The big oak and pecan trees at Abilene State Park offer plenty of shade for visitors seeking a peaceful getaway. The park's historic swimming pool, built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, has entertained generations of kids. And for a completely different experience, spend the night in one of the park's yurts. These round, tent-like structures are based on nomadic Mongolian dwellings dating back thousands of years -- only the park's yurts come with electricity.
