Davis Mountains State Park offers campers a quiet, comfortable base for exploring the rugged mountains of this remote region. Although not secluded, the campsites are roomy and far enough apart. The bathrooms are convenient and clean. We saw a variety of wildlife on our hikes through the park and enjoyed learning about the parks plants during a presentation at the... More

For a daily entry fee around six dollars one can enjoy some spectacular hiking trails (note: many are steep)and convenient camping (extra fee) in one of the (literally and figuratively!) coolest areas of Texas. Staff here are overwhelmingly hospitable and helpful which makes the visit even more enjoyable. OK, so these are not the mountains of CO/WY/MT but they are... More

We stayed at the Indian lodge at this park. The view is amazing. Make sure to take the Skyline Drive up the mountain. I was unsure about taking it because I was just in a small Ford Focus. I made it up and down the mountain just fine. I would just make sure your brakes are good. There were several... More

Fantastic views from both the Indian Lodge Trail and the scenic drive in the park. The playground is pretty sad, with just two swings. Great location - you feel remote but are a short 5 minute drive to Fort Davis town.

It's a great place for hiking but the trail heads and maps were confusing. Still amazing once we figured it out. Looks like great camping for those who like that.

We love visiting Davis Mountains State Park! This is the best park in the state and the prettiest part of Texas! Our favorite hike is up the old CCC road to the lookout, and then over into the Fort Davis National Historic site and all around the cliffs behind the Fort. The brand new bird watching blind (along the main... More

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!
