This is my park of choice when passing through or visiting the area (close to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, etc.). It is the only park in Benson that has no freeway noise or sitting so close to the busy train tracks that sleep is impossible. It is an older KOA, sites and road are gravel, level and good space between sites. Easy in and out for any size rig, utilities are well placed and work properly. Wifi is better than most, and with a few small trees satellite connect is available. They now have a nice enclosed dog run which we always appreciate, though there is acres of open "dog walk" area which we use for off leash play. Owners are very helpful and friendly and they have a nice store stocked with the essentials. This isn't the paved pretty campground like the nearby Butterfield, but it doesn't have the train noise and is quiet and serene.

This park is located in a beautiful setting along the Bonito river. The sites and roads are gravel, most of the FHU/pull through sites require blocks + jacks for leveling, utilities are located at the front on some sites and many face each other, some so close that only one may put awnings out. W/E sites seem a better bet but are relatively short. Restrooms are clean but basically unfinished, showers have a very small changing area with no clothes hook or seat. Laundry room is a dark utility area between restrooms with only one washer and dryer (one oos) and very dirty. We managed to get satellite but cell service (Verizon) poor and their wifi in and out, minimal at best. The campground area is clean and well maintained and quite pleasant. A few dogs (some from the staff) wandering around off leash which made walking our dogs difficult at times. Unfortunately this seems to be one of the nicer campgrounds in the area, though did not visit any within the Ruidoso city area. If you decide to stay here strongly recommend you drive through and select a suitable campsite first.

This campground is located in a nice area with views of the mountains and a cool climate. The roads and sites are dirt/gravel and rough. Most sites are a bit tight getting into and some very close with patio areas facing each other. Much of the gravel/rock has been washed or pushed away from the sites which become a muddy bog during the frequent afternoon rains. Areas around the sites are trimmed weeds/local vegetation. The laundry room was dirty, basically a wood utility shed off level to the point the washer (front load) doors wouldn't close without lifting up on them. Utilities worked properly, no cable or off air TV, water pressure just a bit low. A reasonable place to stay but in the future will go to some of the nicer parks on the opposite side of the mountain (Alb.). On the positive side, the camp hosts are very nice and helpful.

This is an older KOA and the sites could use some work (leveling, better placement of utilities). Large rigs will have some trouble negotiating through the campground, roads are narrow and turns tight. Nice campground for the under 30' RVs. Do like having the pine trees throughout the campground, nice play areas for the kids, and newly added enclosed (and large) dog areas which we always appreciate. Staff went well out of their way to assist in a manual stow of our auto roof mount satellite antenna (stuck trying to find a satellite on the moon?). All in all a nice place to stay, will stay here again though wish they would upgrade the sites a bit. Recommend getting here during daylight - very difficult to find your way around at night.

We stopped here as an easy first night stay on the start of a 5 week trip. Very nice park, good site space, utilities well set and worked well, easy in and out. The enclosed dog park was well situated with plenty of room for ball play, always appreciate a good dog area. We have stayed at other campgrounds in the Flagstaff area and found this to be our park of choice. Will stay here again.

This really is a beautiful park in a nice location. But for us it was a "Stepford" experience. It is more of a show place for new high end class A's and tow vehicles than a campground. The sites are large with big, fairly level, concrete pads for parking, small lawns on each side, some with log cabin style patio covers and storage sheds. It really is not very dog friendly with minimal areas for dogs to relieve themselves. A big negative for us. We stayed here as a quick overnight between our primary destinations. If you are looking for a high end resort park, this is a good choice. We prefer campgrounds with a bit more diversity.

This campground is basically a large field/lawn which gives it a bit of a park like atmosphere. The sites are minimally defined, basically pull in next to your hook ups. Some sites are fairly level, others take bit of work. All hook ups worked well, WiFi was decent and had good satellite reception. A nice enclosed dog area very poorly located at the far end of the park with no "walk through" paths to get there. The ponds were in poor condition at best - shallow with overgrowth, white oily scum on top. Ponds require significant maintenance which these apparently do not get. Had reserved 2 nights (needed down time after a long trip) but they had no record of the 2nd night. They refunded the 2nd night after I found my confirmation email/number when we got set up. Would stay again if we needed a quick overnight stop.

This campground seems oriented toward young families and group get-togethers. Kids really seemed to enjoy both the pool and the creek which runs next to the campground. The sites were tight, not level but not extreme. Overall the campground is very crowded. Definitely not dog friendly, a few very small "open" areas which were suitable to serve as canine potty spots. Nice area across the road to walk the dogs, but a bit of a hike (take water). Very loud park, parties going on late at night - actually thankful that the AC was needed, worked as a sound block. Was going to use the campground showers but decided otherwise due to the high use (many tents packed tightly together). Not sure on cleanliness of the facilities. Would have preferred to stay in the NP campgrounds near by but too late making reservations.

Parked here as an over night stay on a cross country trip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sites level, all utilities worked properly. Nice enclosed dog run which we always appreciated. Did not use the rest rooms or laundry so can not comment. Nice store with supplies and collectible items.

A nice, friendly, well maintained park. All facilities worked properly, level sites. Acres of well groomed dog walk and play area, very pleasant! Great walking access to the Elvis attractions including the shuttle to Graceland. Stayed here mainly due to it's proximity to Graceland, but would stay again just for the RV park.

Nice KOA set among the trees. Staff friendly, but seemed a bit upset with hours worked and pay. All facilities worked well, nice laundry room. Great place for our small class C, but some of the larger 5th wheels and A's with toads had some difficulty getting around. Nice little enclosed dog run, always appreciate off leash ball throw time with the pups. Will stay here again.

