Fort Getty Campground

Fort Getty Park is a Town-owned facility located at the terminus of Fort Getty Road and is 41 acres in size.  Fort Getty is primarily a recreational-vehicle campground that also contains a tent camping area. The Park itself-has old fortifications, a rocky beach, a public boat ramp and a dock.  The Kit Wright walking trail was completed along Fox Hill Marsh in the winter of 2000.  In addition, the Boy Scouts constructed a wildlife observation platform that was funded by the Rotary Club in 2000.  Views of the Jamestown Bridge and across the West Passage make this park one of the Town’s major recreational and open space resources.  Fees are charged during the summer months for non-resident parking and boat launching and a Beach sticker is needed for residents to enter in the summer season.

The campground consists of 83 seasonal RV sites and 26 tent sites.


The campground has closed for the 2023 season.

 Fort Getty will open for RV camping on May 9th, 2024.

Tent camping will resume on May 13th, 2024. Reservations can be made starting January 1st, 2024.



If you are looking to RV camp with us in the 2024 season there are several methods to do so. 


If you are looking to RV camp for the entire season:

RV sites are reserved by assignment only. Once the returning seasonal campers have confirmed their stay with us, we inventory which sites are available and then contact members of our 2024 Seasonal Waitlist in order of Jamestown Residency (Jamestown residents get priority) and then in order in which they joined the waitlist. The Seasonal Waitlist  for the 2024 season opens October 2nd, 2023. The waitlist is $25 per year and to join please visit our registration page at


 If you are looking to transient RV camp (minimum of a two week stay):

Once the Seasonal waitlist has been satisfied we fill the remaining RV spots with members of our Transient waitlist. The transient waitlist is ranked by Jamestown resident status (Jamestown residents get priority) then by length of stay, then by order of when member joined the list.  The Transient waitlist for the 2024 season opens October 2nd, 2023. The waitlist is $25 per year and to join please visit our registration page at


Thank you everyone for a great season!
