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

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

The campground is in the Newport area, at the end of a point about as far from civilization as it's possible to get in that part of the world. It's an old army camp, with bunkers from WWII. There isn't really anything to do in the state park except for a playground, basketball court, and a couple of tennis courts, but it's close to several beaches in the Newport area, and Newport itself. We sat out the tail end of hurricane Michael in Area 4, which is an older loop near the entrance. Area 4 has more mature landscaping and more privacy, but the sites are gravel (the newer areas are asphalt), and the drainage is terrible. This might not matter in normal circumstances, but in a deluge, we would have preferred better drainage. The drainage in the newer areas seemed to be much better. - AnnP

Area 1 is definitely the biggest, most spacious loop with FHU. And along the refuge. Such a good time we're returning in a few weeks. Yes, they require proof of car and RV registration and pet vaccines, so be prepared. - mac2school

There are 4 areas with different hookups. We had w/s/30amp electric in area 2 on a paved, sloped site. Area 1 sites are much nicer (longer, more level), but there is no bathhouse. Our site required quite a bit of leveling. Area 2 is hilly and very pretty. The roads were paved. The bathhouse seems new, but very poorly cleaned. You need quarters to shower & the showers had clumps of hair that were never cleaned during our extended stay. When they mowed, they did not blow off the sidewalks at the bathhouses so all that grass was tracked inside. There is no garbage can in the ladies room. - R&S

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

Customer service was snippy, unfriendly. Water pressure non- existent. Can't shower in own unit, showers are a fee. No gray water drain. Cable and pool down for the weekend, no discount. Charge for adult children. Only one vehicle allowed on site. - Fuller

This is a large, very attractive campground. There's a good mix of sun and shade. The camp sites are wide, though mine some somewhat skimpy fore and aft. What will bring parents is the wide range of activities for kids, not only a swimming pool, but a water slide, and much more. Getting there from Connecticut was short but concerning. My GPS routed me over roads that conscientious traffic planners would not want heavy rigs to drive regularly, and that includes the Gardiner Road that services the campground itself. Perhaps if Google Maps told me more about the roads it routes users onto, I might have avoided some of them. But from the driving I did in the state, it appears that Rhode Island officials have made the decision that they can't afford both to pay themselves competitive salaries and to maintain the roads. My site was satisfactory. It was wide enough for me to back into despite the tree and boulder right across the lane. I did have to park my trailer over the remains of a campfire that had been built there instead of in the fire ring. To be sure the grass and gravel site does not make a clear distinction between the part for trailers and the part for people. If I were the kind of camper that spent a lot of time outside in front of the RV, I would have found that burned ground annoyingly ugly. But I'm not, so for the most part, I didn't notice it. I would have thought that management would have noticed and corrected the burn. But I got the impression that the staff doesn't think along those lines. They proved more surly than friendly. They even have a sign next to the office door that says, in effect, "Don't bother me unless it's very important." A questionable way to greet customers, don't you think? - Jim Fulton

I cant say anything more that hasn't been already been said about the beauty and serenity of Charlestown Breachway, it is paradise with a slight downside...The rules of this state park clearly states NO ANIMALS. Don't get me wrong, I love animals and have dogs of my own. We have been camping at the Breachway for 40 or so years, and then about 7 or so years ago campers started showing up with their pet dogs. Some say they are therapy dogs. Some are but most are not. Each year it seems more and more dogs are allowed in. I'm sure there are pet friendly campgrounds around, go there if you have pets. The state needs to enforce this rule better at Charlestown Breachway. I haven't yet and don't need to step into a pile of poop which I have seen and avoided...enough of that rant...everything else there is perfection, beaches are raked daily, the park is always free of litter, everyone is friendly, car parking is tight during the summer months..as always, we will be back again and again. - Gary gmoney

