Rusk KOA has the best of both worlds to offer it's campers. We are located in a small quiet little town. There isn't much through-traffic so its very peaceful for a camping atmosphere. Yet on the other hand we are in a great location being located right in the middle of Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Shreveport. All of which make great day trips with endless possibilities for entertainment.
