Promising reviews “This is by far the best campground we have ever stayed in. KOA pulled out all the stops with all the amenities! Covered wagons, cabins, pull thru RV sites. We will be back for first Monday! We stayed in the Hen House; it was a cute 1×1 with a nice front porch. It is also a wedding venue with an amazing barn, patio and tons of photo ops.  – Missy D.

We just checked in last night & before we were finished hooking up we went to the office to extend our stay another 2 days. Beautiful & quiet location with amazing views. The people working at the campground were all so friendly. There is so much to do here. We are looking forward to renting the water bikes & also playing pickle ball, which we’ve heard of but never played. We’ve stayed at many KOA’s across the country, but this location is our absolute favorite! We will absolutely be back! – The M’s 2019

Promising Review “Outstanding location! One of the nicest KOAs we have seen yet (we have traveled almost all 48 continental states). The staff is very polite, the grounds are BEAUTIFUL and maintained by an excellent staff. My wife and I stayed for a whole month in our RV and never experienced a single issue. The grounds are quiet all hours of the day and night. The restroom/shower and laundry facilities are spotlessly clean and checked regularly. The fenced dog park is very cute and more than enough room for even our large German Shepherd to play. The WiFi is strong enough to handle whatever you need. If you are traveling through Abilene and need a place to camp, I strongly encourage you to stop by and stay!” – Denni

Promising Review ” We visited Jasper and Sam Rayburn Lake for our first time and was so delighted to stumble upon Koa Brookeland Lake SamRayburn. What a hidden gem!! My family and I stayed for 2 days and very enjoyed being here. The atmosphere is very inviting and relaxing. Tony was the most gracious host and was there to answer any questions. Tony and his wife are one of the most down to earth people I’ve ever met. He showed us three cabins to decide on which one we wanted. The cabin honestly was the best lodging experience we’ve ever had. I would absolutely recommend the Koa campsite to anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay. It will definitely be my go to lodging in the Sam Rayburn Lake area” – Esmeralda Garcia
