We spent a few hours driving around the state park as we were staying at Balmorhea State Park (admission was free due to this). The campsites were busy due to spring break, but it did not seem crowded when driving around. There are walking/hiking trails throughout the area all different length and levels. You can also drive to the tops... More

We are camping in Alpine, but we thought we would check out the state park since we have an annual pass. It was worth the visit. This park has spots for all kinds of camping, from tent to full hookups for RVs. The Indian Lodge on site offers hotel accommodations for those who don't want to camp. The lodge even... More

of course you have to pay to just drive thought, but be sure to take the high scenic road all the way to the top. We got out and hiked for about 30 minutes. I think you can take a trail that comes out over the back top bluff of the Fort.

We had friends who were coming a week later than us in their new RV and asked us to check out the RV Park and Campground for them. We gave it a big thumbs up, beautiful sites, very clean, hiking, good hookups, etc. We were a bit early in the spring, and I can imagine it is even more beautiful... More

Even as remote as this place is, it is still very popular. We stayed two nights hoping to see the stars, but the weather did not cooperate. I hope to go another time. Also, despite having metal fire rings, we were unable to have a campfire, so the cold mornings and nights were not as comfortable as they could have... More

There's a lot of history to be told in that part of Texas. Driving into the State Park is quite breathtaking! The mountainous scenic drive along with notable historic markers that commemorate stage coachman who frequently traveled that area years ago ~ adds a touch of history before getting to Davis Mountains State Park. Once inside the Davis Mountains the... More

This state park offers all the amenities needed however due to a burn ban we couldn't cook out which took away from the camping experience. Although, the restrooms are clean and well maintained and the showers have hot water. The campsites are a bit rough and rocky due to being in the mountains, so bring good tent pegs and a... More
