Jackson Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 21 photos

Jackson has a population of approximately 3,500 and is the county seat of Jackson County, for a small city there is a lot to do for the energetic, from walking or cycling six miles of trails around Jackson and along the Des Moines or playing a round at the Jackson Golf Course, for those who prefer to watch, there is the regular action every Saturday night during the summer at the Jackson Speedway.

Must see sights/attractions include: the Olson-Slaabakken Cabin, Fort Belmont, Jackson County Fair Village, the Jackson County Historical Society and Museum and Jackson County Courthouse to name but a few.

    Excellent tips on Jackson. I pass through this area several times a year. This is a rich cultual area with many Scandinavian, Norwegian and German familes. All the best!
