Oakdale Park


The Original Family Campground, Oakdale opened in 1925 as a campground, motor court, built around the largest swimming pool in Texas at that time, the 330,000-gallon Oakdale Plunge. Oakdale is one of the only private RV parks in the country listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For almost 100 years, Oakdale has been home to many events, from family reunions, RV rallies, swimming parties, and music concerts. This is a pet-friendly location. We have 120 RV spaces with full hook-ups and WIFI, about 2 dozen cabins, a couple of bunkhouses, a couple of bathhouses, meeting rooms with kitchenettes, a convention center, an outdoor kitchen and pavilion, a new playground, a laundromat, an outdoor stage, picnic shelters, and a park store. We are located just across the street from the Paluxy River with its Big Rocks recreational area, a putt-putt golf course, a lighted river walk leading to a county park, and a dam with a small lake behind it.



The Opossum Branch Cabin just outside of Glen Rose has some of the most magnificent panoramic views in Somervell County, Texas which is at the top of the hill country. Come relax, slow down, breathe country air and absorb the beautiful country views. Watch the sunset from the covered porch, throw some burgers on the BBQ grill and have a cookout in your picnic area or whip up some juicy steaks for a romantic dinner. steve.lynch@gmx.com
