Great place to walk the dogs, play sports, romantic walks. Surrounded on all sides by water, wonderful views of the harbor, bay, and ocean.

what an awful place. There is a $20.00 charge for this dirty and crumbling place. It smells bad. There is a dock that you can fish off of , if you can find room and it is so decrepit I wouldn't walk on it. It was very dirty with debris and beer cans lying around. We had to drive and park on a crumbling asphalt drive.
there is a place for campers I don't know what thats like.
We couldn't find a rest room . The staff were rude when we tried to ask questions. They are quick to take your money but slow with answers if they answer at all.
I will go to the other fort -WETHERALL on the other side. It is free, beautifully maintained and fishing is great. There are easy access rest rooms and a beautiful picnic area,

NIce place to enjoy sailboat gazing. Take a picnic lunch or bottle of wine at sunset. Little coves and points to park car and walk out to benches.

Fort Getty, especially during the summer, is not a park...it's a campground. If you have an RV, enjoy, but don't expect to spend a quiet day taking in nature with the family. There are other great parks in Jamestown (Fort Wetherill and Beaver Tail) but this is one you can skip.

Staff was not overly friendly or informative; Fort is interesting but many of the areas need some repair as it is really old and looks like it is falling apart. Quite a few areas look like they are being used for storage. Interesting but needs some work and friendlier staff
