We took the Indian Lodge tour after camping and we were pleased with both. There was also nice wildlife viewing and a scenic drive. The tour was more a presentation on the CCC by Volunteer Gerry. The kitchen was not open due to electrical problems so the staff joined the tour - thanks to Karen the Superintendent as this was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Davis Mtns. SP. We planned to spend a long weekend, and ended up staying a week. We went to the bird blinds at least once each day, and attended many of the excellent programs, including ranger-guided hikes and evening talks. We were there in July, when it gets a little toasty in the late... More

Ft. Davis is very rustic yet scenic. This park is rustic but some spots do have sewer, 30/50 amp service. not all spaces have shade and can be uncomfortable. Is a quiet, well maintained, and park ranger is attentive. As with many parks that are in a hilly or mountainous area, your space will be as level as possible, some... More

Really beautiful! Followed the map while in our jeep and even decided to hike around for quite some time. Saw some neat rock formations and the trails were marked in most places! Would love to go back and camp!

This is a very beautiful park even if it did get down to 20 degrees last night. There are two bird watching stations that guarantee you to see birds everyday. Of course it depends on the time of year as to which birds you will see. We chose full hook ups for $25 a night. The lodge is available to... More

This is such an incredible site. Looking at it I could see a collection of fingers folding together like a window curtain. You just have to see it.

I lived in Texas for most of my life before moving overseas. I came here to West Texas for my first time and was taken away by the novelty (to me, of course) of mountains in Texas. And this park offers a nice area to get away and go for a hike. Definitely worth it.

This park is beautiful and most people don't stop by here to go to Big Bend instead. Firstly, the park rangers and volunteers are absolute dears. We went on a Bird Viewing hike led by the ranger and it was so fun! Be at the park entrance by the time it's set for and then you follow the ranger to... More

We enjoyed the scenery here as it is so different from ours in Houston area. We loved the wildlife viewing area and interpretive center where we saw many migrating birds. The headquarters trail was a joke as it was very easy. We enjoyed the drive up Skyline Drive and at the top of the drive we were able to get... More

My husband and I stayed there December 29th 2016 - January 8th 2017. We have a 41' 5th wheel. The location was large (if a little lopsided) with lots of space between units. The park rangers were friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The Davis Mountains are spectacular and the McDonald Observatory is only 16 miles away.... More
