Bakers Crossing is named for a pioneer that settled on that site at the "second crossing of Devils River" by the San Antonio-El Paso Road located at that place. Texas State Highway 163 now crosses the river on a bridge slightly to the west of the original crossing and the site of the earlier highway bridge. Camp Hudson, later Fort Hudson was located nearby to the south on the opposite bank near the mouth of Hudson Canyon and Huffstutler Springs.
