Javelina Roundup


Art by Verna Kropp
Come join other Casita and MFGRV owners for a fun informal gathering at beautiful Davis Mountains State Park, just 2 miles west of Fort Davis, Texas. The Javelina Roundup will be held from Saturday, September 30th through Sunday, October 8, 2017. 

This years theme is 'Bright Skies - Camp'n with the Javelinas'.  Please feel free to arrive early (as long as you have camping reservations with the park). This is our 8th roundup!  Since the park fills up during this gathering, it is good to get your reservations made with the park system as well in advance as you can (And don't forget to purchase a park pass to avoid the entrance fees each day.  

Several events will be planned; however, most of the activities will be spontaneous roundups or gatherings, as is the past tradition of our Javelina Roundups. We will have coffee in the mornings as well as evening campfires (if permitted by the park), and a lot of great food and drink at our spontaneous "roundups".   Many folks love going to the MacDonald Observatory during the day - or for  a Star Party on Saturday or Tuesday nights.  Or to the Fort Davis National Historic Site.  There is lots to do and see around Fort Davis, Marfa and Alpine!!

We will have a day trip to Alpine to the Museum of the Big Bend at Sul Ross State University and lunch at La Casita in Alpine.  (The museum is great and best of all it is free!!)  

Plan on 'Soup night', where the Greg and Jerry with the Lucky Dog Band will perform!  Plan also on a pot luck, and our famous Pancake Breakfast!   A white board will be available to show 'what's happening next' - and you can have input on what we do!!

This is a very informal gathering (not a rally) and you will have a lot of time to relax, meet other campers, hike, birdwatch, geocache, etc.

Davis Mountains State Park has a lot of wildlife including our beloved javelinas, deer and many species of birds.  The weather in the mountains of west Texas can change quickly, but they usually have mild days and cool nights in early October( 55 - 80 degrees).  The park has beautiful tree shaded sites with water, electric, sewer and cable tv hookups or water and electric sites.  The park is famous for it's miles of hiking trails and geocaches. As already mentioned, one of the most popular activities is star gazing either in the park or at the MacDonald Observatory.
