Lubbock: Buffalo Springs Lake

Buffalo Springs Lake is a natural, spring-fed oasis nestled in beautiful Yellow House Canyon on one of the forks of the Brazos River. Here, where nomadic Indians once camped, thousands of families escape yearly to quench their thirst for fun in the sun. Camping is available at the lake's public recreation area. Bird watchers, bring your binoculars and enjoy the Audubon Society Nature Trail. Enjoy a picnic right beside the Lake at one of our many picnic areas, highlighted with abundant shade, clean facilities and unspoiled surroundings.
