My favorite state park in Maryland. Waterfront is beautiful. Best feature is the grassy waterfront where you can fish, play and relax next to the water. Not a swimming park unless you have a boat to actually cruise to Janes Island! Was told the bugs would eat us alive. Nope! Not bad at all. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Cristfield for dinner and water trips.

Janes Island State Park, Crisfield, MD - April 30, 2015 with electric hookups and a Maryland Senior Pass (50% off) for Sunday to Thursday camping the cost was around $17.

This campground is on the Daugherty Creek Canal leading to the Chesapeake Bay in southern MD. Our site was right on the canal in the electric loop where we watched the birds, boats and sunsets. There are three loops some with or without electric and specific pet loops for a total of 104 campsites. It was beautiful set under tall trees and the sites are well taken care of with fire pits and brand new picnic tables. There is a marina with boat slips, and over thirty miles of six color-coded canoe/kayak trails of the Janes Island Water Trail, where one can stop at some sandy beaches. Boaters can find excellent crabbing and fishing opportunities - license needed. The park also has cabins to rent some open year round. There is also a picnic area, playground area, ball field and volleyball court. Environmental education programs are year round and take place at the nature center. We never have camped here before and we loved it. The girl at check in was very pleasant and the rangers patrolled often during the day and night. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers hot. Great place to camp! We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Great Park, nice sites, the horse flys can get real pesty, great water trails. The bad: The store is only open from 9am - 5pm & they will not rent Kayaks/canoes if the wind speed is 10mph or above. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is Friday/Saturday for electric and without Maryland Senior Discount (only available Sunday through Thursday). Rate includes a $4.50 per night reservation/transaction fee. Construction is ongoing so facilities were limited (no camp store, inconvenient kayak/canoe rental). Campsites are quite nice, well defined, level and clean. The bath house is modern and clean. Our site (#71) was not a waterfront site but did have a nice view of the water and the marshlands of Jane's Island. The park was quiet and had only a few campers the weekend we visited (Mother's Day). We stayed on site 71. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

The Good....This is a nice park for fishing, crabbing, and kayaking/boating. There are some geocaches in the park and surrounding area. The bicycling on local roads is great, with little traffic and considerate drivers that gave us lots of space. Crisfield has a museum worth seeing. The Bad....biting flies and mosquitos are so bad that you have to be covered in bug spray from head to toe, and some still attack. While we had a great view of the docks, I wouldn't chose a site near there again, due to the dead fish smell that wafts over from the fish cleaning station. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

At first this park don't look like much but the fishing is great. The staff is very helpful and nice. Love the town that is close by with local catches to eat. If you love to fish and crab this is a great park. We have been there twice in the last month. Restrooms are also very clean and they have a nature center and activities for the kids. One of my favorites We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Tent.

OK, if you like blue shell crabs you will love this campground as the town of Crisfield is the blue shell capital of the world! You could even catch your own in the campground. This state park has weekly programs for the kids we were there on Memorial Day Weekend and went to the Soft Shell Crab Festival in Crisfield. The campground was in great shape. The waterfront sites are to die for, they are as good as it gets. We had a site on the outside edge that even allowed us to get satellite, however if you are trying to get satellite stay on the outside and you might have a shot. We had a 36ft fifth wheel and didn’t have any problems but realize it is a state park and the larger RV’s might have a problem so check out the website and pick out you site there. The campground is the finest state park on the Eastern Shore (in my opinion), however there are some issues that are beyond the control of the capable and friendly staff, the bugs! They are bad including ticks and mosquitoes so make sure you pack your repellent. I also don’t like their dump station (I didn’t dump) and I wish they had 50 amp. This is a wonderful state park and a wonderful town with plenty to do. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park! We had a waterfront site this time. We were camping with friends in the cabins and we had site 73 - it was perfect. The bugs were bad at times - especially the green heads! But we had a good breeze most of the time and it kept them under control most of the time. We kayaked out to the beach and went swimming - the water was unbelievably warm! Beautiful views, fishing and crabbing for the kids, great staff and awesome campsites. Can't ask for much more. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is extremely clean. Beautiful sites set in a woodsy environment, with canoe/kayak trails in the marsh heading to the Tangier Sound. Beautiful sunsets, and biking distance to Crisfield, a watermans delight. Good places to crab and fish. A playground for the little ones, and piece and quiet for the older ones. A grocery store nearby and plenty of restaurants in the area. If it had full hookups I'd give this park a 10. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this park for quiet, rest and relaxation. The kayaking opportunities are excellent with GPS waypoints available on the park web site. We try to stay in one of the waterfront sites in loop B to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The bugs can be bad: we bring a screen tent and lots of repellent, but all of the water nearby is the reason why they're here. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Truck Camper.

Overall, this park is a gem. Sites are under tall pines, clean, generally decent size. Park staff quite active and helpful. Memorial Day weekend was sold out: but never got noisy or rowdy. It's a beautiful waterfront marina with kayak rentals to explore marsh trails through Janes Island. Restrooms are barely OK: just not adequate to handle a heavy tenter crowd. Large mix of non-electric sites encourage tenters. Water available from taps throughout the park; fill up before going to your site. Poor signage for Park Entrance, Registration. WiFi readily available downtown. We would definitely return. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park! Large, level sites. Lots of shade. The canoeing/kayaking was amazing. We were camping with extended family and the nine of us paddled out to the beach area. It was beautiful and as untouched as you can get these days. The bathhouses are clean, if a bit worn. There were bugs near the marshes, but it was July, so to be expected. We will definitely come here again!! We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This would be a 9 if it were not for the mosquitoes. Tons of wildlife to see, boating, and have fun crabbing on the Daugherty Creek Canal. The office/store doesn't stock too much foodstuffs (Crisfield is only two miles down the road) but it does have fishing supplies, rent kayaks and canoes, and have a variety of ever important bug sprays! There are only a few sites that allow pets, but they all backup to a meadow area for walking your dog. The shower house was clean, but could use an update - the door lock did not work well, and hooks and soap holders were in dis-repair. A beautiful place though, we'll enjoy again. We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very well run and kept up state park. The park is heavily treed but right on a canal overlooking a large marsh area. AWESOME water trails with a pristine private beach on the Bay. Nice staff, no crowds and best of all NO GOLF CARTS! We camped at Janes Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
