On the last leg of a long trip, we decided to have a short drive day and relax a bit. As such we made a reservation for what had been a nice little KOA. This KOA is about one mile north of the freeway, then one quarter mile on one of the roughest section of road I have been on. After navigating the ruts and potholes we arrived at a rather bleak (gravel, weeds, trees struggling to grow) RV park. On check in the owner was quite concerned that we arrived early (11 am) and would have to charge us an additional $2.00 for electricity. A minimal amount, though when already paying $43 to park in a dirt lot in an empty park (one van was parked in a site and appeared abandoned) he was making no effort to make us a repeat customer. The sites are level, utilities work appropriately and there is adequate space between sites. They do have a fenced dog area which was not (in my opinion) sturdy enough for our large dogs. Instead we used their designated dog walk area. While walking the dogs there in the late evening (dark), a car came down what I thought was an abandoned dirt road in the walk area requiring a quick scramble into the shrubs. Thankfully the driver spotted us and made good use of his brakes. So much for our relaxing stay. We had stayed here some years ago, unfortunately they seem to have few customers and appear to be slowly falling into disrepair. The one bright point is that it is located far enough away from both the interstate and the railroad (very active track) so the noise is minimal. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

Very disappointed, expected better from a KOA. Their book says 'cable - yes' I do not consider 12 TV stations to be cable TV. Also the web site offered sites that were upgraded in fall 2007. HUH? This campground hasn't changed a bit in as many years as it has been around. You know when you drive in and there is NO OTHER RV's in it, you are in big trouble. We will NEVER stay here again and have crossed it out of the KOA book. I am also writing KOA to voice my disapproval. All of this for $39.00? No thanks! We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park for an overnighter. It is in a pretty setting. The buildings are in need of major repairs. It's a tired, old KOA that needs attention. The sites are fine and the people are very nice. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Dirt..dirt..and more dirt. Aside from lots of dirt and only 4 channels available on the cable..the park is okay for a one night stay. We were traveling with our 2 little Shih Tzu's. If you have pets, the park does not have a fenced in pet area and there are many sand spurs around the park that get into the dogs paws. If you are traveling with children, there is a small playground. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older KOA. The sites are full of puncture vine and ant hills. After we had committed for a week, and paid, the owner mentioned the puncture vines. There are some small trees that give little shade. It has a nice dog walk but dogs get "goat heads" in their feet getting there. We were there a week and only 1 of 4 washers worked. It is a typical KOA. Anymore, they are either very nice and overpriced or run down and overpriced. The advertised big rig access is true but, barely. We will not return, nor can we recommend this park. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Downgraded greatly due to poor condition of restroom/shower area. Roaches in the women's restroom. The general impression that it was reasonably clean until spending a little time in the shower area. The bathroom tiles were very grimy at the top - the walls above the tile were also grimy. This was old dirt that apparently had been there for some time. The same with corners and crevices in the restroom. It appears these areas had just been given "a lick and a promise" for quite a while. Needs a thorough scrubbing probably a little bleach or disinfectant wouldn't hurt either. The woman at the front desk was quite pleasant. I wouldn't have minded all of the "please don't" signs if the cleanliness had warranted it. We camped at Benson KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Owners spoke broken English which made check ins lengthy and difficult, very little grass anywhere, several sheds filled with wood, cardboard, and assorted trash, Koi pond needed a good cleaning, and mini-golf overdue for necessary repairs. Far enough away from I-10 that there wasn't much noise but a siren went off at 4 in the morning. OK for overnight but not much more. We camped at Benson KOA in a Campground Cabin.
