Based on other reviews, we didn't go in with many expectations. However, we were pleasantly surprised....it turned out OK. We only stayed for 2 nights, but it was quiet and peaceful in what you would think would be an urban area. As other reviewers have mentioned, you need to make your entry to Flanders-Netcong Rd off of Old Ledgewood Road. If you try to come in off International, it deadends before you get to the park. The terrain is hilly, but we navigated it just fine with a 40' toyhauler (57' overall length). We had a pull-through site that was long enough. Water, power, and sewer worked just fine. Not a big site, but adequate. No cable. Satellite is unlikely due to lots and lots of trees. Over the air TV was VERY limited. There is WiFi, but as we have found in every park we've stayed in, it is slow. Our ATT & Verizon hotspots worked well. The owner is working on making things better, but it's not an overnight process. We would return if we were in the area.

Just finished up a week at Ben Franklin. This is a smaller family-owned park. Used to be a mobile home park, but is gradually being shifted over to a full-on RV park. Only a couple of mobile homes left. The family members who are running it are working hard and doing a great job. They just have a ways to go yet. Mix of back-ins and pull throughs. Variety of site lengths. Sites not clearly delineated, but you can figure it out. Utilities worked well, although the sewer was a stretch for us. No cable. Only a few shaded sites, so satellite worked well. Good water pressure. Convenient to York - especially the west side. There is definitely highway noise. It is right up against the ramp from old US 30 onto Bypass 30 and the truck jake brakes can be pretty loud. Other than that, we would encourage you to give these folks a try! Let's help them be successful!

This park is a hidden gem. We would never have expected to find a place like this in the DC metro area. It is a public/regional park that includes a huge day-use area, a water park, a shooting range, an events center, and a campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. A mix of back in and pull-through sites. The pull-throughs are loop sites. Sites have picnic tables, fire ring (wood available at campground store) and all utilities except cable. Utilities were modern and worked well. Some are in funny places related to the rest of the site. All sites back into or face into wooded area with squirrels, foxes, and deer. The shooting range is nearby and active during the day, but is done by nightfall. You are under the approaches for Dulles Airport, but airplane noise was minimal. No cable, satellite is unlikely due to trees, but there are a ton of over the air channels available in the DC area. Staff were friendly. Park was quiet and clean. We will definitely return here on our next visit to the DC area.

As the owner told us, this place is NOT an RV Resort. It is, however, a perfectly acceptable place to stay that is quiet and close/convenient to Pinehurst. We came for the golf, not for lounging at the RV park. As others have described, this is a small (16 spaces) RV park located at a private airport. The spaces themselves are mostly back-in, with a couple of pull-throughs. Most of the spots are taken by long-term renters, but no problems there, other than they go to work early. Utilities worked, although we had low water pressure. I wouldn't count on getting satellite access - there are a LOT of trees. You might get lucky, but probably not. No cable, but we got a bunch of over-the-air channels from Raleigh and Greensboro. Awesome place for a dog - lots of room to roam and play! No facilities at all - no restrooms or showers - you need to be self-contained. The Pik-n-Pig BBQ restaurant across the street is excellent - and busy. The good news is they close at 8. After that, it is very quiet and dark (no night operations at the airport). Note that the restaurant is cash or local check only (ATM on site). The RV park is also cash or check - no credit cards. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if we go to play more golf at Pinehurst!

Stayed for 7 days/8 nights in a 40' toyhauler. As others have mentioned, the back portion of the park is primarily seasonal/long term sites with quite a few park models. In the front, right behind the office and near the pool, are 4 rows of sites for short term stays. 3 of the 4 rows are pull throughs and 1 is back in. Some of the sites have shade and some don't. We were in one of the pull throughs. The roads are asphalt, the sites are concrete. Our TH fit on the site, but it was tight to put the truck in there with it. We leveled without a problem. I saw quite a few Class A's with one or more tires off the ground. Utility connections worked well Pool is very nice. Close to Pinellas Trail for biking/walking and close to the Dunedin Causeway beaches. No cable. Internet was very hit or miss. Worked sometimes, didn't work or was slow most of the time. There is a small dog run - it works. Nicest park in the area, but not a perfect 10!

Stayed here for an overnight while passing through the Tallahassee areain our 40' toyhauler. We would definitely recommend this park for an overnight. It is easy to access - just a few miles off I-10. They have about 8 long pull-throughs that look like they are dedicated to overnighters. The utilities were dated, but worked just fine. The cable was excellent and clear. This is an older park with mostly full-time residents. Some units have obviously been there a long time. But that doesn't take away from the value and convenience of this park for an overnight. We would definitely stay here again if passing through the area.

We stayed here for an overnight stop as we passed through the area. We picked the park based on reviews here and called for a reservation while on the road. Boy were we disappointed. The park is 1/4 mile from the water (not a big deal for us, but might be for others) in a pretty unattractive part of town. Nice entrance. We arrived after the office closed, but a package was waiting with our info (except for the receipt we were promised by e-mail). We found our site easily enough. We travel in a 40' 5th wheel. All of the pull-throughs are exactly that. Our rear bumper was on the curb and the front of the cap was on the curb on the other end. No room to park the truck anywhere near the site. Utilities were clean and seemed to work OK, although the pedestal tripped our Progressive surge protector once. Didn't see any sites - either pull through or back in - that were much longer than 40'. Be careful if you are in a big rig. When we left in the morning, we waited until 9 so we could visit the office and get our receipt. Supposed to open at 9, but not one was there by 9:15-9:20. We were told by someone on site that there are new owners since September and the customer service has really gone downhill. I don't know what other choices might be in the area, but I don't think we would ever go back.

