Baytown Celebrates the 4th of July

The community has a great July 4th celebration on tap for residents of Baytown / Galveston Bay KOA that includes the traditional elements of a parade, patriotic music and fireworks. The festivities begin the evening of July 3rd with musical entertainment by Ryan Guidry, Casey Weston and the Marshall Tucker Band.

On July 4th, the events start at 5 p.m. with a parade followed by the National Anthem. Next on the agenda is a concert by Cory Morrow, after which will be one of our most beloved patriotic songs, “America the Beautiful.” At 8 p.m., another musician, Robert Earl Keen, will entertain, and the event will end with a fireworks extravaganza. You won’t want to miss this grand commemoration of our nation’s birth.

We welcome you to our park, where you can fish or swim, as well as enjoy attractions in the city. Visit our website and reserve your spot today.


Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Hidden beneath the rugged West Texas landscape of cactus and thorny shrubs are glorious wonders to behold in the underground world of caves. A visit to Carlsbad Caverns National Park will be a memorable outing for campers staying at Van Horn KOA. You can view the fascinating formations of the limestone caves either through a ranger-guided tour or through a self-guided tour, where you can go at your own pace.

The exceptional beauty of this area is not confined to the underground; it extends to the night sky as well. As the park is away from the lights of local communities, it is a prime location for viewing the spectacular display of starry hosts. Star parties will be held on July 14th and August 18th, where you can view the Milky Way and other celestial splendors. Telescopes will be provided and ranger guided programs will be available to impart information on astronomy and cultural folklore.

A West Texas vacation can be quite rewarding. Visit our website and book your spot today.

Rangers Games

Few activities exemplify the pleasures of summer as much as a great baseball game. Those who stay at Dallas / Arlington KOA are close to Rangers Ballpark, where they can attend the exciting games between the Texas Rangers and the Colorado Rockies on June 22nd to 24th.

Other summertime activities include entertainment in an open-air venue. On June 15th to 17th, you can attend Shakespeare in the Park, where you can see the Shakespearean theatrical production of Twelfth Night. Head over to Samuel Grand Anphitheater to watch this delicious comedy involving jealousy and mistaken identity. The sidesplitting humor of this play, experienced in a casual park setting, guarantees a delightful evening.

If a rodeo is more your cup of tea, you can attend the Mesquite ProRodeo Series. Every Friday and Saturday night all summer long, you can watch the heart-pounding competition of cowboys and cowgirls.

The wide range of choices between a baseball game, a Shakespearean play and a rodeo reveal that Dallas has it all! Visit our website and make your reservations today.

Drag Boat Races

An event to put on your calendar is the Showdown in San Angelo Drag Boat Races on June 22nd to 24th. Residents of San Angelo KOA can see one of the fastest races on the water, with boats going up to 250 miles per hour in fewer than four seconds. You’ll be able to talk to the drivers, see the boats up close and shop for souvenirs of this exciting event.

San Angelo is a great place to celebrate our nation’s independence, as the city will provide an all-American fireworks display, as well as pops concert. The 25th Annual Pops Concert, one of the largest patriotic celebrations in Texas, will be held at the San Angelo River Stage on July 3rd. This extravaganza will include a military march-in and Fort Concho cannons, as well as music from the Community Band and San Angelo Symphony. Your heart will swell with pride as you listen to the beloved patriotic songs and watch the fireworks light up the night sky.

This area offers visitors much entertainment year round. Visit our website and reserve your spot today.
