22 Parks near Benson, Arizona
Jul 2016 - $19.00
Another great park for Passport America. We stopped here for 1 week and ended up staying 3 weeks. Can not beat the price for what you get here. Would have gave it a 10 but there is train noise. It didn't bother us but it might some folks. Power great. Pool and hot tub. Will stay again if in the area.
Easy access to the I-10 and state hi ways: 80, 90, 182, 183. It is centrally located for many attractions. The whole town is clean & friendly. Sites offer some shade. Our site surface was asphalt and it featured a picnic table. Very nice pool & spa. Free ice. Great observatory show. Near to Tucson and Tombstone and other attractions. We went to the raceway in Tucson for 4th of July. Close to shopping in Benson and the post office. - McPups

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. - FireFlyer

A well-planned park with spacious sites, most gravel, but some pull-throughs with paving. Each site had a small tree (which in the Arizona sun was nice), along with picnic tables at the pull-thru sites. Well-maintained grounds and clean amenities, with the added bonus of a planetary observatory. - SeenAll50

Beautiful gem of a park! We pretty much had the place to ourselves, only 2-3 other campers. We made a quick overnight stop on our way through in order to visit the caverns. Trail from the campground to the visitor's center is a paved and short walk. Site was slightly unlevel but an easy fix. Park was easy to navigate through. No campfires allowed except at a community fire pit. Park was quiet, except for some loud cows in the ranch next door. Would definitely stay here again. - wookiemouse

We will always opt for a State Park anywhere we go, so we have seen many along the way. This one is a great park. With mountains visible all around, the sunsets were breathtaking. Now this is desert land, so don't expect high trees for shade. The native plants are mostly cactus of one kind or another - and some do give shade, just not much. The sites are generously spaced from one another with give plenty of length for long rigs and trucks to park. They offer 30 and 50 amp electricity and water; no sewer at the site. Picnic table was set into the grass/weeds. No patio or shelter. - the Fishers

We absolutely loved it here. We stayed a bit off-season, but the weather was gorgeous - not too hot during the day, and perfect in the evening. Plus, we nearly had the park to ourselves.
The views are spectacular, and the hosts very gracious. We really enjoyed the spotless showers while here, since there are no sewer hookups.
There is basically no cell service here (for AT&T at least), but there is WiFi throughout the park, and it is really fast. We couldn't make calls while here, but easily sent texts, planned activities, and stayed in touch, thanks to the WiFi.
Our site (44) was quite sloped towards the front, but we were able to make it work with our jack extension. Those without a jack extension or with rigs longer than 30 feet might be best choose another site. To be fair, we were warned by the hosts about this site, but we fell in love with the view and the afternoon shade.
Overall, we were extremely pleased, and cannot wait to return! - Stagger Lee

Overnight stay, electricity was good, but the water supply was intermittent. Sometimes we had water pressure, then not. Owners said it was broken pipes. We are dog owners and the pet run was great for us. The water issue will probably keep us away on our return trip. - StormGuy

Like a lot of older KOAs, facilities have not been upgraded in decades. The owners - an elderly Korean couple - were helpful, however communication was sometimes a problem. The bathrooms and laundry were clean though 50 years out of date. Basic cable was suppose to have 12 channels however we were never able to get more than 5 clearly. As others have noted the major selling point for this campground is its distance from the RR and I-10 which keeps noise to a minimum. Very little shade so most sites heat up quickly. The rear of the campground has a pond but the area around it is overgrown and being used as a dump for brush. Also there are some abandoned vehicles and campers in this area making it particularly unattractive for a stroll. Campground is OK for overnight. - longgone

A little expensive for off-season but otherwise an adequate park. Park is not particularly attractive, but it's far enough off the interstate and train tracks to be very quiet. Owners are very nice and helpful and work constantly to keep the place up. Small pool was clean, residential-type hot tub was not operating. Bathrooms were rustic but clean. Laundry was just OK, but was inexpensive. The cable was adequate, but the Wi-Fi didn't work very well. Sites are dirt and gravel, adequate in length and width for a big rig. Hookups are well-placed. There were a lot of ant hills and we were glad none got into our rig. We had the whole front of the park to ourselves a couple of nights. Convenient to shopping in town and local attractions. It looks to be like it might be the best park in town. - Luvtheroad

Checked in here for an overnight stay. Park is close to I10 and is close to Denny's, which is convenient. The manager was nice and checked us in quickly. Wi-fi costs extra but free cable. They advertise that they fill propane tanks, but when we inquired we were told that was only for weekly or monthly guests. Ok place for an overnight stay only. - Retiredandontheroad

Good location, right across the street from a Denny's and right off the freeway. Did not have a pleasant greeting and park is not well maintained. For a last minute overnight stay it worked. But felt the price was high for the quality. You also had to pay for wifi. - traveling bug

We planned for only an overnight at this park. Good thing - this place is a dump. If you like sand, dirt, and scraggly weeds, this place is for you. The hook-ups were acceptable. Showers and restrooms were closed. I can't imagine anyone staying here for more than one night. And the price was way too high considering this was summer in Arizona. - marvls

This was our second winter staying for 2 1/2 months. We are booked for next winter as well.
The managers are extremely accommodating and friendly. All staff work hard to see their guests/friends are happy and well taken care of!
There are many activities to join if you so choose i.e. pot lucks, dances, ATV trips, crafts, hikes. Can't wait to go back! - Doug and Barb Gilbart

