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. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

We received a wealth of information about the area from the lady at the visitor center in town. The downtown area around Hotel Paisano is walkable and interesting.

I really wanted to love this little rv park. It looks like someone with a younger, hip sensibility recently set it up with a lot of enthusiasm and then ran out of money and/or interest. I was there for a week and the common building was a dirty mess the entire time, including the kitchenette with dirty pots and pans and filthy wash rags. The picnic table next to my rig was falling apart. There is an active railroad close by and the highway, so bring earplugs if that's an issue for you at night. There is no shade or windbreaks.

That said, my pull-thru site was nice and long, the night skies were very dark and beautiful, and it was great being so close to Marfa, which is a hidden gem of an old town in the middle of nowhere. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Marfa doesn't look like much when you drive through on the main highway, but it's a neat old town with lots of creative culture (mostly on the weekend) -- galleries, outdoor sculpture, interesting shops, great coffee and restaurants -- with a lot of quiet buildings and neighborhoods in-between. The nearby town of Alpine is neat, too -- lots of wonderful murals.

As posted before, this is a self-service type campground. It is not a RV park but a campground, and a run down one at that. The backin sites are short and there is no room to park your tow vehicle, the pull throughs are long but closely spaced. The utilities are placed on the rear third of the site. Roads and sites are gravel with a little patch of weeds in between. Don't park on the weeds; the "manager" will make you move. The wifi has a good signal and is reasonably fast @ 3mbs. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent little park close to Marfa. The park is self service but the owner is available by the phone number on the website. It is best to book on line. Caretaker on site but no assistance...but I didn't need any. Honor system washer and dryer. I just loved this place! We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

Big Bend is 2 hours away. The McDonald observatory is 45 minutes away; don't miss the star party. Maria glider rides is also close and very cool. Not much to see and do in Marfa. Good star gazing!

This is a self-service park with few frills. When you arrive, you check yourself in. The park owner is available by email and the few time I wrote to him with questions like where's the closest propane refill (it's West Texas Gas in Alpine on Highway 118 north of the hospital, by the way), he wrote back quickly and was very helpful.

There are a few retro trailers always on site to add some charm, and the visitors seem to have a higher retro camper ratio than usual, too. It seemed a lot of folks just stayed for one night, but several stayed for a week or longer (like us) to have time to explore Marfa and the surrounding areas.

A previous reviewer mentioned lots of stickers. I didn't let my dog venture outside of the park boundaries, except for the walking path in the back, but she never got one in her paw here. It seemed to be cleaned up.

A few potential downsides: there's a train that runs right behind the park. It doesn't blow its horn at night like it does during the day, but you can definitely hear and feel the rumble. Also, there are provided shower and bathroom facilities, as well as a laundry facility and kitchen, but none have any kind of central air or heat. There is one washer and one dryer, but you pay with a cash envelope, so it's nice not to have to keep track of quarters. All in all, we'd stay again; our rate was with the weekly discount. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved our brunch at Squeeze Marfa. There's supposed to be a great organic grocery store in Marfa, although we never made it there; the Puebla Market grocery store is pricey and a bit picked-over. There's a Dollar General next door for quick things.

This park is self-service; no owner or management is on site or available and there is no contact information for them. Wifi is good near the buildings. The sites are fairly level gravel with full hookups. The grassy areas are full of goat head stickers, making walking with sandals on or with a pet uncomfortable and possibly dangerous. Small trees were planted near each site but most have died of neglect. There is no shade. The train tracks run behind the park, and trains run at various times during the night. Although there are no whistles, the engine and track noise could disturb a light sleeper with the windows closed. Bring earplugs just in case. There is a common room with a washer and dryer for use on the honor system with a suggested donation of $3. There are a refrigerator, sink and stove for camper use. The toilet/shower building has two toilet stalls and one separate shower/dressing area. The park is kind of cute and quirky with a neon sign and buildings geared toward the Marfa minimalist ambiance. However, minimalist design isn't the same as minimalist upkeep. We stayed for four nights. The washer and dryer were filthy the entire time. The sink, stove and refrigerator were too. The concrete floor in the women's bathroom wasn't swept while we were there, and looked like it had been a long time since the sink and toilet bowls were cleaned. The same poop stain that was in the toilet on the day we arrived was still there the day we left along with the wads of hair on the floor. Unfortunately, this is the best of the options for camping in Marfa, so positive changes are not likely from the absentee owners. Next time we'll eschew the convenience of being close to Marfa and opt for a better park in Alpine. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