A decent park for an overnight stay. Most full hook ups taken by extended stay individuals working in the area. Nice area around the park for walking the dogs. Sites without full hook ups nicely dispersed in the trees, full hook up sites basically a parking lot. Far enough from the freeway to minimize any noise and has a fuel station and restaurant within easy walking distance (didn't try the restaurant).

Would love to rate this park higher but the road and train noise made for a poor night's sleep. This is a nice, clean and friendly park which seems to be another converted KOA. Nice fenced dog area (gets a 9 rating). Our site was located closest to the freeway which was a result of our request to be close to the dog run. Stay as far back in the park as possible strongly recommended. Very easy freeway access, level sites, and large enough to accommodate most any size RV.

This is an old KOA park that is no longer part of the KOA franchise. It is the Riviera RV Park (I believe) and is located on the west bank of the Colorado River. Nice size sites with grass and trees, utilities work, friendly staff, great (a 10) fenced dog area. Backs up to the interstate so some road noise though not bad. Quite a few long term residents. All in all, a nice, friendly park. Made a nice overnight stop.

Needed a quick get-away (from Phoenix) so picked this park for a 5 day stay. Had a bay side site which backed us up to a chain link fenced walk way on the edge of the bay. Enjoyed the view - our little class C has a rear kitchen with a full window. Great dog walk areas - rate as a 10. They also have a small nice fenced dog area. Security in the park is excellent. Well located, within a few miles of the popular San Diego attractions. Downside is very little non-paved areas, basically a large parking lot with a few trees and some narrow grass areas. If you have kids, we were informed (rather vocal youngster) that Campland across the bay was the place to stay!

Needed a quick overnight stop and this park fit the bill nicely. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites are a bit tight and with (it seems) much of Yuma, significant number of long term residents. The dog walk area gets a 9 (not fenced so no 10), open to a huge dry wash. Just off I-8, some traffic noise but not an issue. Be aware they take only cash or checks - seemed a bit odd in this day and age.

This park was an old KOA (built in the 60's per front desk) which appears in the progress of upgrade. All in all, nice sites (fairly level, good space, good hook ups), good views, clean and friendly park. Wireless a bit weak but good Verizon 3G so used our own MiFi. Can't recommend the dog walk area, a cactus land mine. Had a few nose needle pulling session. In all fairness, was warned during check in to watch for cactus and desert critters in the area. Do like the area and proximity to old Taos (not too close though easy access/distance). Will stay here again.

Nice clean park, gravel sites, basically a large flat area with hook ups and picnic tables. Friendly staff. No designated/enclosed pet area but used an open large fence enclosed RV space at the back of the park - worked great and the owners had no issues with us using it. This park was perfect for what we needed, a nice, comfortable place to overnight on our trip.

Enjoyed our stay at this park. Sites area gravel, good size, many trees and park like areas, a bit of a community feel to the park (which I generally don't care about but works in this park). Nice views of the red rock canyons and cliffs. Good mix of RVs and sites. $2.00 per night per dog fee, but nice enclosed dog area so no complaints. Close to the city of Sedona, easy ride on a bike or (in our case) scooters. This park does fill up, even in the off season reservations are prudent.

Location/scenery of this park is nice. Stayed here in a small (21') motor home. Sites in our area of the park (upper area near the tenting sites) were dirt, most fairly level. Seems our site was originally a pull-through that they split into two (had another MH directly behind us). Dogs and cats (local residents? collars but no tags) wandering loose made it very difficult to walk our dogs or be outside with them. No designated pet areas. Large rig sites seemed rather tight. All hook ups functioned properly, did not use any of the facilities.

Our stay here was most enjoyable, great staff and wonderful site in the upper area among the trees. Beautiful location with mountain views. Great dog run, 2 acre enclosed area next to horse pastures. Restrooms and laundry well maintained and very clean. Water pressure a bit low in the showers is my only criticism. All hook ups worked well, decent Wi-Fi speed. Will stay here again.

I have a hard time classifying this as a campground. Most the residents appeared to be long term, the campground has the feel and look of an old trailer park. Oddly enough, this was the only park we were asked the condition of our older MH (1997, fully reconditioned last year including exterior paint and trim)prior to allowing check in. The average age of the RVs in the park seemed much older than ours and rather run down in condition. Sites are gravel and very tight. Tried using the dog run but one the the residents was there with four large (shep mix) and very aggressive dogs. All hook ups worked properly. Stayed here only because it was close to a visit destination and listed as a "Good Sam" park.

Sites were level, all utilities worked but had two issues. 1. You have to check in at one of the gaming desks in the casino (seems the casino owns the franchise). I was pushed aside until all gambling patrons were taken care of. 2. Big issue - thought I might use the shower/bathroom facilities. Walked in and ran out. Have never seen toilets so filthy (and I worked in a gas station during my college days). Shower floors, sinks just disgusting, no excuse for this. Gambling is obviously the concern here (didn't know it was attached to a casino when we made reservations) with no usable facilities for the campground folks.

Stayed here off season in mid October. Had no other campers in the lower campground (electric only sites). Wonderful site next to the creek, good size site, many trees, enjoyed the two nights we stayed. Rarely use campground restrooms, but due to cleanliness used their facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed here in a small motor home, large rigs may have difficulties negotiating the lower campground. Will stay here again to spend more time exploring the surrounding area.
