Fort Getty Boat Ramp


About Us:

Forty Getty State Park is one of the few places in the Bay where you can paddle to a campsite. The park and campground are owned and run by the Town of Jamestown. It is a popular site for boating, fishing, camping and swimming. Advanced reservations for camping are recommended. There are fees to enter the park in season. The boat ramp is asphalt and reported to be in good condition. Dutch Island Harbor, north of Fort Getty, offers interesting possibilities for exploration in sea kayaks. Both Dutch Island Harbor and the adjacent West Passage are relatively exposed and can get rough if the wind kicks up. On most days the southwest wind fills in strongly in this area in the morning and blows briskly throughout the afternoon, producing strong waves, so be prepared for this when planning your trip.
