At Rusk KOA Again Still a Good Stop
A check of this page shows we stayed here when we left Texas in May 2016; we are back, passing through on our return to Texas for the Winter.
The Workampers who were experienced with this park tragically had to rush home to Louisiana where they lost their home to flooding.
A new crew of very nice people are here working very hard at catch-up.
This is a park cut into the piney woods of East Texas. The woods border the park and make landscaping and grounds maintenance very difficult.
The soil is sand mixed with many millennia of pine needles and coaxing grass is a chore and a knack. This is still a nice park, we like it, but it is not as sharp as it was.
There are a variety of sites. Be careful what you ask for, it can be expensive. All sites are gravel with well placed utilities. They are long enough to leave your tow attached. They are all level, packed gravel.
There is a huge rectangular rally site with full utilities and rally hall.
Some sites have cement patios with furniture, all have a picnic table and fire ring. There is also a dog pen that encloses trees; my dog thought it was great. Check-in at the office was easy and friendly the camp store is very nice. The grounds are well lit at night.
The ubiquitous Kabins that we are familiar with are placed in the woods. A neat spot for a cabin stay. Much larger, self-contained Kabins, which are more like park models are scattered about the open RV sites.
There is also a pool and small children's playground. My wife and I found hiking trails in the woods.
Wi-Fi was very good, and cable was passable: ok on satellite channels but fuzzy for local stations
The bathrooms and showers are all sparking clean and very comfortable.
We used them. The laundry also looked up-to-date.
The park is very quiet and relaxing. We'll be ready to drive again tomorrow.
Not Typical KOA
This is unlike any KOA we've been to, except everything is yellow and begins with a "K". It is off the beaten path, not near a highway. You won't see advertising signage, use your GPS, we did and it worked.
The park is unbelievably quiet no games, no jumping pillows, no hayrides, or nightly movies, and no traffic noise.
The campground is literally cut into a piney woods, the Loblolly pines have been cleared from the rv sites, they are notoriously unstable. The grounds have been replanted with shade trees. This heavy pine forest totally surrounds the park. It is deep and dark. If we hadn't heard owls at night, we would have heard nothing. There are street lights and each electrical pedestal has a welcome light atop.
The sites are very big and spacious. We never unhooked our tow.
Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The deluxe sites have a poured patio and table and chairs. There is lots of grass on all sides.
There are a lot of Kabins. There are four Log style Kabins that have been cut deep into the woods. I have never seen such a cool setting for these ubiquitous Kabins. There is also tenting in the woods.
Larger cedar sided Kabins with porches and decks are set among the rv sites. They resemble KOA styles but look a lot like Park-Models.
The office is clean and neat with lots of camping stuff for sale.
Bathrooms and showers are sparkling and cleaned daily. They are new and very well equipped. There is also an enclosed dog area. A very nice looking pool and a small equipped playground for family fun.
The managers here are very nice. Even bought us milk when they went to the store. This has been a very welcome respite after seven hours of driving. We stayed two days to just relax. KOA doesn't use the word, but this park could be a KOA Retreat.

Great Folks, Great Park
We have had 4 stays at this KOA. The first was in May 2009 due to the death of a close relative. I (a woman) towed our travel trailer solo and stayed here for several days on my own. There were a few other parks in the area that were less expensive, but I wanted someplace I could feel safe and comfortable. Owners and staff were very, very comforting and helpful. Husband and I have been back 3 times since, even taking delivery of our 5th wheel at this park! Owners were very accommodating. These were the cleanest/nicest restrooms/showers we have seen! WiFi was strong. Pool was clean and refreshing. Enjoyed campfires in the fire rings. Sites have picnic tables/patios. Grounds very well maintained. Park is conveniently located to Rusk for supplies and was a breeze to find. Might be a bit pricey, but it is indeed a very, very nice park. Owners live on site and are proactive in park operation. Would definitely stay there again.
