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.
The campground offers 42 RV sites with level paved pads and full hookups and 1- and 2-room kabins with cable TV. The park is blessed with beautiful pine trees, porch swings throughout the park and flowers on every picnic table.
Take a stroll down Wildscape Trail, a 20-minute walk through the trees, meadows, creek and turtle cove pond of the campground (in top lefthand corner of map). Marked by prominent blue diamond trail markers, visitors learn about the trees, plants, birdhouses, turtles and ducks that inhabit the trail. See all 9 of the Tree Faces.
Nearby points of interest include the Texarkana Golf Ranch; the Ace of Clubs house, a unique home with 22 sides; the Perot Theatre; the Oaklawn Opry; Historic Old Washington; Millwood and Wright-Patman lakes; the picturesque Cossatot River; the Regional Arts Center; Music City Texas in Linden; and the Texarkana Post Office, which straddles the state line, putting part of it in Texas and the other part in Arkansas.
From Dallas go east on I-30 and take Exit 223. Stay left on access road. Turn left on turnaround and turn right into the campground.
