New Rv Resort In Pottsboro Opening

Lake Texoma RV ResortLake Texoma RV Resort announced today they are open for business!  A Grand Opening will be coming soon.  Owner and operators, Paul & Lisa Tyson, purchased the former trailer park, land and building, operated as Henderson Camp, which was built in the 1940’s.  Many visitors and residents enjoyed the bait and tackle shop and fishing guide services that had been provided by Maxine & Dudley Cravens.

A complete renovation of the area has taken place over the past 4 years.  Texoma RV Resort is a gated property, featuring 24-hour surveillance to all sites.  There are level concrete RV spaces measuring 20 x 80’ that are all American Disabilities Association (ADA) compliant.  The sites have water and sewer hook-ups with 20-30 and 50-amp service, high speed internet and Direct TV.  Visitors can also enjoy their own private picnic table and gas grill at their site.

There is a 3,000 square foot clubhouse, office, and small store.  Inside the clubhouse are commercial washers and dryers, ADA compliant restrooms and showers, a wood burning fireplace, high definition large screen TV tables and chairs for relaxing, games and activities.   A pool, playground and splash pad will be added this summer.  For renters, there is a “dog park” across from the RV Park.

Paul and Lisa, who are avid RV enthusiasts, opened this park with fisherman, weekenders and retirees in mind.  Paul said, “we wanted this to be a quiet, safe place for families and individuals to enjoy everything the area has to offer.”
