“What a pleasant surprise!”

Reviewed Nov 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here under Passport America, so got the 50% rate. With PA you're never sure what you're going to get, as many of the campgrounds are very run down. Marathon was beautiful. The sites are pretty level, almost all of them have 30/50 service now. The work they have done to the courtyard, motel, and sitting areas make this a v... more

Doll and I stayed here for about 2 months. The place is beautiful and the people that work here are fantastic. My favorite spots in the Park are the courtyard and the garden, with their herbs and fruit trees. The high school held their prom in the courtyard while we were here. The kids had a great time. The RV spots are maintai... more

“We loved this place!”

Reviewed Mar 22, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2018. We paid an average of $24. a night with our Passport America membership. We honestly weren't expecting much when we booked this campground but after we arrived we found it to be a small oasis in the desert. We felt it had a very old west charm. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the ... more

“Good place to stop with full hook-ups and decent cell service before entering Big Bend.”

Reviewed Mar 01, 2017

Overall Rating

We stopped for two nights at Marathon Motel and RV Park before entering the Verizon dead zone in Big Bend National Park. Its proximity to the National Park and amenities made it a worthwhile stop for us. The park has a lovely courtyard area with a fountain and fireplace open to both motel and RV guests. The park has two areas for ... more

“Star gazing in a small town”

Reviewed May 19, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed based on reviews here and the fact that we could use Passport America (half off the price shown above) before moving on to a more expensive park in Alpine. If we didn't have reservations and packages coming to the next park, we might have stayed longer. We were able to walk or ride our bikes into town and it was a quiet place... more

“Ask for the spots on the hill out back”

Reviewed Mar 04, 2015

Overall Rating

We were happy with our site, but we were put on the hill at the far back of the campground and motel. We were put there presumably because we have a motorhome, but the sign said 36' and over and we told them we're under 30. Not sure if their length includes the toad, but since we were overnighting I guess that's what they were thinking... more

“Lousy campground in a great location”

Reviewed Jan 22, 2015

Overall Rating

This campground is now for sale and the amenities and staff seem to reflect the focus on milking it for all they can get. Showers are $5. There is 1 working washer and dryer. Wifi doesn't work at site 13 -- it is way up by the 50 amp service lot. Sites for 30 amp users are a gravel parking lot. Sewer connections are uphill and raise... more

“Absolutely Love Marathon”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2014

Overall Rating

It's a short walk to a great town full of wild transplants with even wilder stories... As for the park itself, I spent almost every night at the fire pit (where we were given free wood nightly) in the adobe courtyard. Met bikers and families and other travelers many nights, others locals would come over and we'd all exchange stories... more

“This is a parking lot on the hotel grounds with a train track next door. ”

Reviewed Aug 08, 2014

Overall Rating

We left here early -- the train noise was out of hand, and it was just a parking lot at the hotel, so we left and headed to Marfa. There are a few places to eat and some bars in town, but no laundromat and you need to get gas way before you get there!
