Jamaica State Park reviews
Stopped by for the afternoon to hike. Well marked trails and clean bathrooms. Plenty of rocks to walk on and stop for a swim. We went to the dam; not the impressive but different nonetheless... more »
We visited the park in the winter, so there were only a few people around, but the landscape was gorgeous and the camping sites looked well-maintained. We went for a pleasant hike with our 6 year old.... more »
Staff were super nice and helpful. Wood and ice available to buy on site. Campsites were clean and flat - my only complaint is how close the sites are to one another. They are very close together - you will see and hear all of your neighbors. Loved the multipurpose trail as well as the hiking trails accessible right from your camp site. Will certainly be bringing back the bikes next time for use on the multipurpose trail.
Very clean and quiet campground very well maintained the bathrooms were very clean and serviced every day the staff brought us our firewood because we were on motorcycles which was very clean dry firewood! There is hiking right from the campground and a great store less than a mile away
