Cotulla / Nueces River KOA

Welcome to the Cotulla / Nueces River KOA!

Originally built by legendary brothers Paul and Bill Cotulla in 1975, this award winning KOA campground is alive with history and excitement. Texas Longhorns once sipped from the spring-fed gravel quarries on the North side of the ranch, which now offers excellent bass fishing along with the Nueces River to the South. Splash away in the crystal clear swimming pool with friends or spend an afternoon exploring the expansive 73 acre property. A variety of tent sites, deluxe cabins and plenty of pull-thrus offers something for all your camping needs. Plenty of choices for fun with a children's playground, tetherball, volleyball, horseshoes and movies in the clubhouse. Let Sparky run free with all his furry friends at the massive Kamp K-9! We have 24-hour laundry and showers. Whether you're in town for one day or one year, you're going to love this KOA!
