The Great Outdoors

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.

Exploring the Area

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.West Texas is under the radar of most tourists, so you'll occasionally find surprises all to yourself if you’re willing to dig a little deeper. If you wish to immerse yourself in the area without the crowds, book a rental RV in Big Spring, Texas, and map out a journey that will take you to its hidden wonders.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
