    Nearby Safeway and Walmart make shopping easy. Woodalls loves this place but one big negative from us that they do not grade on.
    Train noise ALL night.

    Woke up by trains each night of our stay. they also pass during the day.
    Very loud.

    We were very pleased with this park and its location---that is until the first night when passing trains woke us several times. We moved to a quieter park the next morning. That is unfortunate since it is really a nice park.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

      We stayed there a few times it is a nice clean well managed park. It honors Escapees discounts too. At night they host a star show in the observatory on the property. If you are a sky watcher you will enjoy this free perk while staying at the park.

      Within walking distance from the park is a Italian family restaurant that we always stop at in Benson. It is located at the corner across the street to the west side of Safeway. It is called Palatiano's the portions are huge and the prices are very reasonable. The desserts look fabulous but in my experience they look better than they taste. On Saturday nights they have a prime rib special for something like ten dollars and again the portion is huge and delicious. Best to get there early as soon as dinner starts sometimes they run out of the special. People regulary ask for take out containers here. We have been able to park our rig in front of the main street at the west side of the restaurant or you could park across the street at Safeway and walk over if you are just passing through.

      Also near Benson to the West is Karchner Cavern State Park it is a nice place to stay if you want to be out of town. The roads and site parking is asphalt. You can tour the Caverns but they let a limited number in each day so call the park and ask about reservations.
