Huy and I are taking a week of vacation and heading west to camp in and around the Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, TX. We will spend one night at San Angelo SP going out and one night at Lake Brownwood SP coming home. Otherwise we plan to camp Davis Mountains & Balmorhea SP and then take day trips to Marfa, Alpine and Big Bend NP. We had hoped to camp a couple of nights at Big Bend, but they are down to one campground at the moment and don't take reservations so we would hate to pull our Casita out there only to find that there is no room at the inn.
So, does anyone familiar with the area have a recommendation for two nights of camping in the area? Big Bend SP looks to be all boon-docking, which is an option for us, but anticipate it being hot so would prefer electricity so we can run the AC at night. Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Golf Resort is another option would hate to be lined up one trailer after another baking in the Texas summer sun. It looks very nice, but we've learned from a bad experience with an RV Park that pictures can be VERY deceiving.
Anyway, any recommendations on camping in the Big Bend/Fort Davis areas would be greatly appreciated. If push comes to shove, we can always extend our stay at Davis Mountains and Balmorhea SP but would prefer to be adventuresome. So what say you westward wanders? Any advice?
