30 RV Parks near West Kingston, Rhode Island
Jun 2017 - $65.00
This campground is not suitable for big rigs. Way overpriced for a poor campground. First there was no warning on the website or when I called for reservation about taking Exit 5 not Exit 3 on I-95. Coming from the south my GPS had me take Exit 3 which ended up being a difficult series of narrow roads with many overhanding branches hitting my RV to get to the park. Interior roads are paved and most sites are dirt. Some sites have a small concrete pad suitable only for a small trailer. There is no cable on most sites, trees prevent satellite access and no wifi at the sites (hot spots at pool and clubhouse). They have a security gate. None of the amenities - pool or clubhouse were open. When I arrived I was given site 77 whose pad was barely able to get my front and dual wheels on the pad and tag axle wheels were off the pad. Could not get very level. The electric power at this site keep tripping my RV on high voltage so I packed up and left after one night. Park is not very convenient to Newport or Providence. Will not come back. - Tom Willing

This campground was also highly rated and reported to have many amenities. Well this campground would also qualify as a very family friendly place, as long as your rig is not too big. Many of this campground sites are long term/seasonal campers. We made a reservation for this campground back in January when planning the trip. We specifically provided our RV size and that we requested FHU and a "lightly treed" site. They assured her that it was no problem, and we made the reservation for a week stay. Upon arrival that wasn't exactly what we found. The sites we were given was up at the end of a long narrow road in a cave of trees. When I got backed in we quickly figured out that the site was too small for the motor home to fit on the pad. The site had a cement RV pad that was on a site that was uphill from the road. Only the pad itself was semi level, and the dirt at either end dropped off quickly. No matter where I put the RV, one set of jacks was not on the pad, and into the very off camber dirt. We went back to the office to discuss the issue with the staff (which were very friendly by the way). They looked at their campground map and declared that the site was "too small" for our size rig. With few options available, we took another site, W&E only. I dodged some tree limbs to pull in, and found it too was pretty off camber in both directions. I was able to block the jacks to get us level, but we still were not overly pleased with the site. This one backed up to a large green moss covered water hole, and was next to the play area and campground store which made our site the "pass through" for all the campground traffic to go through. We quickly decided to cut the stay down to 3 days. The site fee included a $3 a day pet fee, which I think is excessive. The restrooms were clean, but old and not handicapped accessible. WiFi was offered for checking email only. The cell signal here was also very weak, so the Verizon air card struggled as well. - SargeW

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.

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

We stayed off-season, just after Labor Day. This campground has LOTS of amenities and many seasonal campers. We like the added touch of having an escort show us to the site (large park and it's nice to go to the correct site on the first try when you have a camper, trailer or RV). For a family, this park is awesome. So much to do for little ones, tweens and teens alike. Train rides (under 10), mini golf, pool, bball, bocci, shuffleboard...so much! Full service rec center with ice cream socials and pancake breakfasts as well as pool tables and games. Restrooms were clean, in fact we saw them being serviced 4 times in our barely 2 night stay. Showers need some updating, for sure. Tight and dingy. The park has a heavy seasonal base but, unlike some parks we've been to, these folks were very friendly and went out of their way to say hello. One fellow camper even gave us a ride in his golf cart so we wouldn't have to carry two loads of wood to our site (quite a walk from the office). Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great campground for those who like lots of activity. A little big and busy for us - but that's just our preference and no slight on this campground. - CDG

Bathrooms on weekend were bad but got better during the week. Rec hall closed during the week so access to sport equpment limited but managed to find someone to get it for us. Mini golf needs cleaning, moss growing on holes. Pool great and clean. Store not open posted hours. Site was better than we had anticipated based on reviews but some are small. Needs some activities during the week for the rate. Also even though my "kid" is over 18 still a kid in our family bit had to pay $7 / night extra even though 3 kids are allowed in the site price. There is nothing in the campground to justify the additional fee for a child over 18 being additional fee. We enjoyed our stay because we did a lot of sight seeing. Spent evenings and one afternoon at campground. Only first night (Sat) had activities. Pleasant people. Nice landscaping in most sites. - MAfamily4

Used to camp here in the 90's with kids. Not much has changed since then. The pool was redone this winter, which was nice. The bathrooms are very old and tired, in need of tile and a good cleaning. The roads are very small for a motorhome. Staff was friendly and very helpful. - campinggal16

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

This is a fairly large park converted from a field. They have a lot of amenities which we didn't use. The sites are gravel with grass in between. A bit of dirt due to allowing outdoor rugs. We were pretty level and most were but there were some sites that had side to side issues. The space between sites was OK. Not too tight but not spacious. Wi-Fi was good, water and electric were fine. I gave the low score because of our initial introduction upon registration. We had called several days ahead asking if we could have mail sent there and they said yes. (The mail was medications). We arrived on Saturday and leaving on Monday. When we got there I asked about the mail and they had not gone to the PO to get it and it was probably closed. I explained the situation and the park handyman was too busy sitting on his stool to go get it or care and the woman behind the desk couldn't leave or make the phone call to the PO. We ended up doing a quick parking job in our site and ran to the PO. Yes, they were closed but the postmaster was still there and was happy to help. I found this lack of customer service to be rude and uncaring. For $64 a night (before passport America) they really should have a care for their guests. - jomark

We paid the Passport America rate of $29.50 per night for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with cable and wifi. Good value with Passport America, but I don't think I would pay full price. The site was mostly level, but did have some grade at the back end of it. All utilities were good, cable lineup had 32 very clear stations. Wifi was very good with a computer, but our Galaxy smart phone did not care for it. Office staff was very nice and helpful. We came in early as we had just left a 9 am service appointment in nearby CT. The staff was great in accomadating us. They do have gated access here, so you will need a refundable $20 for the access card. As mentioned before, the only real complaint here is that the roads can get very dusty. We would return again if in the area. - Bob and Inga

So many campgrounds describe themselves as a resort. Obviously Ashaway is still a work in progress. The owners have invested in "fun" things and have a nice pool and large event building. During our stay, there were many more travel trailers and fifth wheels staying there than motorhomes. Access road into the campground was dirt and stone and was very dusty. Directions to our site were confusing especially without better marking of site numbers. Sites were not paved and felt rather tight. Our site had very little grass (mostly sandy soil) on the entry side of the motorhome. Hard to keep dirt outside. Given time this park may evolve to be classified as a "resort" but this reviewer believes it fell short of that description. - BerylCop

A state with a lot of rules, a page full, the most of any state park I've been in. You can/t use your A/C. Some sites are narrow and not at all level. This park is an easy bike ride to the ferry . - ragsland

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. - mrracechaser

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

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

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
