Enjoyed one of many trails. Lovely lake access for swimming and lounging. Trails well maintained and friendly staff
Weekdays offer almost a solo trail experience

Very nice state park with great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Many good trails suitable for easy hiking.

Lake James is truly a great place to relax. From swimming to boating to fishing and camping and everything between Lake James is the place to get away. Campsites are excellent with fire pit and pads for tents. They also have sites for travel trailers. There is nothing as pretty as the sun setting in the mountains over Lake James.

This is a beautiful lake! Gorgeous surroundings and really nice fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, camping, but very limited swimming. Really limited! It is a shame in my opinion. They have so much to offer with what should be lovely swimming areas but they have designated a small beach area with a small place to swim for tons of people. My family was very disappointed. We did have a great picnic and hike. Very fun, but we probably won't go back here. We love to swim.

This site was so much fun. we camped right next to the water. campsite # 12. You do have to walk a little distance to the site, but they provide a wheel barrow is you need it. Bathrooms were clean. Cicada everywhere though, but they don't bother you. it was a great weekend.
