This is a nice campground. They have some nice long pull thru sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. They have 50 Amp FHU available. The park is older but clean and tidy. ATT & Verizon work well. Plenty of clear sky for satellite set up. Restrooms are dated but clean. No train or Hwy noise. Rate is C2C with $4 for "Resort fee" and $2 for 50Amp. Nice views from the Park. Stayed before and will stay again. Lots to see and do in the area. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was conveniently located to the many Cochise County attractions. People were friendly and the sites large and level. Could use more greenery and less gravel but this is very common for the area & size of park.
They were having some water issues while we were there. Park staff very good at keeping everyone informed and did everything they could to minimize any inconvenience. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Everything is gravel, so potential dust. There is a nice pool, staff was great, sites were not quite level but easy to block up one side. WiFi only in clubhouse. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Benson is not much of a town for tourism, but there is plenty to do in the area. Within an hour or less: Tucson, Saguaro NP, Tombstone historic town, Kartchner Cavern SP & Amerind Museum. Also, for birders, there are numerous excellent sites.

Benson does have excellent groceries, hardware and Mexican restaurants.

Vickie greeted us at the office upon check-in, very pleasant and friendly. Was escorted to our site #166, nice location with ample space for rig. Nice level sites, all gravel roads and sites. Great view of the mountains from our site. Laundry facility nice. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

If you like Mexican food I strongly recommend Mi Casa in Benson. Small building and set back off highway but what a great place to eat. Service was excellent and the food was awesome. Be sure to try their carrot cake......delicious.

This is an older park in the high desert - all gravel with quite a few trees, a small clubhouse and pool, good Verizon reception. It's a little rough around the edges, as is the nearby old railroad town of Benson. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they host frequent small events such as a homemade chili lunch and craft group. The security gate is out of order, apparently. Free cable hook-up is a plus. Very quiet despite being close to the highway. Sites are spacious. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Benson has is an old railroad town with some history. The visitors center is excellent. Plenty of good shopping for basics, including a Walmart. Bisbee is the reason I stayed in the area - about 40 minutes south - a beautiful old West town with loads of character and creative energy. Tombstone is a fun stop on the way.

Nice park with spacious sites. Nice walking trails and an inviting pool. A great place to stay and do day trips to nearby sites, such as Tombstone. We arrived after the "snow-bird" season had concluded, so it was not a problem getting a space. From October through April it could be crowded. During the winter months, more activities are offered. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

You can spend a day or more in Tombstone, as well as seeing the sites in Bisbee. If you like the outdoors, you,will probably like this area, as there are lots of opportunities to hike and explore.

This family-run place worked perfectly for our late arrival. The folks were extremely nice on the phone and the park was well-tended and clean with discrete lights on lampposts. We picked up a late arrival packet and left the cash in the morning--total of $28.19 for 30 amp service, water and waste hookup. They have a pool, hot tub and clubhouse if you stay longer than we did. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

When we visited the campground it was a week after a flooding rain and the grounds were not in the best of shape. Flood or not there needs to be some site beautification. There are trees but they are small and sparse. Don't count on them giving much shade. There are gravel lots with a picnic table. The bathrooms and showers are clean as well as the pool and hot tub area. There is a clean small club room which is used for functions. Free WIFI is available there, but if you want it in your camper, you will pay extra. There is also a $3 a day extra "resort" fee. I really don't consider this place a resort! The coin laundry is clean and is complete with ironing board, a folding table and a rack to hold coat hanger items. The lady who is in charge is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about area attractions. The park is located near historic Tombstone, The Amerian Museum (a must), Tucson, ghost towns, Cochise Stronghold, and a cavern. I didn't give a higher score because there needs to be more landscaping. It is was not very inviting when we first drove in. I would stay there again. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

An Encore park, so there was an additional $3/day charge. First day I was there there was only 1 function which was an ice cream social for $1.50 per person. Second day, a wine social that was bring your own wine and snack! No WiFi at site unless one is willing to pay extra. Road traffic and train noise. Trains with whistles blowing throughout the night. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Some 50Amp. Heated pool and Hot tub. Most sites are pull thru. Friendly staff and coffee in the mornings. Train noise is noticeable, but not as bad as most parks in Benson where the trains run thru the center of town and really blow their horn there. Certainly worth a stop to see all that is in the area. WiFi is Tengo so you have to pay for it. Not what you think of as an Encore Park, but maybe they will do some upgrades. Rate is C2C premier so only the $3 Resort fee. Resort!!!??? Not really a resort but a very nice Park. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate per night is for Passport America users. Regular rate is around $35. Regardless, it's a great park with very nice facilities. Beautiful pool area and it's heated, so we were able to use it in the middle of February. Workers were very friendly and stayed past their office closing hours to help get us checked in. We needed propane and this park doesn't have any, but they gave us directions to another park where we could get it. They even waited for us to return, so they could escort us to our campsite. Lots of cable channels available, nice rec room, kid and pet-friendly, and very clean. Only about 20 minutes to Tombstone, so a good place to stay if planning to visit. We will stay here again if in the area. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Friendly staff. Easy drive to Tombstone. Desert park so dirt and rock, not paved roads. Bathrooms clean and working. We stayed under RPI so $13 per night. Would stay again if going through Benson. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an Encore park, and we spent a week here under our Thousand Trails membership. The park was super clean and wide open, sites marked by corral type fencing. The staff like to stagger the rigs if they aren't full, so you don't have another camper right next to you. We had stayed the previous night at a park in town, and the train whistles were constant and horrible. At Valley Vista we weren't bothered at all. Also, no problem with highway noise. This is not a park I'd want to spend the winter at, but we enjoyed it enough to spend another week when we head back home. If you like books, there is a very well stocked used book store in town. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Super friendly staff in a very friendly atmosphere. Good sized pull through and full hook up. Cable TV is excellent, so is the Internet but a little expensive at $5.95 a day. Lots of things to do in the area...Bisbee, Tombstone. We camped at Valley Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.
