Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas

I wasn’t quite sure when I checked in that I would like it because my site was right by the front entrance alongside a highway frontage road. Plus, when I checked in, I was the only RV for 3 rows until you get to the longer term people. But it turned out ok and I was here for 2 days. The 3 rows in the front actually did get travelers at night who left in the morning so I was only by myself during part of the day. This KOA is right in the city so be prepared for lots of traffic. I took my little tow car out twice and was a little nervous driving around and missed my turns a few times.

This KOA consists of pull-thru rows in the front for short term stays and then back-ins, patio sites, and mobile homes farther back. However, unlike some RV parks that have permanent residents, this KOA is clean and quiet but be prepared for traffic noise as it sits right by the highway. The permanent sites in the back are quite large and the whole property has many full grown trees, giving it a forest-like setting. I paid $41 per day with my discount.

There is a laundry room and showers building next to a small swimming pool. And the little dog park is behind that. There were plenty of walking opportunities within this property but I did take the dogs out once to a dog park just across the highway. The most interesting thing about this KOA was the art gallery in the office. While the supplies selection is very limited, most of the building consists of an art gallery of cards and lithographs of vintage travel trailers. I enjoyed browsing and bought some holiday cards.

Someone I met at the dog park told me that if you follow the road called Stateline, which is next to the campground, it takes you to the post office and federal building which actually straddles two states. TripAdvisor states that this is the second most photographed post office in the United States. But other than the dog park, I didn’t do any sightseeing while here.
