Stayed here overnight. Couldn't find anything available on I-40 so took the quick ride up to I-44. Easy access, easy and short ride back to I-40. Well worth the slight detour. Clean, very pretty RV Park. Site was level and cement, with good space between. Has full hookups. We have 40 ft 5th wheel and had no trouble with access in and out or in park. Nice place and would stay here again. Would be excellent place to enjoy Oklahoma City events, museums, etc.
Park has easy access off I-10. Had a decent, level site with a cement patio area, but parked on grassy, gravel area. There is a very friendly owner and a good price. Some workers were staying here and a few that looked to have sites for the season. People were quiet but the place is sandwiched between a trucking company and I-10 so there is noise, however our white noise machine blocked it all out. Would stay again on an overnight.
This was an easy access to I-10 for an overnight stay. It was quiet. Had a pull through with 50 amp, water, sewer. No cable but the TV antenna worked fine. Not many campers this time of year. Some workers are staying long term. If the place had been full it would have been very tight between sites. There is no concrete. The picnic tables were very rough. Has lots of trees. Did not use the store, food service nor facilities, but all were clean. Found the owners to be very nice and very helpful. We would stay again.
This is an Encore park. It is actually just outside Sebastian even though it has a Vero Beach address. It is a mix of park models and RVs. Pros: Very clean. Very active snowbird community. Very secure. Has huge dog run/park area and most owners do a good job keeping it clean. Loads to do on and off site. Close to beaches. Very friendly. Cons: Runs along side I-95. Constant noise at sites 199 thru 280. Further into park is quieter but hard to get as there are mostly returning snowbirds and park models taking those spots. Sites are small and packed in closely. For stays under a month pay $3 day "resort fee" which is really a fee to cover the electric even tho they don't say that. All have cement pads but most are cracked and not level. This resort is pricey as are most coastal city resorts but this is actually nicer and even tho sites are small they are larger than most coastal resorts in this price range. Stayed 9 days. Would stay again.
Virtually all sites with pads require waiting list. Locked up by return renters. Facilities were older but clean. Fair number of activities. Grassy sites are not level. Muddy in rain and have no sewer hook-ups. Honey wagon comes twice weekly. 5 rating is because dog leash policy is not enforced at all! Dogs running loose all over the place in the grass site loops. My husband got bitten by a dog whose owner left the park for the day. Miles from amenities. High crime area (all buildings on the reservation have bars and metal mesh over windows and doors), and park has no gate or security. Would not go back.
Where to begin? Beautiful grounds. Roomy, private sites. Owner has many great ideas. Too many in fact. There is no pool. The website, brochures and ads say there are two pools. There are none! Under construction for at least two years with no end in sight. It was a cold year so we didn't care but were irritated at the false advertising. There are at least five different projects underway and none are completed: arts & craft building, water feature grist mill, site expansion, second entrance, pools, etc. Not much in way of events or activities going on. Pricey for what is offered. Laundry facilities clean but expensive. Took mine to laundromat where they washed, dried and folded it for only $2 more than Williston Crossings machines would have cost me. Might stay again maybe for a week or a stop over but not long term again, at least until things gets finished up.
Clean. Quiet. Friendly. Pool (unheated). Wide paved streets. One pet rule. Park appears to be in transition. Many original older double and single wide mobiles. Looks like as original owner sites open up they are either sold or rented to RVers. Good location for jumping off to lots of other actvities including Giant Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Good restaurants. Historic downtown. Golf. Bark Park nearby. Stayed 10 days. Didn't like unheated pool and a few permanent resident don't keep up their sites and trailers. Would stay again.
I would like to be able to review this park but after attempts to contact them with questions through email and telephone messages and after receiving no response to either, I made reservations at another resort instead. In my opinion, if a resort cannot take the time to respond to a customers query by email or phone then they don't want or don't need the business. This type of inattention certainly makes me suspect as to the type of service and care taken of the park overall. They lost this customer. "We did not stay in this park".
We stayed in Butterfield RV Resort for Feb and Mar. The place is spotless. They have entertainment, pot lucks, activities etc. Very quaint park. Staff keeps this place so clean it's amazing. It is not a gated park even though there is a cement wall around it. Anyone can enter at any time and apparently they do. There was a robbery of a video store in an adjoining plaza and the get-away was through the Butterfield RV Resort. A couple of times young men were caught jumping the wall and walking through sites as if to see what was available for the taking. We didn't like the fact that some of the repeat guests seemed to think the place was their own and really took on an attitude of rude bossiness and control toward the guests. It was detrimental to the overall good nature of the place. New management came in while we were there as well. That started out fine but there was a deterioration of attitude. The new Manager became snappish and unfriendly toward customers. Her husband inserted himself into things, even though he wasn't hired as manager, and really has no people skills. We heard him bad mouthing staff (one against the other)several times. The atmosphere became too heavy handed for us. Benson is at an altitude of over 4000 feet and it was cold and windy much of the time we were there. We actually had snow one night. While the snow was perhaps an anomaly, repeat visitors told us that the cold weather is normal. Not what we were seeking as a winter get away. In addition even though it is no reflection on the resort, there's not much going on in Benson. In fact, there is nothing going on in Benson so most activities and sight-seeing are about an hour away or more in any direction, with the exception of Kartchner Caverns. We spent a lot of time driving to other places. We will not be returning to Butterfield RV Resort based on this experience.
Very tight sites here even though they say Big Rig capable. We had a pull-thru with a 40' rig and couldn't park the tow vehicle in front of the fifth wheel trailer. The whole place smells of dog urine. Too many residents with dogs and not enough space to run them. With windows open the smell was terrible. The smell of sewers was bad too. That could be because of the tight cramming in of too many sites and violations of sewer hookup rules. Many year 'round residents in old run down, worn out camping trailers. This place can't decide if it's an RV Resort or a trailer park for low income residents. Managers keep the grounds clean (except for the dog urine which they attempt to spray for but can't keep up with) and facilities are clean but old campers and sites full of stored boxes of "stuff" are a real eye sore and detractor. I don't know if these older trailers are legacy from the previous park owners but there is no enforcing of the current rules about sewer connections, air conditioners (which hang out of windows of these older trailers), junk stored on the site, charcoal barbecue grills versus gas, chimineas, etc. This place is pricey for what it is. The 24 hour guarded gate is nice but it is completely incongruent with the overall look and feel of the park and is not worth the price overall. Would not recommend and will not stay again.
