Discover Big Lake, TX


Between the cities of San Antonio and El Paso in the vast expanses of West Texas, Big Lake is a small gem of a town that not many outsiders know about. Interestingly enough, there is no lake anywhere close to Big Lake, as it was named for a dry lake bed south of town. Big Lake started as a small ranching community in the late 19th century, thanks to the Kansas City, Mexico, and Orient Railroad which passed through town starting in 1912.

Since 1912, Big Lake has not changed a whole lot, but this is far from a bad thing. It has retained its small-town culture and is far removed from the state’s larger cities and urban sprawl. When you book an RV in Big Lake, West Texas is your playground, with ample space to explore and incredible desert landscapes to see. Although it is not located on a major interstate highway, Big Lake has its own airport and several smaller routes for driving in and out of town.

The Great Outdoors

There are lots of desert areas around Big Lake, and they have their own unique beauty that you must see in person to truly appreciate. If you head towards San Angelo to the east, San Angelo State Park will provide you with an awesome chance to put your Big Lake campervan rental to good use. Some of the most interesting features of this park are the scattered archeological sites left behind by ancient native people, dating back over 18,000 years. In addition to the historical features of the park, there are cozy cabins, boat ramps, 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, equestrian trails, and campsites where you can stay in the comfort of your Big Lake motorhome rental.

Lake Colorado City State Park is another park with a lake that you can find by driving north. This fantastic camping destination has a bevy of spacious campsites that you can make use of when you rent an RV, especially if you like camping by the lake. There are air-conditioned rental cabins for those without RVs, and lots of great swimming areas with sandy beaches by the water.

One of the best national parks in the country is located in West Texas, but it takes a few hours of driving from Big Lake to reach it. Big Bend National Park is one of the least visited national parks in the country due to its remote location on the Mexican border. This park will surely be the highlight of your trip, with mesmerizing views from towering cliffs overlooking the mighty Rio Grande River. In addition to thousands of species of plants and wildlife, you can see ancient native settlements, dinosaur footprints, and well-preserved fossils in this amazing park.

RV Park

While the camping selections are limited near Big Lake, there are a few places where you can spend the night when you rent an RV in town. Black Gold RV & Rental is quite basic but more than accommodating to visitors. The campsites are spacious, and the atmosphere is pleasant and peaceful.

Hilltop RV Park has large, pull-through sites in a tranquil desert setting. There are showers and restrooms, a TV lounge, a dog park, and a refreshing in-ground pool.

You can also park the Big Lake RV rental at San Angelo State Park, with fantastic lakefront beaches, hiking trails, swimming areas, and plenty of other reasons to call it your temporary home.

City Attractions

Big Lake is quite small and therefore doesn‘t have a lot of attractions within its city limits. It serves as a jumping off point for exploring the area, and there are larger cities nearby that have a lot to see. Midland and Odessa are both north of town and easy to reach, with some unique attractions to check out. Midland has some stellar museums, like the Petroleum Museum, where guests can learn about the vital role of petroleum in human history, and the hundreds of millions of years it took for organic matter to transform into petroleum. The museum pays tribute to the first drillers and oil industry workers and features lots of cool machines, supercars, aircraft, and other petroleum-powered vehicles on display.

In Midland, you can also visit the home of not one but two US presidents. The George W. Bush Childhood Home is a small house in Midland where the 43rd president grew up, owned by his parents, Barbara and 41st President George H.W. Bush.

The Museum of the Southwest is housed in the old Turner Mansion, a historical landmark in its own right. The museum is equal parts planetarium, art museum, and children’s museum. There is lots to learn in this eclectic space full of treasures, and informative tours to guide you on a learning journey.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

How much are average RV rentals?

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
