On our way back north we drove from Big Bend up Hwy 118 and into the Davis Mountains where we spent a few days camping at Davis Mountains State Park.

Bureaucratic Incompetence PROS: Hiking, close to McDonald Observatory, thorough ranger talks, good water. Beautiful scenery. CONS: Paid $20 too much due to state park reservation system bureaucratic incompetence*1. Too smokey due to a “Prescribed Burn” program in the park. No cell coverage*2.

“Beautiful and peaceful. No cell service in campground, but 4 bars at top of mountain.”

Reviewed Dec 16, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed in mid-November. I had a full-hookup, pull-through site at the end of the road (site 10), so I had plenty of space without my neighbors being close. The cost was $25 for full hookups plus $6 per day vehicle fee. The campground was spotlessly clean. This is a beautiful park, with a road up to the top of the mountain at 5,500 ft... more

This was our first time to stay at Davis Mountains State Park and it won't be our last! The park is beautiful with lots to do. A good number of trails that range from easy to difficult. Our spot had a picnic table with a canopy. Lots of birds, if you are a birdwatcher you will love it here. We had Acorn Woodpeckers in the tree and two ... more

There was a glitch with our reservation (our fault), so when we arrived on a Thursday afternoon all the RV sites were full. We wanted to stay five nights and were offered a spot in the Equestrian area which is a couple hundred yards from the park entrance and across the road. Access is through a locked gate, you’re given the combinatio... more

We stayed in the non full hook up loop but water and electric were plenty for us in December. Not much privacy between spots but the park itself offered lots of activities. Roads were very walkable/bikeable or the park has close to 20 miles of hiking trails. Make sure to take the one from the CCC overlook to Ft. Davis. A shot walk with... more

Reviewed Nov 07, 2016

Overall Rating

Most of the water/ electric sites are very short. At registration they pick a site for you. Full hook up sites are pull thru and much longer.

No cell service at all even with a booster. There is wifi in the campground that was reasonable.

The lodge, the hikes and Fort Davis are all worth while.

Davis Sate Park is on the mountainside, about 10 minutes away from town. The campground is pretty and peaceful with a lot of space between campsites. There is little light pollution which makes for amazing night skies. We were at a full hook-up site in December 2014, and on cold mornings (20-25 degrees), the water connection would be f... more
