Beautiful scenery heading into park from any direction. Check in easy with online reservations. Loop we were in full hook ups and level. Sites are relatively spacious. Wi Fi and cell service terrible but Skyline Drive takes you to high point where cell service very good. If you wake up early the sunrise from the high point is gorgeous.... more

“Great wilderness camping ”

Reviewed Feb 27, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed there when it was very cold but we still really loved it. When we woke up, there were often mule deers right beside our RV! Sites are small, but nicely wooded. Great location to go hiking. Take note, there is no WiFi not cell reception.

We love this park and have been going here for years. This is an older CCC park in the Mountains of West Texas. The elevation is 4,200, which allows for a cooler summer temp, but beware it's West Texas, it'll be hot in August. Wide variety of campsites, there is a section for Big rigs that are pull through sites. However, there ar... more

Davis Mountains SP was our first stop in Texas and it was not what we expected. Checking in, staff was not pleasant - very stale. Put us in a spot where our trailer would have barely fit and we would have had to park the truck next to our trailer. So we found a different spot and camped there. All spots are very tight! We didn't find D... more

We spent the evening in Marfa them drove the 20 minutes to this campsite to escape the high hotel prices in the area. We arrived late and left early in the morning so didn’t explore the park much. We stayed in the water only area and stayed in a tent. The sites were right on the man road through the park and there were vehicles driv... more

Date of stay: Nov. 28 - Dec. 10, 2018 The sites at Davis are great, but if you're in a big rig, check them all before committing. Some reviews will tell you to select sites 1-16, and those are certainly more level, but a few weren't super long and some had tree impediments. The sites on the hill 17-2? were longer, but very unlevel, ... more

“Great Park!”

Reviewed Dec 22, 2018

Overall Rating

Very Nice State Park, nice sites, very clean bathrooms we enjoyed the hiking and overlooks and nice interpretive center and ranger programs. No cell service in the park unless you hike or drive to the overlook looking down on Fort Davis, Internet only available near the interpretive center. We'll be back.

What a beautiful place in SW Texas. We camped here during a cold spell but still had a great time. Hiking is fantastic, bathrooms are clean, and the staff is helpful. Town of Fort Davis is only about 3 miles away for groceries, or other needs. We didn't do much as far as day trips anywhere, as we were having a great time in the park, b... more

We reserved on Thursday night, and the only spots left were primitive equestrian spots. When we arrived on Friday afternoon the ranger put us in an electric and water spot. Our Texas State Parks card got us half off of our stay. It's all paved road, easy access. Site 60 was plenty long for our trailer, level and close to a bath... more
