9 Parks near Marfa, Texas
Jun 2011 - $28.00
We stopped over at this park after the park on the other side of town because it has great views, too. Maybe even better because they are unrestricted. And because you can't see town, you feel like you are out there. But that's about all we can recommend. It's a big white gravel parking lot and the long term-ers run the place and stare at you all the time. It creeped my wife out. The spots are right on top of each other, too, so there's no getting away really. The ones down the hill are better if you want to stay there. - newrvman

This was our second time to stay here. All electric has been updated and is in very good condition. Full hookups with cable TV. Beautiful views of Chinati Peak and the Davis Mountains. There are 8 new pull-through spaces that have more room between them than the original 8, which is better for us since we have multiple slide-outs. Not a resort and few frills, but solid for the money. It fits the Marfa theme. Best sunset I've seen in a while, too. - raderred

This is a basic, but solid RV park. It has all hookups, but no bathrooms or showers. If Marfa is your destination or you're looking for a jump-off point for the western side of Big Bend State Park, this is a good option. - jalexanderj

Cute. Not much here. The grounds were well kept. They are planting trees and the wildflowers were great. The park isn't very big. It added to the quaint factor. There were washer dryer and a covered table area. Close to Marfa Lights viewing area. Ok for one night. Have to appreciate artsy vibe of Marfa. Staff very nice. - cmiller

This little park has a good vibe. Its a simple park with simple amenities. Wi-Fi was very strong at our site. The wind was blowing strong so we flew a kite. The train came through several times but wasn't annoying. We stayed one night to see the ghost lights and we saw the ghost lights, mission accomplished. One negative point was the cute Tumble In sign coming back from the Marfa viewing center was out so we almost missed the entrance to the park in the dark, and it is extremely dark out there. Overall, pleasant experience. I would stay again. - Fulsom Family

You get what you pay for here, and you don't pay much. There are only a few freshly planted trees, but no shade or wind breaks -- and the wind while we were here, blew constantly. The bathrooms are nothing fancy, but they are clean. There is only one shower for each gender. At our site near the far end of the "park," wifi was slow at 0.15 mbs. It's a self-serve facility, but we found our names on a white board with a site assigned, so that worked out well. For our one night stay, the site was nothing fancy but proved to be satisfactory for our needs. - Harry Whiteleggs

This campground was a great place to stay while exploring Fort Davis. The camphost was friendly and helpful, and takes your money after you get set up. (Cash or check only). The sites were long and level, and each site had a covered picnic table. Utilities worked as they should, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. Fort Davis (the fort itself) is an interesting visit, and the observatory is a must see. We also enjoyed lunch and ice cream at the hotel/drugstore in town. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - henny38

Access is excellent with gravel roads and sites. The sewer connection had been sawed off with a PVC cap and there were no threads. Good grouping of utilities. There is a nice concrete patio with picnic table and lattice cover. The water valve leaked, but the water pressure was at least 50 psi. The host camper is what I'd call a "character." Friendly and helpful, but opinionated. Lots of dust and wind, but hey, this is West Texas. - Good Vibes

Wide open, big pull-thru sites with covered patio, picnic table & BBQ grill. Very helpful by phone with directions locating the park because GPS address doesn't get you far enough to get the park! Cash or check only. - monamonaco

We spent one night here, but could have lingered if time had permitted. We left 100 degrees in central Texas and stepped into the low 80's later that same day. What a difference a few hours and higher elevation makes. This park is open with few trees as is the general landscape. There is a very nice motel/lodge with a swimming pool and restaurant - we did not eat nor swim here. If you like looking at the stars at night, this would be a great place to do that. Sites are asphalt, some have sewer, but #53 had 30 amp and water. No problem for one night for sure. The grounds are well kept and patrolled. There is no and when I say no, I mean none, nada cell or wifi coverage in the park. There is outstanding cell and wifi at the lookout located at the top of Skyline Drive. The view from there is beautiful. We would most definitely stay here again and longer. - the Fishers

We had a nice site, with a great view. There are scenic drives, and we were there for the Independence Day celebration, which was quite busy. The town is really interesting - we thoroughly enjoyed the Skyline Drive in the park, and visited the Indian Lodge State Park, which is inside Davis Mountains SP. - Chiango

This is a real experience, almost a throw-back to the 1940's travel park. The owner is reclusive, but once met, is OK.
Let me explain: I did not have a reservation (and the sites were virtually empty, as this place almost appears abandoned.) I rang the doorbell at the screen-door: no answer. Tried again. No answer. Spoke loudly thru the screen (in case mgr was in back room) and almost beside me, sitting in the dark, a loud response "I'm sitting right HERE!"
I asked if there was a campsite avail, and he asked what kind of RV, and how long. I said, "22' Airstream" and he said "HOW LONG?"
Oh, I said, "Two days."
It'll be $24/day! When I was allowed to enter the darkness, I saw from a picture he was a former C130 loadmaster. When I asked about his AF Service: he warmed right up and became sociable.
After that, it was a pleasant stay in a quiet, grassy, small camp. I was so amused by the quaintness. I will stay here next time also. No other campers in this busy time of year. Right in the little downtown area. Good elect/water/sewer, but that's about it.
This place is much more solitary than the crowded state park. I liked it very much. - ghorn

