Very, very nice park. We arrived intending to stay one week and stayed two. Lots of activities that all guests are welcome, even encouraged to attend. Happy hour every afternoon, numerous craft groups, card games, breakfasts, dinners and many other activities really kept us busy. This is the friendliest place we have been to. It is also very dog friendly.

The park has a number of transient spaces, but most of the sites are leased by Co-op members. We were fortunate enough to be assigned one where the lessees were traveling.

The park is surrounded by hundreds of acres of desert with miles of trails to explore. The dogs had a great time here.

Rate quoted is based on the weekly rate without electricity. Our power bill for two weeks was $67. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Mi Casa Mexican restaurant is very good. Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns are must see. Benson has adequate shopping and services for an extended stay, Tucson is about an hour away.

One of the best parks we've stayed in. Would rate "10" if they had wifi throughout the park. We happened to be near the clubhouse, so were able to pick up wifi. Clean, friendly, well maintained park. Clubhouse w/ weekly breakfasts and dinners-terrific entertainment! Some of the residents have created adorable little "casitas" on their sites and you may receive a park tour upon request. Can't say enough good things about this park and its residents, we look forward to returning! We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Kartchner Caverns very near, Tombstone and Bisbee are a short drive. Monastery in St. David about 6 miles and worth the visit.

Beautiful park with lots of daily activities. Also has an exercise room. Would definitely recommend for an extended stay. This was our first stay so got a week for $50, normally more. Short terms stay in unused long term spots. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

This park is small, quiet, well maintained, clean, and tucked away nicely. Sites are good sized. People are welcoming and friendly--they actually have a welcome committee. Lots of groups and activities, if you are so inclined. Convenient location to visit Benson, Tombstone, Bisbee, Tucson, Wilcox. Club house with library, pool room, stage, kitchen, small gym, television, puzzles. Laundry room is small, but adequate. We really liked it here. We felt comfortable, safe, and relaxed. Would stay again for longer period. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Of all the SKPs parks we've stayed at, this was the most welcoming, best organized, and most friendly park. The facilities are all first-class, and visitors are invited to participate in a multitude of activities are scheduled each day. We were fortunate to rent an absent owner's lot, with paved pad, landscaping, and casita patio, but there are plenty of traditional rental sites also. Good cable, nothing to block satellites, and strong Verizon cell/data. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to Benson with a small Wal-Mart and Safeway and a variety of restaurants. Driving distance to many birding and historical sites, and an hour from central Tucson.

Only there for one night but was impressed by the attractiveness of the park. Very well maintained and with a lovely mountain view. Mostly seasonal, as this is a co-op, and understandably quite popular as a winter destination. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Benson is a nice-sized town and has plenty of amenities.

Nice SKP co-op park. Unique buildings on many of the lots, well maintained park. Lots of in-park SKP type activities, and close to Tombstone, Bisbee, and Tucson. Lots of desert behind the park for hikes. Still close to trains that run all night, even without blowing their horns. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Escapee rate plus electric (about $2.00 per night). Very nice Escapee CO-OP park. Well maintained, friendly neighbors, and inexpensive nightly rate. Wide roads are big rig friendly; FHU; cable and good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. Walmart nearby. Enjoy a fine Mexican dinner at Mi Casa in Benson. We stayed four nights. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

I think this my favorite campground to date. The resort was designed by and for fulltime RVers who are members of Escapees. The fulltime philosophy and common sense approach is evident everywhere from the wide, paved roads to the excellent and much used activity center. The sites are both deep and wide. Almost all of them are leased and sport various levels of improvements. Many have “casitas”, which are small buildings with porches. The sites are all gravel but leaseholders decorate them with cactus gardens and other decorations. Here’s the deal: when the leaseholder is out seeing the country, they can put their site in the rental pool. Travelers who rent don’t have use of the casita, but generally there’s a nice porch and other upgrades to enjoy. The lease program is so popular that there’s a years-long waiting list for an opportunity to buy in! There are other sites that are set aside, some for short term visitors and others for long term visitors who come in for the winter. There are even paved no-hookup overnight spots.There are get-togethers every day and many activities. The property has no pool or spa and reservations are not accepted. Escapees facilities are famous for always finding a place for a traveler to park their RV even it has to temporarily be a spot with no hookups. The activity center has a large meeting room with a full-sized commercial kitchen, a large library, a workout room with modern equipment, and a crafts room. There’s also a nice porch with a view of the valley below and the Dragoon Mountains. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

If this park had free wifi it would be a 10. We were so impressed with this park - very neat and clean. Since the sites are leased each owner keeps their site to perfection. The amazing landscape committee then maintains the common grounds. We found a great weekly special to check out the park and enjoyed our visit. Our objective was to find a great place to spend the winter and this is near the top of our list. The Benson area is south of Tucson and has various historical sites worth visiting.

Probably the friendliest RV park we have ever stayed. This park has residents who care. They have a superb club house with constant activity, including a 6 day per week social hour between 4 and 5PM. This place, honestly, is better than home. There are historic sites surrounding the City of Benson, and you will never be bored. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

We tried this campsite at the recommendation of a friend who is an escapee member. They were offering a special that we could not resist of $50 for a week stay. Overall, the park is very clean and well maintained, but it just is not our type of park. It is too large for my tastes - really a small village, with everything that entails such as a club house and lots of activities. If that is what you are looking for, then this is definitely the park for you. There is no pool however, and the free Wi-Fi is only available in the clubhouse, which was quite a long walk away from where we were parked. Also, there is only one laundry and one shower area for the entire park. We will be staying at a smaller park with more amenities and fewer programmed activities next time we are in the area. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

Wow!! I can't think of any reason not to give this park a 10. This is a membership park called Escapees. My Mother suggested joining, which we did about two weeks ago. Great park which is centrally located to many wonderful local destinations. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and so helpful. The long term residents are open and friendly. Big bonus is the off leash area just outside the property line that provides miles of trails. The whole park is either paved or decorative gravel so the dust is at a minimum. They really show pride of ownership here. The rate reflects a great deal. They were offering, for a weeks stay. $50 for first time visitors plus about $20 for one week for electrical. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.

People are very friendly in the park. The park is on a hillside so views are good. Nice club house. There is a workshop available. Propane on site. Good walking trails just outside the park. We intended to stay a week but stayed 2 weeks. We will most certainly be back. If there was shade I would have rated it higher. There is free wifi in the club house.

This well organized and maintained Escapee park served as an excellent base camp for exploring the southeast Arizona area. We were assigned to a spacious site on the end with some landscaping including a tree. My recommendation, if possible, avoid allowing the staff to arbitrarily assigning your RV to a site. Check the sites first and see what is available. There are plain gravel sites with just the utilities, and other sites with landscaping, pads and even a few with shade trees. Free WiFi is available, only, in the extremely large and well equipped clubhouse. WiFi can be purchased from a private provider. An open area on the west side of the park offers trail bike riding and desert shrub hiking. This place is dark at night because those foolish security lights are lacking here. The place is two miles from the I-10 rail corridor. When the wind is right the train horns can be heard, well. I don't know how anybody in town can get any sleep with all the trains going by. Some Engineers really like the sound of their horns. The rate is a reflecting of one month stay. We will return, again. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Motorhome.
