Rest, relaxation, good food, swimming, mountain biking and hiking are among the activities the Lodge has to offer. The Lodge is located within the boundaries of Davis Mountains State Park and guests have full use of the recreation and educational activities available at the park. There are foot trails into the mountains that cross Davis Mountains State Park and a scenic trail to the Fort Davis National Historic Site.

If you plan to swim at the park, read through our swimming safety tips before you come.

Ranger Programs

The Davis Mountains State Park interpretive center overlooks the wildlife watering station; scrub jays, white-wing doves, curve-billed thrashers, and rock squirrels are among the most common wildlife seen.
