Description

The Tunstall Riverwalk Trail provides a relaxing walk from the trail head to the campground within Jacksonport State Park (1/2 Mile). The trail travels along the White River giving visitors views of this historic and recreational river. Wildflowers and wildlife are in abundance as the trail passes through the Tunstall Riverwalk Conservation Area. Wildflowers are planted annually giving this unique area much color as well as attracting a variety of birds, small animals such as fox, skunk, raccoon, squirrel, opossum and others. The Tunstall Riverwalk provides a great opportunity for educational studies. A park interpreter is on staff and provides nature hikes along the trail seasonally. School groups hike the trail for natural science studies.
The trail is classified as easy and provides leisurely walks on flat terrain for many local citizens. The park offers many other recreational and educational opportunities including museum tours through the 1872 historic Jacksonport Courthouse, boating on the White River, camping in our 20 site full hook-up (sewer dump-station) campground, picnicking in our 40 site picnic area, playground and a pavilion. Trail maintenance is provided by the state park.
