8 Parks near Fort Davis, Texas
Apr 2016 - $30.00
This campground was a great place to stay while exploring Fort Davis. The camphost was friendly and helpful, and takes your money after you get set up. (Cash or check only). The sites were long and level, and each site had a covered picnic table. Utilities worked as they should, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. Fort Davis (the fort itself) is an interesting visit, and the observatory is a must see. We also enjoyed lunch and ice cream at the hotel/drugstore in town. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - henny38

Access is excellent with gravel roads and sites. The sewer connection had been sawed off with a PVC cap and there were no threads. Good grouping of utilities. There is a nice concrete patio with picnic table and lattice cover. The water valve leaked, but the water pressure was at least 50 psi. The host camper is what I'd call a "character." Friendly and helpful, but opinionated. Lots of dust and wind, but hey, this is West Texas. - Good Vibes

Wide open, big pull-thru sites with covered patio, picnic table & BBQ grill. Very helpful by phone with directions locating the park because GPS address doesn't get you far enough to get the park! Cash or check only. - monamonaco

This is a real experience, almost a throw-back to the 1940's travel park. The owner is reclusive, but once met, is OK.
Let me explain: I did not have a reservation (and the sites were virtually empty, as this place almost appears abandoned.) I rang the doorbell at the screen-door: no answer. Tried again. No answer. Spoke loudly thru the screen (in case mgr was in back room) and almost beside me, sitting in the dark, a loud response "I'm sitting right HERE!"
I asked if there was a campsite avail, and he asked what kind of RV, and how long. I said, "22' Airstream" and he said "HOW LONG?"
Oh, I said, "Two days."
It'll be $24/day! When I was allowed to enter the darkness, I saw from a picture he was a former C130 loadmaster. When I asked about his AF Service: he warmed right up and became sociable.
After that, it was a pleasant stay in a quiet, grassy, small camp. I was so amused by the quaintness. I will stay here next time also. No other campers in this busy time of year. Right in the little downtown area. Good elect/water/sewer, but that's about it.
This place is much more solitary than the crowded state park. I liked it very much. - ghorn

We stayed here Memorial weekend. The owner was very nice and I enjoyed our conversation on multiple subjects. He recommended places to eat and visit. The park is clean and neat. The other reviews I read were not good, but I didn't see why they were so bad. The campground is downtown. Walking distance to the drugstore and other sites. We had a very pleasant stay and will stay here again when we come back to this area. Sites were clean, easy to hook up, all utilities work properly. Roads are easy to navigate. - Bobby Cree

Entire park needs work. Bathrooms are in terrible shape and do not appear to be regularly cleaned. Noisy at late hours. Strange place. I do not recommend even for 1 night stays. The park is falling apart. - lukqbwr4

Staff was friendly and courteous. The setting is nice and scenic. There is only 30 RV sites (not 40) and most are not level. All are dirt and/or gravel. The first site they put me in was so unlevel that my front wheels were over 9 inches off the ground when I got level and the bottom step was almost 2 feet off the ground. Only 3 sites are 50 amp, the rest are 30 amp. The sewer hookups are mostly between 8-10 inches above ground level. Water pressure was good. Power and water pedestals look like they came from the Dark Ages. Appears that all work to improve the RV sites has stopped some time ago. They DO NOT take reservations. Not sure about Restrooms or Showers. If there are any they would be in the office or the cabins. Most sites are back-ins, others they classify as pull-thrus are actually where you "pull-thru" into a pasture and pecan grove to turn around. I will not return. - Camper71-2004

The state park nearby was full, so when I saw Prude Ranch listed on this site, we decided to try it since we had previous experience here in regular cabins. This is NOT a full-service park, although they had full hookups. The facilities, like hookups, showers and bathrooms, are somewhat dated, and the sewer hookups weren't working when we were here. The sites are next to a rodeo arena in a grassy field. But the service was good and the surroundings beautiful. It was just what we needed for our two-night stay. - SnoopyTXfan

Well worth the drive past Davis mountain state park. Full hook ups! Use your own facilities. It is not perfect but a work in progress. The people make this a special visit. Did a 1 hr ride which was well guided and so worth the $. Will definitely make this an annual stop. Beautiful peaceful area. - sinnibar

We spent one night here, but could have lingered if time had permitted. We left 100 degrees in central Texas and stepped into the low 80's later that same day. What a difference a few hours and higher elevation makes. This park is open with few trees as is the general landscape. There is a very nice motel/lodge with a swimming pool and restaurant - we did not eat nor swim here. If you like looking at the stars at night, this would be a great place to do that. Sites are asphalt, some have sewer, but #53 had 30 amp and water. No problem for one night for sure. The grounds are well kept and patrolled. There is no and when I say no, I mean none, nada cell or wifi coverage in the park. There is outstanding cell and wifi at the lookout located at the top of Skyline Drive. The view from there is beautiful. We would most definitely stay here again and longer. - the Fishers

