To get to Scott's Cove trail, take the Newport Bike Path north from the Prouty Beach entrance road. The trail heads into the woods on the left 60 feet from the entrance road and is marked by a small trail sign. It passes by part of the disc golf course and then descends toward the wetlands along an inlet off the lake. The trail follows these wetlands, including a small section with bog bridging, until it emerges onto the north end of the Prouty Beach Campground. Turn sharp left to climb a grassy trail back to the campground. The trail comes out between campsites 14 and 15.
Prouty Beach Campground has 75 campsites and amenities including tennis courts, playground, disc golf course, basketball court, shuffleboard and horseshoe pits. The lower beach building houses boat and bike rentals and access to bathrooms and changing facilities for the waterfront. For more information on the beach and campground, visit the Newport Parks and Recreation website.
