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.

One site has electrical and water hookups and is available for both tents and recreational vehicles. However, the park does not offer a dump station for recreational vehicles.

Group camping: is available for organized groups. The site includes a fire circle and grill, picnic tables, benches and a pit toilet. Drinking water and restrooms with showers are located nearby. The site is available by reservation only. No more than 35 people can occupy the site.

Boating and fishing are popular pastimes at Jones Lake. A road to the lake for small craft is located at the west side of the picnic area.
