Haskell is in the northwest of Texas, directly north from Abilene and a short drive west from Fort Worth. The city is in an area of prairie and grassland, so typical of West Texas, with long straight roads and vast open spaces.
About an hour north of Haskell is Copper Breaks State Park, an area that offers a range of recreational activities, from swimming and fishing to hiking and biking. In the center of the park is the large Large Lake Copper Breaks, which has a designated swimming area, although no lifeguards are on duty. The 60-acre lake is also well-stocked with various species of fish, plus there are a fishing pier and cleaning station. Boating is allowed on the lake, but jet skis are banned, and there's a no-wake rule in place, so it's an excellent place for relaxing in peace with a fishing rod.
Several well-marked hiking trails allow you to explore the park easily. At 3.8 miles, the Equestrian Trail is the longest, and despite its name, it is also open to hiking and biking. The trail takes you past a variety of habitat, including woodland, prairie, and wetlands, giving you the chance to spot some of the diverse wildlife and wildflowers in the park. The Commanche tribe often used this area, and in the visitor center, you can find information on their movements and favored camping places.
Just a few miles south is the Abilene State Park, on the shores of Lake Abilene. The large lake offers a place to cool off during the hot summer months with a dedicated swimming area, and there is also a historic swimming pool, built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. With a no-wake speed limit, the lake is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Hiking is very popular here, and while out on the trails, you can try your hand at geocaching. Most of the trails are short, but the Abilene Dam Road trail is a 3.5-mile loop trail circling almost the entire lake. If you are lucky, you may see roadrunners or white-tailed deer along the way, but there are plenty of waterfowl on the lake, and sometimes beavers can be seen.
Haskell is a small city but has everything you will need while camping with an RV. There's a good range of shopping, plus plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from when you don't want to cook in your rental RV.
A short drive southeast of the campground brings you to Fort Griffin State Historic Site. The fort formed part of the western defensive line between 1867 and 1881, and the ruins are open to the public. Several of the old buildings can still be seen, including the mess hall, barracks, bakery, and powder magazine. Sometimes, re-enactments and events are held at the fort, and it is also home to the official State of Texas Longhorn Herd. The herd is around 250 strong and is important because of the connection between them and Texas. When you think of the Old West, ranchers, and cattlemen, it's the Texan Longhorn that always comes to mind. Fort Griffin is also popular with stargazers, simply because of the lack of light pollution. Vast ranches surround it, and very few people, making it a perfect location to spot the stars.
Every year over the last two weekends of June, the city of Albany holds the Fort Griffin Fandangle. Over 250 performers bring the Old West to life, with dancing, singing, and music, in a show that takes you back to the rowdy frontier towns of yesteryear. When you want to see how Texan's lived in the 1800s, this is the show for you.
Book an RV in Haskell County to truly experience the Old West and see how the ranchers used to live in days gone by.
