  • We are on our Arkansas State Parks tour, and Jacksonport was the next on the list. It is is still considered off-season, so there was a lack of firewood stocked. Our Park Ranger was very courteous and...  more »

  • Looked like a nice spot for fishing.
  • This is such a beautiful park, but it has been deserted every time we have stayed here. The facilities are excellent, and the RV sites are paved and perfectly level. Camping alongside the river is very peaceful. This a great stop for those who like to avoid the interstate highways when traveling with an RV. It is easy to get to from US Highway 67. The historic Courthouse tour is fun and informative.
  • I visited this park and it is beautiful but there are way too many cockleburs, you can't walk across the grass especially where the beach is. Not having a weekly rate did not help at all. We travel and stay extended times as many do. Get rid of the cockleburs and get a weekly rate and you might have more visitors.
  • Well kept park and architecture from the 1800s and a great place to learn about the surrender of the North Arkansas Army to the Union Army, and a bit about the inland steamboat history of the region. The person on post is usually torn between duty at the courthouse and at the gift shop, so if you don't find anyone at one of those spots, check the other!
  • A beautiful state park on the banks of the White River. The park is well maintained and the staff very helpful. Pet friendly also. My husband and I stayed for a week at an RV site.
