Abilene State Park

The swimming pool is closed through 2014, and due to drought, water activities are not currently available at Lake Abilene.  


Abilene is in a semi-arid region of short prairie grass, brushland and wooded stream valleys of mesquite, juniper, cedar, native pecan, elm, live oaks, hackberry, Texas red oak, redbud and various other plants and wildflowers.

Perfect for wildlife observation and photography, the park is home to white-tailed deer, raccoons, armadillos, foxes, squirrels, cottontail rabbits, and a large variety of birds, including the Mississippi kite, roadrunner, cardinal, hummingbird and mockingbird, along with many others. Popular fish include bass, crappie, catfish and perch.
