Found this gem by suggestion on Culturemap Houston. Stone Camp offers something I'd never heard of, a camp room, like camping without pitching a tent. Here, the camp room is a small stone room with its front wall screened and includes a screen door to allow the dry mountainous air to circulate but keep critters out. At night you can pull the heavy canvas curtain for complete privacy. This is not a motel room, it's a camp room with 2 vintage iron twin beds just down the way from a shared bathroom, just as one world share a bathroom in a camp ground. There is electricity and some rooms have a sink, which I like very much. Accommodations and bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. Randall and staff are very friendly, helpful and with lots of suggestions. Get a fresh made sandwich made to order at the market next door for your hiking lunch, they're packed and of substantial size, the breakfast biscuits and tacos are also deliciously homemade. We'd definitely stay at Stone Camp again and again.…
We stayed here two nights and altho a fairly basic room , it was clean and had everything that you could want. Refrigerator, microwave and an on-site deli with excellent sandwiches made to order along with other essentials. There is also a pool. It is walkable to all restaurants in town and a good jumping off location for Davis Mountains state park and the McDonald Observatory.
We chose this place due to its proximity to the observatory. This is not the typical brand name hotel experience that we are used to, in fact, the decor and age of the place was a throwback to my grandmothers house in the 60’s - but it was quiet and close to everything we wanted to do. Most importantly, it was very clean and the AC worked great! We stayed in the Queen Kitchenette Suite which had a small living area. The bed was firm & comfortable and the bathroom was small but adequate. Breakfast at the market was quite good!
My friend Brad Phenix recommended this place for me to relax and chill out in Fort Davis. I stayed in camp rooms and they were the best it was chilly at night time and comfortable during the day the place looked like it was I was going in a mountain somewhere and there's nothing in Texas like it it period definitely will stay there again Randall the owner makes it a great hospitality and a great place to just chill
The Tourist Camp is a wonderfully renovated and well-kept place to rest your head in one of Texas' most glorious areas. Their food store has great breakfast burritos and a lot of healthy and unique snacks. Owners Randall and Belinda do an awesome job running this family business and they always make you feel welcome and cozy. The pool is cool in the summer and the patio is perfect for gathering and drinking beer around the fire pit. Starry nights here never disappoint and you can see the milky way in the clear sky. The prices are fair and the rooms are worth every penny. Our family recommends your Fort Davis stay to be at The Stone Village Tourist Camp.
