Rusk KOA Holiday:   Enjoy a ride on the Texas State Railroad's steam train through the scenic Piney Woods area, visit a drive-through safari park, or see the wineries, antique shops, restaurants, and more. Rusk KOA welcomes RV Rallies, reunions, and other groups year-round in the climate-controlled club room.


Texas State Railroad has something for the whole family: tradition, comfort, and adventure. The ride includes comfortable seating, food and beverage service, and historic narration on a rail journey that whisks you back into another century. The casual grace of train travel always stays in style. From the moment one steps aboard a vintage 1920s car, the excitement of being on the rails is exhilarating. Celebrated steam or vintage diesel locomotives are the muscle that pulls the consist of cars representing a bygone form of notable travel.

Breathe deep, enjoy a drink, and relax as you lose yourself on a round-trip, four-hour, 25-mile rail journey through the Piney Woods of East Texas, where history is just part of the journey.
