Has anyone tried Fort Getty Campground in Rhode Island?

We're thinking of spending a month in our Safari 25 at Fort Getty Campground (Jamestown Island) in RI.

The views look spectacular, but the trailers look very close together and we're not sure about the condition of the bathroom/showers.

Anyone tried this park?

Sorry, no experience with RI at all. But I am curious why you'd choose to spend a month anywhere. There's so much to see and do....


Somebody, please, point me to the road.

Went there yesterday to check it out, the view is great, the place is clean and maintained ,but facilities are minimal. Bathrooms were locked.

Thanks so much for going out of your way to check it out. What you describe sounds good to me - great view, clean and maintained. Minimal facilities aren't a problem for us.

We have lots of family and friends in RI, so we're looking more for a base of operations than anything else. A month will go by quickly.

Did you end up staying in this campground. I am curious because we are spending next July in Rhode Island.

We used to keep our boat in Dutch Harbor, Fort Getty forms the southern part of this harbor. It is a beautiful place. Great place for swimming and bicycling. Jamestown is a wonderful town with very friendly people. Nice restaurants; Simpatico is upscale with an eclectic menu (dogs are permitted in the heated out of doors section - they even served our dogs poached chicken breast one time on the house), The Oyster Bar serves traditional American fare with a nice selection of wines, Chop Mist Charlie's features standard pub food, A Slice of Heaven great place for coffee and breakfast all year - they serve dinner in the summer but I've never eaten dinner there, Portugese American Club - I only went there once but the traditional fish stew was excellent, the Tropi-Grille has an out of doors patio that also allows pets. The Narragansett Cafe has recently been renovated, I would classify it as a sports bar with very good pub fare, East Ferry Market and Deli is a very popular breakfast location as it is right across the street from the ferry dock with great views of the water front. McQuade's market is well stocked - we can always count on buying fresh squeezed unpasteurized orange juice here, don't miss the Village Hearth for the finest wood oven baked breads and pastries, they have expanded and now offer lunch and pizza, finally for the freshest seafood go to Zeke's on North Road at Zeke's creek if anyone does, he will have Striped Bass.

I hope this helps
