There is little good about this campground, but also little bad. The good points are the dog areas and being half a mile from town, out in the desert. The bad points are: narrow sites, slow wifi (good Verizon), ancient sewer connection too wide for modern hoses, and the fact that all pull-thru sites face south (which means that motorhome windshields face the sun most of the day). The price of $45 is way too high for what you get. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

I like to stay at KOA because I can usually count on cleanliness, good service, and a nice pet playground for my dog. This was actually better than most. It's an older campground, and some of the facilities show it, but everything is clean and in good working order. Propane refills are an excellent value, if you pay with cash. I would stay here again. We camped at Benson KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There's a lot to do in the area, but I didn't get out to look around. The nearby town of Benson has a good Safeway and Walmart store for re-provisioning.

Good for a one night stop. There are other parks in the area with much better accommodations. Beware of the train noise. They run long and loud. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Small KOA just off I-10West. Park is run by sweet couple, very friendly. Park itself is a little hard to get to as roads were rather "rutty" and uneven. This is an older KOA. Once inside park, roads and sites were gravel. Turns were a little tight, but doable. Sites were relatively level, and well marked. Small dog park but lots of "prizes" left from folks that don't clean up after their dogs, so beware and watch your step. Pretty quiet given the proximity to the interstate. Electric boxes are very "dated", but seemed to produce well (we use a surge protector). Park was less than 1/4 full. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Older KOA, OK for a one night stay. Owners were friendly. Didn't really use any amenities. Heavy rains made things messy. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is my park of choice when passing through or visiting the area (close to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, etc.). It is the only park in Benson that has no freeway noise or sitting so close to the busy train tracks that sleep is impossible. It is an older KOA, sites and road are gravel, level and good space between sites. Easy in and out for any size rig, utilities are well placed and work properly. Wifi is better than most, and with a few small trees satellite connect is available. They now have a nice enclosed dog run which we always appreciate, though there is acres of open "dog walk" area which we use for off leash play. Owners are very helpful and friendly and they have a nice store stocked with the essentials. This isn't the paved pretty campground like the nearby Butterfield, but it doesn't have the train noise and is quiet and serene. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

Sweet gem of a KOA. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Office was well stocked. Quiet and far enough off I-10. Park was practically empty - being the off season. Only saw two or three campers in the front area. Gravel and grass spots, plenty large for our 30' Airstream and tow vehicle without unhitching. Easy access to utilities. Some small trees in front with more trees in back. Stayed one night while traveling along I-10. Not a destination in itself, but an excellent choice for the area. We will stay here again. We camped at Benson KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is an OK campground with dirt roads and tight/short sites. The stes were well marked. They had great management, I came in late and my registration packet was in the night registration box waiting for me with clear instructions on where my site was and how to get to it. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the attractions in the area. They provided maps with the attractions and distance/time to get there from the park. W-Ffi worked great from my site. There were mo problems with the hookups. There was a really nice tent area with shade a grass, but the RV area was pretty much just a dirt parking lot. Two ponds on site with big koi and catfish. The campground is far enough away from the interstate and the railroad, so noise is not a problem. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

I stayed here for 3 days. Campground elevation is 3,561 feet. Maneuvering my 40 footer towing a dinghy in the park was slightly tight but no problem. Roads, sites and patio are gravel. Pull through sites barely hold a 40 foot coach towing. My site 46 offered 30/50 amp service and full hookups. Wi-Fi and cable TV were included in the daily rate. I was not able to receive AT&T Wireless 3G Internet but AT&T Cellular service was fine. I received Dish Network 110/119 Satellite TV from dish on roof of coach. Campground is pet friendly. Wal-Mart and Safeway are 2 miles away. I am unable to comment on other amenities due to not using them. This is a nice KOA for a few night's stay. It is far enough away from I-10 not to hear the traffic. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They have the lowest price for propane anywhere in the area. My only negative is the people camped next to me had a motorcycle with loud mufflers that they started up several times a day. This was my fourth visit here and I would return. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

We decided to take a long weekend, at a KOA with facilities in Benson partly because it was close enough to Tucson so that daughter could visit. Although this park is just OK, our kids did enjoy it enough that we may go back in the right season. I thought it was a bit over priced this time of year. There were only a couple other campers in the park at all. We were greeted by a black widow spider, who was residing on the under side of the picnic table, and there were many large ant hills, but to the campground's credit, they treated the ant hills while we were on site. Dog walking is an issue, as burrs are prevalent on the ground. No shade and no grass or dirt, all rocks and gravel. Older facilities, including pool, playground, and very small 9 hole mini golf course. All in all, enough to do that if it were not so hot we would have have a good time. Would have been nice to have a fish-able pond. We camped at Benson KOA in a Travel Trailer.

While this is not the spiffiest park on the planet, we enjoyed our stay here. The spaces were nice, level and wide enough to accommodate our big rig. As far as KOA's go, this is quite nice, as many KOA's we have encountered while crossing the US have been horrible in every way. The owners were delightful and worked hard to make everyone happy. Everything worked well, and we could not hear the freeway noise at all. The train horn was in the distance (but we love trains). We would stay here again. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

This was definitely not one of the nicer KOA's we have stayed in. It was pretty run down and not nearly as well maintained as we are used to seeing at KOA's. Their biggest asset is that they are close to so many tourist attractions, but I think next time we will look for a different place to stay. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.
