Good news - the Indian Lodge has just completed an extensive remodeling project, after being completely closed for several months. It has just now reopened as of 15 June. The lodge has 8 rooms available for 9 August, but is still sold out on 10 and 11 August. We have several people in our group staying at the lodge, and others that are staying in the nearby towns of Fort Davis, Alpine and Marfa! So if you still need lodging, please checkout these towns.

New info as of 28 Feb
We have added a night to the trip. Now it's August 9,10, and 11. And we will have a pretrip party in March or April, date TBD.

New info as of 14 Feb
FYI, Some of the Protected content rooms have one bed, and some rooms have two beds. Also there are portable beds available for a small extra charge. Protected content has room descriptions and a site plan for the entire lodge. If you call the reservation number you can speak with a knowledgeable person about the lodge.
