We loved our first visit to this Texas State Park. It was quiet, clean facilities, and the staff was helpful. Tara did a great job with a Javalina program. The Lodge & Restaurant were closed for cleaning/refurb so we will go back for another visit. The hiking trails were great - some with altitude, lovely views!

We camped here in a travel trailer for four nights. A lot of pull through sites are very nice with hookups and we especially appreciated the cable hookup so we could watch the college football championship game. Weather wasn't great for hiking, but we enjoyed the hiking trails anyway... just couldn't see a lot with the fog. Skyline drive was... More

Unusual rock formations, almost 10 miles of hiking trails through various parts of the park, interesting wildlife (javelinas), good place for camping

Camp sites are nicely spaced, most with good cover. Plan on no cell or data signal except on Skyline Trail and Road and high points in park. Park staff very friendly and helpful in all areas. Indian Lodge was beautiful and would be well worth the money to stay in! Trails are easily navigated, but can be strenuous on the... More

Majestic, rugged beauty. Great hiking and modern conveniences like wifi. Black Bear restaurant at Indian Lodge is very good if you're tired of roughing it.

This state park has cool weather even during the blast furnace of a West Texas summer. It is high in the Davis Mountains making it one of the most pleasant places to stay in the hot Texas summer. There are miles of great walking trails and you can walk directly to Ft Davis National Historic Monument. We will be coming... More

We just returned from four nights camping at this park, now my favorite in Texas after Enchanted Rock. With kids there is so much to keep you busy, between great hikes, beautiful surroundings, new interpretive center and bird blinds, Fort Davis, McDonald Observatory, and Marfa also not far away. Be prepared for wildlife; mountain lions possible, deer an javalina inevitable.

I stopped here for an afternoon hike and it was well worth it. The rangers were very friendly and helpful, identifying the best trails given the amount of time I had. The hike itself was breathtaking, with sweeping views of the mountains and the rest of the park. All the roads and trails I used were noticeably well-maintained. If you... More

We stay in hotels for travel for work - so I branched out because not a lot of choices - well, do NOT skip the state parks. This place is very nice! At end of road, hike around, rooms actually quite nice (fireplaces, but not sure if can use always) The sunrise from window was crazy. Big room. We had... More
