Davis Mountains State Park Professional Review and Guide
"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., whose stone work remains intact and symbolizes workers grateful for even back-breaking employment during The Great Depression. One of the best examples is the Indian Lodge, completed in 1935."
