Do not even think of trying to enter or check in before exactly at 1:00pm. Staff was very rude and unpleasant. After check in was accomplished stay was pleasant.
Access from major highway is easy. Interior roads are paved with all campsite pads paved. Easy to navigate in the campground and very big rig friendly. Area 1 is the most big rig friendly with all sites being pull through with some being more level than others. Utilities placed in easily accessible position. Many of sites are waterfront or waterview. Some sites could be difficult to get level on if in Big Rig.
Many restaurants in the area. No Wifi but Verizon signal is decent. Satellite access was ok with some trees maybe posing an issue in some sites. All campsites have fire rings strategically placed. Biggest issue is that even though pads are straight, the grassy area beside of pad is severely sloped making it almost impossible to level a picnic table on many of the sites.
Did not use restrooms. Park has some historical value. Access from major highway easy with all interior roads being paved. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
Very strict on check in time, even though my site was empty and it was an off season Monday, made me wait until 1 pm. A little too strict for my liking. Welcome to Rhode Island. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is near Point Judith Rhode Island. It consists of three areas (1,2,&3). Area 1 is nearest the water, area 2 & 3 further inland. The campground is very well maintained. The best sites, parking wise are in area 1. The sites in area 2 tend to be slanted. Area 3 is tent only. It appears that all sites now have water, electric and sewer. We were in area 2, spot 20. Site not recommended since the waste stack is uphill from the site and stuff has a hard time flowing uphill even in RI.
Sites in this CG are hard to come by, some requiring a reservation a year in advance. The best sites (area 1 along the water) never seem to be available no matter when you try to book. Nonetheless a highly recommended CG. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights, had to reserve via Reserve America that added an extra $9 fee! The campground is making improvements in 3 out of the 4 areas (more electric sites). It was cold and windy (they have a wind turbine that does make some noise, but less than traffic) and the start of the season. Regulars who come here say that this is quite a destination campground and they needed to reserve a year ahead if you want to come during the summer period. The site we had was level, ground cover, elec. and water. Not too far from beach and ocean activities. Recommend! We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:
About half a mile walking distance there's a tavern. A beach is about a mile away that you can walk to. Plenty to see and do if you're willing to drive a short distance.

This is a campground we really enjoyed. Place is divided into four areas. We stayed in area 4 which was water electric only. Most of the sites in our area were private, above average in size, level and had beautiful native landscaping. We had good signal on our Verizon cell. All the roads in the campground that we saw were paved and the campground geography was lightly wooded and somewhat level. In addition the 3 other areas of the campground we didn’t see anything that was over the top as far as not enough space between sites or any sites being excessively unlevel. One issue that we found unacceptable were the bathrooms and showers, noticed only the toilets and sinks were cleaned while we looked at the same dirt and grime on the bathroom floors for our entire stay. Also the bathrooms/showers were in a desperate need of a complete makeover. This all said we though area 4 was the nicest part of the campground so if you can deal with out the full hookups I would recommend that area, we would return again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Fishermen's Memorial is the worst state park we ever visited. Sites crowded together. Air conditioning not allowed (but you can run your generator until 10 pm). Prominent No Alcohol policy; sites crowded together. No 037 almost impossible to level. Avoid if you have slides. Park is close to local fishing and super restaurants. Seemed to be mostly seasonal users. We left a day early. Didn't bother to overcome strict "no refunds" policy. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
Cheapest camping around. No amenities though. Bathrooms have never been updated. They are the same as they were 30+ years ago. Rarely cleaned, spiders and cobwebs everywhere. Sites not trimmed back so you may have branches to deal with. For $18 you give up a lot of what regular campgrounds offer. If they did the bathrooms over it would be so much better. There was work done over the winter but it is not evident. No change from last year, when they said all electrical would be upgraded. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We had a reservation for area 4, but the site had too much grade and we could not level. We were able to move into area 2 where there was 1 site that worked for us. Sites really vary as far as being level. The site descriptions are not the best. You really need to know the sites here. As reviewed, this is a somewhat dated park, but the location is great. Verizon broadband and TV via bat wing were both good. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
We were disappointed with our annual trip to Fishermen's Memorial State Park this year. The park is doing some major construction to upgrade and add more full hookup sites for 2015. We were aware of this when we reserved our site. However, when we checked in we were informed that they were having problems with the electric service in Area 1, but the ranger was able to correct it and all should be well. We pulled in and plugged in that is when our problems began. Our surge protector caught on fire. Fortunately, we were able to put it out. By then the entire row had lost power. The staff was very helpful and did find us another site for the night in Area 2 with power. We stayed for a week and row 70-75 did not have the power situation corrected in Area 1 during that time. Since there were other power problems in Area 1, the office was handing out printed information on how to obtain refunds from the state. In addition, we were inundated with ticks. Every night I removed several from our dogs and found some crawling around the RV. When I mentioned this to the office staff, they said the ticks were very bad this year and the staffer had even had a few on her. Normally, we love this campground and the surrounding area but did feel that do to the electrical problems and ticks they deserved a lower score for this year.

