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

My son and I recently stayed in this park starting off in a tent site. The sites are very large. Big enough for a large tent and a screen house with room left over. We spent a day hiking the trails in and around the park. When we came back to camp in the late afternoon it looked like it... More

This Vermont State Park comprises 772 acres, and includes 41 nice tent/trailer sites in the woods near the West River. Fees are reasonable and non-camping entrance fee to the park is $3.00 per person per day. There are marked trails in the park, allowing for many hours of great hiking; much of it alongside the old West River Railroad trail... More

We stopped at Jamaica State Park for some light hiking with my dog. We were looking for a particular trail but missed it because the signs were not very clear. We eventually found our way to the trail that brought us to a peak about half a mile up. The views were worth the strenuous hike!!! There were multiple outcroppings... More

Jamaica State Park was very clean and well maintained. No electricity or water at sites, but they have water faucets throughout the campground. Bathrooms were very clean. You have to pay for hot water in the shower ($1.00 for 10 minutes) so bring quarters and there are very few showers so you may have to wait. Don't expect any kind... More
