Tumble In Marfa RV Park
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We parked our Airstream Interstate at the Tumble In for the month of April. We loved it! The Tumble In has no doubt the best bath house of any RV park in West Texas, and an awesome Wi-Fi antenna (streaming Netflix is no problem). It's close enough to Marfa to walk or bike anytime. And every space is perfectly level and flat, all with full hookups.

But did I mention this is in West Texas? The Tumble In also comes with a bit of wind (keep an eye on that awning) and goatheads, a little sticker that is remarkably efficient at flattening bike tires (the nearest bike shop will guarantee their fix for 6 months, but it's in Alpine, 25 miles away). These are acts of nature, and there's nothing the Tumble In can do about them.

Don't let the lack of mature trees or the self-checkin system deter you: this new park is the place RVers and campers stay when in Marfa. And owners Cory and Jenny Lyn couldn't be nicer. We'll be back anytime we're in the neighborhood.

We stayed here on our way to Big Bend. It was a perfect place to stay while we checked out Marfa (we'd heard so much about it!). The sites were tidy with new hook-ups and cute solar lights that came on at night. The park wasn't crowded, and we had lots of room to spread out. We enjoyed the peaceful quiet, the beautiful sunset and the stars all night long. Very accessible for our large rig with easy to pull-in their large pull-through sites. It's not fancy, but it fits with the feel of that part of Texas, simple and stress free. We will be back soon, I hope!

We stopped through and stayed at this new RV Park on a whim because the sign was really cool (old vintage neon sign with little tumbleweeds going across it) and the sites looked spacious and new. We loved it. Incredible unrestricted views on one side for miles and miles (towards Paisano Pass) and views of Marfa on the other side. It's only a few hundred yards from town -- we rode our bikes -- but it's really quiet, too. It rained and we hung out in a big green shed and watched a double rainbow (!) over the plain right when a mile-long double decker train came by at the end of the field behind us and you could see the whole thing stretching back around the bend. The owners were really nice and helpful and excited about their new little park and we can see why. Cool!
