Charlestown is named after King Charles II, and was incorporated in 1738. The area was formerly part of the town of Westerly. Charlestown was in turn divided and the part north of the Pawcatuck River became the town of Richmond in 1747.
Burlingame State Park and Campground is located inside the town of Charlestown. The campground is 3,100 acres of rocky woodland that surrounds Watchaug Pond in Charlestown. Park activities include 755 campsites, fishing, swimming, picnicking, boating and hiking. The area north of Buckeye Brook Road, abutting the Pawcatuck River, is primarily a hunting area.
