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. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are lots of things to see just up the road: the town of Fort Davis, a National Monument fort, an observatory and a gorgeous state park are just a few miles up the road, and there are several scenic drives you can take. Depending on the time of year, Prude Ranch offers horseback rides and dinner or breakfast, and a pool.

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. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is not an RV park, but is a working Dude Ranch that has a number of RV hookups available. It's quiet, scenic and the staff is friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi is weak, but you can sit in the office and get a good signal 24/7 if you need it. We were there in a slow time of the year and had the whole place to ourselves. Bathrooms were tired and spartan, but clean and well supplied. Easy to get to town, the MacDonald observatory, the historic Fort Davis, the beautiful State Park and other locations. Would stay here again without question. PPA rate one night only, We camped at Prude Ranch in a Motorhome.

Restrooms and showers were not so clean. Sites are narrow, way too close together. Wifi available at office sometimes. I was told they had 50 amp sites only to arrive and find only 30 amps. They mainly cater to those seeking a Dude Ranch experience. This was a quiet park because this is their off-season. It is centerally located between the beautiful little town of Fort Davis and the Mc Donald Observatory. It is also close to Davis Mountains State Park, and Alpine and Marfa,TX. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice place to stay while touring the Davis Mountains. This is a working ranch so there may be some ranch odors, if the wind is in your direction. The swimming pool is covered and very nice. I did need to come to the office for the wifi, but I could work in the office area any time of day. The staff is friendly and helpful. No meals were available because they didn't have that many peple staying on the ranch at the time we were here. I will stay again when I'm in the area. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for Spring Break. Unlike the previous poster, we NEVER smelled horses. Even with some in the corral 30 yards away. The sites are dirt, so there's some dust. But this is WEST TEXAS, folks. That's all there is. Unless you WANT a concrete RV park. Very friendly people. The weekly rate is only $110 (we got it even though we were staying 8 nights). They just said 'oh, that's OK.' There are scheduled hay rides, trail rides, you can eat at their all-you-can-eat buffet 3 times a day if you want. They give you a schedule when you check in. For Spring Break they served meals all week long. I don't know if they do that all the time though. Pool is BARELY heated, but it's in a greenhouse-type enclosure so if the sun's out, it's plenty HOT in there to swim. The kiddos enjoy it! Bathrooms at the pool house were kind of dirty, but those are the ones John Q. Public uses so they get a LOT of traffic. The baths/showers up on the hill are MUCH nicer. There are pull-through sites right at the entrance, and a few back-in sites up the hill by the cabins. We stayed in the pull-through sites. Bottom line: if you WANT an RV park, there are some in town. If you WANT a different experience with friendly Texas folk, and like horses (or just want to ride, or chill out), this is the place. We enjoyed it and would stay again. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Tent Trailer.

The sites are very crowded; the guy in the RV next to us put out his awning and it almost touched our slide-out. Sites are all dirt and there's lots of dust. There are millions of flies due to the close proximity of horses and their by-products. The swimming pool is indoor and seemed clean. The dressing rooms for the swimming pool were fair. We would never camp there again due to the dirt, small spaces and flies. We camped at Prude Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.
