This is Passport to Texas State Park Getaway
Built by in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Indian Lodge located within Davis Mountains SP, is a truly special place. Recently renovated and updated, Indian Lodge makes a great Getaway. Bryan Frazier has details.
So, you have the best of both worlds: the conveniences of the lodge, set in the Davis Mountains. So, you’re up about a mile high; hiking trails right outside your door of Indian Lodge. Skyline Drive that goes through the park. It has some hike and lookout points there. And you’re just outside the town of Fort Davis in Far West Texas; it’s just a fantastic place.
But as you’re looking toward the summer, you want to make a reservation at Indian Lodge, maybe even now, even if you’re not planning on staying there until later in the year. It’s become so popular with the renovations that they’re booking up quite a bit in advance. So, we really encourage people to make a reservation as early as they know their travel plans.
The national historic site in Fort Davis is located just below the park. There are great hikes through that—and it’s a fully restored frontier fort. There’s just a lot to do for a town the size of fort Davis. You know, if you’re a Texan, and you enjoy the outdoors, it’s a place I really encourage you to go and stay. I think it will be a really unforgettable trip.
