Had a local person take me for a motorcycle ride up and around the reservoir and it was in the late evening and it was really nice and very picturesque. Well worth the short ride up and around.

Either for a Family Picnic or Reunion what better place than the Jamestown Reservoir. Fishing is excellent and they have plenty of room for boaters who want to water ski or Jet Ski. Very nice camping facilities. Park and play ares for the kiddies. A little something for almost everyone.

We had a break while at a conference and wanted a bit of fresh air and nature. The reservoir is well kept & clean, with nice path for biking, walking, running. An island with disc golf course was a relaxing place to go for an afternoon walk. A gift to this area.

Jamestown has a true hidden treasure at the Reservoir! We explored the beaches, the water and the Island. Enjoyed sundown at the Island - what a great view!

Spent some time touring here while in Jamestown and found it to be pretty and with multiple scenic views from roads around it. Did not fish it but locals seem to like fishing here.

Looking for birds. Not very good. Pleasant driving around the reservoir. Jamestown is a pretty little town.

I was done with work early and it was a nice day. Jumped in the car and headed for the Dam. Great place to walk. I have be told the fishing is good but didn't have the rod and reel with.

I live about 15 minutes walk from here and if in Jamestown it makes a lovely afternoon with lots of watersports, fishing and green space for picnics.

Really a beautiful location, love the island for a picnic or frisbee golfing. The beach is nice, but the water is kind of dirty--a shower is sort of needed after swimming.

This is a panoramic 3 miles of walking and biking along the reservoir. After a long day in the car, we enjoyed stretching out on the parkway which was not busy at all. There are benches along the way. Also, swimming and fishing at one point along the parkway.
