Late summer and early autumn are the perfect time of year to camp in Newport! Whether tent camping or staying in your RV or travel trailer, we have some great sites to set up your home away from home. The weather is still warm and pleasant this time of year and many of our regular visitors have returned home after the busy summer season, so there are more available spots for you to choose from.
