Newport-Block Island Ferry Overnight parking??

Hi -

We are planning on a couple days on Block Island and then a couple days in Newport this summer. We'd like to leave the car in the free parking lot at Fort Adams state park for the time we are on Block Island.

Can anyone say if it's OK to leave the car there overnight? We'd like to leave it there for 2 nights.

Thanks in advance - MMK

I think if you call Sail Newport, who have a facility at Fort Adams they would know.

It looks like the ferrry from Newport to the Block is going to change to a high speed ferry this year. For those who want to go to the island this is a much better option than the old dilapidated ferry that they were using.

I have never seen "overnite" parking signs in the Fort Adams area. If they switch ferry service, there will be more travellors and hopefully they will provide spots for those on the ferry.

For the best answer, I would go with the Newport Information Center or the Newport Police.

I see my answer on the BlockIslandFerry website:

Newport

Our Newport ferry terminal is located at Fort Adams State Park. Parking is free if you are parking for the day, overnight parking is $6. For additional parking lot information please call 401-847-2400.

Thanks everyone!
