Davis Mountains State Park
One of the most scenic parks in Texas, this state park offers several miles of hiking trails, camping sites, and an interpretive center. Activities to enjoy will visiting include camping, sightseeing, picnicking, hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking.
We just got back from a 4 night tent camping trip in the park. Wow, this park is wonderful. The campsite we had (#81) backed up to Keesey Creek and felt secluded. The wildlife watching is spectacular- javelina, mule deer, turkey, tons of birds and unfortunately skunks. The skunks do visit your campsite nightly, so cook early and keep the lights low.
The bathrooms were in good condition for a state park, although getting hot water is tricky. It is there, you just have to play with the shower controls to get it.
The water set up for the water only sites is weird, you don't always have water. This means you have to go meet other campers, not so bad.
Skyline drive is great for looking out over the Limpia Canyon and stargazing. We hiked from the trail by our campsite around to the Lodge, a really great hike and view. Drive or bike the scenic loop outside the park for great animal watching and views.
The Black Bear Restuarant is great for breakfast and very reasonable. The staff at the camp office, Indian Lodge shop and the Black Bear are very friendly, some of the best we have met. We will make the long drive from Austin back!
One of the prettiest parks we've been in. It's a little bit of Colorado meets Texas
feel. Beautiful views and so peaceful. Recommend staying at the Indian Lodge. The
staff was great and with a restaurant on site you can't beat it. Also recommend the McDonald Observitory for a breath taking view of all those stars. We got to see
Holmes Comet up close....Wow. Tons of wildlife...Mule Deer, Prong Horn, fox, turkey, javelina.... Wish we could have seen a bear or mountain lion... Great Time!
This one of the most beautiful parks in Texas and the country. It is ashame that about 95% of Texas do not know this park exist and that there is that kind of scenery in Texas. Most folks thing that everything out there is like what they see on I10 or what they hear about Big Bend and Presido - HOT!. Will be back there next month. Worth every mile from Galveston.
