Abilene State Park sits in a semi-arid region of short prairie grass, brushland and wooded stream valleys. It is among a low range of hills called the Callahan Divide in the extreme western portion of North Central Texas.
Look for trees such as mesquite, juniper, cedar, native pecan, elm, live oak, hackberry, Texas red oak and redbud, and various other plants and wildflowers.
Enjoy great wildlife observation and photography here. You might see white-tailed deer, raccoons, armadillos, foxes, squirrels and cottontail rabbits.
Many types of birds visit or live in the park, including the Mississippi kite, greater roadrunner, Northern cardinal, hummingbird, mockingbird, and many others. Anglers catch bass, crappie, catfish and perch.
