Views of Indian Lodge

One of the most beloved places in our region, Indian Lodge in Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis.  It is in fine shape, having survived area wildfires due to the work of park officials and fire fighters this spring. 
Open for business and ready for your visit, the historic section of the lodge was constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and features the original interiors and furnishings. In 1967, a major construction project was completed, including renovation of the original structure, which has eighteen-inch adobe walls, hand-carved cedar furniture, and ceilings of pine viga and latilla. It resembles a Southwestern Native-American-style, multilevel pueblo village. Indian Lodge was voted the #1 accommodation in Texas by readers of Texas Highways magazine in 1992.
Enjoy relaxing in this lovely spot after hiking in the park, or take a dip in the mountainside pool!  Make your reservations in advance, for the Lodge is often full!
