We could not have camped at a better location. The Campground is immaculate and well run. The sites overlook a canal and provides the best sunsets!!! Kayak trails across the canal are well marked. We rented a tandem and followed a trail out to an Island on the Chesapeake Bay that we pretty much had to ourselves! If you like... More

This is our second time at Janes Island. We rented a full service cabin for the week which are very reasonably priced. The log cabins are equipped with a full kitchen, air conditioning, fireplace, full bathroom and sleep up to six people. You also have a shared private pier to fish or crab with a canal right in front of... More

I need to be honest. I did not stay in the Park. I rode past it on a boat, but the park looked absolutely fantastic. All along the river can the park was full of tent camping sites and small cabins. The views were superb, the park was spotless clean, and I kept saying, "I need to come back here... More

We biked to the park, rode around, had a snack at the visitor's center and watched people crab and kayak. Would come back in a heartbeat to camp, rent kayaks/canoes, or just hang out. It's gorgeous and not well known. Shhhh!

We visited Janes Island State Park and campground for the first time this summer. We were thrilled with the campground, our camp site location and easy access to the 30+ miles of water trails and beach area on the Chesapeake Bay. The campground itself is one of the best we've stayed at - very clean, relatively small in size, quiet,... More

We absolutely loved camping at this state park. Our site was on the water so we had beautiful views all day long. Although the pad was gravel, it was level so there was no trouble leveling our 30ft trailer. The marina was a short walk. Overnight dock fees were $3.00 per night. The bathrooms were beautiful and very, very clean.... More

I just started kayaking about a month ago. The park ranger and staff at Janes Island have been so helpful. We always check in before we launch to tell the staff where we want to go. The last time we were out the trail we chose was under low tide. We were told to wait an hour before we embarked... More

Nice well kept camp ground. They do have a few cabin rentals. Have a boat ramp and slips for campers to use. A nature center and I believe they rent kayaks. You can fish and crab from the bank.
