High in the mountains of West Texas you will find a beautiful and historic park. Explore Davis Mountains State Park's miles of trails, stay up late to marvel at the night sky, learn about the history of the park and nearby frontier fort. It's worth the drive!

Davis Mountains State Park offers a unique and remote destination for all sorts of adventures. Here you can hike, backpack, mountain bike or ride your own horse, take a scenic drive through the mountains, go camping, stargaze, geocache and study nature.

Stay at one of our campsites or at Indian Lodge, a historic 39-room motel in the park, which has a restaurant, swimming pool (for Lodge guests only) and meeting rooms. Rent our group picnic area for your next gathering.

Watch birds at the "best little bird blind in Texas." The blind offers an enclosed viewing station, a shielded outside patio, and watering and feeding stations. Or stop by the interpretive center to see what is visiting the bird feeding and watering station there.

Hike or mountain bike our trails. The 4.5-mile Skyline Drive Trail meanders up and down mountain ridges and valleys. The 1.75-mile CCC trail connects with a trail to the Fort Davis National Historic Site.

Bring your horse for the day or for an overnight stay at Limpia Canyon Primitive Area. The 11 miles of trails take riders from 4,900 feet high at Limpia Creek to over 5,700 feet high at a scenic overlook. Cross rugged terrain and enjoy views of the Davis Mountains. To camp, choose from one of six equestrian or six primitive campsites in this area. Non-potable water is available at the staging area and at the high point in the trail.
