Our site was in the lower section and it was very nice. It was level with a picnic table and fire ring. The cable at our site was not watchable but we got TV over the air and we did get our satellite to work. We very much enjoyed our time here and would stay here again. - Travelindog

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 5 nights in a site for big rigs, site F13. The Good.... Big coaches need a gravel pad and we give this rv park 5-stars for the thick gravel pad. Each site has grass between and a nice brick pad with a fire pit. If you have a dog there is ample area to walk, plus a short walk down the lane is a great dog park. After 5 nights the dust on our coach was minimal compared to many other parks. The Bad.... Our site was not level (front tires were off the ground). If you desire privacy, request a site in the back of the park (sites are much roomier). Our satellite worked great at our site, however there are many trees in the back of the rv park so satellite reception would be questioned. On a side note: The office misled us in regard to their wifi. When we made our reservations we were told (both by phone and by email) that they have excellence wifi for checking email. Wrong! The entire time we were there only a couple times were we able to check our email (and that was after 11pm). Today we live in the age of wifi technology and there is nothing to stop this rv park from investing in doing wifi properly. For some users such as ourselves, wifi is an important feature and was one of the reasons for our stay here. We know enough not to count on a good signal over the weekends, but during the weekday there is no excuse. We even have the Wifi-Ranger on our roof with a direct-line-of-sight to their wifi source. There were no trees in the line-of-sight, and the distance wasn't a factor. If you're looking for a quiet and clean park where you can sit outside and relax... go here. We enjoyed our stay here, however because of their 'dishonesty' with the wifi strength we wouldn't return. - JDC10

Campground has a nice appearance on entry, check in is easy. The roads are gravel and the sites are also gravel and dirt. The campground is tree shaded so satellite reception is not available for most sites. The cable is excellent. Our site, 107, was not the best, not level and mostly mud and dirt. Parking of the toad was very tight. Cell service is good. The campground is in a good location for visiting Newport, Portsmouth and Providence. We were there for just two days. - Nautilus

A very basic and small campground. There are six sites with no facilities except a single porta-potty. No trees so no problem getting satellite. Had very good TMobile service. The campground is located off of the main base, but fairly close. Very convenient location for all of the activities in Newport. - Chuck Shrader

We stayed in a class "C" towing a dolly. Really long site with water & electricity only. A great view of the water & sailboats. No dump at all, we had to go the commercial RV resort about a mile away to dump the tanks. It's all about the great location for the area. This camp is not fenced off from the public but the base & its facilities are not far away. You need to go to the marina on base to finish the paperwork after you get set up in your spot. - becida

Small park of only 6 side-by-side sites. Nothing exciting to look at, but great location. Near base and all the activities that Newport has. There is a portable toilet, but no bathrooms. Great price for camping in the northeast, especially if you have a family--no extra charge for kids. - RVerFamily

After reading RVP reviews and looking forward to our stay, we were very disappointed in Westport. It seemed like MOST of the occupants were long term, with lots of unnecessary 'stuff' around the sites. The bathrooms and showers were just acceptable. The hook-up for our sewer was the most 'mickey mouse' set up we have ever seen. Sadly, we would not consider staying here again. - Cinzia

Good spot to do day trips to Newport, R.I., Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Plymouth and Cape Cod. Caters mostly to seasonal campers. Family owned and maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. See homemade video located on webpage. Campgrounds do not quite live up to the video. An average campground. Very dusty during our stay due only to lack of rain. Campsites are right on top of each other and extra care is required to back into tight sites. They do not rent to campers older than 2002 because of the age. Humorously, lots and lots of rules. The sinks were push down cold water. - Mike from Bama

What can I say, as it was my choice to stay at this Park, but then there aren't many Parks in the area to choose from. The Desk person was very courteous and the grounds are nice, but... at $58.50 a night with the GS Discount, it's rather outrageous that there are no restrooms and no showers available for use. Our site #5, wasn't very level and pretty tight. The full hookup connections were all at the very back of the site and not convenient and the wifi was nonexistent. Location of sewer connection was inconvenient. The location to the local sites was good, but this RV Park was no value. - David G

Great location. satisfactory park. We had asked for a FHU and mailed in a deposit, and when we arrived they only had an electric only site. Apparently this is standard operating procedure, so be sure you are OK with electric-only before considering this park. There is a dump station near the front where you can also take on water. There are also a couple of water stations scattered around the park. The water pressure is pretty low, so it takes a while to fill your tank. We think there are a few FHU sites up front, but almost all of those sites are taken by seasonal trailers. Also, those sites seem to be much closer together than the ones in the back or "the field" as they call it. The sites in the field are all grass, back-in sites with 30 amp only. The sites are fairly spacious with old picnic tables and very few trees. There is a bit of a slope to all sites in the field, but nothing unmanageable. There is no Wi-Fi in the field, they lost their provider. They take cash or checks, they took our personal check from Texas. So why stay here? You are less than a mile from Easton Beach, not much further to second beach and very close to all of the mansions and the center of Newport. You are literally minutes from anywhere in town. They do keep the park mowed and clean, and they give you a big packet of information upon arrival. We were comfortable during our stay notwithstanding the limited amenities. - darwinmoore

