About Our Campground

Our campground features 350 acres of oak and pine forests along historical Mill Creek, which feeds into the lake. Stay in one of our 20 deluxe theme lodges, cottages or camping cabins that are all heated and cooled, or bring your RV and camp in one of our 75 RV sites.

For our guests who prefer to pitch, a tent we have water/electric sites or you can pitch your tent in the woods that surround the campground.

We know you will enjoy fishing, boating, swimming, canoeing, paddle boating, bird watching, cooking out, riding your ATV, walking the trails or just sitting around a campfire under the stars. The first bundle of firewood is free. So is our Wi-Fi. All our lodges, cottages, and cabins have over 200 channels from Satellite TV.

You can even fish from the porch of some of our cabins and match wits with some of the 3,000 fish stocked in our 10-acre pond.

We’re adding another 10-acre pond in 2014 and will place RV sites along the edge, providing even more waterfront sites by the end of this year.

We welcome your pets and have a great barn for boarding your horses, so your four-legged friends can have fun too. Groups are welcome. We have an individual stall horse barn with individual water and feeders and over 200 acres of riding trails.

You should make plans for a day trip to our area towns that have numerous points of interest including museums, historical court houses, homes and unique shopping and restaurants. Or, you can take a drive through the nearby Angelina National Forrest or Sabine National Forrest.

‘Big Weekend’ at Weatherford KOA May 9-10

care-camps-big-weekend-2014If you could make a difference in the life of a child with cancer, would you? Would you look for a way to bring them hope and help them heal? Would you find ways where they could feel “normal” again?

At KOA Care Camps, KOA says “yes.” And more importantly, it is doing something about it. Having cancer shouldn’t mean giving up the joys of childhood. That’s why the KOA Campground Owners Association created the Care Camps Trust – to help children who have cancer enjoy carefree time focusing on fun, friends and activities instead of on their illness.

Campers can help out on this project during Care Camps “Big Weekend” May 9-10. Stay as a paying guest Friday, May 9, at Weatherford KOA and get Saturday, May 10, for free. The campground is located off Interstate 20, just west of Fort Worth.

During Care Camps Big Weekend, participating KOAs will offer campers the ability to donate to KOA Care Camps through several special, fun events and activities – or feel free to drop your donation directly into one of the handy collection stations you’ll see in the KOA Camp Stores.

Now in its 11th year, the program has raised more than $5 million to help send children with cancer to KOA Care Camps across North America. These 56 specialized, medically equipped facilities offer a true summer camp experience to children undergoing treatment or recovering from cancer. The KOA Care Camps Trust distributes $500,000 annually to these camps to help send children to the summer camps of their dreams.

KOA’s mission is to allow these amazing children to enjoy the joy, healing and freedom that come from attending specialized summer camps where they can just be themselves. Surrounded by other kids just like them, they swim, go on hikes, sing songs and create memories that help get them through the tough times. They heal physically and emotionally, and hope flourishes.
