Default Need a Big Rig Friendly Park near Newport, RI

We are planning on visiting the mansions in Newport, RI but I can't seem to find any campgrounds nearby that can handle a big rig friendly. Does Anyone have a recommendation for us?

Very few CG's in RI that are big rig friendly, there once was a KOA in Middleton RI, I think it is history now. Normandy Farms, is probably the closest to Newport, The CG's in RI are very narrow with small sites very difficult with a Big Rig.

On Cape Cod there are two very good CG's Atlantic Oaks in Eastham, and Shady Knoll in Brewster. Be careful with Sweetwater Farms the roads are narrow and the sites tight.

The state Park is also ok on the cape.

Don't know much about Rhode Island campgrounds but, Normandy Farms in Foxboro, Ma can handle big rigs. You would be about an hour from the Newport Mansions.

Sean, I know a guy who lives up in Massachusetts and he and his family just love that Normandy Farms in Foxboro, MA. He tried for years to get us to visit and stay at that park. And he has a quad slide coach towing a Jeep Cherokee without issues.
