Fodor's Review

With more than 100 acres of private beach along Newport's Back Bay, Newport Dunes is one of the poshest RV parks in the world. Although beachfront pull-in premium sites—complete with Wi-Fi and TV plus hookups to water, electricity, and sewer—are considerably larger (and less cramped) than those a few rows back, all sites are immaculately clean. There are 55 sites for freestanding tents, as well as cottages with kitchens and porches that can accommodate up to six guests. At the Village Center you'll find a pool, a spa, and a convenience store, and the upscale Back Bay Bistro. Nonguests are able to access the park for day use to swim, surf, or rent boats or kayaks.
