Janes Island State Park reviews
Beautiful campground - sites among tall pines close to open water. Clean baths and hot showers. Friendly staff. Store has the essentials. The sites are clean with crushed stone pads and are close but.... more »
Must see all of it. Observation tower, Nature Center and fishing. Campsites too. We were on ly there a few minutes because of the heat. more »
Awesome infrastructure, fantastic staff. Beauty spot. Very well-maintained campsites for renters and RVs. Very nice restrooms, w hot showers. Kayak and canoe rentals available, which allow fantastic exploration of the marsh that makes up much of the State Park. Great store for camping supplies, and an excellent recreation/education room with displays of the local wildlife, games, books, and an indoor snack/dining room. All air-conditioned for the really hot days where your tent is just too hot. Almost every campsite is well-shaded, but it can still get hot. Nice fire pits for each site. Everything about this state park is wonderful.
It is a beautiful place and very restful. Wish the restrooms had been cleaner. Loved walking down to the water but wish there were a few garbage cans so maybe people wouldn't drop their trash on the ground. But a beautiful place.
