Indian Lodge

Rustic Charm, Modern Comfort

With its white adobe walls, historic aura, and refreshing pool, Indian Lodge is a welcome oasis in West Texas. Explore the natural beauty of the Davis Mountains by day, and relax in your comfortable room by night.

Things to Do

Indian Lodge is a full-service hotel set in Davis Mountains State Park. Make the lodge part of your big adventure or your vacation destination. Host a family reunion or business retreat in our meeting room.

Stay in our historic hotel with 39 rooms and a meeting room.

Swim at the pool while enjoying the mountain view. If you plan to swim, please read our swimming safety tips before you come.

Eat at the Black Bear Restaurant, which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday, year-round. (Renovation of the Black Bear Restaurant will begin in March 2016. The restaurant will be closed for about a year.)

Junior Ranger Program: Ask at the Interpretive Center about becoming a Junior Ranger! Borrow an Explorer Pack, packed with tools for looking at nature up close and personal. Pick up a free Activity Journal and complete a certain number of activities to earn a badge.

Civilian Conservation Corps: Men of the CCC molded adobe blocks to form the walls of Indian Lodge. They used locally harvested materials for the finishing interior touches. CCC workers in Bastrop built the lodge’s furniture. Learn more about the CCC’s work here and around the state:
