22 Parks near Benson, Arizona
Mar 2016 - $20.00
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

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 The bathrooms and laundry were clean though 50 years out of date.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

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

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

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
May 2016 - $30.00
Paved, some pull-thru, spacious lots. Some sites take a bit of maneuvering to level and keep tires on ground. $$ more than most, staff confused -- or micromanaged, and slope of asphalt makes this an 8. Dump area is small if there were a crowd. Easy access to cave & discovery center..must do cave-- worth it, but choose shoulder season (Nov, Dec, May) and make reservations ahead! - evadu
Mar 2016 - $30.00
Another nice AZ state park with plenty of room for the big rigs. Good connectivity with Verizon, using a booster. Marginal without the booster.
Great place to stay to explore the Caverns, nearby Tombstone and other points of interest in the area. Preferred the outside, back in sites to the pull thrus, more privacy, larger sites. - DRFink

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
Apr 2015 - $24.00
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
Mar 2015 - $25.00
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

We stayed here in a 30' Class C motorhome. Large, long sites with full hookups and level. Lots of wind. Quiet. Water pressure low. Couple washers not working but clean laundry room. Away from towns. We probably would stay again. - Jerryws98516
Apr 2016 - $34.00
Bad water pressure, bad internet, fuzzy cable, you have to pay for electric whether you stay one day or a month, pool was closed for repairs, very narrow roads coming and going. If these items aren't a concern then it is a great place. The spots are wide and plenty long so that is great. Others in area to choose from so wouldn't go back. - Steve & Terri

This is a very nice park. We stayed 2 weeks in a 38' motorhome. Lots are spacious, rest rooms and showers clean. Could use some additional hooks near showers but that's it. Jacuzzi was nice as was the pool. Main activities bldg was large and clean. Had a pool table and nice library area as well. Wonderful walking trails and spectacular views and sunsets! Just wish the weather had been been warmer. - Upnorthmich

Have stayed here a few times. They warn you to put Ajax, Comet or something similar all around your tires, jacks or anything that touches the ground as they have sugar ants that can invade your rv. Heed their advice, I got invaded this year. Yes it is an older park that could use some work, but overall a nice, relaxing park. The ponds definitely add to this. The sites I have been on have all been comparatively level. Free cable and water pressure and electric were good. - Critter

This is a long term stay membership park, primarily. Some short term users. Pet friendly. Fishing pond, golf, professional/helpful staff, shopping close by. Lots of STICKERS/THORNS so be pet aware, as they WILL get infected. Sunny, warm, little breeze. - work2fish

We stayed here under Western Horizon Resorts membership. It's been about three years since we were here last and based on some recent reviews we expected the park to be in poor shape. Some of the roads need attention and the park does not have 50 amp service and that's about the only negative we can come up with. Our site (66) and the sites around us had good solid gravel and were level. It was easy to navigate our 40 ft motor home. We had friends parked in the upper level and they were happy with their site. Verizon phone signal was weak but usable and our Verizon MiFi picked up two bars of 4G and also worked fine. Easy satellite dish reception. We are looking forward to future visits. - RalphA

Small, cramped RV Park in the town of Tombstone. Sites are the narrowest and closest together I've ever seen. Pull throughs on the edge of the park were side to side with shared utilities. Our site was not level. Park is completely gravel; there was no grass anywhere within walking distance for our dog. Long term residents were gruff and unfriendly, living in older trailers that were not kept up well, with dogs tied up outside. There was no cable TV offered, and there are no over the air TV channels available. Camp WiFi was spotty at best, with rates averaging 0.8 Mbps, when it worked. This park's location IS NOT worth it. I would stay elsewhere, and just drive to Tombstone for the day and park for free at the end of Allen Street. - Llando88
Dec 2015 - $36.00
We had a pull through site and the sites are narrow, you may be door to door with one neighbor. That being said, park was clean and office friendly and helpful. Location is great, it's 1 block from OK Corral ( gunfight kinda hokey but fun). Also easy walk to rest of Tombstone. If we came back to area, we'd stay again. - SlicksMom
Jul 2015 - $36.00
Friendly staff, conveniently located and within walking distance of most of the things to see and do in Tombstone. We stayed here on a Monday afternoon/night and what I would describe as the separate travelers' section of the Park was only a third occupied. So there was ample space between rigs. - Joe-n-Doe
May 2016 - $25.00
Stayed 3 nights to evaluate for the first time here. Very enjoyable stay. Extremely friendly staff, great WiFi. The ONLY distraction were small stickers in the grass that got in the dogs feet. Kind of hard to avoid that :-) Was in a corner lot so it was a little tight getting pulled out in the fifth-wheel. Will definitely go back. It's nearby, it's friendly, it's reasonable, it's enjoyable. - R Herring

The park seems to continue to slowly deteriorate. This time, there was no Internet, and the long-term residents said there had not been any for well over a month. The manager was never in the office during office hours. The bathhouses, including laundry facilities, were very well-kept, though. - crow11

Weeds so tall I had a terrible time moving just around my 5th wheel. No one at the office the 5 times I went in. Dog park was horrible with a full bucket of waste that was there the entire 5 days I was there. Very old trailers mostly. - Texas cowboy
