Jackson Lake State Park Professional Review and Guide
"This is a small park, with a 242-acre lake surrounded by 106 acres of woods and fields. It’s long been a nice place to relax, picnic, camp, swim, and fish. The water situation will surely impact visitation, though, if it hasn’t already. But you shouldn’t abandon this park altogether. The campground is still very pleasant and there are enough things to do in the immediate vicinity of the park to make this a nice place to stay. Cooper Hollow Wildlife Area is just south of the park and offers some good fishing and hunting, while the town of Jackson, just about twenty-five minutes due north of the park, has some interesting history. The Buckeye Iron Furnace State Memorial is home to a reconstructed furnace typical of the region a century ago."
