About Fort Getty Park
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.
