Enjoyed the few hours we had visiting here. Only had time for one short hike. We wouild have enjoyed making the hike down to the Ft Davis Historic Site, which is downhill from the Park, but we ran out of time. Very nice camping and picnic accomodations, along with a good visitor/interpretive center and gift shop.

Seems to be a great place for camping. We went for a hike and enjoyed the views. There wasn't a large number of trails, but they were well marked. Lots of rocks and hills so be prepared.

Perfect get away if you're an active outdoor family. Ton of trails for running, cycling and hiking. Trails vary in distance and suit every level of fitness and ability.

Very helpful ranger! Great views from places accessible to cars (although hair pin curves!). Was really breathtaking, especially on a very windy day!

A great place to park your trailer. Nice treed area with helpful park people! We spent three nights in this location and it was quiet and peaceful. You can also take a scenic drive in the park for a beautiful view. Be sure and make a trip to the Indian Lodge for breakfast or lunch.

Beautiful views, friendly staff - worth the drive! Take the hike over the mountain to Fort Davis. And if you don't take the trail, be sure to drive up to the top of the mountain for the sunset views. The staff are incredible and very helpful. I would go back in a heartbeat

We camped here for 4 nights over Spring Break, State Parks are always very full of all kinds of new and old campers over the Break and often the experience can be frustrating with facilities and personnel maxed out. The Davis Mountains State Park staff were wonderful with service, keeping the much-used restrooms stocked and (relatively) clean, and patrolling during... More

It is such a nice park with lots of camping spaces and areas for recreation for families. There were 2 wildlife viewing areas where we saw many kinds of birds. We walked one... More
