Mountain Trails Lodge was built in the 1930s as a drive-up motor court. It operated as a tourist court and restaurant through the 30s, 40s, and 50s. It has changed hands and been updated and renovated over the years. Most recently, it has housed Mountain Trails Lodge & Outdoor Learning Center and Come & Take It BBQ, leading educational tours and feeding groups delicious homemade meals in the historic dining room. Campers have access to a bathroom with shower that was part of one of the original motor court rooms, as well as a sunroom that was added on sometime mid last century.

Tent Camp at Historic Lodge
Preserving West Texas History
I am such a fan of communities such as this, with the added bonus of the historical building on site. I felt very safe the whole time I was here, and as a solo traveler this is very important to me. The community center was a beautiful and well maintained building with a bathroom and hot shower, located just next to the campsite. They have a large selection of games and books about the area inside. The road on site was easy to navigate. A quick note, while driving in from the east, I did lose cell service until about 20 minutes from Ft. Davis, but had strong service once I got into town. I was able to pitch my tent very close to the parking area and was comfortable all night. All in all, this was a great stop on my road trip and I highly recommend it.

This cabin was perfect for our needs. Dark skies, great for stargazing, and the host is extremely friendly. Thank you for a great stay!

Jenny was a fantastic host! So hospitable, she made our trip even better than we hoped! Me and my friends were in a bind trying to find a spot to camp in near Marfa and were pleasantly surprised to find Jenny’s place. Got a warm shower and a good night sleep and even got to stargaze. Would definitely stay again!

This was a perfect mix of the fun of tent camping with amenities to keep things from getting stressful! Sunroom full of beautiful flowers, the office off the sunroom had a wonderful selection of books and games, and the patio with grills and a refrigerator meant I could keep my coleman and icebox in the car and not worry about lugging it around! The campground faces a gorgeous mountain, the whole tent area feels like you are camping in a desert themed botanical garden, and though we only stayed one night we saw 3 hummingbirds! Will definitely return and for a much longer visit next time!
