We arrived really late and were greeted by the owners who were very friendly and helpful. We camped 2 nights here in our motorhome, we did not have a full hookup, just water and electric. They didn't have any 50 amp sites but sold an adapter that we found to be a good purchase and something we will surely have need of/make use of in the future. The campground is large and mostly treed, surrounded by cornfields. It has 2 fishing ponds/lakes, a beautiful pool, a pavilion where activities are hosted (pot luck, crafts, Father's Day breakfast), golf cart rentals, 2 really nice playgrounds, a sports field(which we didn't take the time to look for), there is a "shower/bath house" with a small clean laundry room - the washers and dryers work and are reasonably priced. There are many "permanent" camp sites set up, most of which are very well maintained, there were a few that were not so nice, they looked like they had been there for decades - but hey, you're at a campground not the Ritz Carlton. I do have to say that many of the campsites were muddy but the area had just experienced some very heavy rain. We really enjoyed our stay at Rustic Acres and would gladly visit again. We camped at Rustic Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a family owned RV park/campground run a father and daughter team. Sites are pull through with full hook-ups. WiFi works perfect 99% of the time. Park is close to freeway (you can't hear it, though you would hear the main road if you had a site near the front of the park) and many stores and restaurants, clean and nicely landscaped, there is a fishing pond, bathrooms with handicap access showers, laundry room, playground. We looked for an RV park online and found this one to be exactly where we needed to be. My only problem is that the website shows a pristine clean laundry room with 3 washers and 3 dryers, but when searching for the "wash room" we found it in an "out building" on the opposite side of the playground with 1 washer and 1 dryer, which were both in desperate need of a thorough external wipe-down. The good thing about the machines is that they work efficiently and only cost $1.00 per load each. This RV park is in an industrial area and you can hear some noise from the big rigs but not so much that it should bother you. We camped at Archway RV Park (formerly Quality Times RV Park) in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Benton KOA for a month in our 35 foot RV. We had a back in site with full hook-ups. Monthly rate for us was $375 with metered electric to be paid upon check out. Our electric bill came to $43.00. Campground is managed by husband and wife team, very nice people. Campground is very clean and well maintained, close to town and freeway, has a catch and release pond, playground, clean laundry room with 4 washers and 3 dryers, nice general store/gift shop. WiFi works great most of the time, we didn't use the cable, we could see and hear the freeway though. We would definitely stay again if we were to come back to the Benton area. We camped at Benton KOA in a Motorhome.
If you have never been to the Benton area and love antiques, hit the "square" in town.
