Texas National Picnic

The Fifth Annual Texas National Picnic will be held the weekend of May 19th at the Texas State Railroad RV Park & Campground, Rusk. The picnic will be held at noon on Saturday. Meet up at the Dining Hall on Saturday. 
Camping is $5/person/day, RSVP to detbmw @ gmail.com
From 2013 through 2016 the Texas National Picnic was held at Loves Lookout in Jacksonville Texas. For 2018 we are holding a three-day campout at Rusk State Park, with the picnic still being held on the third Saturday in May.  Hope to see you there!


The premise is simple.  Show up with what you want to eat and drink and we will provide charcoal for the grill.  We fire the grill up about noon and cook and visit until we get tired.   We have a drawing for door prizes for attendees and sit around and talk bikes and riding.


There are motels and camping sites relativley close and camping at Rusk State Park.  All riders are welcome.


In 2016 we had 104 attendees from 51 different communities, towns, and cities in Texas & Louisiana; they are listed at the bottom of the page. Our first year we had 24 attendees, the second year we had about 75, and the third year we had about 55 (we were in between days of thunderstorms). Pictures are on our photo gallery page here.
