Steamboats made Jacksonport a thriving river port in the 1800s.  During the Civil War, the town was occupied by both Confederate and Union forces because of its critical locale.

Jacksonport became county seat in 1854, and a stately, two-story brick courthouse was constructed in 1869.  The town began to decline in the 1880s when bypassed by the new railroad.  The county seat was moved in 1891 to nearby Newport, and Jacksonport's stores, wharves and saloons soon vanished.

Today the park's museums, the 1869 courthouse and the nearby Mary Woods No. 2 stern wheel paddleboat, and interpretive programs share the story of this historic river port.

The park offers 20 Class A campsites, a swimming beach on the White River, standard pavilion, picnic sites, playground and the Tunstall River Walk Trail.