Stayed for two nights in a 40' 5th wheel while visiting friends in the area. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. Sites and roads are all paved, but the roads need some work and have some serious potholes. Site was plenty long enough for 5er and truck. Utilities clean and functional, although the sewer connection was far enough away that I had to dig out my sewer extension hose for the first time in 10 years! We actually liked the park a lot, but downgraded for the condition of the road and the VERY slow (almost unuseable) WIFI - seems that's the case in almost every park we visit these days.

One of the nicest parks we've stayed in over the years. Great, friendly staff. Nice facilities (biggest and nicest dog park we've ever seen!). Lots of choices in types of sites, from smaller backins to larger pull throughs. All sites are gravel, all roads are paved. Utilities were clean and worked well. The park is actually located in Hudson Bend/Lakeway area near Lake Travis. Groceries, shopping, golf, restaurants are all nearby. Wifi slow as is the norm in every park we stay in. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for three nights while visiting friends in the area. A very nice park. Nice layout, friendly staff, nice sites, good utilities, free wifi (slow, as usual), very clean laundry facilities, quiet. Staff said that 80-90% of sites are long-termers who are working in the area. However, all rigs and sites are clean and well kept. The only downside to this place is a temporary one and it is the reason for only rating it an 8. The entrance road passes by a large new complex of tilt-up industrial buildings. Due to the construction, the entrance road for the park includes about 1/4 mile of dirt/gravel/busted asphalt. It was very rough and muddy due to rains during our visit. I think everyone is hoping that it will be fixed and improved as the construction winds down. But no indication when that will be. The park is less than a mile from the Texas Motor Speedway and would be a great place to stay if in the area. I understand it is also close to the Amazon distribution center, but does not participate in the Camperforce program. We would recommend it and would stay there again if in the area.

We stayed here for an overnight while passing through. It was good for that purpose. 1/2 mile south of I10. No highway or train noise. Roads and sites are dirt and gravel. Utility connections are a bit dated and worn, but worked OK. Free WiFi that was slow as is the usual case in every park we've ever stayed in. Yes, there were workers staying there for a pipeline project in the area. That's OK -they have to live somewhere. Their rigs were modern and their sites well kept. They were also quiet -even on a Saturday night. Those we saw driving went very slow to keep down the dust. Long, wide pull-throughs. Nice fenced dog area. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Used to be KOA. Now a Good Sam Park.

Stayed here for an overnight while passing through from West to East. We called several hours in advance and were greeted warmly on the phone and promised a site. When we arrived after the office had closed, we found an envelope on the door with our name on it, encouraging us to just pick a site and settle up in the morning. As other reviewers have mentioned, most sites are gravel and pretty level. There are a few paved sites. We put our 40' toyhauler in a back in site with no problem. Utilities were clean and worked correctly. Wifi was free, present, and pretty typical these days - slow. Site was clean and had a picnic table. When we checked out, the staff was also excellent and friendly. The only thing that didn't show up in any of the previous reviews is the train! A major train line runs through Benson and passes several blocks from the park. You can't here the trains, but you can definitely hear the train air horns as they sound for the grade crossings. Staff said 'you get used to it'. I suppose so. It wasn't a major problem for us, but if you're a light sleeper, you should be aware. We would return again if in the area.

As describe by others, this recreation area is operated by the Padre Dam Water Authority. The series of 7 lakes are part of the water supply system. Most of them are in the day-use area. The RV area is at the far north end of the park. A couple of loops are on the lakes, most are north of the lakes. We've been here before and not much has changed. The lots are packed dirt/DG. That's good when it's dry (which is most of the time), but could be messy if it rains. There is a nice pool/clubhouse where there are frequent events, including a Wednesday night potluck and Thursday morning breakfast. Utilities are modern and function well. Verizon coverage is terrible = barely 1 bar and frequent dropped calls. Not the park's fault....just be aware. The Internet service is free and worked well, with occasional slow periods. We like this park and will likely go again. Volunteer staff/camp hosts were friendly and helpful.

We've stayed here many times and always enjoy it. It is a beautiful park. As described in other posts, this is an ownership park and you can rent a site while the owner is away. Many are developed with nice outdoor living amenities. Downgraded from a 10 to a 9 this time because of a couple of changes. The store and cafe are both closed. Don't know if this is permanent or temporary. They were both nice amenities that are missed. Looks like major water pump work going on that has 2 golf holes closed and a couple of the lakes dry. I'm sure that will be resolved soon and everything will return to green. Rate reflects 4th of July holiday rates. We will return again.

This was our 5th visit to the Springs at Borrego, so obviously we are happy customers: we keep going back. This is a clean, well-kept, and well-managed resort that includes golf (9-hole), tennis, and pool/spa. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Sites are good sized. The original section of the park is mostly pull-throughs and there is a new section that are larger, but back-ins. All utilities are modern and functioned well. This was the first time we've been frustrated with the internet service. There are lots of routers/connections in the park, but the service was slow: sometimes painfully slow. At first we blamed it on the usual: when the park is full, service slows down due to limited bandwidth. However, this time I also noticed that my Verizon connection was slow. 3G at best and also very slow. We had the opportunity to spend some time with folks who live here and they said that they were also having speed issues on their home system (Verizon). The carriers have enough installed capacity for normal usage, but on high-volume weekends (this was President's Weekend), the high number of users in town brings everything to its knees. So: internet was slow, but I'm not sure in was the resort's fault. We're happy customers and have already booked our next visit.
