Awesome Hike

Wonderful and fairly easy 3 miles one way hike to Hamilton Falls. A bonus was the water release made for some great whitewater rafting watching!

Lots of great swimming in the river. Campground is quiet at night. Price for firewood is reasonable. Sites are clean.

Have been going to Jamaica St Park for years. Starting when our kids were 3 and 5. The youngest just graduated college.... So this was our first time there without kids. It was great to remember all the fun times hiking, bouldering and swimming in the various swimming holes that the river provides. Today we were just there for a... More

This is one of the many Vermont parks. This one has a number of picnic tables along a narrow river that flows through the park. It has restroom facilities and spaces for camping. There is also a nice rather flat path along the small river that provides for a relaxing stroll. The picnic tables vary in size, and the amount... More

Take the detour to Hamilton falls...worth the effort! The trail along West River is shady and easy. Beautiful scenery. River sounds are everpresent

This campground is small and the sites have plenty of room.Great playground and swim hole.You can also walk up the trail and swim in different areas in the river. We did the hike to Hamilton Falls. Very worth the climb. The campground is old fashioned and quaint like I remember from my childhood. I lived it and would go again

Bike flat rail trail 2.5 miles to Ball dam and take switchback trail to to for great views. Stop on trail and hike one mile up to Hamilton Falls. Great swimming. If... More

I went on a beautiful hike with my son in Jamaica State Park during my recent visit to Vermont. There were many different hike options and a clean, inviting area to swim.

My husband and I are mid-shaped hikers, that is, not in shape, not fully out of shape. We decided to drive from our inn near Dover and take in the waterfall at Jamaica St. Park. It was beyond worth it. We took the bottom trail, a nice easy hike for a mile, and then began our ascension. This trail is,... More

I've been camping at Jamaica for 35 years and it hasn't changed a bit. The campground is immaculately clean and the sites are large enough to provide privacy. The sound of the river rushing by salmon hole lulls you fast asleep. Hike to nearby Hamilton and Pike Falls. Stop by D & K General Store for hot coffee and a... More
