Davis Mountains State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Named after historic Ft. Davis, the Davis Mountains provide a perfect home for this state park and tent campers seeking relief from the heat and humidity of other Texas campgrounds. Located at more than 5,000 feet, the campground stretches along the mostly dry Keesey Creek and is sheltered by a mixture of mature pine, juniper, and oak trees as well as the neighboring volcanic peaks. This 2,700-acre park was developed between 1933 and 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corp.
Besides the mild climate of the Davis Mountains, the area also oﬀers the vistas of Skyline Drive, which is within the park and overlooks the town of Fort Davis and the Fort Davis National Historic Site—a must-see. This frontier fort has a large number of buildings that have been expertly restored. While camping at Davis Mountains State Park, be sure to attend a Star Party to see heavenly sights a city dweller can only imagine."