Location, location, location. That's what Charlestown Breachway is all about. Hard to beat being RIGHT on the ocean for $20/night. We camped in our Roadtrek and kept the back doors open at night to listen to the surf and catch the breeze. Beautiful. Fellow campers are very friendly. Convenient to beach and kayaking/fishing. Yes, space is VERY tight. This is not a campground but rather a parking lot with space for your camper & table/chairs/awning. Just know going into it that you are here for the location. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our stay involved 2 site transfers (best we could do given how last minute we booked). Check out is 11am. Neither of the campers leaving the site we were moving to were out by 11 but the staff worked with us to get them moving. Now let's talk generator use. It's a problem. Generator use is allowed 8am-8pm and there are folks who run it the WHOLE time. There are no rules as to where you can place your portable unit. The guy next to us put his at the rear of his coach, which was right outside our coach. Very loud & gasoline smell ALL DAY. Some regulations on generator use would be very welcome. Have 2 hour windows for generator use would be much better. A few people brought their home generators to use and those were particularly loud. Rules in this area need to change. But truly, that is the only downside to this place. We'll be back! - CDG

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here. - Bob and Inga

Bathrooms showers toilets disgusting Black Mold all over showers and the curtain. Someone needs to tell the State of RI that Black Mold kills. Tree limbs are are still not trimmed from the last time we were here. I will say that there was staff doing some trash pickup which I though was a positive. The woman at check in was very nice as well. The lake was beautiful and was great to swim in. Rhode Island rakes in a lot of loot from the campers. They need to step up their game and catch up with the rest of the campgrounds. - tinman

I would have given this park a perfect score if it had hookups. It is huge with many things to keep kids busy. Very rustic with lots of pine trees. Any size rv can camp here. Shaded pine trees keep camper cool. - Bjb1775

This is a 750 site campground, but you only feel the size when you look at the map. If you look at the park on Google Earth you will just see trees, so expect shade. The sections are laid out with large fairly close campsites in the center, and a number of spread out sites on the perimeter tucked into the woods. In our loop, most sites pitched to the lake except the top row. Since this was designed for tents, most sites have a pitch to them, so leveling an RV can be a challenge. Our site had rocks and stumps to navigate, but we did OK. Burlingame is on a lake - East Beach (Ocean) is a short drive away. The first lot you come to (at East Beach) is owned by the town and is $20. The second lot is state owned and is a quarter mile down the dirt road and is $6. The reason for the low rating is that the state has kids all over the place in golf carts, but that is where they stay. This is primarily a tenter's campground, so the restrooms are used heavily. There are 6 restroom/shower buildings for the 750 sites so you can imagine the restrooms are used allot. Each restroom/shower has 2 stalls and 2 showers. Toilets are often plugged up, and you don't know which showers don't work till you plug in the coins. (you don't even know which shower you are turning on when you plug in the coins). - ScottfromSilver

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

We were in site 138 with our 40 ft 5th wheel, very difficult to get in to and we couldn't back into the site all the way or our rv would have been over the neighbors fire pit in the back. Site was uneven and extremely narrow so we couldn't even use our fire pit since it was under our awning. Barely room to park the truck and once again it was pulled in right next to the fire pit. The dog park (small and large area) was so small that my two medium size labradoodles would not be able to even run and chase a ball. Although, there was a nice rec field down in the back and never anyone there in the morning so I took them down there to play. The pool/hot tub/water park area was very nice as was the tennis/pickleball court. People in the office were very nice. There were some nicer, longer, wider sites in the park and some pull-throughs that were a good length. I would go back to this park if I could stay in a different site. - DoodleMom

Nice large park with good level sight. Laundry was very reasonable $1.50 load, dryer $1.00 but only three machines which is not enough for such a large park. Sites were gravel with grass on the patio. The road in dirt so your vehicle get very dusty going up and down. Didn't use there WiFi. About 15 minute drive to beautiful Westerly and an hour to Newport. - Aussie Chums

We're here as part of a Caravan. Newer park, the roads are rough, gravel. The sites are gravel and grass. Decent spacing between lots. Appears that seasonal have all the premier spots that back up to the trees. Full hook up, lots of amenities, in a few years when trees have grown up it'll be a nicer park. - smitty12

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.

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
