Campground

Campground was on State Highway 294 twelve miles southwest of Rusk in southern Cherokee County. It was first settled around the time of the Civil War and grew up around an early church of the same name. In the mid-1930s the small community had a church and a number of houses. After World War II many residents left the area, but in the early 1980s a church, a store, a cemetery, and a few scattered houses still remained. The community was no longer shown on county highway maps in 2000.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
