Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to empty my Bath House at the end of the season when I plan on coming back next year?
A: Yes. We perform annual maintenance on the Bath House lockers and need them to be cleared out. Also, the Bath Houses are not air tight and leaving items in your locker can be damaged from inclement weather conditions.
Q: I have been a Bath House member for years. Do I still need to provide proof of residency and/or age with my renewal application?
A: Yes. Almost 25% of applications returned have some changes on it. We do not keep this information on file due to confidentiality and security reasons. Also, we just want to make sure we are charging the correct amount for every application as circumstances change on an annual basis.
Q: What happens if I lose my reserved parking hang tag?
A: No problem! Lost or stolen permits may be replaced at the cost of $25.00 in our Beach office. Only 1 hang tag per season will be replaced at $25. Any additional replacements will be at full price. (Subject to availability)

A: Valid Rhode Island driver's license with Newport address; or, valid Rhode Island Motor Vehicle Registration with Newport address; or Bona fide Lease of Six (6) Months Duration or longer and duly executed and signed by all parties.
