Historic Oakdale Ranch

17785 County Road 86A (at Highway 16) Esparto (530) 787-4744 www.historicoakdaleranch.com The Historic Oakdale Ranch is home to the second oldest working ranch in Yolo County to be owned and operated continuously by the same family. The 400 acre ranch is located on the outskirts of Esparto, California, at the gateway to the beautiful Capay Valley. The Stephens Family has owned and operated Oakdale Ranch since 1852, and is now home to the 4th, 5th and 6th generation of Stephens’. Our event area is perfect for parties of up to 300 people and has convenient parking. The venue area includes a half-acre of lawns adjacent to a two-acre pond. This is a great location for an intimate wedding, family reunion, or company picnic. Walnut orchards and hedges of native grass insulate the event area grounds from Highway 16. Vistas of the rolling Capay Hills are visible in the distance. The lawn areas, a custom built gazebo, a barbecue patio, water, power, portable restroom facilities, and a fire pit for evening events are included in the rental. While the area is available from March to October, spring and fall events are especially popular due to the moderate Yolo County climate.
