When I arrived I was greeted by a ranger who helped me park my RV. He also was extremely informative about the park and demonstrated expertise in the area. Being handicapped, I could not avail myself of the trails, and there is only primitive camping. However, there is the remains of a fish hatchery and the headwaters of the Saluda... More

We hiked the Rainbow Trail at Jones Gap and had a great time. The trail is challenging, but gives you wonderful scenes as you hike next to a stream and wind your way to the falls. Really enjoyed the hike. Only downside is that parking is limited.

Not much parking and it fills up fast so get there first thing! Don't wait around!I have hiked Jones Gap many times and never tire of it. It is peaceful and beautiful. The trail to Rainbow Falls is slightly difficult if you are not in shape but well worth the reward. There are other harder trails like Hospital Rock. You... More

We stopped here to do the Jones Gap Falls walk and it was a lovely walk along the river and up to falls. We found one geocache but couldn't find the second one at the falls. As Floridians we are challenged by the hiking over rocks committing us to purchase hiking books for our next experience. Great place to picnic... More

As a first timer to Jones Gap State Park I really didn't know what to expect. I had read that there was great hiking but that's about it. We arrived just before 11am on a Saturday in mid-April to find a huge line of cars at the entrance. Turns out, there is a limited capacity in the park due to... More

Jones Gap is the best camping and hiking in the Greenville area. Camping by the river is a must. My son (4 years) absolutely loves having access to the river. Primitive camping but still have access to showers with a short hike. Waterfall hikes are amazing especially after large rains.

The first time I visited Jones Gap State Park, it was for a brief time. We were trying to get Rainbow Falls and that's all we did in the park. More recently, my wife and I camped here on our way to Georgia and had a little more time to spend in the park. The camping was very nice. It's... More

Rainbow Falls is an amazing 100-foot freefall over a cliff face. The main way to get to the falls is through Jones Gap State Park. In the past, it was possible to access the falls from Camp Greenville, but this is a very steep and dangerous route. The state park opened a trail to the falls and this is now... More

We have taken a few trips here beginning in the early summer of this year, and this place has become one of our favorite destinations to get away and camp. The park, overall, has been very well taken care of and clean. The only (minor) exception to this was campsite #2, where someone had apparently littered a few rusty barrels... More
