This was a great place for an overnight stay on our journey south. It is a small park but everything was neat, clean and accessible. All sites have level cement pads and are pull thru. The electric & cable are on lighted posts and are well protected from the elements. There are two private heated bathrooms with showers that have plenty of room and dry space to move around and dress. The water pressure was great! The wifi worked well- never dropped once during our stay. The cable TV was also good. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, clean, small campground. I had 3 interactions with the owner - 2 on the phone and 1 in person - and he was pleasant, helpful and professional. It's best to call for reservations. They take Passport America but require you to pay in cash if you want the discount. If you arrive between 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, the office is locked and you have to call the owner. He'll give you your lot number and you just go to the office after 4:30 am to pay. Sites are pull-thru with level concrete pads. Sites are angled so you don't have a clear view of the rig next to you. Interior roads are wide and turns are big rig friendly. There's a nice big dog park behind the office. Water pressure was strong - bring pressure regulator - wifi signal was pretty good and cable was great. It's only 4 miles from the interstate in a fairly quiet area at night. The park itself was quiet and we had a great night's sleep. There are train tracks nearby but we heard a train only once during the day. This is a hidden gem of a park. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Level concrete full hookup sites, free wifi, laundry facility. Manager in office limited hours in morning and evening, but readily available via phone to assign site that you can then pay for when they are in the office. Propane sales. Many fulltime residents. Rate reflects GS discount. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

We plan all our trips out, the majority of time relying on Rvparkreviews honest posts. This time the reviews failed.

I had called a few hours ahead of time to secure a reservation. The owners first words were asking if I belonged to some club. I told him no but I have Good Sam, etc. He then hehawed around and informed me he had one place for me. I told him we should be there around 3 or 3:30. We arrived with a few waiting and few following. He did not inform anyone he didn't open until 4:30, so we each had to call. It would have been nice if he would have left a note on the door or told us over the phone our lot number.

When I did call after arriving he mumbled off the lot number and was getting ready to hang up by saying "settle up later" I repeated the lot number before he hung up and his response was "excuse you I am talking". I found him rude and brash.

None of the other motorhome owners were pleased either about having to call him and get an answering machine.

The campground sits on a hillside, no shade and picnic table was rotted wood.

The owner must be there just from 7:30-8 AM and 4:30-6 PM, according to propane sign.

The loud trains woke us up from 3-4 AM. Loud dogs barking at 2 AM.

I noticed a new campground being built before you reach this one, so hopefully it will be more customer friendly. I will not stop here again and never rely on just a couple posts. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

I read crime is escalating in Meridian so I didn't feel to secured in this noisy campground.

Stayed here 2 nights in a motorhome. Most sites are pull-thru. Level with concrete pads. Appears to be about 1/2 and 1/2 long term residents and transients (like us). Pull-thru sites are angled so you are not looking directly into your neighbors RV. Excellent water pressure. Bring you pressure regulator. We would stay here again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the Meridian website for attractions. The Peavey visitor center is no longer open though.

Very easy check in process. Host was very nice. Nice gravel roads and good concrete pad. Laundry was $1.50 for a washer and $1.00 for the dryer (45 minutes dry time). We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a first class bare bones park. Easy access, gravel roads,, concrete level pads, somewhat close together. Very friendly owner. Perfect for overnight stay or short visit. Good cable, excellent wifi, excellent 50amp power. Nice dog park. We stayed in a 45ft motorhome, would definitely stay again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

A few pot holes at the entrance but nice level gravel roads inside. Cement pad, grass in between, picnic table by each site. Easy maneuverability, everything looks very clean and well cared for, individual bathrooms with a shower and sink, friendly office, nice and clean small dog park, close to shopping. Great stay. Would stay again but will ask for a site further away from the road. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Win-Dixie a few miles down the road

Another small park for a brief stay of 1 or 2 nights on your way somewhere else. We stayed here on the last night of our 10 day vacation. Arrived on a Sunday right about lunchtime. Office was closed, but there was info on the door telling us what site to park in and to come back to the office after 4:30 to complete registration. Concrete Pads. Small park, clean & quiet. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Shell station directly across the road that has diesel and the park had several big rigs in it. Not far off the highway, either.

This is a very nice park that is far enough from the freeway to provide real peace and quiet. The proprietor was professional and friendly. The sites are very level and easy to get into and out of. The rate we received was an excellent value. Definitely on our list of parks we would return to. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an ok place to land if in the area. But anyone rating this park as a 10 is damaging the integrity of this site. It's nice enough and easy pull through for big rigs. All gravel and grass. Lots of walking area. Off the freeway. It's just what we needed. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great for an overnight or a few days to tour Meridian. Easy on an off from I-20, just a few miles North. Good gravel roads and very level concrete pads. Check in was a breeze and if you get there before 4;30 read the door for your assigned site. Friendly staff and a very neat and clean park. A bit small with only about 30 or 35 site, but normally here during the week so no problems. The site might appear to be a little tight, but we had no problem with a four slide 45' motorhome. We try to overnight here everytime we are in the area. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for a quick overnight stay while traveling from Townsend, TN to Louisiana. This campground was a great choice. Pull thru sites with concrete pads, very clean and nice grass area. The sites were close together but my slides had plenty of room and it was easy to get in and out of the site. The power held both AC units on a very hot evening and night. Water pressure was good. They allow Passport America but I could not find my current card, the one I had was expired so I had to settle for the Good Sam discount. For one night, and after driving for several hours I wasn't going to argue and this campground was much better than Walmart and running the generator all night to stay cool.

Very nice facility. Wonderful dog run even though it needed a bit of mowing. Check in was terrific. Sites were very level with full hook ups and 24 cable stations! The entire area was very clean. The sites were a bit close and that's the only negative thing I'd say about this nice place. Great value. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.
