Easy friendly check in. Gated. Charge $20 refundable deposit for a card to gate. Sites are private, level, shady and spacious. Clean laundry. They have a store, pool, mini golf etc. All closed for the season when we were there. For that reason I think the charge was $$ for no amenities. Coin operated shower. 25 cents for 5 minutes. After paying $50 per night for site it was crazy to pay 25 cents to take a shower. Good Verizon service. Mostly permanent sites but they were well kept and away from travelers. - Jan Orlando

We come to Wawaloam every year. This is our favorite campground. The sites are large, the staff is great, the campground itself and the (large) pool are always clean, the store is well stocked, (ice cream is awesome) it's just a great place to camp in Rhode Island. Plenty to do here too, mini golf, previously mentioned pool, water slides, horseshoes, (2) playground, ball field, open field areas, activities for children and adults, Friday night dinner and Sunday morning breakfast in the pavilion are delicious and very reasonably priced. - Chazman

I saw the other reviews which made me question my reservations at this campground. However our experience was very good. The campground was clean, the pool was large and inviting, the kids enjoyed the water slide (extra charges), and we found the employees to be friendly and helpful. Liked the rock firepits - nice touch. In short it was a nice park and very nice experience. We took day trips to Newport and Mystic.
Ways to improve - we were told the wrong way to enter our site, which made getting in difficult. As others reported, for our 36 foot motorhome the pad was small - so had to be a bit focused on where to place the unit. It appeared that some of the newer sites have bigger pads. You do have to pay for showers, but it was reasonably priced. Although for the total amount we paid they should have been included. There were bugs in the shower which freaked my daughter out - but it is camping after all. The bathhouse (the one we used) was nice. My challenge was the sewer was VERY far from my valve. Had to purchase additional extension hose. One other downside was the wifi was only available/usable in the store and at the community center.
Overall a very good experience and fun few days. Would stay again if in the area. - T.Butter

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

Most sites are seasonal (April 15 - Oct 15), though there are some transient sites and rustic cabins also. For a seasonal site in RI, this place is a bargain! But it is definitely a camp, not a resort. There is wifi available if you are near the office, there are plenty of over the air tv stations available, pump outs are available weekly for $15. Verizon cell phones work well, T Mobile does not. Not sure about others. There is a nice lake beach, playgrounds, tennis courts, horseshoes. This is a YMCA camp, so lots of children enjoying their summer weekdays at camp too. Not big rig friendly! We watched a longer 5th wheel hit one of the many rocks while turning a bend in the road. - Hereweare

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

The public roads coming to the campground had several low hanging branches. The original site was too small to get our rig into, but the staff was very helpful in finding another site. The site was level with central hook ups. The showers were older, clean, but limited warm water. The dump station was a maze to get to with low hanging branches. - Al and Anne-Marie

Wanted a quiet campground and one that had hook ups, which is limited on RI shoreline. Very basic, but that's what we wanted - we are retirees. Plus close to shoreline/Matunock Restaurants/quiet little beaches on shoreline. Has a bass lake across the street which was lovely. Teenagers in park were out late, doing donut holes with golf cart on basketball court. Facilities were adequate/no campground store. Would go back again. Owner friendly and accommodating & liked 24 hour security. - Ontheroadagain 3

The staff was friendly and helpful.There were many seasonal sites beyond the transient area.The transient area contained a bathroom / shower building which was dated but clean,also a playground.The pond is located some distance from the transient area and is across the road.The sites are quite sandy,fairly level and do not impress. - User2564

Have RV traveled for 3 years. This is one of the worst parks we have seen. If our stay had been longer than 3 nights we would have left without staying. No effort to keep park maintained and clean. No TV; satellite, cable, antenna. No WIFI. Sitting outside was unpleasant due to condition of the park. Difficult to back into. Too shallow to easily keep tow vehicle in site, park knew our length when they assigned site. Rows narrow, only 1 road in/out. Impossible to get by incoming/outgoing rigs. - KCMO escapee

