For thousands of years, across hundreds of generations, people have come to Lubbock Lake. Located in the southernmost reaches of the Great Plains of North America, the waters of this ancient lake nourished a rich and abundant ecosystem that in turn, provided food, shelter, tools, and clothing to those who traveled across it or came to settle here. Clovis Age hunter-gatherers, who followed the Ancient Bison and Colombian Mammoth, the Apache and Comanche nations, and the founding of a modern city are each a part of the history of this National Historic Landmark that is one of the premier archaeological and research sites in North America. Lubbock Lake Landmark is a unit of the Museum of Texas Tech University.

  • Had a great day hike on the trails. There are evenly spaced picnic shelters all along the trail. The trail is open at all hours. The museum is open (see hours) even on the weekends. Both the trail and the museum are free. A great place to jog or bike as long as you are aware that the trails are rocky and loose. It's a great place to have a picnic.
  • Beautiful setting in an otherwise drab town. (BOOMER!)
  • Wonderful learning about the native people in this area and all the uses they had for the native plants!!
  • I had a fun picnic with the family here. We ate at one of the covered outdoor tables overlooking the "lake". Afterwards, we went inside the museum. Considering I wasn't expecting there to be a museum here, it was absolutely amazing! After the museum, we walked a few of the trails through the historic landmark. It ended up being a fun afternoon!
  • Overwhelming beautiful!!!!!
