Located at the crossroads of Texas history, Abilene State Park is surrounded by low limestone hills in a rugged area used first by the Tonkawa and Comanches to hunt buffalo and later by Texas cowboys leading cattle drives on the Goodnight-Loving Trail. On your way to the park, a stop at the restored Buffalo Gap Historic Village takes you back in time to an era when tent camping was not recreation but a requirement for traveling across the vastness of West Texas, including a stop on the legendary Butterfield stage route.
