This is the far east of Texas, deep in the Lakes Region and on the border with the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. The area has the nickname, Ark-La-Tex, and just to the north is the city of Texarkana, whose name is also derived from three of the names of the states. Located at the southeastern end of Lake O' the Pines, and close to the dam, Buckhorn Creek Park RV campground is in a beautiful spot with wonderful views over the lake.
RV camping at Buckhorn Creek Park gives you the comforts of home, while at the same time waking up each morning to the birds singing and being surrounded by trees. Each of the 57 RV camping sites has water and electrical hook-ups, a picnic table and a fire ring, so perfect for a little al-fresco dining.
Modern restrooms, with hot showers, are available in each section of the park, plus there is a playground for the kids and a boat ramp for getting out on the water.
To the east is Jefferson, a small town with most things you'll need, while slightly further to the south is Marshall, a larger city with plenty of facilities. Both towns are full of history to explore when you book an RV in Marion County.
Buckhorn Creek Park RV campground is in a beautiful area of East Texas, surrounded by woodland and lakes. Lake O' the Pines, in particular, covers over 18,000 acres and is surrounded by 9,000 acres of protected land. Buckhorn Creek Park is just one of many recreation areas around the shore of the lake. From here, you can enjoy fishing, swimming, water sports, boating, and hiking, among other activities.
Around the shoreline of the lake, you can follow the well-marked Texas Wildflower Trails, while a little further afield to the west is the Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area Loop. This 10-mile loop is open to hiking, and off-road vehicles and offers some beautiful scenic views. Several other hiking trails start at the same trailhead.
Lake O' the Pines is an excellent location for fishing, with miles of quiet shoreline, several marinas, and numerous public boat launches. Bait, tackle, and other fishing gear, are available to buy and rent in many locations, along with boat rental if you prefer fishing on the lake. Anglers will find a well-stocked lake, with largemouth bass, channel catfish and crappie in abundance, and good stocks of other species.
With such a vast expanse of water, boating is also popular on the lake, and with plenty of space, it's an excellent area for sailboats.
Nearby Jefferson and Marshall can provide all your daily shopping requirements, and the towns are also worth visiting for their histories.
While in Jefferson, take some time off and enjoy a relaxing, low-speed trip on the Jefferson Historic Railway. The 40-minute journey takes you along the Big Cypress Bayou, through woods and wetlands. Don't miss the stop at the Diamond Don Gator Pit, where you can watch the alligators being fed. Just remember to keep your arms and legs in the train carriage, though!
You can also explore Jefferson on foot by following the Port Jefferson History and Nature Center Trails. At just over a mile long, this easy trail is accessible to all and follows part of the Big Cypress Bayou. All along the route are information boards about the area and its wildlife.

After dancing your way around the town to the Boogie Woogie beat, slow down for a while and take in the culture at the Michelson Museum of Art.
