We canoed at Janes Island as part of a ParkQuest activity. The staff in the store and at the dock were very friendly and helpful. We took out two tandem kayaks because we had 5 people and the traditional canoes were all out. The marsh is beautiful and peaceful. We saw many interesting animals, bird, and even a blue crab!...

My husband and I wanted to be close to the water for our August camping trip. Luckily we knew the weather was going to be unseasonably cool so we decided to go for this park. We were not disappointed. It was small and peaceful for our Thurs-Sun stay. It was well maintained and right on the waterway. We rented a... More

Great place for camping however, one peeve is the State Park allows RVs the use of electric generators. Running generators are a big nuisance being loud and destroying the camping experience and many people complained about one set up in the middle of the tent section. We were allowed to move from our original site to a more peaceful site... More

My husband and two boys just spent a great weekend at Janes Island Camping. We had a waterfront, electric site. Our boys spent hours catching crabs off of the pilings with their crab nets. We brought two kayaks and rented a third and had a nice time exploring and ended up at a nice beach where the boys could swim.... More

Boring. no swimming. Bugs are huge and everywhere. Staff is not knowledgeable or friendly. Sites are primitive. Store barely furnished, no t shirts larger than L, nature center not open, events poorly run. We won't be going back

I brought my dogs camping in a travel trailer. We got an electric site, waterfront, facing the canal & Janes Island. There was no extra fee for my dogs. My husband got a 7-day saltwater fishing license online for $12.00, our 2nd day down there. They e*mailed it right to his phone. The biting flies were nasty. My insect repellent... More

We rented a canoe and explored beautiful marshes. Wild life included tons of mussels, blue herons, cranes, fish, and crabs. There are some biting flies so bring your insect repellent. Canoeing trails are very well marked and the staff is quite friendly and helpful. We intend to come back to enjoy the backwoods camping on a small island in the... More

Spent the July 4th holiday tent camping at Janes Island. This was my wife and my first time there and our friends' second. We found the park to be very nice. The campsites are spacious and clean. Nice large tent pads, although the majority of them in area C are fine gravel and not sand. The firepits are very nice... More

Went to Janes Island for two nights of camping. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was clean and the bathrooms were well kept and the showers were hot. Even though every camp site near us was full the park was quiet and I did not see any problems. We rented a kayak for the day. The park... More

Jane's Island State Park is off the beaten track and thus not visited by many. But the scenery is great, and opportunities for water recreation abound. One drawback: Pretty much everything was under construction when I visited.
