- Large, peaceful and basic site in the Great Plains of West Texas
- A 30-minute drive to Buffalo Springs Lake; under two hours to canyons
- Small private gun range on site and a short drive from the city shops
Sunrises are quite sensational in the Great Plains of West Texas… and that’s where Sunrise Plains gets its name. You see, this large, basic site 14 miles from Lubbock has views for miles and miles, so it’s primed for gathering the gang (kids and dogs included) to watch the sunrise from the large, open field.
As you might expect, it’s incredibly peaceful on this patch of land. You’ll have all the more time to unwind, as the basic set-up allows barbecues, perhaps for some alfresco dining, a breakfast burger, brew, or whatever else you fancy along with your views.
Whenever you want to scout out some restaurants or gather some good grub for the grill, Lubbock (20 minutes’ drive) has restaurants and shops in plenty, plus the Texas Tech University (15 minutes) for those travelling students among you… and there's entertainment in the form of disc golf and equestrian trails in the city park. There are often dogs and children along the main road to the site, so please be aware that speeding is very dangerous.
While there are lakes, canyons and miles of trails in state parks under two hours’ drive from the site, those of you who are keen on sharpening up another skill might want to take advantage of the small private gun range on the property, available from sunrise to sundown with permission.

Got the hots for watersports? Buffalo Springs Lake (half an hour’s drive) has a lot on that front from boating and rowing to canoeing and kayaking. Jet ski rental will pick up the speed even more, while those of you who want the views without the water might want to roam onto the hiking trails onshore.
Another water spot – unusual for this desert region – is Blue Hole (three hours and 15 minutes). Snorkelling, swimming, scuba diving and cliff jumping are just some of the ways to take the plunge in this natural swimming hole.
Then to sprinkle some canyon views into your stay, there’s Palo Duro Canyon State Park (an hour and 50 minutes) for that. It’s the second biggest canyon in the United States, so there are a few ways to cover some ground. Other than hiking, there are mountain biking trails, horseback tours from the stables or a birdwatching tour to spy on the feathered species in the park.
Caprock Canyons State Park (an hour and 45 minutes) is another special sight… you could catch bison and bats here and go boating, fishing or swimming in Lake Theo to cool off after your hike.
