Good news, blog readers! The campground and boat ramp at Jacksonport State Park in Newport will reopen on Friday, June 17. The facilities have been closed over the past few weeks due to flooding.

“The floodwaters have receded from the park and the extensive maintenance repairs from the damage they caused are near completion, just in time for this weekend,” says Mark Ballard, park superintendent. “The park staff is looking forward seeing visitors once again enjoying the camping and boating here at Jacksonport.”

Repairs are also underway at the picnic area, swim beach and pavilion. These areas will more likely be closed for a few more weeks. Ballard states, “It is our goal to have the picnic area and pavilion open in time for the Independence Day holiday weekend.”

For more information on the reopening of the facilities, contact the park at 870-523-2143.
