“Nice Hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Although the woman at the information center said this was the most strenuous hike, it was really very easy. Nevertheless, the vistas were fabulous and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the wide range of plants that grow in these mountains. A nice, relaxing outing - good for taking pictures of the area.

“Absolutely stunning scenery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The drive around the scenic circle was amazing. If you enjoy nature and unique scenery, this is a great drive. Not too lengthy and some of the little towns are great stops, as well.

“Nice park but really suffering due to the drought”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We visited this park years ago and it was so much greener. Regardless, take the scenic loop drive to see beautiful 360 view of the area! Also, try and stay at the Indian Lodge located in the Davis Mountains. It's a beautiful facility with a pool!

“Starry, starry nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Best kept secret in Texas. Great campsite with full hookup and cable. No wifi and no bars cell phone. Great birding. Pygmy owl in hole of telephone pole on our campsite. Fiery sunset followed by perhaps the clearest night sky I have seen. The Milky Way and every star crystal clear. Takes your breath away. Campground close to the art Mecca, Marfa.
