Pawtuckaway:

Navigation aids direct people to the park in different ways. Exit 5 off of route 101 is the way into the right entrance. After the exit, bear right and follow the signs to Pawtuckaway State Park. Once inside the park, you can bypass the campground office. If there is someone at the toll booth, just tell them you are picking up/dropping off at the youth camping site for South Church, and are already paid for by the church. Continue on the long paved road to the first right hand turn, then to the right again, toward youth camping area. Park in the lot, walk in toward the big pavilion, and then walk to the right of it to Site D.
