• Surface Area: 595 Acres
• Maximum Depth: 25 feet
Lake Abilene is a 595-acre impoundment located on Elm Creek, about 20-miles south of Abilene, Texas. The lake level fluctuates moderately, and is sometimes prone to long periods of dropping water levels. Lake access is available only through Abilene State Park*. Public shore fishing access is good. Boat ramps are largely unusable when the lake falls about 7-feet below the spillway level. A 4-wheel-drive vehicle is necessary to launch boats under low water conditions. Campsites are available on the main campus of Abilene State Park across FM 89.

*NOTICE REGARDING LAKE ACCESS

The only access to Lake Abilene is through Abilene State Park, which is occasionally closed for wildlife management activities. Check the park web page for closure notices and dates.
