Abilene State Park is tucked away between Buffalo Gap and Lake Abilene. Saturday and Sunday we’ve arranged with the park management to waive the entrance fee so registered Tour de Gap riders can have free showers over at the park, which is only 9 minutes from the finish line.
While you’re there, why not take the family into the park and look around? Your temporary pass will let you drive around in the park, seeing the variety of camping sites, including the only yurt cabins at a state park in the state of Texas. There’s a informative nature trail along Elm Creek for exploring what the park has to offer. Click the map below to see a larger map of the park.
