"Nice rest area"

Louisiana doesn't seem to have much in terms of rest areas off the I-10 so this was a nice surprise.

"Good for gas, propane and dump close to the I-10"

Nothing special, but close to the I-10 if you need propane or a dump station. Check out Jimmie's Truck parking lot across the street if you are looking for an overnight stop. Next to the Sunoco station and the truck wash. Nothing special, but it's... Read more

"Just some dirt"

It basically just a rutted patch of dirt, but it's free and right next to the travel plaza. I used it for a few hours before check-in time at the state park nearby. If I needed a place for the night this would work in a pinch, but it's right next... Read more

"Pleasantly surprised"

I wasn't sure what to expect from this park. The surrounding area is pretty desolate so I wasn't expecting much. And I feared that its proximity to the I-10 might make it noisy. But, I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the park was. The only... Read more

"One of the crown jewels of the AZ State Park system"

Beautiful locale, the sites are well maintained with a mixture of pull thru and back in options in both camping loops. Easy access to a shopping plaza including a Walmart. Also close to Tucson for other sightseeing options. Probably the only... Read more

"Noisy, but you can't beat the price"

This park is literally right next to the I-10, so it is very noisy. But, if you need a place to stop with full hookups and a good price it is hard to beat. Not many other options in Benson.

"60Mbits down from AT&T? Yes, please!"

A huge lot to park in for free. Nice restaurant, gas and fast LTE speeds (at least for AT&T). It's basically a truck stop so you will have idling trucks, but less highway noise from I-10 that I would have anticipated. A good no-frills place to... Read more

"Nice pull through sites"

Stopped here for a couple of nights to let some weather pass. Lots of pull-through sites. Close to the I-10 which is convenient, but also means a little highway noise. After several days of boondocking at Walmarts, it was a nice respite. The... Read more

"Great for an overnight stop"

I had planned to do an overnight at the Flying J just north of the I-40 from this spot. Saw this place pop up on my Google map and decided to check it out. Glad I did, it was much quieter than an overnight at the truck stop. I would argue even... Read more

"Great experience"

I spent a couple of months here recently and can't say enough good things about this park. All the sites are pull through and can accommodate all sizes of rigs. Rates vary based on length of stay, senior, etc. Paid $15 a day long term (14+ days)... Read more