We chose this campground because of the proximity to Mystic and Newport. The sites were spacious and level. We had a bad experience because we were next to a pavilion and one night there was extremely loud music until 9:00 P.M. We would stay there again but would ask if there were dances with loud music that night. - HaveDieselWillTravel

We stayed after the season, so no one was in the office. Luckily the Fed-X guy was there on the campground phone with someone. When he was done he handed me the phone to talk with someone about checking in. They told us what site to go to and that they'd be by to settle up later on. The site was a level pull thru. Connections were very easy. It was pretty typical of a resort style campground...fairly close to your neighbor, but not intrusive. There was a pool and a lot of recreational activities to do in season. There was also a large rec hall that I think sold food. I can't really find anything bad to say about the place. They never came to collect the money, but when we were leaving I noticed someone in the office so I pulled over and paid. $38 for a campsite in New England was pretty darn good, as that area tends to be too expensive. I would definitely go back, and recommend it for both overnighters and a destination campground. - villager04

It has filthy outdated restrooms. There are no activities for families or children. The playground consists of 2 swings. Water Hook-ups on sites are in a hole in the ground, very unsanitary. The sites are very close together. We would not stay here again. - Fulltimers8

The bathrooms were outdated and smelled. The bathroom was filthy. I would never stay here again. The campground is out in the middle of nowhere. - bonitap62

If you want peace and quiet, this is the perfect place to be. But to us that was the only reason to stay here. It is rather difficult to get to in our 40 ft. motorhome. The road is narrow with low hanging branches. Our site was very uneven and it was rather hard to level our rig. There was no designated spot for a dog walk, so we were always afraid we were somewhere we shouldn't have been. There was cable at each spot, but it was only available if you were staying for the season - not very accommodating. It was close to Providence, Newport, and Mystic. I don't think we would ever stay here again. - bobnpat

Spent the month of June there as it was a central location to see family and friends. Under new management, however management was no where to be found. The seasonal campers maintained the property and were very nice and helpful. We were required to cut the grass at our site, the pool was not usable and when I did contact management to complain, I was told I was not being " forced to stay". - CaroleS

This was our second stay here, this time in the big open area to the left. A fairly large, lumpy, hard packed grass area with a lot of back-in 30 amp full hookup sites. No problems with the grass sites and it had been really wet both before and during our stay. The sites are not numbered here. Lots of empty sites around us making for a roomy stay. Interior roads not the best, but doable. Sites are decent sized here. Cell and OTA TV were both very good. We will return as long as it is not too hot where we would need to run both AC units. - Bob and Inga

Nighly rate is $45, but they charged an extra $10 for the Memorial Holiday weekend. This is a older campground with dated facilities. But the electric, water, and sewer were adequate. The campground has two sections, one to the right of the entrance road and the other to the left. The sites to the right are mostly seasonal and permanents. The roads here are real rough with large boulder tops that you drive over. There are also a lot of tree limbs to watch out for. The left side of the campground looked to be the better option. Most of the sites there were in a large field. Sites in both sections were mostly level, call them lumpy. But we had no problem leveling after taking time to position our MH. They have WiFi, but we were unable to connect to it from our site. OTA TV and Verizon cell were both good here. - Bob and Inga

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

The park is very well maintained. The pull thru site was large enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. There was a nice grassy area between each site and had a nice paver patio and picnic table. There is also a very nice fire pit. There are not amenities such as a pool, but there is an awesome dog park within walking distance. The only negative is that the patio/picnic table are adjacent to the neighboring sites sewer hookup. - Sunnedbum

I was concerned by some prior negative reviews of the pull thru spots but chose to stay in one anyway. I found my spot spacious, level, well maintained and easy to access. The shady back in spots looked great too. There is a really nice dog park about 100 yards away. I had a great time at this park and exploring Portsmouth and Newport. - Big Murr
