Janes Island State Park

26280 Alfred J. Lawson Drive

Located near Crisfield on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Janes Island State Park offers visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the Chesapeake Bay. Within the mainland portion of the park are the campground, rental cabins and conference center, picnic areas and pavilions, and the boat ramp and marina.

The island portion of the park - Janes Island - includes over 2,900 acres of saltmarsh, over 30 miles of water trails, and miles of isolated pristine beaches. Although people have harvested the resources of the island for thousands of years, today the island is wild and seemingly untouched. A haven for birds, fish, crabs, and other saltmarsh dwellers, Janes Island provides visitors a tranquil setting to explore the wildlife of the Bay while enjoying the expansive vistas and stunningly beautiful sunsets. Whether fishing or crabbing, motor boating or paddling, or simply relaxing, visitors to Janes Island will experience a world still ruled by the weather, the tides, and the wildlife that first drew people to this very special place.

We took our two dog to Janes Island with our 22 foot 1980 RV. We rented a canoe from a woman named Billy Jean and she delivered it to the doc. We had a wonderful time. We did take a walk on a path and came out with ticks on our dogs and ourselves. We didn’t walk far from the water or our camp after that. The showers and bathroom were VERY clean and we felt super grateful for that. There was also a place to wash dishes that was very clean as well. The rangers were friendly and helpful. We would go back again and recommend this camping place to others.

I wouldn't recommend this camp to anyone. Most of the reviews forgot to mention that this place has a huge fly/mosquito issue. It is located next to a swamp so be prepared to experience a horror movie. Sprays, chemicals nothing works. I am not talking about a couple of flies here and there. 40-50 flies will attack you non-stop. This is a serious issue and all the campers experienced it when we were there. We slept at the car and left early because it was terrible. Under normal conditions it looks like a nice park and people working there are nice but doesn't really worth the time and money.

Nice clean park, well maintained bath houses. If you camp next to the water you can birdwatch. There are ospreys, herons, egrets and many little birds in the trees. Very quiet at night, a peaceful, relaxing place. We spent our honeymoon there. My only issue is they apparently don't have a group campground. A very large (30 or more) group of people were allowed to arrive after the onset of "Quiet Time" and occupy the two or three campsites behind us, which they loudly did for 2 1/2 hours. These were very nice people but they had set up their food/ dining area behind us and we had to tolerate a constant din of noise the entire day on Saturday 7am until 10pm, then awakened at 11:30 by a loud gathering. I notice in the reviews a similar thing happened last year, so maybe a group campground is in order and large groups could be better managed. For example, if the rules state no more than six on a campsite, well, 30 is WAY over 6.

Good clean camp sites, friendly rangers. Great for flat water kayaking and SUP paddling. Saw some people fishing but never saw anybody catch anything. There's potable water within easy reach of each camp site as are bathrooms.
