The park is close to Marfa and a very convenient location just outside the town, close to the road (good and bad). Close to the train but what isn’t in Marfa. The train only comes through a few times a day and was not an issue for us.
We arrived to find our name on the board and information about check in. Our assigned site was #6, a horrible site that really only had grass behind the hookups so you would always be walking around the trailer to get to the grass area. We called and texted the two numbers available and then moved to a spot that was not reserved (#4) which had a small tree and a very old and damaged picnic table which cost us an extra $20 (worth it but really for a tree and a bad table).
The surrounding sites did not have much shade and only a few had trees and I don’t remember seeing any other tables. Lots of ants everywhere but I i am not sure if anything could be done about that.
The bathrooms were very clean and functioned properly. The washer and dryer were a nice addition and asked only for $3 for using them which was reasonable. The kitchen area really needs some cleanup, looked like no one had used it or cleaned it in months, dishes in the kink and piled in the drainer, kind of a mess all over. The common fire pit was grown over with weeds and not very inviting.
This place could be so much more with a little TLC and cleaning.
Tumble In is conveniently located on the out skirts of Marfa, TX. It is walking distance to the town and near the highway. You are right in the middle of both so the star gazing is amazing!
You are driving distance for the McDonnell Observatory and several other fun places to go and see. The camping sites are gravel and have water and electric hook ups. There is a covered community kitchen and washer/dryer. It has a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. If you stay up late enough you might even be able to see the strange Marfa lights!
Highly recommend staying here! My boyfriend and I love this place and will always go back and stay there.
