We were camping at Townshend state park and was out exploring the area. Upon arriving at the park we were greeted by a very friendly Ranger (Kevin I think). We parked, used the restrooms which were very clean and went for a walk. We did not do much to give an in depth review however it was nice and clean... More

So... you come into the falls from the top. You have 3 choices of how to descend to the bottom of the falls (125 feet below) to get pictures. You can walk down the rocks (I don't recommend this as they can be wet and slippery); you can walk down the path on the side (and sometimes jump from root... More

I hiked and swam at Jamaica State Park with my family and family-in law. Our group consisted of adults and teenagers, and we really enjoyed the hike. It offered beautiful views without being overly strenuous. The water felt great as well. We really loved being immersed in nature, and we even discovered a new type of HUGE bug we had... More

Sons and I had enjoyed tenting at Jamaica State Park with Don and kids over 25 years ago! One weekend a year. Always chose a site with room-sized lean-to near the river. Attractive, interesting, well-managed, affordable, spacious, and fun ... with a broad array of possible activities. Flat-walking, hiking, swimming the West River, fishing, other sites and attractions in the... More

My husband and I headed in and did 2 flat miles and then headed up the mountain for 1 mile to go see Hamilton Falls! It was a HIKE, but so worth it! We were proud that we didn't give up and achieved the goal! It was nice walking in along the river, saw some kayakers, lots of walkers and... More

This is a great park with excellent hiking trail from easy to difficult. There is a very pretty waterfalls up a fairly steep hiking path. There is also a wonderful little beach to swim in the West River just inside the park. There are also restrooms, changing rooms, camping site all within this wonderful state park. There is a $3.00...

We arrived on Monday afternoon and stayed until Saturday morning. The campground is well maintained, it is secluded and a relatively small camping facility with only 61 sites. They tend to be quite full on weekends, so by staying Mon thru Sat we missed all but the Friday night crush. The park is right on the West River (small river... More

The falls were beautiful and afterwards we hiked over to the dam and walked up the path cut into the side which was an awesome experience then hiked back. Gorgeous, fun trip.

Jamaica State Park is a great place for a day hike. For $3 you can hike as much as you'd like all day. And that's just the thing---it's a great place to hike a lot or a little. It can be easy or more challenging. The level path that borders the West River is beautiful in any season, though fall... More

Went for a day hike to Hamilton's Falls which is 6 miles round trip. First part of hike is along the river which has impressive boulders called "dumplings" in it. Very cool. Trail is wide and flat. Then, it's an uphill slightly rocky steep 1 miles up. Not for the unfit. Falls are pretty and peaceful- a 125 height. But,... More
