This park is not for everyone. Fort Wetherill and its sister fort Fort Adams were commissioned during WWII to protect the mouth of the bay. Today it is very run and has become the home for graffiti artists. If graffiti is not your thing, there is a large picnic area and many trails to explore.

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

This is a great spot by the water. There 4 separate places to access the beaches and rocks. The rocks are fun to climb just be careful. There are fun little trails that my kids liked taking. Great little beaches and even areas to cliff jump if you’re up to it. Ample parking. Bathrooms and or porto potties around the parking areas. Great place to picnic. The ruins and graffiti are a downer but the scenery makes up for it in my opinion. (You can’t park in there during Covid 19 shut down)

Before visiting, read up on Wikipedia's article about the defenses of Narragansett Bay, and then find the aerial pictures on Google maps. The fortifications are massive and crumbling. Take a flashlight if you have one. There is no interpretation except for the minefield buildings at one corner. If you explore the Bay's shoreline, you'll find many more buried, forgotten bunkers and artillery fortifications, but Fort Wetherill looks like something the Pharaohs would have built.

I spent 20 years of my life summering on Jamestown and visiting the forts regularly. I continue to go back every year. This year we took some of our family and grandkids to the island and included a visit to the park. What a disappointment. While the picnic area and grounds are well maintained and pleasant, the forts themselves were sad. My title says it all. Where once one could see Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, now the brush is so high it’s nearly impossible to see beyond. Trash litters the holes where the massive canons once were. For a state park it is a disgrace.
