Welcome to Shady Oaks Riverside RV Retreat!

One of Texas' Best Kept Secrets!

Thirty years ago, God blessed our family with the stewardship of this place we now call Shady Oaks, an RV retreat located in the Highland Lakes area of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. For this blessing, our desire is to honor Him and His will for this park and our lives. Our goal has been to make Shady Oaks a place where one can experience a little piece of heaven in this sometimes hectic world. As a family, we are committed to providing a wholesome, friendly, family atmosphere that has kept RVers coming back year after year.

Wildlife at Shady Oaks RV
Fishing off the dock at Shady Oaks RV

The main focus at Shady Oaks is on fellowship, fishing and the enjoyment of wildlife, nature, peace, and quiet. For the angler, Shady Oaks is a fisherman's dream - catfish, crappie, white, black, & striper bass provide unique fishing experiences for all ages. It is also a great place to swim, kayak, canoe, or just relax by the riverside. In addition, we are within ten minutes of three of the best fishing and water sports lakes in the Highland Lakes chain: Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, and Lake LBJ.

Kayaking at Shady Oaks RV

Shady Oaks is a gated, secluded country RV retreat located on 23 acres, with 1700 feet of water frontage, just below Inks Dam on the Colorado River. Some of the largest and most beautiful live oak and pecan trees in the Central Texas area, as well as many types of wildflowers, cacti, and shrubs, provide a sanctuary for the abundant wildlife. White-tail deer roam freely through the park and birdwatchers will find a wide assortment of species to view.
