  • We stayed at Indian Lodge for 3 nights and were very pleased. The park rangers were helpful and kind people. The pool was clean and the atmosphere breathtaking. I didn't want to leave.  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.
  • 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.
