Awake in a wooded oasis on the banks of Elm Creek in the midst of the Texas Midwest, just south of the city of Abilene. Pecan, red oak, cottonwood and elm trees arch over the campground. A historic water tower and observation deck built by the CCC using rust-colored sandstone overlook the large swimming pool. Spot white-tailed deer and other wildlife as you hike along a wooded trail. You can fish, hike, bike, boat or picnic at the newest section of the park, Lake Abilene. A one-mile nature trail plus an ADA-compliant, 1/2-mile trail are also available in the main park area.
Address: 150 Park Road 32 Tuscola, TX 79562 To reach the park, travel 16 miles southwest of Abilene through Buffalo Gap on FM 89, and then continue on Park Road 32 to the park entrance.
