Providing a safe meeting place for the citizens of Henderson County & surrounding areas.
It Starts with a Vision...
A dedicated group of individuals had a dream to build a place that could serve the needs of a growing community of RV focused entreprenuers, as well as the bustling community of Athens, Texas and the surrounding areas.
In May of 2019, that dream was realized with the grand opening of the Big Red School House & Community Center.
Since opening, the facility has been dedicated to providing a safe place for people to gather, learn, and prosper and we've been overwhelmed by the support from Henderson County and the communities we serve.
In the Great State of Texas...
Nestled amongst the trees along Texas Highway 175W, The Big Red Schoolhouse & Community Center is located on the grounds of the Texan RV Park in Athens, Texas.
The park contains 89 RV sites, 6 cabins and a country cottage for rent, and 3 small lakes situated on 37 lush acres.
The Texan RV Park provides a clean, comfortable and convenient place for guests to relax and unwind.
