“Super Dark Sky & Absolutely Quiet!”

Overall Rating

For those traversing west Texas via I-10 and needing a quiet place to rest, this little gem is almost perfect! As a boondocker, having those places to pull over to sleep is essential. And in Texas on I-10, since there's little to no natural lands set aside for this purpose, that typically means the roadside rest areas (those of you that have done that know it is almost impossible to sleep with all the semi-trucks sliding just 8' outside you window) or a Walmart (noisy as well).

Though this park is 28 miles south of I-10 southward on 118 from Kent, it is certainly worth the extra miles for the beauty and quiet of the Davis Mountains.

Besides being ultra-quiet, this little gem has the added bonus of the McDonald Observatory just 9 miles further southeast on 118. Regularly scheduled star-parties occur on Saturday evenings. On-line reservations are a must.

“Quite at night, dark skies”

We camped here to be close to a star party at McDonald Observatory. The sky is realllly dark and great for stargazing. It’s a pull off area and the road is very accessible to any type of vehicle. Each site has a picnic table, grill and trash can. No water or bathrooms on site. Our xterra would have fit at any of the sites, but we also saw sprinter vans and medium sized RVs there. While the camping is very close to the main road, it was quiet at night without much traffic. One other perk is that the 2.5mi Masera Canyon loop leaves right from the day use parking lot.
