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.
Good location to vist other area places

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.
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.
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.Undo

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.

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.

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.

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.Undo

This park is spacious and the people are super friendly. All sites are built up a mountain and all have a stunning sunset view of the Dragoon Mountains. A swimming pool would make this place spectacular. The office personnel could not have been nicer. We've stayed in many parks and you get everything you pay for here. The price shown does not include the electric bill which was nominal. I would live in this park. It's wonderful. The town of Bensen is charming and has a small Super Walmart and a very nice Safeway with great produce, and ACE Hardware store. Again, you can sit out on your patio and everyone waves as they go by in the golf cart or car. It is very, very pet friendly. Make sure to visit Kartchner Caverns when you stay here.

We found this to be an excellent RV Park for an overnight stay. It is a typical Escapee Co-Op Park for members only and a few sites with full hook-ups become available at times for traveling members. I recommend Escapee members check-in here first before taking a chance with one of the other Benson RV Parks, which are plagued by train noise. Our back-in site, 50 Amp, was extremely spacious and long enough for us to park the tow behind the Motorhome. We asked for a site with a view and we got one. The clubhouse is a state of the art community center, magnificent, and very large. The only thing missing here is a pool. The paved access roads are wide like a city street and the sites are well covered with ideal gravel. There are no bothersome street lights here so it appears to be an excellent place for star gazing. The place is far enough away from I-10 so traffic noise is non-existing. The passing trains can be heard. We stayed here for one night and look forward to a future stay for a longer period of time.

The rate quoted is the monthly rate. The sites are quite large. The people walking by and while driving around love to wave to you. We did not partake of activities. They have a 4 o'clock social hour where we went once but it was not as in other Escapees parks. We did not go back. We expected a more friendly group judging from our experience at the other parks. Apparently the people waving and stopping to talk are not the same ones at social hour. But we do like the park and would return. We camped at Saguaro Co-op Park (Escapee Only) in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