Very over rated, both by Good Sam & Passport America. We normally stay at Cochise Terrace that have about the same ratings, but this park doesn't come close to having the same quality. I only stayed there because they had pull-throughs. I've parked in the desert and had a more level space. Too many overhanging Mesquite that can scratch a big RV. Space was too small to be called a pull thru. Will not stay there again. - JetSeller

All staff were extremely accommodating and friendly! Many planned activities and hikes for those wishing to join. Pot luck once a week with a house band performing after. Saturday night dance at least once a month with house band and some talented park members occasionally singing along! Propane in park with pick up and delivery service. Ducks and birds! - Doug and Barb Gilbart

This is an old park but very clean. We stopped here because of the very nice city golf course. The park itself sits right along the freeway at about the same elevation, and along with the trains the noise is just about unbearable, but for two nights we made it. Next time we will pass on this one. The 30 amp sites are very tight, but the manager or owner is very nice, so there you have it. - monaco cruiser

Stayed here 2 nights at Passport America rate (actually, $10.75) It was okay for a couple of nights, but sites weren't very big. Other campers and staff were okay, but didn't talk much. Price was very good, though, and we'd stay there again if we were passing through Benson. - Bobbi1948

This park is right off of I-10 but we didn't get a lot of traffic noise. Sites are level and gravel with a picnic table. There are some long term residents but the park is relatively neat and clean. All sites are satellite friendly, but no Wi-Fi internet. Our rate is the Passport America rate for one of the six 50A pull through sites. 30A sites are $1.50 less. PA is available with no restrictions. - Ned

The rate is the daily rate. Electric costs us $3 more. The park is beautiful and very well kept. Check-in was painless. They do give you several sheets of paper, including detailed rules and regulations. As with all Escapee parks there is a 4 pm social hour; everyone was quite pleasant. The sites are huge. Some have the owner's storage shed/casita on the site, ours did not. The park is very quiet as it is a ways off of the road. We stayed for one night, but it would be very easy to stay a week or even longer. - TheJim

This Escapee park is very well kept and managed. The facilities and camping site were very nice and everyone was friendly. The sites are good sized and most have a small building the owner constructed. Our site was graveled as were most we saw and level. They have someone guide you to your site and show you the hookups. The laundry facilities were good with only a couple of machines out of service.
We got the special rate for first visit of only $50.00 per week plus electric, which is hard to beat. We would stay here again if we are back through this area. - jtl2

While the park appears to be a nice, well kept place, as overnighters we did not have the chance to experience it.
They do not except reservation. You can not call to determine availability. So you have to drive out to the park to find that all they offer is dry camping. Nice people, lousy way of doing business for travelers. Enough to make us re-evaluate the value of our continued membership in the club. - CharlieB

This is an excellent park, clean, well maintained, friendly staff, shaded in the right sites. The only problem that kept me from rating a ten was the WiFi. After 8,000 miles and many RV parks, this was the worst, slowest, crappiest WiFi ever! I have stayed in many truck stops and Walmarts with way superior WiFi. - kccwoodworks

We reserved a site for 6 days and ended up staying 7. The park is very nice despite the lack of shade trees (it is high desert so that's not unexpected). It is a retirement community and has camping for short or long term. The staff is very helpful and an escort is provided to your site. The office does close early. Pull through and back in sites are available. There's plenty of room for walking without getting outside the park. We enjoyed our stay and would return. - grandma0942

Very nice park. Friendly staff. Long gravel pull throughs. Would definitely stay here again. - arkietraveler

This campground and golf course are closed. There is a For Sale sign on the front fence gate. - Roger and Cathy's Adventures
Feb 2012 - $30.00
Very friendly and accommodating staff. We stayed here so we could golf (par 58 course) and not disconnect the trailer. The sites are gravel, wide and long and generally in good condition. We did have to raise the front of the rig substantially to get it reasonably level. NBC was the only good TV channel we could receive other than a number of Spanish language stations. No I-10 or train noise! This park is owned by the nearby Cochise Terrace RV Resort which has made a number of improvements here. Restaurant and bar in the Clubhouse. - rncordy

A wonderful place to stay! Staff is great to deal with, the place is so clean, I think they must scrub the streets. Bathrooms are spotless, laundry room is too. We enjoyed the pool and locker room facilities and every person we met here was so nice.
Easy to maneuver, wide streets, large sites, beautiful views, and quiet and safe. We stayed nine days, which is 4 days longer than we planned, simply because it was so pleasant here.
WiFi iffy, but they are working on making it better, it works fine near the pool and in the clubhouses. They also offer a Cable hookup that works great. For the Passport America rate, this place is great. We highly recommend this park and would certainly stay here again. - PARTYOF2

After our winter's stay in Tucson, we began our trek east with a stop at Cochise Terrace. It was a great place for day trips to Bisbee and Kartchner Caverns state park, great value with Passport America. Nice long and fairly level pull-through paved sites; we were on the end site adjacent to a lovely cactus garden, with several in bloom. Lovely mountain vistas as well. Also enjoyed the pool one afternoon. Good Verizon, Wifi only with our jetpak; good water pressure. We would definitely return to Cochise Terrace, stayed in a 42 ft 5th wheel. - nw explorers

This is a nice park that was clean and the staff was very nice. They are just focused on other issues. First, they want to sell everyone a RV lot in the park, not my style. Second, their pet policy was just over the top bad with all kinds of restrictions. Third, the internet is useless even for e-mail. We need internet for our work and this one just does not work. The park was less than half full, so on a big weekend it would be worse. We will not be returning. - JeffnAnita
