Why Choose Big Lake?
The City of Big Lake is strategically located at the crossroads of two highways, US Hwy 67 and State Hwy 137. To the south, the I-20 is approximately 45 miles away. To the north, the I-10 is a one hour drive. San Angelo, Big Spring, Midland and Odessa are within easy access of our city. There is no logical way to get to the Fort Stockton area from points east such as San Angelo except through Big Lake. Big Lake is also a well- traveled point from Big Spring (or point north), towards the valley to Del Rio and the border of Mexico.

The Delhi Ranch Industrial Park, east of town on HWY. 67, has grown from six (6) companies in 2011 to twenty-four (24) companies in 2014 and the list keeps growing.
