This campground is not suitable for big rigs. Way overpriced for a poor campground. First there was no warning on the website or when I called for reservation about taking Exit 5 not Exit 3 on I-95. Coming from the south my GPS had me take Exit 3 which ended up being a difficult series of narrow roads with many overhanding branches hitting my RV to get to the park. Interior roads are paved and most sites are dirt. Some sites have a small concrete pad suitable only for a small trailer. There is no cable on most sites, trees prevent satellite access and no wifi at the sites (hot spots at pool and clubhouse). They have a security gate. None of the amenities - pool or clubhouse were open. When I arrived I was given site 77 whose pad was barely able to get my front and dual wheels on the pad and tag axle wheels were off the pad. Could not get very level. The electric power at this site keep tripping my RV on high voltage so I packed up and left after one night. Park is not very convenient to Newport or Providence. Will not come back. - Tom Willing

This campground was also highly rated and reported to have many amenities. Well this campground would also qualify as a very family friendly place, as long as your rig is not too big. Many of this campground sites are long term/seasonal campers. We made a reservation for this campground back in January when planning the trip. We specifically provided our RV size and that we requested FHU and a "lightly treed" site. They assured her that it was no problem, and we made the reservation for a week stay. Upon arrival that wasn't exactly what we found. The sites we were given was up at the end of a long narrow road in a cave of trees. When I got backed in we quickly figured out that the site was too small for the motor home to fit on the pad. The site had a cement RV pad that was on a site that was uphill from the road. Only the pad itself was semi level, and the dirt at either end dropped off quickly. No matter where I put the RV, one set of jacks was not on the pad, and into the very off camber dirt. We went back to the office to discuss the issue with the staff (which were very friendly by the way). They looked at their campground map and declared that the site was "too small" for our size rig. With few options available, we took another site, W&E only. I dodged some tree limbs to pull in, and found it too was pretty off camber in both directions. I was able to block the jacks to get us level, but we still were not overly pleased with the site. This one backed up to a large green moss covered water hole, and was next to the play area and campground store which made our site the "pass through" for all the campground traffic to go through. We quickly decided to cut the stay down to 3 days. The site fee included a $3 a day pet fee, which I think is excessive. The restrooms were clean, but old and not handicapped accessible. WiFi was offered for checking email only. The cell signal here was also very weak, so the Verizon air card struggled as well. - SargeW

This is a clean campground within an easy 35-40 minute drive to Newport, RI. We opted for a 30 amp, full hookup site, as their 50 amp sites don't have cable. Not all sites have sewer - only W&E. Our back-in site was spacious and level, but no shade. Most of their sites do have shade. Friendly and easy check-in. There's a lot for kids to do and have fun. Lots of space to walk the dog. The cable was really good but there was no wi-fi at the site. Good Verizon cell service. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

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

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

We stayed off-season, just after Labor Day. This campground has LOTS of amenities and many seasonal campers. We like the added touch of having an escort show us to the site (large park and it's nice to go to the correct site on the first try when you have a camper, trailer or RV). For a family, this park is awesome. So much to do for little ones, tweens and teens alike. Train rides (under 10), mini golf, pool, bball, bocci, shuffleboard...so much! Full service rec center with ice cream socials and pancake breakfasts as well as pool tables and games. Restrooms were clean, in fact we saw them being serviced 4 times in our barely 2 night stay. Showers need some updating, for sure. Tight and dingy. The park has a heavy seasonal base but, unlike some parks we've been to, these folks were very friendly and went out of their way to say hello. One fellow camper even gave us a ride in his golf cart so we wouldn't have to carry two loads of wood to our site (quite a walk from the office). Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great campground for those who like lots of activity. A little big and busy for us - but that's just our preference and no slight on this campground. - CDG

