I spent three great nights at this gem of a park. The sunsets on the marshes of Janes Island are really a sight to be seen. The staff was very kind and helpful. The sites and facilities are very well maintained. Nothing but positive feelings! I’m thinking of going again soon to do the kayak trails.

This place is awesome. Nice csmoing spots, good fishing and crabbing off of the piers and wall. We caught a few small spot and more than a dozen crabs in a few hours.

Nicest camping bathrooms I have ever seen!

They rent small kayaks and paddle boats and have lots of waterways to use them. If you like camping and anything water related, than this is a great place!

This is a clean and well-maintained park and campground. The staff are friendly and helpful. They have multiple programs for kids and adults. The camp store is one of the best I've ever seen and stocked with just about everything you could possibly need. You can fish, go crabbing, buy bait right there. If you forgot your rod they'll even loan you one. Over 30 Miles of Waterway and beaches to explore. You can rent Kayaks canoes and paddle boards. Top it all off with a nice camp fire and a beautiful sunset.
