ACTIVITIES

Enjoy fishing, boating, hunting, and swimming,
plus golf, tennis, ATV riding, horseback riding and more!

North-Central West Texas is an incredible place to enjoy the outdoors! Visit us at Buck Creek RV Park in Abilene for excellent outdoor adventures like fishing and paddle boating in our nearby lakes, hunting in our wide-open grasslands, or horseback riding on trails that cross our scenic terrain. Go bird-watching for hummingbirds, ospreys, and blackbirds or head into Abilene for arcade games, antique shopping, bowling, and mini golf.

You can play 18 holes of golf at the Maxwell Golf Course or DiamondBack Golf Club, then enjoy a game of doubles on one of the fifteen lighted tennis courts at the Rose Park Tennis Center. You can plan a day of ATV riding or bike riding, taking in scenic views and watching for wildlife. The Abilene area has lakes for water skiing, billiard halls, bowling alleys, and playgrounds for the little ones, plus go karts and dirt racing tracks for race fans.

Our area is home to a number of colleges and universities, all with lovely campuses. Take a tour of Abilene Christian University, admiring the architecture, then head to Hardin-Simmons University or McMurry University. Follow that up with a visit to Cisco Junior College and Texas Tech University at Abilene for a fun taste of the collegiate life.

Fans of the theater will adore the Fort Griffin Fandangle, a satire of life at this famous fort. You can catch some thrills at the Taylor County Expo Center, home to the West Texas Fair & Rodeo and Western Heritage Classic, or with a visit to see the World's Largest Rattlesnake Round-Up in nearby Sweetwater. And if you visit Buck Creek RV Park in late September and early October, be sure to catch the stunning color of the Big Country Balloon Festival, held right here in Abilene.