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. Our fellow campers were very friendly. Our site was a water/electric site. It had a curve in the middle of the site and sloped, but I was able to level our 32' motor home with just a few blocks. The site was paved and grass with nice privacy hedges and trees. Field stone fire pit. Grounds are nice for dog walking and bike riding. The bathrooms were dated, but clean. We were told new bath houses were scheduled to be built for next season. You needed quarters to take a shower and there was a change machine at the front office. I noticed a sign in the front office prohibiting the use of AC. This was not a problem for us because the nights were cool, we had to run our furnace, and there was a nice cool breeze during the day. We will return to this campground in the future, but only in the spring or fall because during the summer we need AC for medical reasons.

The wide variety of sites at this park can accommodate campers from tents to big rigs. Paved interior roads are a bit narrow, many sites are curved or not level but others are generously sized with privacy provided by ample landscaping. The reservation system offers a lot of information but the high occupancy rate allows little flexibility once you’ve arrived. Electric and water were good, discharge of grey water without a sewer hookup is allowed, no wi-fi, no cable, good AT&T phone and data service, some TV reception via antenna, mostly satellite friendly, limited road noise during the day that quiets down at night, playgrounds tennis and basketball facilities are available. Use of air conditioners is not allowed. Alcohol is not allowed. We would stay here again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice state park with excellent access to the ferry which travels to Block Island which is one of the places we wanted to visit and not to be missed. Roads into and through the park were paved and sites were dirt and fairly level. Although, jacks were required for many. The pull-through sites were long and wide with lots of room for parking, and spacing between sites was large with tall shrubbery between each - lots of privacy here. Each site had a good table and fire pit. There was some road noise from nearby highway 108, but we did not find it overly bothersome because it is car traffic and not for large trucks. The 30-amp power was adequate and water pressure was strong. There was no laundry, Wi-Fi or sewer available, but a dump station was located near the entrance to our section. Unfortunately, the bathrooms and showers were a disappointment. In area 4 where we stayed, they were old and not very clean. The pay showers were not ones that I would want to use unless I had to. Grocery stores and other shopping were about 3.5 miles away, and lots of good restaurants could be found at nearby Galilee Harbor. I am rating this park high based on the fact that we did not use the bathrooms or showers, and we do not care about Wi-Fi, laundry or sewer at the site. Other folks who want these things may be disappointed, but we really liked this place and hope to come back again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
First time we have stayed here in many years. Nice park with long (50') pull through sites. Roads are plenty wide enough for most vehicles. The turn into our site was a little tight for the truck and 5er, but once in it was fine. We were just getting away for the weekend but had a great time and met nice people. One note - make sure you leave enough room for rig and tow vehicle in your site - no tires (not even a little) on the grass. Full hook up site would have been nice. Careful as some of the pull through sites have a curve in the middle of them. This could be a problem for larger rigs. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We were looking forward to this campground because it looked like it was right on the water. We're on a 6-month trip and don't plan too far ahead so we weren't surprised when we didn't get a waterfront spot (we booked that morning), but waterfront wasn't really waterfront anyway. There were a lot of reeds and bushes blocking the water view. The only thing that the proximity to the water really did was guarantee that there were a lot of mosquitoes around. We ended up with site #9 in Area 2, which is the loop that has water and electric but no sewer. Our spot was on an end and fairly level. However, a lot of the spots in this loop were not level. Our neighbors were fairly loud and stayed up late talking outside around the campfire (not the park's fault, but still impacted our experience). There were also a lot of rules that seemed unnecessary. We would probably stay here again if we were in the area and needed an overnight, but otherwise wouldn't seek it out.

I loved our site, it was very private and big. They have bushes that give you a secluded feeling on some of the sites. The bathrooms were very clean. Showers are .75 cents for the first 3 minutes and .25 cents for every minute after that. Make sure you bring lots of quarters. This campground is near the middle of everything. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about everything. I hope that they put in a small camp-store soon so you don't have to leave the park for ice and wood. The park offers a great playground, tennis courts, volleyball and a big area for anything else you would like to do. We would definitely go back.