A truly unique campground. If you like fluff and fancy, keep going. If you like character, this is for you. Price quoted is for a freight train long pull-through. Check in is honor system in a classic trailer. I didn't use the toilets or shower but they were clean and neat. The community area is graveled with benches and decorative wall (desert decorations). There is a building with kitchen (stove, fridge, sinks, tables) and a swap area. We were there a week and saw the manager twice. It seems like he lives on the property. He is the chef on the Food Shark, a gourmet food truck in Marfa. Water was good and clear, electricity steady and Wi-Fi strong. I would chose this over any glitz and glamor park I have seen. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

$24 per night was for a full hookup back-in site. Dirt/gravel sites are mostly level and there is adequate room for deploying slides and awnings. There is a common area that has a wood burning stove, a refrigerator, BBQ grill, picnic table, sink, washer/dryer, CDs and player,as well as a covered outside shelter that has a campfire ring. Management was there taking care of their small planted trees. As stated in previous reviews, check-in is done by the honor system or reservations can be made online if you’re paying by credit card. There are railroad tracks running alongside the campground but, thankfully, they blow their whistles about a half-mile either side of the campground and pass slowly by. The artsy town of Marfa proper is less a mile from the campground. If you like walking/biking there are many miles of trails/roadway in and near the park. We used the Tumblewide Wi-Fi (password at check-in trailer) for Internet access. AT&T reception was OK and Verizon reception was stronger. No OTA TV. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

As the April review stated, this is not your typical RV park. Marfa is not your average town either. This is a newer park, but do not expect above and beyond amenities. It is competitive compared to other local parks and does have decent and clean restrooms and a laundry facility. We loved the "Tumble in RV" sign and the overall "Aged" appearance of the park. Strictly self serve, but in keeping with the laid back Marfa lifestyle. We did not get good Wi-Fi reception from our space, but from the laundry building, it is better. Our AT&T reception was good. There is a train track very close, but we found it more charming than annoying given the outpost feeling of Marfa. It does not have any amenities for children and has too many thistle style weeds to enjoy much outdoor activity. We stayed here three nights and would stay here again. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was empty except for our friends and us. The self check-in is not a comfortable way to go with no envelopes available to put cash in. The other option was to write all our credit card information on the check in form and drop that in a box. We felt very uncomfortable with that idea too. The park is gravel and has no shade. It was noisy due to the trains. OK for an overnight stay only. Our basic needs were met but that was the extent of it. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tumble In is not your typical boring commercial RV park. The "office" is a refurbed Scotty (I think) and check in is unusual--you leave your CC number or cash as there is no attendant. The pull throughs are huge and easy to access. The landscaping is new so no worries about dialing in your satellite. WiFi the best we have ever had on the road. Great water pressure as well. Bathrooms were spotless and new. Yes, there are trains. But with the AC running, we barely noticed. Marfa is a fun little town. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at this groovy, work-in-progress place, but can't rate it very high on any kind of objective scale. We were the only souls in the place, never met the owners, but we did admire the cute/retro trailer office and the really cool architecture of the bathhouse, which was clean. We weren't keen on the price for such a bare-bones place next to the railroad tracks, though. Not sure if it'll improve with the heavily watered but odd landscaping. I know you can't escape goatheads in this area, but it seemed like that's what they were growing. All that said, we might stay again, though, as this seemed much better than another place.

We stopped back by the Tumble In because we had such fun in Marfa last time and wanted to see how the owners had fixed it up since our last time through, and we were really excited! They have incredible bathrooms and showers now and really strong free WIFI and they've been planting trees and grass. They even restored / fixed up their little self-check in trailer -- an adorable old "canned ham." One of the reasons we had so much fun last time was because the young couple who owned it were so nice, and they were just as nice and helpful this time. We've never seen as RV park with the style this place is going for. It's just cool for the whole family. It's only a year old, but the Tumble In is really going to be special.
