Red Rock Ranch Tours

In addition to a view of unique geographical wonders and vegetation, you will see an abundance of wildlife and breathtaking sunsets. Visitors may choose to tour the area through riding in a confortable vehicle, or they may opt for one of the hiking tours, which range from 2 hours to an all-day duration. Those having the endurance for a several-hour hike up a canyon will be rewarded by reaching a spot that overlooks the Rio Grande Valley.

Another fabulous area to explore is the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, an area of tranquility and blissful quietude that has a wonderful specimen of a fossilized reef. This pristine wilderness is also a paradise for hikers, birdwatchers and wildlife observers, who can trod through miles of woodland canyons and lush springs.

Traders Village

traderThose at Dallas / Arlington KOA who adore the sport of shopping will have a grand time going to Traders Village in Grand Prairie, termed by the locals as America’s #1 Flea Market. This term is appropriate because the market has more than 3,500 dealers every weekend who sell practically everything under the sun. Additionally, it is unique, since patrons are permitted to trade as well as buy merchandise.

Part of the appeal of shopping in such places is the thrill of the hunt, as you never know what delights you will come across. I once found Currier and Ives glasses at a flea market for a quarter a piece.

So don your comfortable walking shoes and head over to Traders Village for a day of browsing. By no means is the merchandise restricted to items for women. Men can find bargains on tools, auto accessories and electronics, in addition to sporting gear and sports memorabilia. Items for women are too numerous to mention but include furniture, soap and clothing, along with jewelry, cookware and gourmet coffee.

Our park is a drivable distance to many attractions in the area. Visit our website and make your reservations today.
