Tight turn to get in this camp ground because we turned in the wrong drive way. It is conveniently located outside Newport Rhode Island. 30 amp service with water and sewer. Very tight sites. For our needs this is ok. They do not take credit cards, all cash. This is ok for basic needs.
We always return to Meadowlark campground rv Park. The grounds are well cared for, its peaceful with just the nicest people that run it. We feel safe and so enjoy sitting around the fire pit at night. When you walk around you can hear the Ocean Waves in the distance and have at night many times see deer. We have run into problems at another campground in the area and they just were uncaring. We have go there because it always feels Like home and will assist you in parking which is nice after you have been driving for many hours. We highly recommend!
We had asked for a FHU and mailed in a deposit, and when we arrived they only had an electric only site. Apparently this is standard operating procedure, so be sure you are OK with electric-only before considering this park. There is a dump station near the front where you can also take on water. There are also a couple of water stations scattered around the park. The water pressure is pretty low, so it takes a while to fill your tank. We think there are a few FHU sites up front, but almost all of those sites are taken by seasonal trailers. Also, those sites seem to be much closer together than the ones in the back or "the field" as they call it. The sites in the field are all grass, back-in sites with 30 amp only. The sites are fairly spacious with old picnic tables and very few trees. There is a bit of a slope to all sites in the field, but nothing unmanageable. There is no Wi-Fi in the field, they lost their provider. They take cash or checks, they took our personal check from Texas. So why stay here? You are less than a mile from Easton Beach, not much further to second beach and very close to all of the mansions and the center of Newport. You are literally minutes from anywhere in town. They do keep the park mowed and clean, and they give you a big packet of information upon arrival. We were comfortable during our stay notwithstanding the limited amenities. …
This "campground" is certainly interesting. Mostly seasonals. We chose this park as it was less expensive than others in the area and we knew we would be sightseeing most of the time. If you are looking for bells and whistles, this is not the place for you. We had to fill our water tank on the way in "very precarious" even though they have "hidden water spigots" for their seasonals. Makes no sense. In any event, it is an OK place to drop for a few days and sightsee in Newport. We camped there with our 43 foot fifth wheel.
I had no specific issues other than the sites by the entrance are a bit off level. I have a class C that does not have hydraulic jacks so I could not get level enough to allow my refer to run properly. I could have relocated to another site further down but we stuck it out. There is nothing fancy here we only slept here to be honest. It was about a 3 mile walk to downtown which we were happy to do. Newport was enjoyable. If you are looking for a place to stay and sleep this is fine. Sites are close together as others have said. I would stay here again.
