Fort Davis Texas State Park

Has anybody with a Class A DP stayed at Fort Davis State Park? We were out there last October (not in an RV) and really liked the area. We now have a 37' DP and would like to go back about the same time this year. One of my friends with a 40'DP said he thought the park might be difficult to navigate with a larger DP. I have downloaded a map of the park and it appears that the full service sites are pull through. When we were there last year I wasn't paying attention to the camping. I would appreciate any feedback from RV'ers who have stayed there. Especially those with longer DP's.

Thanks

We were there 3 years ago with friends with a 38' DP and a 37' 5er and we saw several other large rigs in there.

I have the same question as wimberleyman as we're headed to Davis Mountains State Park (it's not Fort Davis State Park, even though I keep calling it that too ) on Monday in a 37' fiver and I'm a little nervous given that state parks and larger rigs don't always mix. But there seem to be many reviews by big rigs that don't mention any particular problem so my fingers are crossed. We are pretty tall so if there's any issue it will probably be trees.

We've been there without any problems. The sites are pull-throughs parallel to the road - it's like pulling off onto the shoulder. Some of the sites aren't very level, but you're in the mountains.

No problem at in my mind. We stayed there with 40 footer plus toad last year. Depending on which site you get some are not quite level, but we were fine there. Pull throughs with full hookup are nice. If you're interested I've get a few pics of our rig in the park here

We had site 15 which was nice and spacious for us

I stay there several times a year. About half of the spots are large pull throughs and the others are back in of various size. They are all first come first served. This is a great park and I hope you enjoy your stay, lots to do in the area. Star parties at McDonald observatory, Big Bend Nat. park, and dont miss the huge cold spring lake/swimming pool at Balmorea SP. Depending on your route, you might go right past Balmorea. If you do, stop for a swim!!

As far as I can tell the full hookup (water/electric/sewer) are all pull-throughs and the water/electric-only sites are back-ins. Is that right?

That's what I remember. The pull-throughs should fit you fine.

We were there last Fall. The sites that were good for us are #1, 2, 21, 22, 24, 26. Some others are very unlevel and others have low tree branch problems.