We had a nice site, with a great view. There are scenic drives, and we were there for the Independence Day celebration, which was quite busy. The town is really interesting - we thoroughly enjoyed the Skyline Drive in the park, and visited the Indian Lodge State Park, which is inside Davis Mountains SP. - Chiango

This park is really nice. Very peaceful. Our sites had covered picnic tables. The staff was so friendly. Very clean. No WiFi or cell service. - cmiller

The WiFi is the best service we've found, second to none. No amenities to speak of but we park, connect, and only use the park as a base. Great cable, more than we needed. Great shade for each site, good feature in the high desert. Spaces require backing in but huge room to maneuver. Utilities were in the right place and no issues with them. Not many sites and the bathrooms/showers/laundry were minimal but clean and functional. The rate seemed a little high compared to others in the area but nice to have 24 hour service at the front desk. Gorgeous baby girl in a walker helping at check in. - Old Geezer

Checked into our spot early (no extra charge). We had 12 people together, 5+ dog in TT and the rest in rooms. The staff let us have a spot up front by the motel so we could all be close. That was nice! Our hookups were easy to get to. Cable connection didn't work on my box, the neighboring space did. It's an okay place to stay if the state park is full. - jpstudio02

We stayed here for a night while visiting Fort Davis National Historic Monument. There are two sites in the front of the hotel which would accommodate smaller RVs. However , there are several near the back which face the mountain with large trees for shade. Not the fanciest park with amenities, but it was adequate for our short stay. - jennifernelson49

This is a lovely, destination park for us. It is clean, quiet and built to ward off the sometimes intense heat of a high desert - with shaded picnic areas, adobe walled bathrooms and that lovely, lovely San Solomon Spring - fed swimming pool (built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's.) We have a Texas State Parks pass and love the engaging towns of Marfa, Fort Davis, Alpine and usually take a day trip to the McDonald Observatory. On weekends the pool is very popular with families and scuba diving classes but we enjoy being a part of that. Most of them are gone by 10 a.m. Monday, leaving us with roadrunners, rabbits, nice park rangers and sweet maintenance folks. As other reviewers noted: this region can get rain and cold. Many of the sites have cable TV at the site and Verizon cell phones and hot spots work well here - even in the rain. Whenever we have checked, the bathrooms were clean. Once we noticed that the 50 amp receptacle on a neighboring site was broken, mentioned it to the office and two young people came out and fixed it within an hour...and came over to show us how to hook up our cable box. :) We have experienced low water pressure but no litter or poor maintenance. - Mom_of_Two

Stayed here for one night at the end of a long road trip in order for the kids to enjoy the springs. Unfortunately, it was during monsoon season and the park had had a few days of rain prior to our visit. The campgrounds are very poorly drained - a good number of sites were completely flooded out, our picnic table was an island and our tow vehicle was parked in 6" of standing water. The tent campers were mixed in with RVers, and with the flooded roads, a lot of folks had to cut through RV sites just to access the restrooms. We attempted to use the restrooms but they always seemed to be closed for repairs. Electric and water at the site were fine, and the dump station had easy access. Pull through site was level and a good size, we did not have to unhook our tow vehicle. Overall, it's a great park to access the springs - I just feel it wasn't up to par with other Texas state parks we've camped at. - wookiemouse

We stayed here specifically to swim in the spring fed pool. Stayed two nights. No great value, you pay the nightly rate plus and entry fee each day of $7 per person. As a state park the grounds had litter on it, the guests did not pick up after themselves and the staff was not sufficient to deal with grounds upkeep. Again we came here specifically for the water and it was most enjoyable in the Texas heat. We would stay again for this reason. Then move on down the road. - jromo

This was a unique find!! We wanted to get into the Balmorhea State Park but they were full and suggested that we try Laird Ranch. This campground has one 50/30 AMP level site with water and sewer and then offer camping for two units with 110 volt needs and ample tent camping at $10 per night. They have a very clean restroom. We don't believe that many have discovered this spot. We camped and were all by ourselves on 5 acres. Beautiful view of the mountains. You need to call the Laird's to gain access to the campground. Nice folks that own it. I believe that the campground is a hobby. Would be a nice place for a family reunion, has a shade area with picnic tables and fire rings. Just one full hook up though. - spiceblender

There are over 30 spaces here. Super convenient to Interstate 10. All spaces are pull thru. Full hookups. Some lots have trees if you want them. Many don't. We were directed to space 16 together pay for our spot. Park is on the south side of Interstate 10 and is just a few yards west of the gas station. Super easy pull thru. Do not see any TV hookup. Zero local channels. Worth driving west past Fort Stockton to save money. - Ahrmless

There is an older section in front with smaller spaces and cactus landscaping between. We stayed in the new, back section, which is basically a gravel parking lot with large, long spaces, with full hook-ups, including 50amp, that allow for an easy in-transit overnight along I-10 in west Texas. The only other services at this exit are a Vallero station with separate truck pumps, and local bar/steak place which we did not try. - barbielab
