Things to do in Oakdale
The Oakdale Cowboy Museum details the history of the area’s ranches and notable cowboys and cowgirls. Focusing on the kitsch as well as the cultural legacy, the museum is housed in the oldest home in Oakdale. The Oakdale Rodeo, an integral tradition in the region, has a history that goes back to the 40s and 50s. The event will take place in the second week of April, and will even have a celebratory parade. Dorada Park is a great spot to stop on your road trip to Yosemite through Oakdale. Let the kids run around and stretch their legs, have lunch, and enjoy the forts and greenery. The Woodward Reservoir is a great natural park, where you can look out onto the water and enjoy a hot California day. Go swimming, have a picnic, or even go camping!
Day trips from Oakdale
Yosemite is an hour and a half from Oakdale, making it the ideal place to visit from the area. Yosemite, in the Sierra Nevada mountains, has waterfalls that are absolutely out of this world. Yosemite Falls, Sentinel Falls, and Ribbon Falls are just some of the sights that you can admire. See great meadows from afar, and ancient giant sequoias up close. You can camp in Yosemite National Park for a real adventure, and explore all that it has to offer. Go hiking, fishing, horseback-riding and stargazing.
Tripping has a wide selection of rentals to choose from in the area, as it’s such a popular stop on trips to Yosemite. You can find lots of hotels and motels ready to ship you off to the National Park, or find something a little more long-term if you’re staying for the rodeo.
Transportation in Oakdale
As is typical in California, a car is useful when getting around the expansive state. If you’re travelling to Oakdale, driving up can leave you with the car for day trips. Oakdale doesn’t have much in the way of public transportation, and isn’t pedestrian friendly everywhere. Rent a car at the airport if you’re flying in!
