Winter Camping at Its Finest

rayburnWinter camping is a wonderful thing in the piney woods of East Texas. In the evenings when the temperatures fall, campers at Brookeland / Lake San Rayburn KOA will be toasty warm in the cozy cabins, cottages and lodges.

Find renewal in the outdoors through renting one of the canoe paddle boats, fishing in the stocked pond or hiking through some of the extensive acreage of trails. Equestrians are welcome to bring their horses, as our covered horse barn and riding trails amply accommodate their needs. Bring the whole family because children will love playing in either of the park’s two playgrounds.

Once you arrive and find you’ve forgotten some camping essential, you may find what you need in our onsite store, which has camping supplies and propane, as well as food products and drinks. This convenience could save you a trip into town.

The facilities and amenities in our campground make it a fabulous spot for family reunions and getaways, and the quiet environment is ideal for group retreats. As an extra plus, our current hot deal during December offers a 20% discount on all sites to church groups who wish to book a weekend. Visit our website and reserve your spot today.
