We stayed at Davis Mountain for 3 nights in January. It was a great place to base out of to explore that part of the state. We took day trips to Fort Davis, Marfa, and Alpine. Wildlife was EVERYWHERE. Sit quietly around dawn/dusk and you'll see deer, javalina, and more. Showers and bathrooms were good, and park staff were all... More

This is one awesome state park! We've visited approximately 25 Texas state parks and Davis Mountains is at the top of the list. The park staff working the front desk were extremely helpful. The RV site we were assigned required some minor leveling but was otherwise fine. The sites have cable, which is unusual for an SP. we did a... More

We made a quick stop in to the Davis Mountains State Park when visiting Marfa, Fort Davis and Alpine. The views from the scenic overlook in the park are absolutely breathtaking. The overlook can be accessed by hiking or vehicle. The park entrance fees are on par with other Texas state parks, and when we went (during the week on... More

My husband and I hiked the Indian Lodge Loop Trail. We enjoyed the many high viewpoints of the countryside. We also enjoyed a very nice bird blind along the main road of the park. It was very well done with lots of birds present--very relaxing to sit there and watch.

You can tent camp here or bring your RV. We stayed in the Indian Lodge inside the park. There are paved roads with walking trails off the road. YOu can take the Skyline drive up to the top of a mountain and get incredible views. Or you can get up there at night to take night sky and star photos.... More
