Staff was totally Texas friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Park Hosts were as well. Great little campground full of peace and quiet while we were there. 4 days of heaven. Perfect weather helped make it one of the best camping trips ever.

This park is a true West Texas gem. The trails are in excellent condition for hiking, numerous campsite options (full hook-up or electric & water only). Some aren't well-shaded but many are. There is more than 10 miles of trails to hike and the backpacking/primitive trail provides spectacular vistas as do the trails in the rest of the park. There... More

Either way, this park is a very nice State park! One of the best. When we camped here, the showers and bathrooms were kept pretty clean. Campsites are very well maintained and you're not too close to your neighbors. The staff is nice and informative. The new bird blinds are a must for any birder or photographer! Highly recommend anyone... More

We loved Indian Lodge and the entire park. The Lodge was great, and in a convenient location to drive into Ft. Davis, the scenic loop, McDonald Observatory, and a quick trip to Marfa for dinner and out to try to see the Marfa lights. The park was well kept and all employees we encountered were extremely nice and helpful.

Travel the back roads, wilderness loop (49 miles) to see a slice of Texas that is unbelievable. Tall Mountains, Wind swept plains, deep valley vistas.

We stayed here when we went to McDonald Observatory. We geocached, ran, hiked, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The nights are cool and the stars are spectacular. The restaurant is delicious. Their portions are large and the prices are reasonable. The restrooms are clean and the park is well-maintained. We tried to visit the nature center, but it was not open... More

I am a birder, and this is the place to go to look for western birds and other fauna. They have two blinds that are great for taking pictures from. The rangers are nice and very helpful.

We stayed at the park in our travel trailer. It was quiet and peaceful even on a holiday weekend. Restrooms and showers are kept clean and stocked. All hookups available and dump station provided. Trails are awesome and available for hiking, equestrian, and mountain biking. Many beautiful views await with an incredible array of wildlife and plant species. Hotel accommodations... More

Easily one of the best Texas state parks I've been to and I've been to a lot of them. Sure the mountains probably have a lot to do with it and why not? This part of Texas should not be missed. Every outdoor activity you can imagine with the exception of anything involving a lake. Tons of wildlife and birds... More
