We were here 2/20/21 to 2/26/21. Weather was great, mid 70's during the day, 40 to 50 at night. 

Horrible roads, takes forever to get anywhere! We loved the Isolation, saw very few people unless we went into the Ranger Station. Bathrooms and showers very clean, although never used showers. Bring…

On The Loneliest Road in Texas

Stayed in early May. Warm days, cool night. First of all. tons of decent hiking, especially if you're the explore-off-the-trail type. Apparently there is a wonderful, full-service lodge, which I saw from above (on a trail) but didn't visit. So if camp food is getting old, mosey over to their…

  • Nice ravine and hills to explore right behind my tent.
  • Ko'olau loved the views from the hikes.

Very nice State park and Campground

We stayed here one night in April 2021 and could have gladly stayed longer. Nice campground, with privacy between sites and some shade. There are good hikes right from the campground , which is nice. It’s much cooler here than other nearby parts of Texas and locals told us that this is generally…

Fine Place To Overnite Before Entering Big Bend

Great small RV park with motel. All spaces with electric and water, showers are great. Has a nice courtyard with large fire pit. Very clean and quite. It’s right off the main road into Big Bend National Park, about a 40 minute drive.

Nice sites, Amenities could be improved

Nice clean sites that are spacious and not on top of your neighbor.

Location is good for visiting the area if you need to be connected - wifi was good enough close to the office and cell service was also good enough. Since going any closer to Big Bend means you drop off completely, this was a…

Darkest nights, coolest vibes

Loved this place! Price was super reasonable for FHU at $35 a night! We had a site in the back so it was a little more spread out and away from the road. Might not have been so happy with the front sites. This place has great landscaping and a beautiful courtyard that boasts a nightly fire.…

Great spot for Trans-Pecos camping

The Davis Mountains and the state park offer an opportunity for Texans to experience all the Trans-Pecos has to offer.

With close proximity to McDonald Observatory, Balmorhea, Alpine, Marathon, Marfa, and even close enough for a day trip to Big Bend & Terlingua, this campground is tough to…

Beautifully quiet and flat property

Nestled right next to the entrance of Big Bend Ranch State Park and only 8 minutes from Presidio, this park has tons of spaces with plenty of room to have your own little slice of the desert. We stayed in spot 69 because we are immature, but all of the spots offer great views and peace and quiet.…

Beautiful Night Skies

Between the elevation and the dark skies, the nights are spectacular. We have stayed in August 2 years in a row and we loved the cool evenings to sit out and watch the stars. They have a lot of great trails, and you never know what wildlife you will see. We have seen Mule deer, Javalenas, Audad, as…

Totally Sustainable with room for stretching out and star gazing

My experience was everything I expected; solitude, stargazing, sustainability, and gorgeous views.  I believe November is the perfect time to camp here.  Lots of space to enjoy some peace and solitude.  Camp hosts' were terrific. They were always willing to share their knowledge of solar power and…

If you are looking to get out into the backcountry of Big Bend and truly experience it’s vast remoteness & beauty, then this is one of the best places to do just that. The hiking is incredible & the wildlife is amazing, Black Bears, mountain lions, javelinas, coyotes, big horn sheep, rattle…

Nice Park with a Gem of a Historic Lodge

“The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas!” 

Tucked within the heart of the West Texas mountains and one of the darkest skies in the contiguous 48, lies this stunning State Park, built by the CCC in the 1930’s. The beautiful campsites offer privacy, space, and full…

Great place, but a quick heads up

We spent a few nights at Davis Mountains and it was gorgeous....for southwest Texas, haha. The hiking is great and the spots, we stayed in our NoBo 19.3. We took our 7 year old, 9 year old and 2 dogs on the Skyline Trail hike. It’s one of the longer trails and we had to catch the CCC trail to head…

Better Than Most RV Parks

I stayed here for two nights during the Texas snow and deep freeze of Feb. 14 to 16, 2021. It was comfortable to be in the company of so many as the park was packed, RV Parks are not my thing so I left on snow covered roads (no snow plows in TX) and drove 80 miles south. The manager called me a few…
