The Tin Can Tourists welcomes the Oakdale RV resort into the Vintage Trailer Campground program and plans to have a TCT Rally in 2021 to celebrate their 95 year anniversary! The owners Luci and Philip are TCT members.
This program allows select and member referred campgrounds to express their support of vintage trailers and motor coaches by joining TCT and listing their campground as a “Tin Can Tourists’ Friendly” facility.

Oakdale RV Resort & Motor Court is a throwback in history which makes it Texas’ original TCT friendly RV Park, as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Oakdale is the original family campground. Opened in 1925 as a campground, motor court and 330,000-gallon swimming pool, Oakdale has been home to many events, from family reunions, RV rallies and swimming parties, weekly free summer concert series, spontaneous music jams and free stage shows, bluegrass festivals, an annual dulcimer festival, woodcarving rally, and BBQ and chili cook-off.
120 RV spaces with full hook-ups and WIFI, 20 cabins, 2 bunkhouses, 2 bath houses, the Oakdale Casino, a 100 year old renovated dance hall and events center, outdoor kitchen and pavilion, a new playground “the Dino Playground”, a laundromat, an outdoor stage, picnic tables, picnic shelters and park store.
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.
Oakdale Park is close to several area attractions: Dinosaur Valley State Park, Fossil Rim, the Promise (a religious musical drama performed at the Texas Amphitheatre during September and October), Dinosaur World, the Creation Evidence Museum, Barnard’s Mill and Art Museum, and various Brazos River tubing and rafting opportunities. Several of Oakdale’s buildings as well as many others in Glen Rose were built with petrified wood. The abandoned, photogenic Ed Young Service Station (AKA Outlaw Service Station), located just a couple of miles from Oakdale, provides an especially stunning example of this type of architecture.
Whether you want to participate in one of our many events, visit local attractions, enjoy the Paluxy River, start a new tradition and make its home, or simply relax, we hope you will come and see what Oakdale has to offer.
We will definitely include Oakdale to our list of parks we want to visit next season! A neighbor of mine been there and they were very pleased with the experience.
