This is a large, very attractive campground. There's a good mix of sun and shade. The camp sites are wide, though mine some somewhat skimpy fore and aft. What will bring parents is the wide range of activities for kids, not only a swimming pool, but a water slide, and much more. Getting there from Connecticut was short but concerning. My GPS routed me over roads that conscientious traffic planners would not want heavy rigs to drive regularly, and that includes the Gardiner Road that services the campground itself. Perhaps if Google Maps told me more about the roads it routes users onto, I might have avoided some of them. But from the driving I did in the state, it appears that Rhode Island officials have made the decision that they can't afford both to pay themselves competitive salaries and to maintain the roads. My site was satisfactory. It was wide enough for me to back into despite the tree and boulder right across the lane. I did have to park my trailer over the remains of a campfire that had been built there instead of in the fire ring. To be sure the grass and gravel site does not make a clear distinction between the part for trailers and the part for people. If I were the kind of camper that spent a lot of time outside in front of the RV, I would have found that burned ground annoyingly ugly. But I'm not, so for the most part, I didn't notice it. I would have thought that management would have noticed and corrected the burn. But I got the impression that the staff doesn't think along those lines. They proved more surly than friendly. They even have a sign next to the office door that says, in effect, "Don't bother me unless it's very important." A questionable way to greet customers, don't you think? - Jim Fulton

Very nice campground! Large sites, most are shaded. The seasonals are well-kept. Very clean campground. Large playground. The pool, waterslide and mini golf were all closed for the season but looked nice. Good location for day trips to Mystic, CT and RI beaches, etc. - lllkrob

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

Have RV traveled for 3 years. This is one of the worst parks we have seen. If our stay had been longer than 3 nights we would have left without staying. No effort to keep park maintained and clean. No TV; satellite, cable, antenna. No WIFI. Sitting outside was unpleasant due to condition of the park. Difficult to back into. Too shallow to easily keep tow vehicle in site, park knew our length when they assigned site. Rows narrow, only 1 road in/out. Impossible to get by incoming/outgoing rigs. - KCMO escapee

We chose this campground because of the proximity to Mystic and Newport. The sites were spacious and level. We had a bad experience because we were next to a pavilion and one night there was extremely loud music until 9:00 P.M. We would stay there again but would ask if there were dances with loud music that night. - HaveDieselWillTravel

We stayed after the season, so no one was in the office. Luckily the Fed-X guy was there on the campground phone with someone. When he was done he handed me the phone to talk with someone about checking in. They told us what site to go to and that they'd be by to settle up later on. The site was a level pull thru. Connections were very easy. It was pretty typical of a resort style campground...fairly close to your neighbor, but not intrusive. There was a pool and a lot of recreational activities to do in season. There was also a large rec hall that I think sold food. I can't really find anything bad to say about the place. They never came to collect the money, but when we were leaving I noticed someone in the office so I pulled over and paid. $38 for a campsite in New England was pretty darn good, as that area tends to be too expensive. I would definitely go back, and recommend it for both overnighters and a destination campground. - villager04

Our rating is Average due to only part of the park was available during our visit. We had driven through Burlingame State Park previously, to find appropriate sites for our 42' Fifth Wheel. However, when we made our reservation, we weren't aware that they close 2/3 of the park after Labor Day. This put us choosing a site unseen. They forbid trimming the trees and our site ended up having branches which would be in the way of many camper sizes. While dry camping, we utilize the bathroom facilities at parks. During our 10 night stay, there was never soap in the bathroom. There was a dispenser, which should be removed if they aren't going to provide soap. This is a beautiful park nature-wise and we know now to expect limited site availability during off-peak. - Pphil

Ditto to all other reviews. We were in the 300's near the bathhouse and boat launch. Very quiet. Only 1/3 park was full. Our site very large with lots of trees and space between for privacy. Site was all sand and gravel and not as level as we would have hoped. But there are very nice level and large sites - just got to know where to go. Baths are older and in need of rehab. Lots of graffiti in the stalls and old concrete floors that could use a serious power wash. $.75 4 minute shower. Only hot water that cannot be regulated? Not good on a 90 degree 90% humidity day! - travlinphoolz

