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.

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.

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.

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.

We had come in late at night and was greeted by some very interesting employees. They showed us to our site and told us to come on by for some late night hot chocolate. Great kamper kitchen for breakfast. Fire pits(really nice because it was chilly), water at the tent sites. Even a discount coupon for Karchner Caverns nearby. We stayed for 3 nights just because. Will return for next summer. We camped at Benson KOA in a Tent.

Easily found off I-10 using my GPS. Upon arriving at the Benson KOA, we were half way down the narrow dirt road leading into the campground when a car, truck and a pickup pulling a very large trailer tried coming out the road as we were going in. I had to actually stop my Class A as close as I could to a barb wire fence and wait for the vehicles to pass me. The car and truck made it fine but the pickup with the trailer knocked down several posts lining the drive. I suggested to the manager that they needed a wider entry/exit road. There is not room for two campers to pass! The manager was nice enough and showed me to our site. Level site, all dirt with a little gravel mixed in. A pull through so did not have to unhook the toad. Wi-Fi was very weak, used my ATT Air Card. Cable TV signal was weak but viewable. Would probably stay here again. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

Clean, quiet and on the opposite side of town from the busy railroad tracks. Not much to do, but for an overnight stay, would definitely return. Management was friendly and accommodating. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

The park was very clean and had many personal touches. The Wi-Fi was very poor as they restrict bandwidth to the point where I have seen dial-up faster. If you need streaming video or audio for business or in my case school, do not stay here. I was also a bit upset at the times they choose to clean the bathrooms, between 11:00am-1:00pm. If you need the bathroom do not sleep in. Also, the maintenance people are very noisy, actually running a skill saw at nine in the morning. The manager is grumpy and not very friendly. His wife who works with him is a real sweetie even bringing us an extra heater so our dog would not get cold, but speaks very poor English (Korean?). This park is not smoker friendly, prohibiting smoking in the cabins. There are also very few paved roads and the paved road coming in is rough. As I need a fast internet connection, I probably will not stay here again as the cabins are not cheap and I expect more bandwidth for my money. We camped at Benson KOA in a Campground Cabin.

Yes our dog had problems with the burs in her fur. We kept her on the rocks. The dog walk in the desert is fine for short hair and larger dogs. This KOA is older and has that feel, but the utilities were fine and the showers were clean. The propane was the cheapest in the area, and folks were coming from other campgrounds to have their tanks filled here. This is not a destination campground, but worked for us for day travel to Tombstone and Bisbee. You are a half mile North of the interstate, and the train track, so while you can hear them, it is in the distance. The train does blow its whistle when it goes through town, and you will hear it, but it should only bother the fussiest of sleepers. We camped at Benson KOA in a Travel Trailer.
