Valley Vista RV Resort
1060 S Highway 80
Benson, AZ  85602
520-720-0024
2/11-2/18/2014, 11/24/2016, 4/20-4/22/2017


2017 UPDATE - We paid $19.52 using our Passport America since they no longer accept Coast to Coast and with our Thousand Trails, we need to be out of any park for 7 days before we could use it again. The place this time was deserted, the customer service was fantastic as it has been and the entire area looks great. We will continue coming to this park while we pass through but really sad that they no longer accept Coast to Coast. 

2016 UPDATE - We paid $14.46 using our Coast to Coast and additional taxes and resort fees for the same site as we had back in 2014. It was Thanksgiving Day so the office was closed but they left an envelope with our information. Customer service was fabulous over the phone since we just made the reservation the day before due to the windy weather which usually with Coast to Coast is unheard of but they made our reservation without any hassles. 


This is an Encore Resort where we used our Coast to Coast membership and we paid $13.32 which included a resort fee and taxes for a water, electric, and sewer on a fairly level gravel site.  It was nice not to be on top of our neighbor, some of the sites were a bit closer together but ours was wide and long.  They offered WiFi and cable with an additional charge, our Verizon phones and MiFi worked great so we did not need to pay the extra charge.


The landscaping was desert and well maintained.


The restrooms and laundry area was kept sparkly clean.




They had loads of activities since it is still snowbird time in this area but we like that we were still able to take advantage of our Coast to Coast membership.  The pool and spa was inviting but it was still a bit chilly for us to partake in the activity.



We would definitely stay here again if we are passing through but to stay for a long stay like a week there is not much to do in the area and there are no bike paths and the highway is too busy to feel safe.


Very rarely and especially in the middle of the night we could hear a faint noise coming from the highway and the train tracks, otherwise it was really quiet and dark.  The weather was perfect, warm days and cool nights, who could ask for anything more?

We are now down the road a few miles in St David for a week, then we will be at the Escapee Park just down the road from this park. Feel free to text us where and when you guys will be in the area, we would love to get together.

Actually we changed our plans too. We have reservations at the St. David resort for two nights (22nd and 23rd) .... unless we change that to move into a park in Tombstone.
