Son and I camped here for a couple nights a year ago. I loved the scenery, the hiking trails, the fresh air, and the animal sightings (deer, skunk, javelina, birds). With the wet spring we've had it's probably even more beautiful now. It was kind of dry and recovering from a big fire when we went last year. I'd go... More

We stayed at the Inn. It was nice comfortable room with all you needed. Room had a great view and was quiet. Park was really nice and have lots of wildlife to see. It was an experience not having cell service or Wi-Fi in rooms. You can go to scenic point and get cell service and awesome views.

Old lodge built in the CCC era. Neat rooms. We stayed in the big suite on top. Lots of atmosphere. If you can't get lucky there, you are surely out of luck! BTW: 2 Great stand alone birding site there. More different birds than you'll see almost anywhere else. 21 different Hummers seen there in spring/fall

We were in the area so we decided to drive through and check out this campground. There are about 100 sites, some for tents and others for rvs, both water and electric and full hook up sites are available. There are multiple bath/shower houses. They even have some primitive equestrian camping areas. Lots of hikes on the property as well... More

The park was pristine and the staff were extremely helpful. The hiking and trails were outstanding. The camping and hotel facilities were first class.

Loop is paved and meanders through the state park. Some of the scenery impressed; however felt we could have better used our time with another half day in Big Bend.

Davis Mts. State Park is an excellent facility with camping and trailer sites as well as a nice hotel (Indian Lodge). Entry fees are reasonable and the area is a nice retreat from the summer heat. Features Ranger talks in the summer and a beautiful scenic drive. Hiking trails are also available, but are challenging. It's a great place for... More

This place has some really nice hikes (don’t expect any cell service, and the WiFi is sketchy), but you should be here to get away from it all anyway! Convenient to the McDonald Observatory, 12 miles down the road. What a great resource for life altering star-gazing (take in a Star Party on a Tues, Fri, or Sat night) or... More

Great camping sites and several trails; Indian Lodge, built by CCC in 1933 is a state park within this state park. Skyline Drive leads up to beautiful views of surroundings. Black Bear restaurant at Indian Lodge.
