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. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Operated by Newport Naval base. Military or DOD may use. This is a great location for visiting the Newport R.I. area. Located off the base, but adjacent to a base recreation area, backs up to a beautiful view of Narragansett bay. There is a Porta Potty, any other facility requires a several mile drive. Great Base fitness center on base. I down graded the service because they do not keep the website up to date, and locations and phone contacts are not current. Requires a little investigative work. All 6 sites are back in, widely spaced, long, and easy to enter. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Apparently there is (or was) a lot of money in Newport, RI. There is a historical area that is full of overwhelmingly extravagant mansions including a couple Vanderbilt mansions that can be toured. Most of these mansions are lived in by private citizens - but some can be toured. There is a trolley that tours the area and gives commentary. We didn't do that - in fact we stumbled on these mansions by mistake and really glad we did. Also, stop at a couple of marinas. The yachts are amazing.

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. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

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.

A friend that's retired military and traveling with us to Newport Naval Station got us the reservation. Sites are all back in and overlook the water but don't have water access. Sites are very roomy. All are gravel parking pads with grass all around. Location is very quiet. It's about a mile drive to any services or stores. This makes a great place to explore the Newport area. Water pressure is very high - use a pressure regulator. Power was good and the 50 amp nice on hot days. If you need a dump station there's one a few miles away for a $10 fee. TV reception is good for the Providence stations. We camped at Carr Point Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
