This has been such a wonderful RV RESORT for our family. We’ve made lots of great memories and new friendships within a short time. The Management teams are heedful and passionate about the required upkeep of the resort, which we can appreciate … because it’s a lot of work! We are grateful to them for doing such an incredible job. ????
We’ve observed other’s testimonies living the RV’ERS lifestyle, while we learned quickly that those people who are respectful and abide by the simple rules of the resort have found that people do truly care, and they have a willingness about them to help others where they can. Therefore, the necessary responsibilities on their behalf does not go unnoticed and it certainly helps maintain a beautiful, safe, fun, and active community-based resort. ????
We can’t count how many have blessed us in one way or another just because that’s who they are. We are grateful to have experienced this while taking a leap of faith. We take pride among many others that are living and loving the RV’ERS traveling and lifestyle. It’s not for everyone! We have much to learn, although we understand that resorts such as this one is an important part of our journey. ????????????????
Thank you, Tammy and Jeff, and the entire team for the love you have and how much you do to keep Butterfield RV Resort a pleasant experience for all, and such a wonderful place to stay.
I’ve been here for 2 months and will be here for another. I made this reservation on a whim escaping from a bad RV park experience and wow what a great whim! The other experience was worth finding this park! It’s just the right size, has trees, is kept pristine, very friendly and is run very well by top notch people! Very reasonably priced. It’s also very convenient to everything in this tiny town of Benson and only 30-40 minutes from a month’s worth of excursions! The one small mention is if trains bother you, it could be tricky but it’s such a lovely place I honestly forget about them most days! 100% would stay again!
Great RV park right off I-10. Pool for the kids, big spots, everyone is super friendly. Close to grocery and Walmart. Yes, there is a train nearby, but not so close it keeps you up at night. Definitely an awesome spot to stop if you’re on the way through town.
We are back again after a couple of years. I believe they have done some more upgrades as the park looks terrific. Nice staff, very clean, nice sites. Safeway store right next door. Would highly recommend if you are in Benson.
We regularly stop here. Once was a destination vacation to escape stressful jobs! TWENTY years and no wear and tear amazing! Great place, clean, library, kitchen, pool table, laundry, 24 hour ICE ( I LOVE ice) living room big TV, EXERCISE room, hot tub, beautiful pool, rally hall, bbq, friendly people. Oh! THERE IS AN OBSERVATORY! An actual ???? ❤. Play it is close to lots of historic places. And convenient to Benson.
