The Jacksonport State Park is a state park and historic site in Jacksonport, Arkansas. It chronicles the history of the town from its promising early days in the 1800s.

The Jacksonport State Park features the historic 1872 Jacksonport courthouse. The site commemorates the times when the town was still a thriving river port. It also looks back to Civil War days when the town was considered as a crucial locale, causing both Confederate and Union forces to occupy it.

Rescued by the Jackson County Historical Society, the restoration of the Jacksonport courthouse was the beginning of the creation of the Jacksonport State Park. Today, it features 20 campsites, the historic courthouse, and the Mary Woods No. 2, which is an 1880s steamboat.
