Texas Hwy TX 17. This is a nice picnic area pulloff just outside of Davis Mtns. There is a bit of traffic on TX 17, and you are VERY close to the highway. Not for light sleepers. Texas allows overnight stays (36 hours if memory serves), but no "structures" are allowed (tents?). Of course, many of their picnic/rest areas have no toilets and this one was no exception. Accessible to most vehicle types. NOTE: This is a local party spot. The area is trashed. When we stayed there, three trucks pulled up and were apprently upset that we had parked in "their" party spot, honking their horns as they drove off.
