Nice level sites with cement patios and picnic tables. They can fit any size rigs easily. Quiet location with good pull-through sites or back-ins with shade trees. Fabulous Wi-Fi, the best we've encountered from Washington State to southeast Texas! The owners are very accommodating and have lots of suggestions on what to see in the area. We made sure to plan our route back north so we could stay here again, and will be doing the same thing on our way south this fall.

Clean well-maintained park with paved roads and sites, with picnic table and medium-sized pine tree for each pull-through site. Easy in/out for our big-rig 42-foot triple-axle 5th wheel. One free Tengo Internet password given out per site, which can lead to some tension since we are a two-computer family. Internet service was quite slow most of the time, and the park should think about upgrading the bandwidth (as should many others we have stayed at). Smaller fenced gravel dog run, with empty field and dry wash across street if you want to get some exercise with your dog. Heated pool and spa were clean and inviting, washrooms/showers/laundry room were all clean and well maintained. Free observatory shows every night for registered guests were enjoyable and interesting. Located in the heart of Benson, near Wal-Mart and other shops/restaurants, central to Tombstone, Bisbee, Kartchner Caverns, etc. However, as others have commented, the train noise is pretty disruptive at night, with at least 7 or 8 trains happily sounding horns. Not sure why they need to be doing this continuously from one end of the valley to the other, especially when the crossings in the town are all auto-controlled with lights and gates, but they seem to be quite happy to do it with some enthusiasm, especially when two trains are passing each other. It's a nice park, but we will not be staying here again due to that problem. Price reflects weekly rate including taxes.

Clean campground in quiet location off highway on a hill overlooking the city. Roads and sites are gravel with two cement strips running the length of the sites for the RV wheels to rest on. The gravel is raked to perfection every day but can be a bit dusty. There are a few trees in the park, but most sites appear to be unshaded. Pull-through sites are very narrow on the hillside with no patio space or picnic table and just enough room to squeeze in a small table to put your BBQ on beside the RV, but not much room for chairs. Easy to maneuver a big rig in/out of site and park. Free Tengo Wi-Fi passwords were happily given to us to accommodate both of our computers. Friendly staff and good service. Fairly large fenced dog run, but it is deep sand and the dogs kick up a lot of dust in it. There is a fairly quiet side road the park is located on that is okay for walking them on. Washrooms/showers/laundry room all clean and well maintained. The pool was closed, presumably for the season. This was a good park to spend a couple of days while we explored the area but would not be a destination park for us. Price reflects the 10% KOA Kamper discount on a pull-through 50-amp, cable, Wi-Fi site.

We have four requirements when choosing a park: Good internet service; good dog exercise area; clean grounds/facilities; and big-rig friendly, meaning easy in/out of park and sites. Wi-Fi: Tengo Internet, only 1 free password per site, bandwidth grossly inadequate for number of sites, extremely frustrating because of slow and sometimes non-existent service. Dog Walk: One tiny fenced area provided in park, again inadequate for this size of park and number of dogs. There is an empty field across the busy 4-lane highway in front of the park, but no sidewalk on park side, so you must cross street at your own risk. Cleanliness: Excellent. Garbage picked up at site in morning. Washrooms/laundry rooms clean. Showers clean but small and hard to maneuver in for an active person, can't imagine anyone with mobility issues being able to comfortably use one. Big-Rig Friendly: Yes. Easy to navigate around all roads and sites in park. Comments: Nicely landscaped with mature palm trees, fruit trees, lawn, and pavement. No dust or gravel in park. RV sites are interspersed amongst permanent park models. Three pools and two spas are clean and well maintained. Free exercise/weight room, horseshoes, bocci ball available. Park is located in Palm Springs/La Quinta area in good location for shopping (Costco across street, Wal-Mart close by, and many other shops, restaurants, etc., to choose from, with golf courses galore nearby). Lots of activities for those interested. However, the Wi-Fi needs to be upgraded. The bandwidth is grossly inadequate for the number of sites in this park and is slow at best, non-existent a lot of the time. This is not the only park we have been in that needs to realize that they would have a lot more people staying longer at their parks if they provided good internet service. It is not a matter of entertainment only, and many of us (especially full-timers) need it to work so we can live this lifestyle. Just my two cents.

Clean and well-managed park in a nice quiet area of rural properties and farms, yet close to downtown area with UFO museum and other extraterrestrial-related sites. Excellent Wi-Fi service, pet friendly (we have 3 big dogs). Owners go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and gave lots of good information on surrounding areas for site-seeing, etc. Previous review mentioned agricultural smell, but there was no evidence of this during our week-long stay here. We hope to come back on our way home from Texas in March and will be staying here again.

Big-rig pull-through site was very tight and required a lot of jockeying to get into, plus slides took up the width of the site so it was difficult to squeeze between them and the nice tall cedar shrubs that provided a good deal of privacy to most sites. If the park was full it would be very congested as they have squeezed in extra sites at every possible angle. The park borders busy 264th Street (Aldergrove International U.S.-Canada border crossing about 10 minutes away), and there was quite a bit of traffic noise throughout the night. The manager allowed our three large dogs to stay but stipulated they had to be taken out of the park when not in the RV. The campground is located on a dead-end road, so it was a good road to walk the dogs, but there was nowhere to let them have some off-leash exercise. Washrooms and showers were clean but cold. Showers were 25 cents for 5 minutes; good-sized laundry room with about 6 washers and driers available. Located about 5 minutes from Aldergrove which has a great Vietnamese Pho restaurant across from the Asian market on Fraser Highway with cheap prices and fabulous food. We used it as a stopover the night before crossing into the U.S. We would stay here again if we had a smaller rig and no pets because of the convenient location.

This is a super pet-friendly park and has really wonderful tent sites located in the back of the park in the woods. We needed a pull-through site due to the length of our rig (over 40 feet), and they are located at the front of the park under huge Douglas fir trees. Because we were there in November, there were only about 4 other RVs there, so we had 2 or 3 empty spaces on each side of us, which was great. The pull-throughs are quite close together and have no privacy because the big fir trees have been limbed quite high, and there is no other landscaping until you get back to the tent sites, which are very private and separated with natural vegetation of salal, etc. We really enjoyed this campground with our big dogs, but some people may not have liked the fact that the sites were quite wet with all the rain, and there were a myriad of fir needles on the ground everywhere, which did end up getting in the RV regardless of door mats, boot-wipers, etc. The washrooms are coded-entry and were very clean with good shower facilities. There is a small store with a gas/diesel bar and propane available, as well as free Wi-Fi. We would definitely stay here again. The rate includes the state tax.

Easy access off highway, big-rig friendly and navigable, clean and nicely landscaped park. Staff friendly and helpful, and we were guided to our spot. Unfortunately, the hot tub was closed for repairs the night we stayed here, but free Wi-Fi is offered, as well as a free continental breakfast and newspaper each morning. The campground is located on the opposite side of highway from beach. We noted there is a pedestrian/car tunnel under the highway that gets you to the beach side, but when we saw that the beach appears to be a good 300 meters lower in elevation than the road, we didn't have time to find out how to actually gain access to the beach (I presume there is a hefty set of stairs somewhere along the road!) We stayed overnight in one of the 45-foot pull-through spots in the second row up from the highway where there was a fair bit of traffic noise from the road. Although there is a nice fenced dog area for smaller dogs, it is really not big enough for exercising our big dogs. We needed better beach access for exercising them in a safe environment off the highway, so we just stayed one night. If we didn't have the dogs and were looking for a nice central location to explore this area from, we would not hesitate to stay here again.
