#1 Choice - Benson, AZ

So, we have been spending this last week in Benson, AZ.  We have stayed here a couple of times, but it has been awhile.  So, we have been busy driving around southern Arizona getting familiar with the area again.  We liked it quite a bit last time and what a surprise....we still do!

We drove to Davis-Monthan AFB/Tucson one day.  On the second day, we drove to Ft. Huachuca Army Base/Sierra Vista and to Patagonia to see where we would be spending our winter.  On the third day, we drove over to Casa Verde near Phoenix to see another Co-op park.  That park wasn’t as nice as the one in Benson. 

This Casita is my favorite one.

After all that driving around, we decided to stay home to do a little resting and catching up on everything.  We did some walking around the park, took photos of the Casitas that we liked the best.  

The lots are very spacious and people do quite a bit of landscaping.

We were assigned a front row site and fell in love with the view.  Across the street we were able to watch a lot of different birds along with the Quail.  They really kept the cats entertained.
Time to Slow Down
We know we have not seen all of the Co-op parks yet, but we decided to get on the Saguaro SKP's waiting list here in Benson.  There are over 300 people waiting to have a site here which means it may take up to 7 years to get a site.  In the meantime, we plan to keep looking at the other parks.  We might change our minds and decide on a different park.  We can be on more than one waiting list.  We will have to wait and see.


  1. It looks so pretty! I'm not sure I could live in AZ though. My aunt and uncle live there and they love the winters but hate the summers. :-/

  2. You take some fantastic photos, it looks lovely xx

  3. I agree with Mrs HillyG, I certainly would love the winters but not so sure about the summers. You seem to have had a good time!

  4. WOW that looks really nice! I like the casita you like!

  5. I want to visit Arizona again! I got engaged the last and only time I went almost two years ago. I didn't see Benson, but maybe next time! Awesome photographs.

  6. Thanks Beck Valley Books! I love taking photos to share.

  7. Hi Michelle, I had emailed Mrs HillyG. And I agree with her, but that is the beauty of living in a motorhome. Winter in AZ and summer in the north. Oh! you bet we have a good time and we have seen a lot of our beautiful country.

  8. Thanks ArtisianAllUnwound! Isn't it cute! They put a lot of work into that place.

  9. Looks fantastic!! I can't believe its that long of a waiting list!! Wow!! Take care and enjoy your trip!

  10. I think I have been there, back in the 80s. It was May and I wanted to die, it was so hot!!! Being from the UK I'm not sure what a co-op park or a casita is, but it all looks very nice.
    Thanks for stopping by Sandy.


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
