Stay at Oakwood RV Park as a destination vacation. A prime place to visit while you are here is historic Fredericksburg, Texas, just 69 miles from San Antonio in The Texas Hill Country which was named Number 8 on the Lonely Planet’s “Best in the US” list for 2017.
Founded by Germans fleeing the social, political and economic conditions existing at the time in Germany, Fredericksburg in 1846, the European settlers named the town after Prince Frederick of Prussia. While initially refusing to learn English, the first generations of German settlers spoke Texas German, a dialect the town is still noted for.
With 150 eclectic shops, a vibrant arts community, outdoor fun, carriage rides, diverse restaurants and events galore, including an area-renowned Oktoberfest, Fredericksburg delivers for everyone!
