A Gem of West Texas

Nice hiking, interesting lectures from the rangers, and the real gem of the park is the historic Indian Lodge hotel.

Time well spent. Our tour was by car. We didn't stay there but the sites were wonderful. One more reason to go to Ft. Davis.

Husband & I stayed at Indian Lodge Hotel inside the State Park, where there was also plenty of campsites & RV slots. The mountains are magnificant! Lots of wildlife, too! Nature at its best! We were there from Tuesday late afternoon through Thursday afternoon. Was extremely tired come 10pm+ and attributed to the elevation. Didn't notice any other breathing difficulty... More

Beautiful, good camping spaces, clean bathrooms. Lots of hiking trails. The weather in Fort Davis is fantastic in the summer with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. The state park is a great place to get away from the heat.

We tent camped here because we couldn't camp at Balmorhea State Park and boy we are extremely glad we did! We got to pick our on campsite and it was cheap! They were very nice at the front office. Great hiking trails that the kids loved. It rained so it filled up the little creek just enough to hear it... More

Scenic road is very nice. There are restrooms up there but bring your own TP with you. Small park. There are some good trails that start at the other side of Indian Lodge office. We found some moderate trails as well as some pretty steep ones. Park camping, RV and what appeared to be cabins.

The entrance fee was $6/person. There was a very short scenic loop with a couple of nice views of the Davis Mountains and valley towns below. Ample spaces for camping was available. Nice views if you're in the area but I would not suggest making a special trip to visit this park. It was fine for us since it is... More

We were staying at Indian Lodge, and so went on a couple of the hikes in this park and loved them. The scenery I think is fabulous and it is out of the way enough to make you feel like you have really gotten away. A great spot.
