The campground is in the Newport area, at the end of a point about as far from civilization as it's possible to get in that part of the world. It's an old army camp, with bunkers from WWII. There isn't really anything to do in the state park except for a playground, basketball court, and a couple of tennis courts, but it's close to several beaches in the Newport area, and Newport itself. We sat out the tail end of hurricane Michael in Area 4, which is an older loop near the entrance. Area 4 has more mature landscaping and more privacy, but the sites are gravel (the newer areas are asphalt), and the drainage is terrible. This might not matter in normal circumstances, but in a deluge, we would have preferred better drainage. The drainage in the newer areas seemed to be much better. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Area 1 is definitely the biggest, most spacious loop with FHU. And along the refuge. Such a good time we're returning in a few weeks. Yes, they require proof of car and RV registration and pet vaccines, so be prepared. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

There are 4 areas with different hookups. We had w/s/30amp electric in area 2 on a paved, sloped site. Area 1 sites are much nicer (longer, more level), but there is no bathhouse. Our site required quite a bit of leveling. Area 2 is hilly and very pretty. The roads were paved. The bathhouse seems new, but very poorly cleaned. You need quarters to shower & the showers had clumps of hair that were never cleaned during our extended stay. When they mowed, they did not blow off the sidewalks at the bathhouses so all that grass was tracked inside. There is no garbage can in the ladies room. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We headed over the bridge to Newport & took an interesting tour. Then we went on the famous Cliff Walk. The bridge is a $4 toll each way. Down the road from the campground is a casual place called Iggy's that serves a variety of seafood including lobster rolls, clamcakes & doughboys. It's worth a try!

We were in a site along Galilee Escape Rd., which is noisy with traffic. Sites away from the road are preferable. (See map.) Area 4 is older, with more privacy between sites but no sewer hookups. Area 2 is more open, rolling and grassy; parking areas are paved but some require a foot or so of blocks to get your rig level. The best sites are in area 1 along the water; they can be (and are) booked 12 months ahead. Even though we were close to the road, it was obscured by lush growth of vines and shrubs, so our site felt very private. The campground is a WWII military installation, with an old observation tower, gun emplacements, etc. The playground has tennis courts. A water tower is nearby, encircled with Verizon cell antennas; reception is great. They insist on seeing a rabies certificate for your pet, even if it will not be going outside. You are asked to show your driver's license and RV registration on arrival. This campground is close to the Atlantic, so it gets a good cooling sea breeze most days in the summer. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Galilee, RI is within a couple of miles, easily accessed by bike from the campground. George's and Champlin's restaurants there offer good waterfront seafood meals with outdoor decks and indoor seating, too. The Block Island ferry terminal is in Galilee. You could camp at Fisherman's, bike to the ferry, spend the day exploring beautiful Block Island, and catch a late afternoon ferry back. The regular ferry takes about an hour each way for the crossing.

Overall Rating:

