Visit the RV Art Gallery at Texarkana KOA

rv_art_gallery_logo_nokoa2Winter Texans and summer vacationers looking for an overnight stay will love the easy access location and full service as well as unique amenities at the Texarkana, Texas KOA.

Jerry Bergman has been the manager since the facility joined the KOA system in 2000 and Jerry’s customer service philosophy is to keep his campground up to date, unique and fun.

For starters, this is the nation’s only campground featuring an RV art gallery. The gallery (shown on right side of map below) celebrates the RV lifestyle in the works of commissioned artists, print reproduction or notecards, magnets, books, videos, calendars, jewelry, china, clothes and other unique collectibles. Items range from $6 to $166. Learn more about the art gallery at http://www.rvartgallery.com.

The campground also has its own “KOA Theater” where the movie classic, “The Long Long Trailer,” is shown nightly at dusk. Starring Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz, the 1959 comedy is a hilarious celebration of the RV lifestyle.

Mystery 

You like mysteries? Then check out the “Light of Saratoga,” also known as the “Ghost Road” of Saratoga, the “Saratoga Light” and “Bragg Road Ghost Light” by local residents. Located on a dirt road, it is a light that may appear and disappear at random during the dark of night without explanation. The most popular story surrounding this legend is that a railroad worker was decapitated in a railway accident, and the light is that of his lantern as his ghost searches endlessly for his head.

Speaking of ghosts, Polk County has its own ghost town located in the community once known as Swartout.

Eagles' nest located near our campground.

Bald eagles frequently fly over our campground.

However, there’s no mystery about Eddie the eagle, one of two eagles that routinely fly over our campground. An eagle’s nest is visible from our campground.

In 1912, oil was discovered west of the town attracting thousands to the area and by 1918, an approximate 20,000 people had settled around the oilfield. This part of the town’s history was chronicled in the film “Boom Town” starring Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy.
