I made a reservation with my needs as I am in a small camper with no facilities. I did not get what I asked for. I was lucky to get the last space available, any later and I would have had no camping spot. There was little to no effort to make amends for the inconvenience. The manager was gruff and belligerent. He will tell you what his job is and that is all you will get out of him. There are few picnic tables, they have limited cable but the picture is good and clear, the Wi-Fi was pretty stable, and the bathrooms appeared clean. That this is the most decent park in Fort Davis does not say much for the other parks. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

McDonald Observatory is 16 miles away and we came to Fort Davis to do their Twilight & Star Party Programs. $15/pp covers both and we loved both programs. Observatory is at 6800' with no lights nearby so moon/star viewing is awesome and we used 50x & 400x telescopes to view moon/Jupiter and star clusters.

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. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Davis Historical Site, McDonald Observatory and iconic Marfa are all close by and well worth the visit. We did the evening Twilight and Star Program at the observatory. They had 8 telescopes set up for star and planet viewing. Reservations can be made on-line.

It's worth pointing out that as far as I can tell this is as good or better than any other private RV park in the Fort Davis area. If you can't get into the state park (of if you have to have cell service), I don't think you'll do any better than this park in Fort Davis. Having said all of that, this park is nothing to get excited about. Gravel, dirt, and weeds are interspersed to the point that's it's hard to tell exactly what is a site and what is a yard. Each site does have a small patio with a picnic table, which is nice. The building with the bathrooms is in poor repair, but the bathrooms themselves are clean and adequate. The laundry facility is limited to just one washer and dryer. While we've been here no one has ever worked in the office. Campers have been checked in by the host who's customer service skills leave a little to be desired - nice enough guy, but sure likes to point out what you're doing wrong. In addition, we made a reservation over the phone / email and when we arrived were informed of the extra fees we'd be paying due to the size of our family (rates are based on 2 occupants only). If we're in the area again we may stay here, but only because there aren't many other good options. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There's so much to do within 1-2 hrs of Fort Davis: Davis Mountain State Park, Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, the MacDonald Observatory, Mt Livermore, Balmorhea State Park, the Marfa Lights, etc. Take your pick.

As others have said, not deluxe, not KOA, just a good basic campground. Nice big, level sites. Close to town, but not too close. Very quiet. Oddly enough there was no train. I thought all campgrounds were required to have a train. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Definitely see Fort Davis and the MacDonald Observatory. Several good restaurants in town.

This is one of those places where the beauty lies in the service, price, and location, rather than in how it looks, which is fairly basic. The casual atmosphere is very friendly. When we called ahead we were told to just come on down and find a spot we liked, set up, and someone will come by after a while. We did, and he did. We are in a 30-amp rig and the site only had 50-amp service, but the host gladly loaned us an adapter. Our site was level, showers and bathrooms clean. The location is convenient to town, but quiet, bordering on pastureland. As you drive south of town, look for the giant tin chicken that marks the entrance to camp. On the downside, the grass around camp seriously needed mowing to keep down the sandspurs, which were a nuisance; and some of the sewage inlets had only flat rocks balanced on them instead of actual caps. Note that payment here is cash or check only. Overall, though, we would stay here again. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Fort Davis national historic park, Davis Mountains State Park, and McDonald Observatory are all convenient to this campground (in Texas driving terms, of course.) Sol Ross University's Big Bend Museum in Alpine, about 30 minutes away, is worth the drive to see how a very small museum can do a good job of storytelling in a limited space. For a picnic and a swim in a big clear spring go to Balmorhea State Park, about 45 minutes away down Route 17; and enjoy some spectacular scenery on the way.

Pull through spots were easy to maneuver. Liked the small patio, even though I didn't get a chance to use it. Park manager was helpful getting set up. Super friendly guy with great stories. It would score a little better, but the goatheads were awful. Used the men's room once, and it was in order. Laundry had a working pair, other set down. Just outside of town far enough that the night sky is amazing. Internet was good, cable selection was okay (got the news and weather). We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here during an open weekend at Davis Mountains Preserve held by The Nature Conservancy. This RV Park is close to town, where we wanted to be, has easy pull through sites for even the biggest rigs, and has friendly and easy going management on site. Pets are welcome including a separate run for dogs, and the Wi-Fi is very good. Management even let us leave late (~3PM) on a Sunday so we could get in a hike before leaving the Fort Davis area. We will definitely be staying there again on future Fort Davis visits. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

They only accept cash or check, so leave the credit cards at home.

This park made a nice 1-night stopover for me, as my site was long enough to accommodate my motorhome and toad without disconnecting. There was plenty of maneuvering room to enter and exit my site. The restrooms are very clean and private. The on-site caretaker was very friendly, but be aware that the park only accepts cash or checks. Not much else in the way of amenities; however, the WiFi was very strong. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent two nights here as we visited the McDonald Observatory and explored Ft. Davis. This park was OK but frankly I would not stay here again if I had other options in Ft. Davis. The park was clean, and the campground host was helpful, but the campground office was never open and we never saw campground management. The men's room was out of order when we got there and one of the clothes washers was broken. Our visit left me wondering if the park was planning on closing soon. There were a lot of full-timers there; perhaps the park is staying open for them. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a decent spot for a night or two. Nice on-site guy in site #29 was helpful; he's who checked us in. Four bathrooms were self-contained with nice tiled showers, toilets, and sinks in each. Only one washer and one dryer were working (there were two of each in the laundry room) and we had lots to do, so that was a little frustrating. It was nice and quiet when we were there. Note this is cash only. All in all, this was a good spot and we would stay here again. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We had a surprisingly-fairly-gourmet dinner at Blue Mountain Bistro in town and would recommend it as a nice little place to eat.

Park does a good job of being comfortable and easy to use and as noted camp host is very nice. But it just looks tired. We were there in late February and weather was chilly. That is not a complaint, just remember you are in the highest town in Texas at 5,000+ ft above sea level. Sites and roads are gravel. Plenty of space to maneuver. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Blue Mountain Bistro is a good choice for dinner. The fort, Davis Mountain State Park, and McDonald Observatory are all great places to explore.

If your rig won't fit in the state park, this is the second best choice in Fort Davis. The campground host is fun and a great guy with tons of stories to tell you if you have the time. Quiet and dark park with no real amenities to speak of, but that's Fort Davis for you. It's cheap (cash only! No credit cards taken!) and friendly.

Only 1 washer and 1 dryer were operating when we were there. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Blue Mountain Bistro in town has great food and a nice patio if the weather is good!

Nice campground for a few days. We were here to visit MacDonald Observatory and Marfa "lights". Internet good. Cable good. 50A only so bring 50-30A pigtail. If necessary, camp manager in Site #29 will loan one,. Fuel before arriving, perhaps Pecos or Fort Stockton, if coming from the East. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a new owner/manager who is very friendly & helpful. The roads & sites are gravel. Each site is wired for 50 amp. If you have a 30 amp unit, the park will loan you a 50-30 amp adapter if you don't have one. The voltage was excellent & the Wi-Fi worked well. The bath house is very clean & contains 2 women & 2 men shower rooms. Each room also contains a lavatory & toilet. The laundry room was very clean. Most of the sites are pull-thru of sufficient length to stay hooked up to your trailer or toad. The few long term sites were very clean. The entire park appeared very neat & clean. The credit card machine was being repaired during our stay, so I paid by check. We will definitely return when in this area. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
