Excerpts from the Explore RI's Blueways and Greenways: Georgiaville Town Beach:
Georgiaville Pond is a medium size pond on the Woonasquatucket River. The town beach is at the south end of the pond. The historic Smith-Appleby House is at the north end. There are lots of houses around the pond, but there are also a couple of pretty islands in the pond with tall pine trees on them. The boat launch goes into the pond, but if you paddle from there to the landing near the dam (1/4 mile) you can portage over the dam and into the Woonasquatucket River. For more on this portage and the river below the dam, see the listing for the portage. Note that a permit is required (available at town hall) to park at the town beach and use the boat ramp.
