Was brought here by a friend who had visited over the summer with her grandson. The park has some beautiful areas to picnic and the water views are exceptional, however, the fort itself is so disappointing in that it is totally covered in graffiti and much of it is offensive. Everywhere I looked there was the f word. What also didn’t help on our visit was a parked vehicle blaring rap music with offensIve words as well. Many folks cleared the area upon hearing this music. If ever I return it certainly won’t be to the fort. Sad that the graffiti has been allowed to overrun every inch of the fort, inside and out. I would not recommend this park for families.

I worked in Jamestown back in the late 80’s and would hang out at the fort. I returned recently and it has changed. Fences have been installed so the fort is no longer accessible. There is a huge amount of, graffiti on the old fort, some artistic, some political and some just plain old tagging. There are semi private areas to sit by the water as well a large picnic area. Personally, I have never dove in the area, but have seen many divers there. Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking. All in all, it is still worth a visit to view the ocean and Newport.

Absolutely beautiful!!! From the ocean views to the graffitied walls. So much to see here. My sister and I took our kids for the afternoon and we were not disappointed. So much history to experience. The tunnels are definitely creepy!! Bring a flashlight. 10/10 would recommend.

The grounds are beautiful but the graffiti forts were creepy. I felt like I was in an unwanted area. The inside of the forts were dark and wet and I wasn’t sure if it was urine or rain water or both. I didn’t bother going inside at all. The graffiti takes away from historic aspects. I read the entire place is haunted. I’m glad I went but will not return
