2 Parks near Marathon, Texas
Jan 2017 - $20.00
We stayed here a week. Great park for star gazing as it offers amazing views of the night sky. The park isn't very big w/ only 19 sites, but it does have good WiFi & cable TV. Clean restrooms.
The park has spots where you can get out your own telescope w/ power & shade cloth to prevent stray light intrusion. We would definitely stay here again. - Tinisu

Positives for Marathon RV Park are that you can walk to town (coffee shop, breakfast restaurant, dinner restaurant, library, grocery), beautiful sunsets and mountain views, friendly people, Inner courtyard and outdoor cafe space to sit away from the camper occasionally. If you are a train lover, as I am, you will love this place, because the trains come through about four or five times a day, right across the road (and at night, too. I loved it but I heard some people needed ear plugs, which they provide at the office.)
Challenges: Wifi was not great. I needed it for work and ended up blowing through my cell data that week. Laundry machines were out of order the whole week.
Disappointments: There was no activity at all re: stargazing, and no fires at night in the courtyard. We had been looking forward to that after reading other reviews. It was pretty quiet.
Overall, a good value, a good location, especially if you want to go to Big Bend. - janjshaw

We stopped here on the way back from Big Bend. I didn't expect much in this town. In other areas of the state, I would rate this lower. In this area it had exactly what we wanted. I could pull through the site without issue. I didn't test wifi. We walked into town and ate dinner at surprisingly upscale restaurant. Only complaint would be the sewer. It was at the front of the trailer. I had to run 30' to get to it. - mf01