The various loops ("Areas") in this campground are quite different from each other, which can really affect a review. We stayed in Area 2 in a 40-foot motorhome with tow car. When we booked online the site we picked (#9) was listed as 60 feet long, but our motorhome barely fit on the site and we had to park our tow car diagonally on the grass in front. Our site was also very un-level, but we were able to get mostly level by using a LOT of leveling blocks under our front wheels and jacks. Other sites in Area 2 were extremely sloped, and nothing but a very short travel trailer had even a chance of getting level. The sites were a little cramped for a state park, but more spacious than most commercial campgrounds. Area 1 was much nicer, all the sites were level, most were over 100 feet long, and very spacious. There's also a nice tenting loop and an older looking RV loop near the entrance. With that info out of the way, the campground was very pretty, nicely wooded, yet close to stores, restaurants, and other amenities. It's about a 45 minute drive to downtown Providence. It's a pretty large campground so we found plenty of places to walk our dog. Verizon was fast, AT&T had 2 bars but worked well. Staff was friendly. We'd gladly return, but only if we can get into Area 1 or speak to someone to find out the quality of available sites in Area 2. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 99 in Area 1 which had full hookups and nice, spacious sites. The views were beautiful and our site was huge! This was a nice location for visiting attractions around RI, although we were only there for 2 days just passing through. We did make it over to Newport to hike on the Cliff Walk which was gorgeous. They ask for a lot of documentation when checking in like copies of all vehicle registrations and pet vaccinations. I haven't been anywhere that needed quite so much information. Just be prepared. Also they do not allow you to use your A/C which I thought was strange, but thankfully it was chilly when we were there anyway. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile all worked well there. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed October 2017 We stayed in a motorhome and found this to be a spectacular state park. The sites were roomy and came with a spectacular view, one of the benefits of travelling in the fall season ... choice of sites. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The site we had was level and had the hookups conveniently located. All services worked without a problem. The location is perfect for exploring the area, and there is lots to see. Coming and going from the park is monitored, making for a safe place for all the gear that gets hauled out. The park covers a large area and it must be quite a site when it is full. Cannot comment on the park facilities as we did not use them. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Ok...we drove in from Massachusetts...we had a 40ft motorhome...made the reservations about year in advance...When we got to our site, there was a hill right in the middle of the space...no way we could level it...there were no more spaces available...there were 3 spaces we had reserved and none were usable. We didn't even try to set up camp, they did credit our credit card, but never did get our hundred dollar deposit back. Highly suggest you Verify with a body at the campground whether the site is flat or not. Campground was clean and looked to be near water, but we never saw it. Also, very strict on check-in time. Near town and nice area. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived at this park mid afternoon and checked in quickly. Staff was friendly and welcoming. We found our site in Area #2 with easy to follow directional signs. We passed very nice looking tennis and basketball courts. In addition, there is a large wind turbine on the property that can, at times, be noisy. Our site was very narrow. We didn't have much room to set-up our chairs before the slope to a knoll started. The knoll was part of our site and did provide a nice spot for our fire ring and picnic table. The bad part was when it rained the sand from the knoll washed onto our outdoor rug covering it in mud. We did find a level area on our paved pull-through site that didn't require any leveling. Be cautious as many sites in Area #2 are severely unlevel. Overall this is a really nice, clean campground. We had good water pressure, electrical service, and sewer (an added bonus at a State park!). For the sites not offering sewer, there is a dump station available. You can walk down to Area #1 for water views. There is a "look-out" area near the entrance with beautiful views. The bathhouses/restrooms here are old and very outdated, however, they were found clean and usable. It is coin-op showers (.75) that seemed a bit steep for the time received. We showered quickly. Overall, it was a quiet weekend stay with no rowdy groups that we could hear. All in all, it's a great park and we look forward to staying here again. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

The problems started a month before arrival when I tried to reserve a site for a few nights. The website said you could only reserve a site for 4 nights or more in a row but there were only vacancies for 3 or less nights. I called and was told all of the vacant sites would be released at 8 AM the next morning and to be on line at 8 AM. I was on line before 8 AM and the site I was planning to reserve showed 2 nights already gone so there was only 1 night left. I reserved that night, there is a $9 reservation fee. Website shows check in at 1 PM and it is adhered to. Planned to go and tour some mansions but that was not possible because we weren't allowed to check in before 1. The guard at the gate gave us directions to a park where we could go for over an hour so that was helpful. Many sites are not level enough for a big rig and the left front mirror was deep into the shrubs and the motor home was in the shrubs with the right side pulling out of site 32. The rules (of which there are many) state "the use of air conditioning is NOT allowed". Good thing it was only in the low 70's when we were there. There were at least 10 empty sites in our section but the website showed 100% full. People are playing games reserving and paying for sites but not showing up until the night they plan to arrive. You must bring registrations for all vehicles, your driver's license, name all occupants and rabies certificate for check in. We camped at Fishermen's State Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We paid the RI non-resident fee of $35 and $25 per night plus the $9 reservation fee (3 times). This SP has had some major improvements made a couple of years ago. The utilities in Areas 1 and 2 were upgraded with sewer being added to Area 2. These two areas are $35 per night. Area 4 is water and electric only and remains fairly rustic, but has some nice large private sites. These sites are $25 per night. Area 3 is canvas only for tenters and small popup units. Areas 2, 3 & 4 have bath houses, Area 1 does not. Sites vary in both size and levelness at this SP. Also some sites have hedges that may be very close to the camping pad which may create an issue with slide outs. Overall one of the nicer SP's we have stayed in. Outstanding location and very close to the Block Island ferry. This CG gets fully booked during the summer months as most people make their resevation months in advance. We booked 5 months early and were only able to get 4 nights in Area 1, then 4 nights in Area 4 and then only 2 more nights in Area 1. OTA TV varied, so so in our first site in Area 1 next to the old fort. It was much better in Area 4. Verizon cell and broadband both very good.

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.

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.
