“Skyline drive a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

This small park is well equipped with a lodge, RV sites and tent sites. There is also a restaurant in the park at the lodge. This park does not have a park store, but Porter's grocery if very good and is only about 5 minutes away. The skyline drive takes you to some really nice views of the Davis Mountains and should not be missed. The hiking trails are very steep and not for a leisurely stroll.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Great views with chances to see wildlife. The best hike in the park will take you to the Ft. Davis National Park and back, about 5 miles.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Beautiful vistas. Come watch the sun set. (Be sure to wait 30 minutes or so after sunset for the best colors.) Very clean and well-maintained. Would be great for RV. Good restaurant at Indian Lodge. Great hiking.

“Great Place for a stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Very nice park with great prices. A couple of nice 3-4 mile mountain hikes available. Shower and bathroom facilities were fine. Some sites up on the hill for rv's and some lower. The ones higher had a better view. Entrance was easy to find and close to the nice little town of Ft. Davis. Groceries and a couple of small but tasty restaurants in town. McDonald Observatory close with Star parties on Tuesday and Thurs. Make reservations for that. Some great driving for motorcycles or sports cars on the 118 that goes by the park.
