A great wooded location. On the river. Lots of great hiking trails.
find something that you dont like about this park… go ahead , ill wait.
small town general store, no cell service and a gorgeous back drop is a perfect spot to just unwind from the real world
Very beautiful campground with a few great hikes. We had the whole campground to ourselves during the week. Camped right on the river on one of their lean to sites. A little pricey but worth it. Large sites. Cleanest campground I've been in. Everyone was so kind and helpful.
I love the area around Jamaica State Park and have stayed a few times! There is plenty of trails in the area and you can go to the waterfall/rock slides and take a dip in the pools. The area is beautiful and good food across the street!
My girlfriend and I stayed here May 11-13th. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the tent and lean-to sites were all kept very clean. Bathrooms and showers were also kept nice and clean which is always a plus. Our tent site was very spacious, you could of easily accommodated a family of four with a large tent. Some sites, however, were a little close together, so if you're looking for total privacy choose your site wisely. We hiked the west river trail (which leads right out of the campground) to Hamilton falls which is a gravel closed road that follows the west river upstream 2 miles to Hamilton falls trail which then leads up hill for another mile to the falls. People have lost their lives at these falls so be extra cautious with children around the falls. Overall our experience at Jamaica state park was great. I will definitely be returning to this campground in the future.
I've visited this park and campground numerous times! The sites are great and well cared for with friendly staff and clean amenities. Book your site early to get a lean-to or a site near the river…it's stunning in the morning with the mountain mist rolling through!! If you're into kayaking book early for the annual dam release event (September)…the river becomes a great spot for some rapids! Hike the scenic trail and take a right upward to Hamilton Falls, a gorgeous waterfall!! But heed the warning sign, people really have died at this waterfall, as recently as summer of 2016. There's also another waterfall (Pikes Falls) - a short drive away and Stratton Mountain/Resort is not too far either. Also dog friendly 🐶
Great spot near the river with a flat trail and a waterfall near by.
Jamaica is a nice little state park nestled in the woods and by a nice River. Very family friendly and close to Manchester and Stratton and Bromley Mountains. We have returned many years and find it buggy every time but otherwise a great experience.
The campsites were beautiful with the river behind us. Not to many people there so we're got the best spot. The bathrooms are sanitary and are not port-a-potties. For us, they also had a playground to play at, and a boat dock to kayak. The bugs were not fun in the summer. At night, we all had a great sleeping night with no crazy neighbors or dogs. I would recommend it to anyone with children or who love to move. And a few miles from there was the ski resort, Bromli Mnt. With fun activities to do in the summer or winter!
