The park has easy access and we had no trouble checking in and pulling into our pull through site. We spent 2 nights here. One night under Passport America and one night with Escapee discount. Office man was friendly, park was clean and quiet. WiFi worked for email and web browsing. We would stay here again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park for an overnighter. All sites have concrete pads. Close to interstate and quiet. Only problem is the dusty gravel interior roads. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small park that is great for an overnight stay. Mostly pull thru sites are concrete and level. We were able to stay hooked up with our 42' 5th wheel. Sites are a little close together but we had no problem putting our slides out. Free cable and wi-fi. No picnic table or fire rings. No pool but does have a laundry room. Off leash dog park. Accepts Passport America. We would definitely stay here again. We had no problem booking our reservation by phone and office staff was on duty, friendly and helpful. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park about 5 miles from I-20. Sites are close together. Has free cable TV and WiFi. WiFi did not have a strong signal. Nice fenced dog area. Verizon service was 3 bars. Sites were long and I did not have to unhook my car. Roads in the park are wide and easy to navigate. Office is only open for a couple of hours in the mornings and in the evenings. If you use Passport America, they only accept cash. Would stay here again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

To me this is the perfect overnight stop. Inexpensive, good WiFi, full hookups, and easy in and out pull-throughs. It shows as usually every site is taken. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

We really liked this little park. It was quiet with what appeared to be minimal "live aboards." Nice level, pull through site with picnic table. We stayed for 3 nights and would definitely stay again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nobody in office you have to call a number and hope they answer. Also propane is only available fo 90 min. early in the AM and again in late afternoon. Campground is bare bones and not worth the investment. We stayed overnight but next time we'll look for other location. WiFi was weak and in and out and cable was are minimum number of stations. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Six exits for Meridian and this one had the campground and a small Shell station. All other exits have access to fuel and restaurants.

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.

For directions, follow those on the web site and they will get you there. Interior roads are gravel. Pull thru center pads are cement. Utilities worked good as did cable. No interior lighting so its dark at night. There is a fair size fence dog run with a high fence right behind the office. Appears to be a nursing home next door, and you can walk dogs behind its back fence. Staff was not there when we arrived, but we called and he was there is 2 minutes; and gave us good advice on how to get back to highway. There is no pool, playground, store, etc. This is a bare bones park, but okay for an overnight. 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.

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.
