There may be friendlier park owners but we have not met them. Fairly new owners (husband and wife and we met wife) of an older park that they are upgrading. The have put in a new building containing individual rooms each with restroom/shower (immaculate tile floors/walls and glass door shower and pedestal sink!), a sizeable laundry facility, and a meeting space aimed at caravans. Wi-Fi was speedy (nearly 3 mb tested speed) and cable TV worked well. Limited channels (2-13) but more that adequate for a couple of days stay. Apparently the owner has added Wi-Fi repeaters to provide excellent service. Owner was very helpful with information about the area in the event we wanted to stay longer. Spaces appeared to be double-wide and our rig was level when we pulled in. Utilities were appropriately placed and sewer was close to ground for thorough dump. Nice views of the surrounding countryside.
We tow a jeep behind our fifth wheel, and all the pull-thoughs are long enough to accommodate our entire rig. Full hook-ups at every site and the check-in is easy. Just choose a site and owner comes around in the evening to check-in and collect fee. We would not have known there were trains nearby except we saw them. Also, the road into the park off Highway 54, is gravel but short and in good condition. It's a very, very quiet park. A prior reviewer complained about noise and the road! We have stayed here before and plan on staying again on our snowbird journeys. Wi-Fi is included in the price, no log-in is required, and had excellent connection/speed. So, log-in when you arrive if you like, without waiting for a code. No cable TV, but was only an overnight stop for us. Immaculately maintained park and a very nice owner.
We stayed here three days and the sites were very large with ample room to park our jeep and our truck. No train or freeway noise but an occasional small plan landing at a nearby airport. Not enough for concern. Wi-fi (free) was worth its cost: nothing! Had a very difficult time staying connected and got dial-up speeds at times. Owner said he was going to have a T1 line installed the next week and given his integrity I believe him. Park is immaculately maintained and this was our second visit to the park on our snowbird journey home from Arizona to Minnesota. Would definitely stay here again even though it is not the thriftiest park we've stayed in. The price included an AARP discount but an add-on for sewer (our choice) and cable TV made the price what it was.
We winter at this park (third year in a row) and this year stayed from 1/6-4/6. The nightly rate of $17 is based on a monthly rate of $435 and electricity (meter) of approximately $100/month. Wi-fi (Tengo Internet) is $85.95 for three months in addition to camping fees. The sites are double wide and the park is laid out very well. Has a wonderful clubhouse that we can use for dinners with our friends or other activities. There is a large barn with other activities and entertainment. Of all the parks we've stayed in, we like this one the best and we've travelled extensively. We easily park our jeep and our diesel truck on the site with our fifth wheel with lots of room left over. Benson is well situated on I-10 between Tucson and Sierra Vista which is south of I-10 on highway 90. We used to stay "down the hill" in Benson but the noise from the trains and freeway was very noticeable. No noise at Cochise Terrace "up on the hill". Lots to do in the area!
We stayed one week and the weekly rate was $195, with full hook ups and Wi-Fi included. The park is immaculate and laid out well, but the sites are fairly close to one another as our street side window was not very far from the curb side of the rig next to us. There was ample room for our jeep (which we tow behind our fifth wheel), and our long box diesel truck on our site. Would definitely stay here again but not for an entire winter season. Easy on/off to I-17 and centrally located to Sedona, Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Jerome, etc.
The main building which contains the office, showers, restrooms, TV room, lounge, etc., looked virtually brand new and is spotless! Staff was very helpful and only charged us one night for our sewer hook-up in lieu of using the dump station on our way out (we stayed 3 nights). Very quiet campground even though ii is located close (convenient!) to I-40. We were lucky to get a spot as we did not have a reservation and the second night we were here, it was full. If full, you would have to go down the road a little at twice the price. We have a 32' fifth wheel with a jeep in tow and the site easily accommodated our rig and vehicles. Paid $12.95 for a week of Wi-Fi which had great connection/speed. Would definitely stay here again!
