30 Parks near West Kingston, Rhode Island
Jul 2016 - $55.00
This is a clean campground within an easy 35-40 minute drive to Newport, RI. We opted for a 30 amp, full hookup site, as their 50 amp sites don't have cable. Not all sites have sewer - only W&E. Our back-in site was spacious and level, but no shade. Most of their sites do have shade. Friendly and easy check-in. There's a lot for kids to do and have fun. Lots of space to walk the dog. The cable was really good but there was no wi-fi at the site. Good Verizon cell service. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

Definatly a family friendly park. Lots of kids, it was their Christmas in July event.
The park is off the beaten path and interesting to get too.
The sites are large but a bit hilly.
My biggest gripe is the early arrival charge of $5 an hour and. a $3 per dog charge. Because they can. - User780

We used the park as our home base for our family activities off -site so we did not utilize the most of the parks amenities. Site was large and nice. Staff was very friendly. On site "restaurant" was good but not open every day. We plan on going back when we can spend sometime relaxing at the park. Pool slide looked great but we did not have time to use it and as others have said it is ala cart.
The knocks: my site was very difficult to get into due to trees at entrance to site and a huge rock where my truck needed to swing. With the help of a seasonal RVer and wife I used a semi-perpendicular road for my approach. I was backing blind so their help was greatly appreciated.
This one is stupid but the speed bumps are crazy large! Don't bring your Ferrari or even your Vette...you will hit bottom. :-)
Overall 8.5 rating. - Bandguy

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

Campground very convenient to area beaches and attractions. Mostly seasonal weekenders but transient sites are large. No sewer but allowed to dump grey water on ground. A negative are the noisy gas golf carts racing around. They do not seem to abide by the 5 MPH speed limit. Would probably camp here again but not near the main road. Would be quieter that way. - DZD

This place was very busy. We asked for a site with full hook-ups and they put us in a pull-thru site (yay!) but it didn't have sewer (boo!). We asked if they had a site with full hook-ups and they said they did but it was a short and narrow site. We would just barely fit but we were welcome to check it out and if we wanted to take it to let them know. They weren't kidding, the site was very short and narrow so we stayed in the pull-thru site. They only had the honey wagon on Monday and Tuesdays so we were not able to utilize that service either. We ended up cutting our visit a day short. We checked out the showers and while they appeared to be clean, they were old and the floors were always wet so we didn't want to use them. Our site was long but narrow and our neighbor, who was a seasonal patron, had some of his items (dog pen, 2 screen houses), extending into our site some, which made heading over to take care of our hookups awkward. There were mostly seasonal patrons who were all very friendly as were the staff. Like I mentioned earlier, it was a busy place with dogs barking at 6 am and kids riding bikes shortly after. If you are looking for a place with lots of friendly people and activities, this would be a great place to visit but with a smaller camper. If you are looking for a more quiet experience, you may not enjoy your stay. - DeannaS

Family CG with lots for the kids to do. I like the private fishing pond and the pool. Ocean is nearby and an easy ride to get to. Gravel roads are narrow and might be difficult for a big rig.
I camped here in my VW Westfalia. - JudoJeff

Nice large, wooded campground. Lots of seasonals but they are kept up. Pool looked good but we did not use. Lots for kids to do and campground gets busy on weekends. Minor computer problem on check in but they assigned us a site and we went back later to pay. We had a gravel pull-through site with room for slideout and only needed a little leveling. No problems with utilities. Restrooms are older but kept clean. We would camp here again. - 21fbrs

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

Stayed at this campground many times over the years. Great location to the only real asset RI has which are their beaches. As far as the campground goes it is not given the maintenance it requires to offer safe access to the facility. Tree limbs are hanging to low everywhere. The state of RI like other north eastern states employ lazy personal that are there for the check instead of the pride of having a descent job with yes responsibilities. I witnessed the campground staff taking their afternoon nap deep off the trail on at least two occasions. We all know this will never change. It's to bad because this campground has more potential than it state is giving it. - tinman

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. - roadking

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. - Camping USA

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. - eaglesfan

We arrived early April and found only two other RV's in the park. Absolutely secluded and beautiful beach location. We own a 20' RV and since there's no dump station nor water AND you have limited grey/black tank storage you must conserve and be smart about use or you'll have to drive to the nearest dump site 15 min. You can use a generator but it's only allowed until 8 pm.
I've had family and friends stay here over the summer and its wall to wall campers with loud generators and cramped for space, the bathrooms in April were closed to us. If you're looking for serene and quiet I'd go off season as we will do so in the Fall. If they'd allow generators to go to 10 pm I'd give it a better rating. Not an issue if you have the larger RV's, a challenge if you have ones with limited power and water capacities. - koeka

Park still gets a 10 for location. But during July and August there simply are too many vehicles in it. Getting set up can be a real challenge. One big problem is that the Department of Environmental Management is now in an office, so after the parking vendor leaves at 5:00 pm the gate booth is unmanned. So some folks with sites have all kinds of family and friends coming in to visit. This park is much better just before and after the peak summer season. - Bob and Inga

This is an open area parking. Since it was off season only a few campers were here so it was pretty quiet. Extensive beach for walking, fishing, and small boating could be seen. We had cold evenings, nice sunsets and sunrises. There are no amenities so it's dry camping. Good restaurants nearby. We stayed 3 days. - RonMill

Ashway is a fairly large, well laid-out RV park with, it seems, about 1/3rd to 1/2 semi-permanent. We lucked out with a pull-through despite our tiny motorhome. The site is very long, gravel and grass, close to each other but not too close, not very level, great hookups, a nice picnic table, a very nice grill/fire-pit but almost none of the sites have any shade. The WiFi here is impressively good. I could also get 2-bars of Verizon 4G signal. Includes cable TV with about 12 channels. The pool is very nice, and they have an adult-only hot-tub, all very clean. The playground area and game room pavilion look new and are quite impressive, including large bathrooms with showers. Laundry has 2 washers and 3 dryers, very clean and reasonable. The management seems very nice, and the store stocks a few items. Access card is $20, refundable upon return. Dirt/gravel road that connects the park to the main asphalt road has a lot of small potholes and can be dusty. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. - RobtL

The post below by Snoopy216 is not Ashaway RV Resort. The poster
was confused, as Ashaway RV is 7 miles from the ocean, has
no trees and has wide open roads, and modern bathrooms as the
place is only two years old.
This campground is about location, it is convenient to Newport,
Mystic, Groton, New London. Fairly ease off I-95. Easy in and out.
Quite a few seasonal sites, but they were all spotless and well
maintained. On the downside, sites are a little close, and there is
no shade. Many sites are laid out wrong, so the sun is pounding on
the "social side" of the coach till 7pm. Interior roads are quite
dusty. A little more barking dogs than most parks. Very nice pool
area and game room. Park is just two years old and they are
working on improvements constantly. - macandphyl

Each section of this park had one toilet and one shower. The shower and bathroom looked like something from the 1940s. Filthy. Seasonal guests mostly with very little room for your trailer to squeeze in. Sites are set on each other with very little room to do anything. The only nice thing about this place was the ocean was within walking distance of the place. Good Sam rated this place as a 9/10/9 I don't know who did that but they must have been drunk to rate this dump that. I talked to one of the cleaners and they said that the park was bought by someone else and there was to be upgraded. Fat chance! - snoopy216

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
