Big Spring State Park + Scenic Overlook

Big Spring State Park is a small park with a big scenic overlook of the town of Big Spring, Texas. There is no fee to enter the park.

This park sits on the top of a small mountain in the middle of the town of Big Spring. If you need food or supplies there are grocery stores in the nearby town of Big Spring. Once you enter the park there are various hiking and biking trails. There are picnic areas and restrooms. 

Perhaps the main attraction of this park is the scenic overlook of the town and the surrounding valley. There is a indoor/outdoor building structure that may be reserved for events. Next to the building structure is a playground. Many of the playground structures looked kind of old.

From what I could gather there are plans to renovate the park. There was also a sign that there was no overnight camping at the park. There were spaces that looked like campsites, but overnight camping was not allowed. Much of the infrastructure appeared old and in need of renovation. Hopefully the park will be renovated and open for camping in the future.

Go for the view, but go somewhere else for camping. To the east of Big Springs there are parks with camping at Lake Colorado City State Park and still further east there is Abilene State Park.
