This town is the Dimmit County seat. The famous El Camino Real de los Tejas, which once connected Mexico with Spanish-controlled towns in Texas, passes near Carrizo Springs. The town name is derived from the abundant Carrizo Cane that once proliferated around the freely flowing springs.

Deer hunters prize the area, which is noted for having more trophy bucks per square mile than any other region in the state. Carrizo Springs Golf Course is a public championship nine-hole course. Open daily. 830/876-2596.

Annual events include Bullnanza in the spring and October Fest in autumn.
