Where are we going today?

Venture to Jones Lake State Park and view one of the greatest geological mysteries of the eastern United States the phenomenon of the Carolina bays. Adjacent to the Bladen Lakes State Forest and home of two natural lakes, Jones and Salters lakes, the 2,208-acre park is a nature lover's delight. Peaceful surroundings and a variety of facilities, including a trail with several outlooks that circles Jones Lake, make this state park a favorite for hiking, picnicking, swimming, fishing and camping.

    Amazing Park to visit during the winter. You will likely have the park all to yourself and the lake is beautiful at that time of year. Will continue to go back for years to come.
