This park is a well-kept secret gem on the banks of the White River. We stayed on a Saturday evening and there were only two other campers in the park. There are about 10 sites facing the river and all have very good views. There is a swimming beach, boat ramp and picnic pavilion as well. Verizon service was great, and there were 3 OTA television channels. We camped at Jacksonport State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take what you need because the nearest grocery store is a few miles up the road in Newport. Jacksonport has an old court house turned into a museum and this is a great little town for bike riding.

Small but very beautiful state park. There are only 20 rv spots. There is a beach but with the water on White River being low it was almost unusable because of the soft river bottom mud. The sites were large, level and spacious with a view of the river. No OTA channels but sites 8&9 are suitable for satellite dishes. Can't comment on the restrooms or showers because we did not use them. We camped at Jacksonport State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All sites are back-in but well spaced so it was an easy fit. 50 amp service, no water or sewer hookup, as is typical of most state parks. We got the out of state senior rate. My site (10) was near restrooms, which are very clean. (Exception, and this was just funny. First thing in the morning, both bathrooms were strewn with all the torn up paper that had been in the garbage container. I suspect raccoons because they could easily open the screen doors.) The restrooms are elevated to accommodate flood situations so there are two sets of stairs, but there is also a wheelchair ramp. So there were critters about, and lots of birds. We had a gorgeous view of the river as it glided by. We sat out there for an hour or two with drinks as the sun went down. We also went over to their historic courthouse and got a small tour of the very interesting museum. Jacksonport was a Civil War surrender site. I think this is an undiscovered gem and would not hesitate to return. The paddle wheel boat sank a few years ago and they are trying to raise money to restore it. I would give this a 10 if it had WiFI and sewer hookups. We camped at Jacksonport State Park in a Motorhome.

The place is beautiful and very well kept. Sites are paved. They are a bit short but long enough for a big rig if you back all the way to the curbs. We had to park the truck diagonal across the front but there was room. A dump is available but no sewer connection at the sites. Rate shown is the basic rate. There is a 25% discount for people over 62 if out of state. For in state residents, that is a 50% discount. We will certainly return if in the area. We camped at Jacksonport State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park-like setting along the White River. Level camp sites. Nice restroom facilities well cared for. Ranger ladies at check-in were friendly and helpful. Lots of Civil War history in the area and the park itself. Evidently they bring in a paddle wheel boat and moor it near the boat launch on the river and you can go aboard and tour it. It was not there when I was. Must have been too early in the season. We camped at Jacksonport State Park in a Motorhome.
