The Texas State Railroad Campground is located in the beautiful East Texas town of Rusk, and is a great spot for a fun southern escape! We offer campsites with water only, water and electricity or full hookups with 50 amp service and sewer. The Grounds offer picnic tables, grills, fire rings, laundry facility and WiFi! There are separate showers and restrooms onsite, a water playground, nature trains and a campground office complete with sundries, firewood and ice for purchase. The 15-acre Cherokee Lake is where fishermen will find a variety fish including crappie, catfish, striped bass, sauger, walleye, smallmouth bass, bluegill and largemouth bass! Whether they are casting, spinning or flying fish, chances of getting a bite are good!

Onsite, travelers can look forward to shuffleboard games, basketball, historic sightseeing, tennis and volleyball. For the history buff, there's plenty of other historic sites, and there's also a number of green spaces of nature walks and scenic viewing. And of course, visitors can expect great local eateries and bars to enjoy. Hope to see you soon!

Oh the train was a hoot! My boys had the best time at this camp ground! Not only was there a train there was so many other great things to do as a family. Not only was there many activities to do there were many choices on how we wanted to camp. It was like a dream when we stopped here. Texas is a beautiful state and this campground really made an impact on my family. I mean shuffleboard and a train ride in the same day who wouldn’t want that? I know this is one place we definitely will be stopping by again. I would highly recommend this camp ground for any kind of family!
