This is a KOA Holiday in a really nice area with all pull-thru sites with full hook ups. It was quite chilly while I was here with temperatures dipping down into the low 30s but I can imagine this is a popular spot during the summer. It’s quite expensive at about $49 a night. I did want to spend a couple days away from town though and they are charging “holiday” prices here. There are full size pine trees throughout and some pleasant walking areas.
The K9 Kamp dog park is in a completely shaded area which I’m sure is appreciated during the summer. There are also at least three walking trails on the perimeter of the campground and through the woods. I enjoyed walking through a wooded area behind the store and laundry building that has cabins, tent sites, and even a teepee. The paths were covered with pine needles and it was quite pleasant.
As I drove through the town of Rusk I did see a number of fast food restaurants. The Texas State Railroad Depot is in Rusk and takes you on a historic journey to Palestine, Texas. There were no departures during the week I was here but it looks like a fun attraction. Rusk is in a part of Texas known as the Piney Woods area.
