4 Ways to Camp at Canton KOA | Silver Spur Resort

Posted: July 14, 2023 by Silver Spur Master

Let’s face it – camping is great for the soul. There is nothing better than getting out into the fresh air, away from the hustle of the daily grind. We don’t get enough time to reconnect with nature, our thoughts, or even our families – and camping is a great way to check all of those boxes.

For our friends out there in the DFW metroplex, there are several options that will provide you with a great camping experience, but we want to talk today about one that will absolutely knock your socks off!

After you finish this article, you will have found your camping home away from home, guaranteed!

What’s the Big Deal about Canton?

Canton is one of the well-known local gems tucked away southeast of Dallas. And while you may have heard it name-dropped around town, you may not know what all the hubbub is about. So we’re going to let you in on a little secret about why Canton is adored across the metroplex and beyond. 

Canton has the small-town charm that the big cities and suburban sprawls lack. Down in Canton, you can guarantee that we’ll treat you like a neighbor with a solid handshake and a genuine “We’re glad you’re here”.

Canton is also famous for hosting the First Monday Trade Days, one of the largest flea markets in the United States! It takes place on the weekend prior to the first Monday of every month, attracting thousands of vendors and visitors. If you enjoy shopping for antiques, crafts, and collectibles, you might think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Check out our favorite tips for navigating First Monday Trade Days, a perfect guide for first-timers!

Canton showcases the natural beauty of the Lone Star State, capturing the scenic landscape of the picturesque Texas countryside. At the Silver Spur Resort, we are surrounded by acres of meadows, trees, and farmland, providing the perfect location to stop and stay a while, and we hope you do just that!

From Tents and Cabins and Everything in Between

If you’re a routine camper, you might already be familiar with the multiple approaches to camping. But if you’re new to the camping scene, you may not know just how many options you have and how comfortable it can be.

Pitch a Tent at the KOA

For all you old-fashioned campers out there, we see you! There is something charming about throwing down a tent and sleeping in a sleeping bag with a perfect view of the starry Texas sky. Located inside the Silver Spur Resort, the Canton KOA is the perfect option for you! 

Our tent sites give you a nice even sand pad for your tent base, ensuring you sleep on a flat surface and not bumpy, uneven ground. With water and electric connections and your own private fire ring, you can host up to six people at your campsite. Enjoy a round of s’mores after sunset around a crackling fire with the company of your favorite people. Don’t forget to bring your four-legged friends as well – pets are always welcome at the Canton KOA.

Park your RV by the Pond

RVs are beautiful things that provide all the comforts of home on wheels for your convenience. If you’re looking for your next place to park your RV, look no further than the Canton KOA, located inside the Silver Spur Resort 

Our standard RV sites have full hookups, including water, electricity, dual septic, and even Wi-Fi! With a level paved concrete pad, your RV Pull Thru campsite will also have a family picnic table and a spacious grassy area, perfect for playing your favorite yard games, and plenty of room for slide-outs on either side of your RV. Upgrade to a deluxe site to graduate to a larger patio with accompanying patio furniture and a fire pit! 

Here’s a hot tip for you – if you think our standard and deluxe sites are awesome (which they are), wait until you see what our Premium sites are like! These sites come with all accommodations of the deluxe sites and are located near our very popular fishing pond, giving you some gorgeous water views. 

The premium sites take the cake every time, hook, line, and sinker!

Glamp it Up!

Camping is often associated with “roughing it” or more primitive camping, like backpacking. But the truth is, you can camp with AC, friends! That’s right, good old air conditioning. And in these Texas summers, that is the way to go!

Allow us to introduce you to the fun spin that the Silver Spur Resort has thrown on glamping. With options of Covered Conestoga Wagons, Tiny Homes, and a whimsical Treehouse, you can push the boundaries of your imagination while you break away from the monotony of the real world. 

Visit our website to take a virtual tour of all the glamping options available to you. Each glamping option provides a private bathhouse to your area or a built-in bathroom, depending on the accommodation type. All glamping options are climate controlled, offering you the perfect camping experience year-round.

Cabin Fever

If you’re looking for something more rustic, but equally as comfortable as home, look no further than our cabin and ranch house options!

To help keep you unplugged and maximize your relaxation, most of our cabins do not have televisions but offer all the typical modern amenities of home. Located in close proximity to the activities of the resort, you will have access to basketball, horseshoes, and other outdoor games, as well as the community pool! If you’re more of a homebody, enjoy the front-porch-sittin’ appeal of your cabin while you enjoy the quiet hours of the morning with a lovely cup of coffee and a book. 

If you’re looking for the perfect environment to host a large group, Durham’s Roost Ranch House is the place for you! With the ability to sleep 10 or more, this Ranch House provides the space for a large group to socialize, but the privacy that you might desire during the quiet hours of the day.
