Very nice park run by city. Long level sites. Easy check in. Best value in town. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Quaint shopping downtown. Good golf course. State park. Nice river front across street

Second stay at the park. First time was during a quiet time of year, and park was practically empty. Last time park was pretty full.

Actually is an old city park with large swimming pool, a pavilion, cabins, etc. Is nice and quiet. Parking spots are level, compressed gravel, and work just fine. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Looked like there were a few full timers there, so mostly used for weekend & short stays. The parking spots were fairly close to each other, but not uncomfortable. There are some trees which is nice. There is also a nice big field next to the rv park that we use to exercise the dog. Electricity, sewer & water connections were good. We will return. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Glen Rose is a nice quiet town. Not really a great destination, but if you're traveling through, this would be a good place to stop. We go there to train & race mostly. If you have kids the pool would be nice as it is huge.

Could be a really nice park. However, please understand. This is a family campground! Do not expect peace and quiet. Kids running through yards even after "quiet" hours. Loud beer parties while kids run unsupervised. No one picks up their dog poop. Generators ran around the clock in the dry camping area! For the most part the staff was VERY accomodating, however, there are several who have attitudes and forget who affords them this "job". No cable and TV reception is sketchy because Glen Rose is down in a hole. Lots of work being done on the park, they are working to improve it. However, that equates to lots of noise even on the weekends, so no real break from that. They do have a nice fenced area for dogs, but one of the workers uses it for their personal dog pen, so good luck finding it empty. Utilities do work well, water pressure is high. Restrooms are very clean, but could use a little sprucing up. Not sure I would stay here again. There is just not much to choose from in the area. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice little square to walk around. Interesting museum with dinosaur relics.

Brookshires is handy, there is a hospital close by, nice river walk across from the park.

Stayed for 3 days over a weekend. It was a quiet time as there were mostly empty spots in the park. There was a very nice pool with a fountain that I am sure would be enjoyable for the kids, but it was a bit cold and no one swimming those days. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Glen Rose is a nice quiet town that we visit often to train for our cycling races. There are a couple nice shops downtown and the Texas dinosaur park, which I have not visited. We will return to this RV Park as we enjoyed the quiet location.

Very clean RV park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Even though the pool cost $3.00 for our grandson, it was free for us to sit and watch. Lifeguards on duty. We understand the city took this park over, and they have completely remodeled the cabins and have made this park really nice. Bathrooms and showers really clean. We would stay here again. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Travel Trailer.

Deferred maintenance everywhere....city took over recently and needs to do lots of updating. My husband said worst bathrooms he has ever been in. We were the only motor home and there were only 2 other trailers ....so only 3 customers in the park. It is now a city park with a huge pool, cabins and RV spaces. We stopped here for over night on to Weatherford tomorrow for FMCA rally. Did not try Wi-Fi, baths, cable or anything else. No library. Would not stay here again. The work campers and receptionists were very nice. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

Love this location across the street from Big Rock Park. You can access the jogging/walking trail from Big Rock Park which goes over the river for a scenic outing. Staff was very friendly. Swimming pool is huge. Evenings were very quiet on the grounds. Grounds were clean. Parking was level with plenty of room for our auto. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 days at Oakdale last month and had a great time. The restrooms and showers were very clean and staff was very friendly. We visited fossil rim and the state park while we were there so we ran short on time on our last day so we decided to stay a little longer. It was cheaper to pay for the full day instead of paying by the hour. We took our time to pack up and only paid $25.00. It was a quiet stay at the park. Our son had a great time walking around looking for crickets at night. They had a very large pool at the park, but it was closed due to the season. Family friendly park. Great location to town. Will definitely stay there again. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Tent Trailer.

Nice campground, not crowded, plenty of room, lots of shade and the largest pool I've ever seen (at an RV Park). Highly recommend and will stay here again! We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

This is a city owned park. They have added several new sites that are not on the map provided on the website. We camped in the new part. The site was very long: 36' coach, pickup truck and still a lot of room. The manager is very accommodating. She told me if I didn't like the site we were in, to just move anywhere we were comfortable. The reason people go to this park is the huge pool. It does cost more: $3 per person for an all day pass. There are pavilions that can be rented and a lot of cabins. This is a very family friendly park. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

This location still has lots of road and new site construction gong on so there is a lot of mud around. The pool is the main attraction here and there is a charge for using it. We stayed in a grass lot which was OK because it didn't rain. The hookups in the old section are a mess in that they are mostly at the wrong end of the site for a motorhome. We had to pull out and turnaround to get access to the sewer connection. The new sites had great hookups. Overall nice park for families that like huge swimming pools. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Motorhome.

This park is now run by the City of Glen Rose and is in dire need of upgrading. RV sites are grass and dirt and most are not very level. The restrooms/showers were in extreme disrepair and I would not use them. The park was about 1/4 full with mostly permanent residents. Many of the residents were occupying two sites, one for their RV and another for their vehicle. They have a very large swimming pool which I suppose is a big draw in the summer (it was not open yet). I believe this park is too expensive for what they have to offer. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park located near downtown Glen Rose, maybe a bit worn but very comfortable. It has grass covered sites and some sites have big trees for shade. There are some picnic tables. There are some tent sites.There are many cabins for rent. The place has lots of kids. There is a huge pool called the "Oakdale Plunge", which costs extra on weekends ($10 a day), but is free on some weekdays for campers. The park is across the street from the city's "Big Rocks Park", which was strewn with big boulders, along a little river to swim and wade in. It was just a short drive to restaurants and shopping. We camped at Oakdale Park in a Travel Trailer.
