The LeGrand Reynolds Horsemen’s Camping Area in Rhode Island, which has been exclusively used for equestrian camping for over 50 years, is facing the possibility of being opened up to the public for other outdoor activities. Riders who frequent the area, including Cecily Westervelt from the Rhode Island Federation of Horse Clubs, are concerned that the unique camping location will disappear. However, if financial constraints are the issue, horse riders have expressed willingness to pay more than the $3 fee to continue exclusive use. The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management has stated that its intended goal is not to expand the area for new recreational uses, but to simplify the regulations.
