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

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

Great campground. We were at site 110 on Labor Day weekend. It is right at the boat ramp so there was constant activity. Early morning wakes up with boats backing in and the fishermen shouting directions. The camp itself is great. This was our third trip here. - wfmdfm

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

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. - eventanman

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. - DXRFLYER

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

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

This is a pretty new park so it is in really great shape. The trees are very small since they are fairly young. It is a huge park but doesn't feel crowded. The playground area/pool area are great for kids. They had fun activities for kids. All utilities worked well and our satellite was good. Even their WIFI was great. Sites were fairly level. Probably the only complaint is the road coming in is dirt/gravel and has lots of bumps. They would be out spraying water on it to keep the dust down, but it was very bumpy. They did have a laundry, but there were only 2 washers and 3 dryers for a very large park. Would stay here again if in the area. - jacknpeg

Brand new park with generous common areas and nicely laid-out sites. Roads are dirt, sites are level packed crushed stone with grass between. Utility connections are easy with good locations. Very good Verizon 4G LTE, strong water pressure. Excellent pavilion and pool area. We took advantage of an end-of-season special price. - jbrucemagon

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

This campground sits on a small knoll on the tip of the island. Views are great. Most of the sites are taken by seasonal campers. No more than a dozen sites are available for transients. Most transient sites are fairly level. Some of the seasonal sites require extreme blocking to level. Hookups are marginal - water taps require 3 or 4 splitters to handle all the units. Electrical voltage drops in the afternoon when all the AC's cut in. Trash has to be carried to the main gate, about 1/2 mile away. Convenient boat ramp. No shade even for the tent area. - glenthompson

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