Camped here for one night during the week. Office staff was super nice on check-in. Park was empty because it's past the season and during the week. Can't imagine what the place is like when it's filled up! Too few bathrooms for too many people, I'd bet. Bathrooms were clean but old and rundown.
The beach looked nice, but too small for even 100 people, never mind the crowds that must gather from over 800 campsites. Bikes would be a good idea to bring here, everything is a bit too far to walk, and no place to park a car.
No amenities of any kind, strict no alcohol, no nudity, no cutting of trees.
(Where's the fun in that? If I can't drink beer while cutting down the woods naked, ....) It really is a lovely park and we enjoyed our stay.
The sites are all different sizes and layouts, some useless due to rocks and tree roots, others wide open and perfect. We camped here in our VW Westfalia camper. - JudoJeff

Nice large park with good level sight. Laundry was very reasonable $1.50 load, dryer $1.00 but only three machines which is not enough for such a large park. Sites were gravel with grass on the patio. The road in dirt so your vehicle get very dusty going up and down. Didn't use there WiFi. About 15 minute drive to beautiful Westerly and an hour to Newport. - Aussie Chums

We're here as part of a Caravan. Newer park, the roads are rough, gravel. The sites are gravel and grass. Decent spacing between lots. Appears that seasonal have all the premier spots that back up to the trees. Full hook up, lots of amenities, in a few years when trees have grown up it'll be a nicer park. - smitty12

Sites are very nice, large, level, electric, sewer. Water pressure very good. Campground is still being built out, and the trees at the sites are very small. Mini golf being added. Pavilion nice too. Pool is nice but small for the size of the campground and only 3' deep. Would have been nice to have more organized events for the kids. Great location to the beaches. This was our second time staying here. Lower level sites are nicer and flatter than the upper level sites. We heard they are going to convert the campground to seasonal only in the future. - Pshaine

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. - RI Ramblers

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. - LifeRebooted

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. - Love2Camp777

I cant say anything more that hasn't been already been said about the beauty and serenity of Charlestown Breachway, it is paradise with a slight downside...The rules of this state park clearly states NO ANIMALS. Don't get me wrong, I love animals and have dogs of my own. We have been camping at the Breachway for 40 or so years, and then about 7 or so years ago campers started showing up with their pet dogs. Some say they are therapy dogs. Some are but most are not. Each year it seems more and more dogs are allowed in. I'm sure there are pet friendly campgrounds around, go there if you have pets. The state needs to enforce this rule better at Charlestown Breachway. I haven't yet and don't need to step into a pile of poop which I have seen and avoided...enough of that rant...everything else there is perfection, beaches are raked daily, the park is always free of litter, everyone is friendly, car parking is tight during the summer months..as always, we will be back again and again. - Gary gmoney

Location, location, location. That's what Charlestown Breachway is all about. Hard to beat being RIGHT on the ocean for $20/night. We camped in our Roadtrek and kept the back doors open at night to listen to the surf and catch the breeze. Beautiful. Fellow campers are very friendly. Convenient to beach and kayaking/fishing. Yes, space is VERY tight. This is not a campground but rather a parking lot with space for your camper & table/chairs/awning. Just know going into it that you are here for the location. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our stay involved 2 site transfers (best we could do given how last minute we booked). Check out is 11am. Neither of the campers leaving the site we were moving to were out by 11 but the staff worked with us to get them moving. Now let's talk generator use. It's a problem. Generator use is allowed 8am-8pm and there are folks who run it the WHOLE time. There are no rules as to where you can place your portable unit. The guy next to us put his at the rear of his coach, which was right outside our coach. Very loud & gasoline smell ALL DAY. Some regulations on generator use would be very welcome. Have 2 hour windows for generator use would be much better. A few people brought their home generators to use and those were particularly loud. Rules in this area need to change. But truly, that is the only downside to this place. We'll be back! - CDG

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here. - Bob and Inga

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

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
