Cleburne State Park RV & Campground Guide


You might think you have to travel to a tropical setting to find waterfalls and fields of colorful wildflowers, but you can find just that at Cleburne State Park, which is located about 70 miles southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, metroplex. Since part of the drive to reach it requires traveling on state and U.S. highways, it takes about an hour and a half to reach, making it an ideal weekend getaway for those in the metro area. After a day at the lake, enjoy an evening at the theater with the Cleburne Plaza Theatre Company or a pro baseball game or visit the Gone with the Wind Remembered Museum that homages both the Margaret Mitchell book and the film based upon it.
