  • Nice RV spots with full hookups. Convenient access. Interesting small towns to visit in the area. We enjoyed our stay.  more »
  • There is not whole a lot to do in Ft Davis, so i guess after the Observatory the park is the place to check out. There are some nice hiking trails and you can meet some wild life (apparently they've g...  more »
  • Not worth going all the way is not normal as compared to nature, such as big bend stopped by on the way to the Alpine drive from El Paso to bad. Scenic driving route and turn, looked at in the round trip takes about 30 minutes. There are a number of hiking trails, but mid-September afternoon still gave up in the scorching heat.

  • 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.
  • My first visit. Loved it! Super Staff, very clean park. Wildlife viewing centers are great! Will be back to visit.
  • No amitise except hiking , the buildings all have a very funky smell to them. They do have some interesting buildings to visit and some really cool scenes of the how the mountain was made from a giant volcano.
  • 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.
