Fishermen's State Park

Nice Campground not so nice staff.

    We camp a lot, and we camp in tents so we are pretty basic. We have two teenage sons that camp with us. We Love Camping and Campgrounds. One of the reasons we do camp is because we find the Rangers and/or campground owners/staff so knowlegable and helpful with information and recommendations of the area.

    This was not the case at Fisherman's. We camped there this past weekend - June 2010. When we checked in, the woman behind the desk was less then welcoming. She barely looked away from the computer she was on to speak with us. She offered no campground map and did not provide any directions to our site. I had to ask for both and she was completely annoyed that she had to assist.

    The Rangers/staff did not make rounds after "quiet time" and probably only because of that, we had a couple in the site next to us that was playing very loud music and having a huge fight with each other, lots of yelling, slamming of doors and swearing - not a good site to be next to - but worse that there was no one that monitored the campground after dark. This is not an experience that we have ever had camping before.

    The Tent sites are private, most surrounded by trees on at least a couple of sides, some are very small. The location of the campground is very central, close to all Narragansett beaches (you do have to drive) and about a 20 minute scenic drive up 1A and over 138 into Newport. The price is reasonable for sites with no electricity/water, non residents, that is what we had.
