Fun Facts

If you haven’t been to Rusk KOA before, here are some fun facts to wet your appetite:

  • The campground is relatively small, which makes it easy to walk around the entire campground to visit with people.
  • The campground has plenty of trees, especially in the tent camping area, which means plenty of shade.
  • There is a nice saltwater pool and kids’ playground right in the middle of the campground where everyone can easily get to it.
  • KOA has their own set of activities to keep the young ones busy (in addition to the swimming pool and playground):
    • Yellow Pine Cone Hunt
      (There are yellow pine cones hidden around the campground. Find one, take it to the office, and get a free Ice Pop!)
    • Basket Ball
    • Frisbee Golf
    • Bean Bag Baseball
    • Tether Ball
    • Hiking Trails
    • Bicycle Rentals

Pool Rules

To keep the pool safe for everyone, there are some basic rules to pay attention to:

  • Kids under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. The adult does not have to be the kid’s parent. So it’s OK if parents take turns to watch over a few kids.
  • No glass or food in the pool or pool area. Cans or other unbreakable containers are fine.

There are some other rules as well, but those two issues are the two big ones to observe.
