Janes Island State Park is split into two sections. The first section is the mainland portion of the park, which is mostly dedicated to the campgrounds, cabins to rent, picnic areas, pavilions, boat ramp, and marina. The island part of the park is the part that is actually called Janes Island and is made up of over 2900 acres of saltmarsh and pristine beaches.

Despite being easy reaching distance to a number of towns, and the fact that people have harvested the resources of the island for thousands of years, the beaches remain isolated and untouched, making it one of the best places to search for an RV rental in Somerset County. Outdoor lovers can experience a truly rural landscape that is still largely ruled by the tides and wildlife in Chesapeake Bay, and bordered on the west by Tangier Sound with neighboring towns of Crisfield, Pocomoke City, and Westover.

Getting Outdoors

Without a doubt, one of the most popular activities in the state park is to experience one of the many marked water trails. There are over 30 miles of trails to enjoy, with a number of transport options in which to make use of them, including a canoe or kayak. These trails are ideal for both novice and the more experienced paddler and is a great way to take in your natural surroundings from a very different perspective. Both canoes and kayaks are available to rent in the park, and with 25 boat slips, getting out onto the water couldn’t be easier.

The docks, marina, and number of streams make great fishing and crabbing spots. Crabbing in particularly popular activity, and in the warmer months the banks are filled with people trying to catch these critters. There is always the open waters of the Tangier Sound to make use of as well, where eager anglers can fish for striped bass, croaker, sea trout, flounder and bluefish. In the waters surrounding the park, Chesapeake Bay blue crab are in abundance, which is great for family fun. The fish cleaning station is conveniently located at the marina.

The island provides an ideal environment for a large number of birds, including migratory waterfowl and shorebirds. Visitors can pop into the nature center for more information on the best places in the park to see the birds, or for a bird's eye view, head up the observation tower with a pair of binoculars and see what you can see. It is activities like these that makes camping at Janes Island State Park particularly popular.
