Overview

Indian Lodge is a unique inn located in Jeff Davis County northwest of Fort Davis within the bounds of Davis Mountains State Park. Built in the 1930s, it was opened to the public in 1939. 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.

Rest, relaxation, good food, swimming, mountain biking and hiking are among the activities the Lodge has to offer. There are foot-trails into the mountains that cross Davis Mountains State Park and a scenic trail to the Fort Davis National Historic Site. A swimming pool is available for registered Lodge guests.
