ABSOLUTE AWESOMENESS! You'd think that it would be miserably hot in West Texas in the middle of summer, but the elevation is such that it didn't get much above 90 during the day and into the 60 & 70's at night. Plus, the summer is...More

When I first visited this park as a kid, I thought we were in Colorado. Yes, Texas has mountains, only around 8,000 feet, but beautiful mountains nonetheless. The best view of the Davis Mountains and the nearby McDonald Observatory is at the top of Skyline...More

We drove through because of knee surgery. Many places to camp and hike. I found they even had an adobe state hotel that included a restaurant. Surprise. Make reservations way in advance.

We stayed at Indian Lodge for 3 nights and were very pleased. The park rangers were helpful and kind people. The pool was clean and the atmosphere breathtaking. I didn't want to leave.

Very nice campground in the mountains with level campsites and full hookups. Great for hiking, look outs that you can drive to and excellent campground support from the front office to the campground hosts.

This Park was on my way between Ft. Davis and McDonald Observatory. My end point for the day was several hundred miles away, so took a short drive through Davis Mountains State Park. There were a lot of campers there, and several wildlife blinds. According...More

Stayed at Indian Lodge and enjoyed the beautiful views. Room was very clean with easy access. Loved sitting on porch and watching thunderstorms and hearing the singing of the barn swallows with nests of babies in rafters.
