Van Horn and on to Davis Mountains State Park

Van Horn RV Park

After leaving Las Cruces we’ve arrived in Van Horn – a popular stop in our west Texas travels.  Last year we spent 2 nights at Mountain View RV Park and decided it was a bit too close to I-10 and the rail road tracks.  This year we’re back at the former KOA, this year a little drier and dustier with the drought that is continuing in west Texas.  We’re assigned site E7, a long back-in with full hookups.  Site E8 would be somewhat better, an end site with a small patch of almost green grass and a cactus garden.

After a quick overnight in Van Horn, we’re bound for Davis Mountains State Park, one of our favorite Texas State Parks.  Located just outside Ft. Davis, the park provides easy access to the historic fort and McDonald Observatory.  We’ll spend the next 3 nights at Davis Mountains where we’ll catch up with our good friends from Montrose, CO – who are on their way back to Colorado after spending about 7 weeks in Texas RV parks. More from the Davis Mountains of west Texas…