Bathrooms on weekend were bad but got better during the week. Rec hall closed during the week so access to sport equpment limited but managed to find someone to get it for us. Mini golf needs cleaning, moss growing on holes. Pool great and clean. Store not open posted hours. Site was better than we had anticipated based on reviews but some are small. Needs some activities during the week for the rate. Also even though my "kid" is over 18 still a kid in our family bit had to pay $7 / night extra even though 3 kids are allowed in the site price. There is nothing in the campground to justify the additional fee for a child over 18 being additional fee. We enjoyed our stay because we did a lot of sight seeing. Spent evenings and one afternoon at campground. Only first night (Sat) had activities. Pleasant people. Nice landscaping in most sites. - MAfamily4

Used to camp here in the 90's with kids. Not much has changed since then. The pool was redone this winter, which was nice. The bathrooms are very old and tired, in need of tile and a good cleaning. The roads are very small for a motorhome. Staff was friendly and very helpful. - campinggal16

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

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

I chose this campground because I wanted to be able to make easy day trips to both Newport and Providence and this proved to be well situated for that. There are gravel driveways and grassy sites which included a picnic table. The transient sites are in a large open area with mostly pull through sites. We had a 30 amp electric, full hookup site. They offer free WiFi that worked very well for us. There is a cell tower within sight so our AT&T signal was strong, around -77 dBm. There is a pool, although we didn't make use of it. The bathroom was OK, somewhat rustic but generally clean, however, it could use more light. The owners seem to be part time and are absent for hours at a time and may take some time to even return your call. We paid $40 per night. They accept cash or check only. - Coopsecondact

Small dogs allowed but the campground brochure clearly states "NO DOG WALKING". Full hook up 30 amp sites, level pull throughs. Many seasonals, although they are all friendly. About ten miles to shopping and restaurants. Nice pool, quiet. Brochure also states no air conditioners and no electric heaters. Some open sites, some shady sites. Good AT&T cell phone signal. Cash/checks only, no credit cards. - RV Vagabonds

It would be near perfect if it had sewer and Wifi. The sites are in an open field. Each site is well packed gravel, level (without weeds and stuff growing in them) surrounded by well cut grass. They are very long and the back end of the RV's are about 50 feet in from some bushes that are right on the water. There is probably 30 feet between each RV (only 6 sites). Lots of elbow room. There is a well traveled road at the entrance, but it isn't bothersome. The base is only a couple miles up the road with a very nice NEX and Commissary. This is a nice base as it is home to the War College. High ranking officers training to be higher ranking officers. Newport is a very nice town with beautiful marinas. - jomark

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

We had a Good Sam discount, but it was very expensive for what you get in an RV campground. Monday through Thursday is $65, and Friday through Sunday is $75/night! We had 50 AMP electric, water, sewer, and cable. We did not use cable, but had many Over The Air Channels. The staff at Melville Ponds is very helpful and nice people. We were under the shade trees. The site was on a slant, so our 5th wheel tires on one side were off the ground to get level. It was a quiet RV campground. It is 5 miles north of Newport. There is a small laundry with 2 washers, and 2 dryers that was inexpensive. There is no pool or activity room, but they have a small playground for the kids. We did not use the restrooms or showers, so we cannot comment on them. It was the most convenient and close RV park to the Navy Base for our activities. It was just too expensive for what they provide, but I guess they can get away with it due to lack of competition. - Lindy White

Great location, great spots, great staff, high price. Level spots, 50 amp, pull thru, patio, fire pit, good space. Great location for trips to Jamestown, Fall River & Newport. We really like this place, just wish the price was more inline with other campgrounds.
Take the entrance off Main Street at the middle school. If you enter from anywhere else, you end up on a long dirt, washboard road. It will dust up and shake you up. - KodiTzu

We stayed one night in site #218, a back-in site with W/E/S. The roads aren't overly tight but the way they are laid out and where the trees are, this site is more of a pain to get into than it should be. The spot itself is fine. Note that despite what their website says, ALL of their sites have full hook ups. This isn't a fancy park, but clean and fine for passing through. Bathhouses, laundry, and grounds were all clean. Their internet was excellent. We had full LTE cell service (AT&T). The signage on the way in leaves you hanging, but we figured it out anyways. It brings you in along a long bumpy road. Google Map's directions, on the other hand, takes you by a school, but it brings you to the campground with only a little of the bumpy dirt road. This is what I'd recommend. - texasAUtiger

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
