We went in early June. Not too many people there. It's their down time. Their season is from October to May.
If you get to Fort Davis, do plan on the visit to the Fort Davis Historical Landmark and be sure to visit the McDonald Observatory!! The Star Watching Party is only available three nights a week!! Watch the schedule and book early!!
Also, if you have picky eaters, not much to choose from as far as restaurants go. Closest McDonalds is in Alpine, TX!!
Lajitas (20 miles from Big Bend NP) has a pretty cool General Store. They have groceries and whatnot.
Have a safe trip!!
