The park rangers were very informative. It was nice to walk freely and look around the fort. All Rangers were nice. The walk to the scenic top of the mountain is worth the view.

The Fort has a cool little museum, lots of artifacts, and a bunch of buildings, some of which have been restored and refurnished as they were when the fort was used. Very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable staff too!

This historic site is very well restored and maintained. The map is clearly marked to tour on your own, and interesting signs are posted along the walk around the park.

This place seems so quiet, sleepy, fairly dormant location when you first see it from afar. However this is deceiving. Once you enter the park you find that it's lively, rich with history, rich with learning activities. We had a great time exploring the park,...More

We stopped in to Fort Davis for a visit while staying in the Davis Mountains. There is a really nice little museum set up, with some interactive exhibits. Skip the video, it is rather boring. Instead, take the time to visit all the outbuildings, and...More
