Fort Getty Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Fort Getty Recreation Area will appeal to history buffs and anyone wanting to combine a little paddling or beachcombing with their camping experience. It’s also a perfect spot to capture some island-camping mystique without actually loading up a boat, canoe, or kayak and rowing off across the water.

Set on a windswept bluff near the southern tip of Conanicut Island in the middle of Narragansett Bay, this is a beautiful oceanside campground. Even though this campground is on an island, rest assured you can get there by car."

View is gorgeous, but hard to concentrate downwind of the din of 100 RVs and their toys. The dozen tent sites are crammed into corner of field with no privacy (and a drunk guy who watches tv to go to sleep- plug reaches the RV hookup- after his wife kicked him out). Really not worth it. Management was not at all responsive re noise control. Drive by, check out the view, continue on to somewhere else. Or go buy an RV and plug in your porch lights.
