Owners Marshal and Sherri Gray welcome their guests to the San Angelo KOA, a 10-acre campground covered with native mesquite trees.

Enjoy our 50-amp campsites, our 70-foot-long, big rig friendly RV sites, Wi-Fi, cable TV in the game room, barbecue pits and a 1,200-square-foot covered picnic area (shown here) that can be reserved for group use.

We’re located in a historic spot between the Hill Country and the rolling plains. Our community started as a military outpost – Fort Concho – to protect the settlers as they moved West after the Civil War.

The lawless town of “Santa Angela” cropped up across the river. Today’s contemporary attractions include boating and water sports on Lake Nasworthy (less than a mile from the KOA), the planetarium at Angelo State University and the beautiful river walk through town. You can shop for antiques, visit museums and play golf at one of our three public golf courses.

Details

Nearby attractions include Fort Concho National Historic Landmark, founded in 1867. Seventeen buildings on the fort grounds have been restored giving the visitors an authentic feel for the frontier days of the mid-1880s.

The ASU Planetarium is the fourth largest planetarium in the nation among universities. Here you can view an array of programs for the public with three-dimensional views of the universe.

Located on the shore of Lake Nasworthy, the Nature Center serves as a natural science and natural history museum, complete with native-plant gardens and a variety of indigenous flora and fauna.

Goodfellow AFB is just minutes from the campground.
