Lake Brownwood –
Civilian Conservation Corps
workers spent years building this
special park in the heart of Texas.
Today, their legacy endures. Stay
in a historic cabin, walk the scenic
trails, or play in or on the cool lake.
Lake Colorado City –
Need to get away from the
crowd? Head to the lake! Water
draws wildlife and humans here
for respite from the dry West Texas
climate. The park is south of I-20
between Midland and Abilene.
Monahans Sandhills –
Out west lies a mystical place
where the wind sculpts sand dunes
into peaks and valleys, sometimes
over¬night. Mon¬a¬hans Sandhills
State Park offers a Texas-sized
sand¬box for kids of all ages,
as well as a close-up view of a
unique desert environment.
