Check-in was a cluster. The office staff were not familiar with the sites and we're not sure what would accommodate our 39 ft. Motorhome. As a result, they suggested we drive around the park, select a site and return to register. They had no concept how inconvenient this would be. Fortunately for us, there was a couple in the office checking in that was more familiar with the park and they suggested a site that worked great. Our experience was further enhanced when they invited us to sit by their fire that evening! The sites are a bit funky with narrow concrete pads and trees. The electrical and water connections were odd and approximately 40 ft. behind the site. There was a lovely hike along the river - it was about 3 miles RT. We saw lots of bicyclists, but we didn't ride. The community dump site was adequate. There was an alarming lack of garbage cans. I only saw one dumpster that was poorly maintained and no other auxiliary cans. I used the restroom to wash my hands after picking up trash on the trail. It was clean and adequate. Overall, this was a good experience and given the area, probably the best option. Bring your mosquito repellant! They are vicious in the evening.
Super friendly staff and an enormous facility. Lots of fun activities. We are traveling cross country in a large Motorhome and trying to economize by staying at Passport America sites. This was our first real experience of an RV destination park. My one big complaint was that the overnight parking lot for transients was at the furthest point from all of the facilities. My husband pointed out that this was ridiculous if they wanted people to come back. He's right. They have a ton to offer, but in this mega sized park, you need to break out your car or bike to participate. It was easily 1/2 mile to the activity center. Still, it was clean, well run and with the phenomenal selection of things to do, worth visiting again!
We pulled into this park in the afternoon, after hours, and were greeted by a park host in a golf cart. He personally escorted us to our site and gave us an extensive amount of information on everything from hook ups to activities. My husband enjoys RC flying and there was a group meeting the next morning at a local field. The weather was spectacular. The facility was clean and spacious. Everyone was incredibly pleasant...so much so, we stayed a second night. The pool and spa were large and immaculate. Showers are required prior to entry. Pride emanated at this resort. The activities are too lengthy to list. The laundry facility was huge, spotless, in working order and inexpensive. We will definitely return! We used Passport America and they honored the discount.
We are traveling cross country in a large Motorhome and trying to economize using Passport America parks. We stopped at Hidden Beaches RV Park. It was well advertised. It was $22 a night with the PA discount, but had limited 50 amp service and didn't seem very appealing. We decided to try our luck just down the same street at the state park. They don't honor PA discounts after September 30th, but it was well worth the extra $8.00. The park is hosted by friendly volunteers. It was almost empty, so we were able to pull in an the back end of the park with an unobstructed view of the mountains and Colorado River. It was peaceful and beautiful. A great spot to sit in the sun and read or fly your RC plane. Not sure what it would be like in the summer, but November was spectacular. There is a community dump site as you leave, but power and water were ample. Wi-FI was a free code that was weak, but with so much beauty, who wants to be on the computer? If you want a rustic getaway for a little more money, this fits the bill!
We are traveling and trying to use our Passport America membership. Of all the places we have stayed, this one felt a little like bait and switch. The advertised rate for PA is $14.50. This park adds on a $3.00 processing fee and then another $2.00 when we arrived for 50 amp service. There is a large selection of parks in Benson and I would try another one the next time. That being said, the staff were incredibly friendly. The facilities were clean and well maintained. The pool was small, but heated and adequate. It was rustic. The site was mostly level, but the connections were quite a stretch and they require by county mandate an elevated poop shoot. If you don't have one of those contraptions, you have to covertly dump when your tank is full. Overall, it was satisfactory, but not on my list of must returns.