We stayed here Memorial weekend. The owner was very nice and I enjoyed our conversation on multiple subjects. He recommended places to eat and visit. The park is clean and neat. The other reviews I read were not good, but I didn't see why they were so bad. The campground is downtown. Walking distance to the drugstore and other sites. We had a very pleasant stay and will stay here again when we come back to this area. Sites were clean, easy to hook up, all utilities work properly. Roads are easy to navigate. - Bobby Cree

Entire park needs work. Bathrooms are in terrible shape and do not appear to be regularly cleaned. Noisy at late hours. Strange place. I do not recommend even for 1 night stays. The park is falling apart. - lukqbwr4

Staff was friendly and courteous. The setting is nice and scenic. There is only 30 RV sites (not 40) and most are not level. All are dirt and/or gravel. The first site they put me in was so unlevel that my front wheels were over 9 inches off the ground when I got level and the bottom step was almost 2 feet off the ground. Only 3 sites are 50 amp, the rest are 30 amp. The sewer hookups are mostly between 8-10 inches above ground level. Water pressure was good. Power and water pedestals look like they came from the Dark Ages. Appears that all work to improve the RV sites has stopped some time ago. They DO NOT take reservations. Not sure about Restrooms or Showers. If there are any they would be in the office or the cabins. Most sites are back-ins, others they classify as pull-thrus are actually where you "pull-thru" into a pasture and pecan grove to turn around. I will not return. - Camper71-2004

The state park nearby was full, so when I saw Prude Ranch listed on this site, we decided to try it since we had previous experience here in regular cabins. This is NOT a full-service park, although they had full hookups. The facilities, like hookups, showers and bathrooms, are somewhat dated, and the sewer hookups weren't working when we were here. The sites are next to a rodeo arena in a grassy field. But the service was good and the surroundings beautiful. It was just what we needed for our two-night stay. - SnoopyTXfan

Well worth the drive past Davis mountain state park. Full hook ups! Use your own facilities. It is not perfect but a work in progress. The people make this a special visit. Did a 1 hr ride which was well guided and so worth the $. Will definitely make this an annual stop. Beautiful peaceful area. - sinnibar

Most of the sites are long term residents. The foliage really needs work: we scraped badly going in and I insisted on doing some serious pruning to get out without doing worse. Sites are gravel, not overly large, but ok for a few nights. 10 cable channels (no PBS), no OTA reception. Good showers with lots of hot water; laundry looked ok but we didn't use it. Be careful dog walking, lots of stickers. - bobcovey

This is a typical desert park setting, gravel drives and sites. We had an end site and a beautiful view. The office staff is friendly and accommodating. We stayed here while passing through to view the Marfa lights. The hookups worked well as well as the wifi. No frills park but we usually don't use the amenities anyway. Great value for what you get. Would stay here again. - Randoni

This is a small RV park with no frills, but they have wifi and cable included in the price. The lady in the office means business! She is adorable! We loved our site on the end. It had a nice view. We would stay here again. Great value! There is a much larger park down the road for almost twice the money, but we don't use the restrooms and pool. - The Griffins

As others have suggested, this is probably the nicest RV park in Alpine. That being said, since my last visit 2 years ago, the park now has many permanent workers staying there. This creates a more "crowded" feel, as many sites have 2-3 vehicles in addition to the RV. Office staff was very pleasant. Rain during my stay made the gravel site and its surroundings a bit muddy. - Phaeton40AH

The campground is very nice, the roads and sides are gravel but not dusty.
The sides have grass on each side, the premium sides have also a concrete patio.
A lot of workers stay permanent at the campground but this is not a issue.
The wifi is (as on almost every campground) not worth to connect the computer to it, we used our smartphone as a hot spot, the AT&T signal was with 3 bars LTE very strong. - Columbus

This is a nice park. The park is clean, sites are large enough, and it is easy to navigate. Alpine is an interesting town to check out. - Chiango

The WiFi is the best service we've found, second to none. No amenities to speak of but we park, connect, and only use the park as a base. Great cable, more than we needed. Great shade for each site, good feature in the high desert. Spaces require backing in but huge room to maneuver. Utilities were in the right place and no issues with them. Not many sites and the bathrooms/showers/laundry were minimal but clean and functional. The rate seemed a little high compared to others in the area but nice to have 24 hour service at the front desk. Gorgeous baby girl in a walker helping at check in. - Old Geezer

Checked into our spot early (no extra charge). We had 12 people together, 5+ dog in TT and the rest in rooms. The staff let us have a spot up front by the motel so we could all be close. That was nice! Our hookups were easy to get to. Cable connection didn't work on my box, the neighboring space did. It's an okay place to stay if the state park is full. - jpstudio02

We stayed here for a night while visiting Fort Davis National Historic Monument. There are two sites in the front of the hotel which would accommodate smaller RVs. However , there are several near the back which face the mountain with large trees for shade. Not the fanciest park with amenities, but it was adequate for our short stay. - jennifernelson49
