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

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

Nice little gem on the North End of the Newport peninsula. Our site is water and electric only, nicely level and next to a bathhouse. There are FHU sites, just none available during our stay. Power is steady and water pressure good. They have a couple of grey water dump spots throughout the campground so handling your grey water doesn't involve a hike to the sewer dump by the office. ATT and Verizon voice and data are adequate. Campground WiFi works okay. Park was quiet during the week, but gets noisy on the weekends. - moderate camper

This is a former U.S. Military MWR facility. When we made reservations, we weren't told that some (a few) sites had water, power, and sewer. We got a water and power only site. Sites are spacious, but the water and power hook-ups are on separate sides of your coach. And, even when parked in the center of your site, a reach to get to. It took 48 feet of my 50 foot water hose to reach the spigot. Site was dirt base and fairly level. Not many other campground options in the Newport area. - Joe-n-Doe

Great campground within 20mins of the newport mansions. This is a quiet campground with lots of trees and very shady camping spots. The grey water disposal spots are convenient since there are no sewer connections at the sites, only a dumping station near the exit. The sites are private with a lot of space between them. The roads are gravel and full of holes. The rate of $55 would be steep in any other area for the amenities offered, but this is Newport where a good burger can set you back $20 (with $1.50 for lettuce and tomato). We really enjoyed our stay here. - airstreamerSC

Location, Location, Location.
As an RV park, it is strictly a place to put the rig while exploring Newport and the area.
Spacious back-in sites. Clean grounds. Nothing else. 30 Amp power and water only. No dump station.
Must have a reservation.
Staff at main base rec center very helpful.
We will stay here again - mainly due to location and price. - PawPaw

I stayed here for 3 weeks (2 weeks then 1 week) while in school, it was very nice and clean. There are only 6 sites, plenty of room at the camp ground. Shares the facility with the softball fields, so the lights may be on at night. - calewjohnson

When making this reservation, we asked for a pull through and were told "OK". Arriving the sites were all back ins. Even so, we enjoyed the several days we were there. It was quiet, the views of the water/river very nice. Although sewage was only avail at a remote site we did not feel this difficult with our holding tanks. Travel to a convenience store is about a mile distant. TV service via analog antenna was good. Much of our time was spent touring the Newport area and this site was very accommodating for us. Should we be again in the area, we would definitely ask for a site here. We would have given it a higher rating, no sewage at the site. - MaryAnnFrederick

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

We had never visited the area before and wanted a place close to Newport. This is the place...
We had reserved a full hook up site. As others have posted, it is either cash or traveler check for payment. We arrived, paid and were given some local info and directions to our site. All the sites are grass. We were unable to get our 40' coach level and the rear wheels would need to be off the ground to make this happen which is not safe. Back to the office and was given an an electric only site on another part of the park. It was also back in and had much less slope. The coach still would not level, but we made due. The sites are all 30 amp. It is a no frills park and we knew that going into it. We were there to see the area and the park served us well.
If coming in via a motorhome, I would encourage the electric only sites as they are your best bet in getting as close to level as you can. - mummaiv

This is a bad place in so many ways. The sites are used mostly by old run down seasonal trailers. No sites are level. The rear of my trailer was 3 feet higher than the front in order to be level. All picnic tables are covered in black mold and the grass was high and patchy. No showers or bathrooms, or dog walk. There is a big open field but dogs are not allowed, no reason, just not allowed. They ONLY except cash! The only reason to be here is the location to Newport. Management's knowledge of this can only be their excuse for being so aloof and rude. - Gerry9

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

Nice Park as others have said the surface is dirt but plenty of shade cover. All sites are full hook ups and have 50 amp service. WIFI with Verizon was average but you can get by with it. Road into park as stated is part gravel and was very bad, pot holes everywhere and rough. Park is central to allot to be done in thew area from day trips to Boston or out to the cape. Also we did day trips into Rhode Island from this location. Apart from the road we enjoyed our two weeks there and will go back in the future. - M5Adventures

Very comfortable and spacious sites. They are dirt, so rainy weather could be problematic. Woodsy setting. Plenty of space between sites for use of fire ring and picnic table. Nice staff. Newly renovated large pool. It is a bit of a drive to the mid-Cape area. No problem with entrance road as cited by others. Renewed our interest in the Thousand Trails system. - RJ Massachusetts

The rate quoted is a Passport America rate. We stayed here because of the PA discount and the proximity of the campground to friends.
This campground is a former KOA (you can tell by the camp office building). It is gated, upon arrival you have to call the office via the microphone to gain access. You are then told to find a site, then come back to the office and tell them which one you took.
The road leading into the campground is paved, but turns into dirt. Upon reaching the campground, the gated main entrance is paved, but the remainder of the the roads are sandy dirt and full of pot holes. The area has a lot of trees and a sandy soil....which of course gets tracked into your rig.
The campground has full hookups (Water, electric, sewer). The is no cable. There is WiFi, at least close to the camp office where we were. It was capped at 1 Mbps and would frequently dropped out. Frustration led to us using the MiFi. Verizon wireless was 2 bars of 4G if I put my phone in the window. Otherwise it was 3G.
There are a good number of seasonal sites and park homes in the campground. We stayed in October, I was surprised to see the place about 75% full.
This was an average campground that could be so much more. The roads needed grading....we had a 2" rain storm while there which lead to huge puddles in the roads. The junk laying around the camp office could cleared out. The adult lounge looks like a construction trailer.
If in the area to visit our friends, we would stay here again. But that is the only reason. - cmgoeke

We had a wonderful time hiking around the well marked trails and swimming in the lake. The sites varied in level but were fine for our little travel trailer. There was enough to do without leaving the campground for simple bike riding, hiking, and swimming. It is really nicely located for day trips to Plymouth and Cape Cod. Park Rangers were visable making the campground safer for the single camper. I would recommend this State Park to anyone for a simple trip or group rally. - sleepless

This KOA chooses not to enforce its own rules. I contacted management, and they were nothing but apologists for the bad behavior of the known rule breakers. Plan on being woken from sleep many times at night, due to Harley riders revving their hogs, then speeding through the park at night, even after the 11 PM "quiet hours" cutoff. I was told that if these individuals were excluded "all I'd have left is a bunch of Priuses and tents." I was told that 20-25 campers have Harleys every year on Labor Day weekend, so nothing will be done. Everyone deserves to enjoy their camping experience, but not at the expense of others. There are plenty of parks in this area. Pick one where your peaceful enjoyment is a priority. - Pdx discovery

This is like 2 different campgrounds. Last year we were in the back section which was fine but away from everything. This trip we were in a backin site in the front section. We were right in the middle of the activities. Since our grandson was with us this worked out great. We were near the jumping pad, ice cream social, train rides, mini golf and pool. Our location made it real nice. Wifi was good as were the hook ups with great water pressure. We found the campground to be extremely quiet and enjoyable. Staff was great and friendly but could do a little better cleaning sites as our fire pit had trash in it when we arrived. Unfortunately for us it is bee season and they swarmed the site when ever we were going to eat or someone opened a soda. We had to eat a few meals inside to get away from them. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed here for 4 nights visiting family in Taunton and touring Historic Plymouth. Quite a large campground. Our site was very spacious and in a nice part of the campground. We had a private patio, with table and chairs plus our own swing (glider). Although we only have 30 amp, the site was equipped with 50 amp. Water, sewer, wifi and cable included. We would stay here again. - Jack 1939