Meadowlark is a no-frills, well-maintained RV park run by very friendly and helpful people. It is located in a nice neighborhood. Our site #2 was fairly level and had a fair amount of space. Wifi was very strong. Cash or checks only and no bathrooms or showers. $60 is a hefty price for a site and wifi BUT you are only 2.5 miles from Newport! It was really nice to jump in the truck and be in the middle of town. We stayed 2 nites and would have stayed longer if we had the time. - alm

The office people that handle the reservation are not pleasant. The fees are required by check upfront and are not returnable. We arrived and were but in a site with out a concrete slab and expected to remove everything placed on grass while not at campsite. No bathroom facilities and unfriendly owners. We did not stay the second night even though we forfeited the night unused. We preferred to go to a nicer and more pleasant location. This is hardly "Paradise" location is the only thing it has going for it. Wi-Fi did not work. Would not recommend to anyone. - AlmostRetired

Close to Newport Harbor. When I called to make a reservation I was told "first come, first served". This seemed odd to me. Manager stated she had a few spaces so we departed earlier than planned. Manager seems to be very protective of her property, so she comes off as particular. Beautiful grassy site. Did not find an available Wi-Fi signal. Extra $8.00 charge for A/C or electric water heater "but you can't use both at the same time" on 30 amp service. A few TV channels on antenna. We liked the convenient location. - Bigdave2165

Well maintained, level sites. Quiet but close enough to downtown (bike or car). Owners are friendly and helpful. Not much for kids to do at the park. But beaches are only a few miles away. No showers. No bathrooms so you must be self contained. Big plus for us was excellent, free Wi-Fi. Great place to work from if you are working on the road. - Jeff F.

No maintenance and zero management. Dog fesces on campsite , unkempt grounds, 10 hoses to water bib. No pressure, brown water and no grounds rules. Loud parties to the early AM. The city of Jamestown should be embarrassed.
The view and location was wonderful. - Coffeetrader

The vast majority of campers here are seasonal but for transients, Ft. Getty Park provides an inexpensive alternative to private campgrounds or difficult to reserve state parks in this area of Rhode Island. The campground occupies the top of a knoll at the mouth of the bay, and to reach it one must pass through Jamestown itself. This will pose no problem to any but the largest rigs. Interior roads are paved and easy to negotiate. All sites are treeless, grass back-ins roughly 25' wide by 60' deep, laid out in rows, with nothing to separate you from your neighbor. Hook-ups are water & electric only; water connections for some sites will require 40 or more feet of hose. There are no amenities of any kind. Restroom and shower facilities are old but clean enough to be useable (we did not). A dump station is available at the park exit. There was no debris or trash of any kind on the grounds. Our mid-week stay was quiet however I think weekends may be less so. As a base for touring the area, it is adequate. We would stay here again. - RamWagon

We really lucked out in both finding this place and getting a last minute spot! The location is a peninsula with beautifully groomed lawn, spacious and incredible views of the ocean. Very quiet and serene, Jamestown had great little stores and restaurants. We cycle and will definitely come back to ride the Island for sure.
The dump site is at the entrance and a bit of a walk or slow drive if your dumping via a portable dump tank. There is a pier where you can fish and relax.
Bring a 50 foot power cord, depending on the site we barely made it with our 25 foot cord, same goes with your fresh water hose. - koeka

We had an ocean front Site right on the water. What more can you say? The campground is very clean and neat with friendly staff. There is a dump station and clean water. - 1ST Mountain Air

Fine beachfront camping. The beach is mostly rounded stone, with limited gray sand. When we visited the surf was high due to a recent hurricane. Expect a strong breeze most days, no shade, and if you are in one of the waterfront sites you may get salt spray at your site. There are even steel tie-down rings at the waterfront sites, although you wouldn't need those except in case of a tropical storm, and then campground would like be evacuated anyway. Waterfront sites are hard to get and need reservations far in advance. Good centrally-located bathrooms and showers. This is a popular campground. Out of state rate was $17 and Mass. residents pay $15. We liked it but the salt spray caused some rust on steel parts of our trailer. - silvertube

This was our first trip to Horseneck Beach. I chose a site close to the water spigot and also right next to the playground. When we arrived the site was a pull-through and very unlevel. I used 4 1/2" of wood and had to drop the nose of the camper all the way to the ground. Almost all the other sites were level. I was able to hook my water hose to the spigot that was five feet away from the camper. There isn't any shade here and with the wind we weren't able to put out the awning. My kids loved the beach and riding bikes. We rode to these old bunker towers that looked like they were from WWII. My daughter liked collecting seashells and my oldest son and I went on a bike ride on the "Healthy Trail" which is about two miles one way through the dunes. At night the sky was so clear we could almost see every star. My wife saw two shooting stars and the satellites were like airplanes. We would definitely go back again. - B. P. Donelan

An older small campground. Mostly seasonals but there are some sites for transients. Electric is only 15 amp and not at all sites. However, it is on a very pretty pond. Road in has many low branches and is narrow. If you are coming from the east, be sure and take the 2nd end of Peachem Lane (it is semi-circular). Poor signage. Nice folks. - sleeps2

Camp is needing some overall updating. It is pleasant with a pond for the kids, though parents weren't watching them. Minature golf is not kept up and needs a lot of TLC. Pool was very clean and well kept. Restrooms were not bad. I hear the camp is for sale and it looks as if it needs someone to bring it into this year, but not bad in general. We would stay there again. Note: They only accept cash and pets must be less than 25 lbs. - ctreichel
