Tumble In ~ Marfa, Texas 1

TX Marfa_3934

I am innately drawn to obscure out-of-the-way small towns in our country. Just add in one Airstream, two days travel, a  yellow lab and a wanderlust for adventure and you’ll end up in the land of “Quirky” ~ better known as Marfa, TX. This post, however, is only about the accommodations found in Marfa ~ the Tumble In RV Park. I’ll be sharing stories about the town of Marfa and unique finds in my next post. When you hear Marfa is in the middle of nowhere, that is correct. And the Tumble In makes you feel right at home in the middle of nowhere! I loved staying here. Quirky, plain, no frills ~ yes but, there is something about it that grounds you. Waking up to hear the train passing by (and I do mean passing right by, check out the photo below of how close it really is), watching the tumbleweed float by like a silent passerbyer and the Texas winds that speak to you while blowing past your cheek.

Drive on in to the Tumble In….

Self check-in at the office which is an orange and white 1962 Mobile Scout (canned ham). Luv this!

Did I mention the “train”?

The facilities ~new, modern and really cool. Not your average RV Park so have an open mind!

View from my office on a blustery Marfa day (and another train!!). Otis was very circumspect of the “stickers” which are everywhere in Texas. Not so great for the pups paws.

  1. I absolutely loved Marfa. I have yet to meet an Airstream owner who dislikes that town. Most of my Airstream friends have visited. I only wish I had set aside more time to stay in Marfa. I won’t make that mistake on my next visit. I love the review and will check out El Cosmico and Tumble In next time. There is always Davis Mountain State Park too. So many choices and so little time.
