Burkburnett/Wichita Falls KOA Journey, Burkburnett, TX

This KOA journey was convenient and on the way to Lawton, Oklahoma from Wichita Falls, Texas. The road and sites were gravel but there were grassy patches with picnic tables at every site, making it less dreary than some travelers RV Parks. There appeared to be a handful of full timers around the perimeters but a number of overnighters pulled in after me. The park map on the front of the brochure that they give you on check in was a little deceiving because it doesn’t show the last row. I couldn’t find my spot and had to circle around and ask. However, the staff is very helpful and will come out and show you.

There is a fairly large store, rental cabins, several grassy picnic areas, a pool, and playground. There is also a small fenced dog park but it was rather muddy and we didn’t stay too long. The check in person was friendly and even came by later the same day to ask how things were.

It wasn’t very quiet in the evening with the roar of the vehicles on the nearby highway and cars coming and going in the RV park but I didn’t have any trouble falling asleep and slept through the night. It was a Friday night and this might not be normal traffic patterns.

I don’t normally use campground showers and so don’t report on those but this time I had to. My fresh water pump sprung a leak and it won’t be getting repaired until the week after my trip. The shower rooms open with a secret code, which is provided when you check in. The women’s bathhouse was large and clean and featured electric heat as well. My only complaint would be that the area to place your clothes and dry towel was too close to the shower water that seemed to spray everywhere so I had trouble keeping things dry.

If you are passing through and need an easy overnight stop, I would recommend this KOA.
