We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed it very much. Campground was quiet and clean. Interactions with park rangers was minimal but quick and friendly. No complaints at all. We were in site 182 which was in Area 4. From touring the park this seems like the nicest area although doesn't have full hook ups here. But the dump station was clean and easy to hit. I camped with my wife and 2 young kids. Nice area to bike around the campground. Playground was small but my son loved it. If you wanted to play basketball, too bad! The courts are gone. Will be back for sure. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

So this park fills up fast! So I would either camp before Memorial Day. Or call the week of and hope for a cancellation. Although that plan only works if you live nearby.

Great location, sites so-so, but bathrooms need updating and $0.25 per minute of showering??? That's ridiculous!! BTW, you can save the $9 Reserve America fee by doing a same day walk-up booking. $18 for state residents for a W/E site but $25 for a non-resident. Guess RI doesn't care to promote tourism. But lots of bunnies!! We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This year we stayed at area 1 and I must say we found it nicer than area 4 where we stayed two years ago. All the sites in area 1 which included ours were paved, level and longer than we would hope for. Our full hook ups were in good working order. Grounds are well maintained. The bathrooms/showers were in a desperate need of a complete makeover but the good news is next year they are supposed to be replaced. One correction I would like to make from my previous review is in area 2, site's 56 thru 64 and a few others scattered about are terribly unlevel, I would definitely avoid if you have a large RV. Geography at the campground is lightly wooded and somewhat level. Staff was professional and friendly. I would recommend this campground, we would return again.

You can ride your bikes from the campground right to the Block Island Ferry which is down the street and make it a day biking Block Island and seeing what the island has to offer!

This is an outstanding state park for camping. The sites in Area 1 and 2 are full hookup and all pull through. The park is exceptionally clean and well maintained. You are close to the Rhode Island beaches and Point Judith. Take the ferry to Block Island for a day trip. Good take. Highly recommended. BTW instate rates are $20 per night, Non residents pay $35. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I am going to give this state park campground a low rating due the the bathhouse and how disgusting it is at least in our loop. We are on a motorcycle towing a tent camper so bathroom facilities are important to us. The bathhouse structure looks ok from the outside but it is horrible in the inside. It was so bad that since we stayed only one night, we refused to shower there and will wait until our next destination. And the showers are coin operated too. The bathhouse is scheduled for renovation next year but that is not soon enough for us. We were on a full hook up site that was not level as many of the sites are not level so choose carefully (some are dramatically unlevel). Looked like many of the rigs were medium to small RVs though there are some sites that would fit bigger RVs. Picnic table is located on the grass and mud. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well and it appeared that there was no wifi which is normal for a state park. Utilities worked as advertised. Our site and access road was paved and our site was easy to pull in to. Campground was easy to locate. We would not stay here again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a real nice park, some areas have sewer hook ups, area 4 does not. The top area that we are in, is area 4. Paved roads but sites are 100% grass. For a state park the place is beautiful and we like it a lot: plenty of spacing, lots of vegetation and very private sites.

We have a large RV and not all the sites can fit us, but there are plenty that can. The problem is: you have to be somewhat familiar with the park to know.

We are getting our satellite, but again not all the sites will, perhaps 1/2. There is no honey wagon services, so you have to watch you water usage.

The rest rooms are not filthy, well maybe the showers, but they are very old and somewhat unkept. The showers are coin op, not something I want to step into at all. The bath houses need to be totally overhauled for sure, they are old and very tired. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Beaches are close by, but be warned: the cost to enter for out-of-state visitors is very high. Block Island ferry is just a mile down the road. Lots of good places to eat. Want a treat? Go to "Spain" restaurant just 1/2 mile down the road. There is a 14 mile RT cycle path not far away ( perhaps 4 miles in Narragansett Bay). Newport RI is a 45 mile trip away.

This park is so in demand that most of the sites sell out year to year with the same folks reserving far in advance. The roads and pads are paved, but the patio area is all grass. When we arrived at the park, it was mostly sold out. We found our site and after a little shrub trimming by me, we settled in. While hooking up I had a nice surprise. The on line web site lists only loop 1 as FHU, 2&3 as W&E, and 4 as dry camping. While hooking up I quickly realized that we had sewer as well! It appears that loop #2 had sewer added last year, and the web site has not been updated. The sites were good size, and some had trees and shrubs between the sites. Even though the park is on the coast, only a few sites in loop 1 could actually have a small view of the bay area off of the main body of water. The restrooms are clean but small, and may be handicapped accessible to some extent. The Verizon air card worked pretty well here. The prices were good too, we paid $35 a night for the FHU site. The worst part about this location is that we noted that some of the sites are extremely out of level. The campground is slightly terraced so one end of the site is higher than the other. If you get lucky enough to get a site here, try using Google earth to scope out the sites first. Our site, #51 was one of the more level sites. There were some pretty strict rules that applied to this park, although in the 4 days we were there, not one ranger or park employee came by or patrolled the park. One rule that almost no one cares about in the east, is "absolutely no parking on the grass". The other was "no alcohol permitted in the park". I did actually see folks not exactly adhering to either rule, but no one ever did anything about it. Either way, if you are going to stay in RI, this is a top choice to stay. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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 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.
