  • This is our second visit to Davis Mountains State Park, and we were just as impressed this visit as we were the last. Our campsite (#16) was wonderful -- beautiful views of the mountains (and unfortun...  more »
  • We spent the day hiking in Davis and it was really beautiful. The lodge in the middle of the park was a big surprise and really cool to see. Built in the 1930's to accommodate a new type of traveler- ...  more »

  • Stayed here at Indian Lodge for two days and did some hiking and biking. Clean, well maintained park nestled in a valley between two mountains with and intermittent stream flowing though. Biked the old CCC trail to the overlook at the end of Skyline drive. Great views from the top, but I would recommend a full suspension bike for any trail in the park due to all of the rocks encountered. You can also drive to the top with great picnic areas overlooking the town of Fort Davis. Hint: excellent cell reception at the top.
  • Beautiful park with camping and lodging facilities. The fees are very reasonable and a 10 minute drive to Ft. Davis if you need supplies or want to eat at a restaurant. Tours available at McDonald Observatory just 15 minutes away.
  • Great campground. Tons of hiking. Clean and warm bathrooms and showers. No cell service but there are 2 places in the park where you can get it and the staff will tell you where. Dogs are allowed on the trails. Tons of spots. We were there during very cold weather and still found plenty to do.
  • OMG I love this place! The road trip to get her was the best. The rangers are very helpful and informative about the hiking trails. We just visited the park for some hiking but I can't wait to plan a trip to stay in the near future. They even had restrooms up high on our hike. Great place to unwind and relax.
  • Really enjoyed the hikes and the views. It's $6 per person for the day pass but seemed well worth it at the end. The park was clean and especially the bathrooms were spotless. Well done to the park staff.
