Turn east on FM 343 from Hwy 69 at flashing light. Go 1/2 mile to top of hill. KOA is on the left. GPS: N31.791495, W95.118546. Don't use GPS as the iron ore in East Texas will send you in different directions!
We were checked in by a staff member named Kimberly, who treated us like family throughout our family reunion weekend. All facilities were clean and in good repair. We were extremely pleased with our first KOA experience.

Kimberly was an amazing Hostess. Always checking to see if we needed anything. Cabins were great, neat & clean. Grounds beautiful. Pool was great and the dining hall was just what we needed for our family reunion. Will definitely go back.

Did not have horseshoes or tvs as advertised. Manager closed pool early every night of our stay. Unsupervised children were at the pool. Was quoted the wrong price over the phone. Facility was nice and extremely clean.

Beautiful area! Very clean and friendly grounds and management. So sad the location is closing! Would definitely want to come back. Great cabin!

I am extremely disappointed to learn that this KOA closed as of 04/20/2014. It was our first visit but we wish it were not our last.

Beautiful, well maintained campground. We stayed in one of the rustic cabins that are tucked down in the tall pine trees. Beautiful, quite section. Bathrooms and showers were clean, modern and updated. Only complaint is that the common area of the showers are shared with men and women. They have individual shower rooms but no area for women to dry their hair.

It was a smaller campground but very nice and well kept. The restrooms and showers were some of the cleanest we've seen. The owners are very nice and have some great ideas for future improvements.

Everyone was so nice & helpful. My dog loved the fenced in dog area and so did I!

I rented a small cabin out for one night. For the price it was fine. If you held a gun to my head and made me pick out something bad about the stay it'd be that I had to take the mattresses off the two bunk beds and put them UNDER that for the twin to get any degree of comfort, even that was poor. I didn't get more than 2 hrs sleep all night. PRO side: A very clean property, esp. the showers.

We have stayed at this KOA a handful of times and have a great time with each visit. I will say that during this stay I noticed that the playground needed a little attention: Some soap/water and some mulch. Also, the ant hills could use some attention. Great time though, we will be back!

My son asked to go to a KOA for his birthday and the RUSK KOA seemed just the answer. We enjoyed the pool, rented a few bikes, played on the play ground and enjoyed the quaintness of Rusk itself. The new owners are still getting a handle on the place, but everything is still top notch!
Sep 17, 2013
As always we had a wonderful weekend at koa rusk. this trip we brought our grandkids (5 & 10 yrs old) they loved it! Walter & Carol Preble were delightful as usual!

We had a great stay and enjoyed being there. Walter, when we report something broken, then we do not attack you, we are just giving you a fact, not an attack. Please do not use it as moment to tell us it is broken because of what someone else did. Just say thank you, we will look into it.

We had two cabins and a total of 4 adults and 6 children ages from 3--10. We all had a great time, and KOA was clean and everyone was very nice. Have stayed here before and will be back. Thanks KOA Rusk

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here! We travel with our Rat Terrier & he was just as welcome as we were. We enjoyed the upgrade to a nicer cabin than what we tho't we were coming into. Everything was clean & ready for our visit. We came in late & the owner was very cordial & welcomed us, sharing ideas for activities & good food in the area. We will surely stay here again-Thanks for the hospitality!

We absolutely loved the salt water pool and the cabin slept all 6 of us in comfort. Great weekend.

It was a wonderful experience. We loved the cabin, the pool, the hospitality, the surroundings. Everything. The owners are very sweet and great people. We will definitely be going again!
Jun 25, 2013
Excellent place to stay. If I'd received a map in an email so that I could find my way around the Kampground (since I was arriving late) would have made this perfect. I will continue to use the wonderful KOAs around America when traveling because it's so simple to do and quite fun as well. Thanks!
