Our location - Texarkana, TX

Shady Pines RV Park


It was kind of sad leaving our location right on the Mississippi River. It was such lovely spot.  And so enjoyed watching the barge traffic plowing up and down the river.  However, the chill was beginning to set it, the winds could be fierce and it was just time, after three weeks, to keep moving south.

Texarkana TX Crossing the state of Arkansas, from northeast to southwest on our way to Texarkana, sort of reminded me of the state of Virginia.  Lots of trees, close to the road, and sporting lovely fall colors.  We always try to travel on sunny days (rain splashes onto Red Rover and Tige, UGH!) Saturday was mostly sunny, great for showing off the colors.
Texarkana TX Welcome to Texarkana, TX.  This is a fairly big town, 61,000 people.  There is also a Texarkana, AR.  The "town" is split right down the middle by State Line Hwy.

Texarkana TX Shady Pines RV Park is located on a country highway about 10 miles from town.
Texarkana TX This is a fairly new park, built in 2003 by the owners of Shady Pines RV Sales, a dealership located right next door.  Prior to '03 they found themselves sending service customers who may have had to stay, waiting for parts, to a local KOA.  And they looked at this acreage and thought, "Why don't we build a park?"  They did a wonderful job!  This clubhouse is bright, spacious with a fireplace, big screen TV and a kitchen.  Just a great place for an RV club rally, reunion, etc.

Texarkana TX It is billed in the campground directory as "big rig" friendly.  Wide streets and long pull-through sites.  That is what we need!  We would definitely come back here again. Texarkana TX

Texarkana TX To the rear of the park is a small fishing lake.  Not the Mississippi, but nice nonetheless, we like having any kind of water nearby. Texarkana TX

Texarkana TX Once again, lots of space for Red Rover and Tige.
Texarkana TX We included this second picture of Red Rover, just to show off his shiny exterior. We bought some wonderful cleaning stuff from our friend, Smokey Joe.  It cleans, shines and protects all in one step.  Works on Tige as well.
