“Great oasis@”

We stopped over heading to Big Bend national park and what a wonderful oasis deep in the heart of Texas! Hosts were gracious and grounds well maintained. Ate dinner at White Buffalo restaurant easy walk from park...excellent food. Star gazing was awesome. 

“Welcome sight for weary travelers”

Park is very pleasant to look at, motel cabins are adorbs. Separate area for big rigs (class a) or so it seems. We stayed on level gravel lot with full hookups. Bathrooms are nicely decorated and very clean, rare to find as nice as these. I paid $35 for my class c RV.

“One night”

Nice park, Just thought to be a little pricey AT $35 A NIGHT FOR 35AMP and no pool. I am the only one here.

“A great place to see the stars.”

Nice place to stay, clean and easy to find. Lots of space and great service. 

“Great place to see the night sky”

Star gazers & astronomy enthusiasts check this place out.  My husband loves this little park as it offers amazing views of the night sky.  The area is rated a scale 1 on the Bortle Light Pollution scale.  Any given night we have been here there are folks out looking thru telescopes & taking pictures of the night sky.  2 pics here are pics my husband took one night.

The park isn't very big with only 19 sites but does have good WiFi & cable TV.  Also, 3 level concrete pads with 110 power & a shade cloth cover to prevent any light intrusion if you want to get out your own telescope.  The owner is very nice, will talk about the night sky with you & let you look thru his large telescope.

Marathon, TX is known as the north gateway to Big Bend National Park.  While it is a little ways to the park, the drive makes for a nice day trip.  We actually went there 2 different days during our stay.

We would definitely stay here again.

“Great place to see the stars”

Nice place, well kept level spaces. The owners have done a great job of decorating the park. Stayed during a Full Moon so didn't get to experience just how dark it was suppose to get there, maybe next time.
Stayed: 03/22/15 to 03/29/15

“Great place”

Great place to stay in Marathon.  Nothing fancy and the train is pretty noisy at night, but other than that a neat place.  We enjoyed learning about the stars with the owner Danny at night.  Restrooms are clean and the staff is very friendly.
