This is a great campground. Staff is always friendly, and the place is meticulously maintained. Interior roads and some of the short-term sites are asphalt. They even have an observatory and have evening showings, weather permitted.  WIFI is a little slow (too slow to use for work) but the connections to Verizon and AT&T are good, so we didn’t have to use it.

All in all, we would stay here again if we’re back in the area. And, probably for longer than a week.

  1. What a great idea for a post. What things did you enjoy doing here! And exactly where is it for those of use who aren’t so good with Latitude and longitude? 😉

    1. It’s in Benson AZ. A link to their website is at the bottom of the review.
      Really didn’t do too much since I was working from Monday to Friday. The town is nice and had a good grocery store so that’s a plus.

      1. I went back and looked at your post after I wrote this. Then I saw the link. We’re now off the RV road-but still hope to travel some other way. AZ was on our bucket list-we actually planned to winter there next year and just fly home for the holidays. But things happened and now we’re settling down and then we’ll plan some nimble road trips.

        1. We’re wintering in Casa Grande AZ (halfway between Tucson and Phoenix currently. This will be a long “stop” for us since we’ve been traveling for the past 15 months and only staying two weeks or a month.
          Sad to hear you’re off the road. Was hoping to meet one day. But fully understand from reading your post. Enjoy your grandchildren, they grow up fast.
          We’ll send you a message if we’re ever in Myrtle Beach and maybe meet up.
