Big Spring is at the "crossroads of West Texas," so when you want to travel to nearby cities like Midland and Lubbock, camping with an RV at Whip In RV Park puts you with easy reach of these destinations. Roll in with your big rig, and you'll find full hookup sites connected to 50/30 amp service, cable TV, and wireless internet.
With your comfort in mind, the campground provides bathrooms and showers so you can freshen up after a day filled with adventure. Laundry facilities also mean you can pack light. However, with lots of activities in and around town, you may need more than a few changes of clothes. And what's motorhome camping if you can't enjoy your meals outside? At Whip In RV Park, you certainly can with picnic tables available for your al fresco dining pleasure. As for your furry friends, bring them along and let them run free in the enclosed dog park.
Big Spring was so named because it was the only watering hole for herds of wild horses, antelope, and bison within a 60-mile radius. Today, Big Spring remains a hub for travelers coming and going through Howard County on their way to other western Texas attractions. Take advantage of the city's location and take your motorhome rental out on the open Texas road.
If hiking and biking are high on your to-do list, you don't even need to leave town to feel the breeze on your face. The Comanche Trail Park, home of the spring which gave the town its name, beckons with green scenery and 400-acre playground. Anglers will find Comanche Trail Lake to be a productive fishing spot for trout. Unique to this park is a 6,900-seat limestone amphitheater where some of the city's glittering events, like the Festival of Lights, take place.
Kayaking, swimming, and fishing are also popular outdoor recreation at Lake Colorado City State Park, about 30 minutes' drive from the campsites at Whip In RV Park. Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, and sunfish is often rewarded with a plump catch, and launching a boat or kayak from the ramps is possible. From the lakeside, hiking trails, which provide views of the water and an occasional encounter with wildlife, beg to be explored.
Rent a camper near Whip In RV Park, and do as the Comanche Indians did at Abilene State Park. Sit under the shade of native pecan trees, which you can do in the park's picnic area. The Buffalo Wallow Pond and Lake Abilene offer plentiful fishing opportunities, but if you want to kayak or swim, the lake is a better option. Birders might want to scope out short prairie grass and brush to catch sight of Northern cardinals, Mississippi kites, and roadrunners.
If you're a rodeo fan, book a campsite at Whip In RV Park and plan your trip around Big Spring's rodeo events in April and June when the Howard College Rodeo and the Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo kick off, respectively. Naturally, when you want to see bronco and bull riding at their best in this corner of West Texas, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association or PRCA-sanctioned Cowboy Rodeo is the more exciting event.
The month of March brings a different crowd to Big Spring when the Annual Gem, Mineral, and Jewelry Show dazzles onlookers with demonstrations, displays, and silent auctions. And it would also be worth marking your calendar around this time if the Big Spring Pow Wow takes place in town.
Outside of these months, the town treats Big Spring campers to its handful of attractions like the Heritage Museum, Potton House, and the Hangar 25 Air Museum, among others. Visit the Heritage Museum and browse its extensive exhibits featuring phonographs, medical equipment, and the Texas and Pacific Railroad memorabilia. The Potton House was built at the turn of the century and is worth a peek as it represents the architectural style of that era. At the Hangar 25 Air Museum, surveying the installations takes you back to World War II when the T-28, T-Bird, and the Harrier dominate the war-time skies.
To get a good view of the Big Spring cityscape, take your campervan rental to the towering bluffs of Big Spring State Park. From here, you'll be able to pick out the historic Hotel Settles, which tower above the plains. The Big Spring State Park Loop sees a high volume of joggers and cyclists, and come afternoon, nature lovers who want to take in the spectacular sunsets seen from the park.
