We stayed here for one night. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Quiet and peaceful. Full hookups and decent sized spaces. $13 with a Passport America membership for the first night only. Easy short drive up the mountain to the McDonald Observatory.

This historic ranch and summer camp location is absolutely gorgeous. If you are looking to get away from the noise of everyday life, relax, reconnect with nature, and see more stars than you ever knew were in the night sky, this is the place for you. As it is a ranch and summer camp, the rooms are simple - which...

I was extremely disappointed with my stay at Prude Ranch. I went on a school trip and stayed in one of the dormitories, and it was disgusting. There was filth everywhere, nothing was cleaned, and the AC/heating made an awful rattling noise every time you turned it to a certain temperature. The beds and linens weren't clean, and I'm very...

Clean rooms with friendly staff in a rustic setting. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting the McDonald Observatory. We enjoyed riding horses then drove up to the Star Party. The setting is rustic and beautiful. If you want a remote camp type environment I recommend Prude Ranch.

Just visited here during the bike ride, didn't stay. But looks like a cool place. Tent camping, rv spots, cabins, lodge, restaurant, activities. Right outside of town. Beautiful sunrise views. Close to McDonald observatory

My family has been visiting Fort Davis for 20 years. It's such a quaint, historic West Texas town & the Prude Ranch is where we always stay. Great rustic cabins, remote location, incredible food & fun activities for the whole family. Just a few minutes out of town and the drive is amazing.

We went riding for an hour ride. It was through a 1200 acre ranch. The ride was at a walk, because it was very rocky. I like to go faster but it was really fun to ride through the hilly terrain and see all the native dessert plants. It was really fun desire the slow pace. The guide Cody was...

We stayed here in our Casita RV one night during our most recent adventure in far west Texas. Prude Ranch is located 6 miles past Fort Davis and on the way to McDonald Observatory. Since we were going to the observatory, it was perfect location. They have cabins and rooms but we stayed in the pull-through section of their RV...

The food was industrial - canned, frozen and thawed or pre-packed. Not very good. Everything is pretty worn and not particularly clean. Looks like it might have been a cool place at one time. No longer.
