I’d like to recommend this Campground that we are staying in. It’s so nice and clean. The staff and campers that live here are awesome. It’s called Butterfield RV Resort. It has soooo much to offer. Beautiful rec hall with pool, spa, computer room, workout room, laundry facilities that is air conditioned, pool table, coffee 8 -10 daily, 3 dog parks, Observatory. Sites are asphalt. Very nice park if your in Benson Az.
Great park – Sites are large and level. Managers and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Fun activities and a lot of attractions for taking day trips.
We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be back. So many amenities and close proximity to grocery, hardware, gas etc. There are so many sights and Historical places to visit! We loved our stay here! 5/5
Spontaneous decision to stay here on our way back to Texas and we were blown away. The park was meticulously maintained and had more amenities than any we’ve stayed at. Yes, there are some train whistles during the night, but they weren’t bad at all. Never bothered us and I’m a light sleeper. Beautiful pool, a free ice machine, coffee in the morning. Wow. The observatory didn’t open due to clouds but I’m sure that would have been fantastic as well. Stacy at the desk was so pleasant and efficient we will stay here again!! Date of stay: August 2019
We’re just ending a 2 month stay, and we hate to leave. This is one of the nicest parks we’ve stayed in. The park is nicely landscaped, roads are paved and easy to navigate in our 40’ MH. Staff are all friendly and efficient, and they keep the place immaculate. Plenty of activities in the Rec Room and Banquet Hall. Pool and spa are under repair, getting close to completion. They just added a 3rd dog park. It’s a short walk to shopping and Post Office. Easy access to I-10, and there is a lot to see and do in this area. Welcoming atmosphere – we made a lot of new friends. We already booked a stay for next year. Date of Stay: December 2018
