RV Parks in Texarkana

RV Parks in Texarkana
Texarkana is a city split down the middle by the Texas and Arkansas border, and it is also not far from Oklahoma and Louisiana as well. For a nature-loving RV camper, the city's RV parks offer access to outdoor attractions in all four states. Nearby is Oklahoma's Ouachita National Forest, Arkansas's Millwood Lake, and the Wright-Patnam Lake in Texas. Finally, the Red River runs through all four states and bends like an "L" right around the city. On both sides of the state line, Texarkana offers a number of public and private RV parks for a camper to set up her rig and pursue hiking, biking, fishing, boating or a number of other outdoor activities.

Texarkana KOA

The Texarkana KOA is situated where U.S. 59/71 intersects with I-30, making it a convenient stop for even the largest of RVs. Like most KOAs, the property offers a mixture of RV and tent campsites, as well as rental "kamping kabins." There are 42 paved RV sites with full hookups, and the camping facilities include showers, coin laundry, RV wash station and camp store. It also has a swimming pool, playground, pet area and private fishing pond. Outside the KOA, there are a number of restaurants in the immediate area, such as Zapata Grill and Mexican Cantina and Big Jake's Bar-B-Q. This RV park's is only three miles from the Red River and roughly 12 miles to Millwood Lake.

Four States Fair Grounds RV Park

Part of a fair grounds complex on the Arkansas side of Texarkana, the Four States Fair Grounds RV Park is organized parking-lot style, with 82 open, paved RV sites. However, there is some shade, as the lanes of sites are bordered by woodlots. All of the sites have full hookups. The RV park is less than 1/4 mile from I-30, as well as the Texas 151 Loop that serves as Texarkana's ring road. That combination gives it convenient access to the Red River and a plethora of adjacent small lakes along a broad arc to the east and southeast of town.
