Just south of the bustling metropolis of Dallas-Fort Worth, the charming city of Waxahachie in northern Texas welcomes adventurers to explore the wonders and delights of this unique town and the many natural wonders of northern Texas. Waxahachie is home to a variety of industries, architectural styles, and film history, making it a unique stop along any road trip or off the beaten path destination.
Founded in 1850, Waxahachie quickly became a prominent railroad stop and then, not too long after that, the (now former) home of one of Texas’s most prominent universities, Trinity University. As the city grew, word of this funny-named town spread, served as the namesake for a US Navy harbor tug, and became one of Texas’s hidden gems. Choosing to book an RV rental in Waxahachie will open up a world of unique opportunities to explore, especially if you manage to secure your booking in the spring or fall festival seasons.
When you search for an RV in Waxahachie, you open up a world of piney woods, endless lakes, and rolling plains. As you explore the natural wonders of northern Texas, you will begin to understand why people say that their heart is in Texas.
Once you’ve picked up your RV rental in Waxahachie, head about 30 minutes north to Cedar Hill State Park in nearby Cedar Hill. At Cedar Hill State Park, you’ll be able to enjoy the shores and waters of Joe Pool Lake, hike through some of Texas’ remaining prairie lands, and even take a self-guided tour of a 100-year old Texas farm. If you’re looking to capture some of that one-of-a-kind Texas charm, be sure to visit in late March or early April, when the famed Texas wildflowers are in full bloom throughout the prairie lands.
If you’re looking to escape a little farther into the Texas wilderness, travel an hour to the west to Cleburne State Park near Cleburne. Just on the border of the Texas Hill Country, Cleburne State Park is the perfect place to do a little bit of moderate hiking. If you didn’t get enough lake time in Cedar Hill, you can enjoy the spring-fed lake of Cleburne by canoeing or kayaking across the sapphire waters. When you rent an RV in Waxahachie, Cleburne is just a short drive away and fully worth the distance.
If you’re willing to explore a little bit more of the wide-open roads of Texas, head two and a half hours south of Waxahachie to Sam Houston National Forest. Named after the Founding Father of Texas and the first President of Texas, Sam Houston National Forest is one of just a few national forests in all of Texas. Spanning three counties, you can challenge yourself with a multi-day hike along the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail, or just enjoy a day hike through the pine forest.
There are several places to park the motorhome rental near Waxahachie. If you’re looking for some of that lakeside living, consider the low-key High View Park. Sites have hookups and there are bathroom and shower facilities on site. Here you can enjoy Bardwell Lake, which is rumored to be one of the best fishing lakes in northern Texas.
If you’re looking for something with additional amenities, RV Ranch Motel & Campground in Keene may be a good option. RV sites have full hookups, and there are bathroom and shower blocks and laundry facilities. The park also has an on-site library and there’s also a swimming pool for guests to use.

After days of hiking and sunning by the lake, you may want to take a break indoors. Waxahachie is home to the Webb Gallery. In downtown Waxahachie, the constantly changing museum and gallery offers visitors a wide expression of various visual art mediums, such as painting, sketches, pottery and sculpture, and fabric work. You can see local artists’ projects displayed as well as international artists. No matter your artistic interest, you’re sure to find something at the Webb that is sure to inspire you.
Waxahachie gained a little bit of recognition in the ‘80s and ‘90s as a prime filming spot for movies and television, including several scenes and episodes for Walker, Texas Ranger, and many studios and directors have used the city in their works.
When visiting Texas, be sure to treat yourself to some famous, dry-rub barbeque. Remember, there’s no sauce in Texas barbeque, all the flavor and moisture is perfectly contained in the meat that’s been smoking for hours. If you want to try something that just screams Texas, go for a plate of brisket with some fried okra, potato salad, a generous slice of pecan pie, and an ice-cold soda.
