      Once a thriving riverside port and the seat of Jackson County, the little town of Jacksonport was a strategic location during the Civil War. Occupied at times by both armies, it particularly served as a mustering point for the Confederates. A monument and a restored cannon commemorating the town's historic significance sit on the lawn of the restored 1872 courthouse and adjoining museum. Nearby, on the banks of the White River, is an RV campground overlooking a beach.

      If you go:
      Open all year. The visitors center is open daily until 5:00. The museum is closed on Mondays, except when the Monday falls on a holiday. Beach restrooms are closed during the winter. There is no fee to picnic or swim at the beach. No lifeguard is on duty.
