As others have stated, good for an overnight stay. The owner is quite a talker (if you meet him). If headed north on Hwy 45 do NOT follow your GPS if it wants you to turn where 45 meets Dale Dr--it's a short turn off on the left in a merge area. Instead, exit 45 at Industrial (turn left). Then turn right (north) when Industrial intersects Dale. The campground will be on your right a few miles up the road. There is a very accessible Shell station right across the street from the campground. The pumps are positioned perfectly for large rigs (lots of space in front of pumps). We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

As others have said this is a no-frills park but it's a great place to stay if you're traveling I-59. Contrary to what was posted in a previous review, they DO take credit cards; maybe not if you're using Passport America which we weren't. The roads are gravel, the sites are paved and ours was long enough for us to park on without unhooking our toad. Most, if not all, sites are pull-throughs. Trees on some sites will make satellite use difficult, but we had no problem streaming video on AT&T. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

A small, no frills park suited for a 1 or 2 night stay...definitely not a destination. We had no problems in a 45 ft motorhome navigating the roads and getting in and out of our site. I wasn't thrilled about having to call the manager to get my site assignment and then going back to the office at 4:30 when he opened up to do check-ins. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Very small park with 27 pull through and 6 back in spaces. All sites are 30/50 amp FHU with cable and picnic table. Pull through sites are a combination of concrete pad for your rv and gravel for your tow vehicle but are very close together. Back in spaces are shorter and comprised of gravel. We stayed in site 12A, a long pull through site that was nicely level. Interior roads were gravel and easy to navigate. No amenities here except a fenced in dog park, laundry, book swap and propane sold on site. Several trees at the park entrance, but they need to be trimmed. Verizon signal was fair and utilities worked well. Free wifi but we didn't use. The park is "old school" with their reservations and payment system. No computer and they don't take credit cards. No confirmation or deposits taken when making the reservation. They put a list on the door of the office with your name and site number, but our name wasn't on it even though we had made reservations 6 months in advance. We had to call and thankfully, there was a site available. The office has strange hours, as they are only open 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. and again from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. They also refill propane during these hours only. There are two private unisex bathrooms with toilet, sink and shower. Laundry area had two washers and two dryers. You need a code to access the bathrooms and laundry, which you can't get until the office is open. Ditto for cable channel list, wifi password, map and rules. Price reflects using 1 night Passport America and two nights Escapees discount. Overall, a good stopover park and we will return. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park for an overnight stay. We were just passing through. No real amenities other than bathrooms and laundry - both of which were clean. Convenience store across the street. Easy access via US45. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was an easy on and off for I-20. Nothing but a good place to pull in for the night to continue going. Wifi was only good at the laundry room. Sites were tight. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Okay Campground for an overnight stay. We have stayed here a few times over the years. I have always noticed the around the power connection stand it is muddy. However this time water was standing all around the power stand. Obviously this is very dangerous. This is an easy problem to resolve with a little gravel placed around the power stations. I hope the owners address this issue. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean, easily accessible for big rigs. Level paved pull-through sites, FHU, wifi, cable. Very nice laundry ($1.50/$1.00). Nothing much here, mostly just a stopover from Interstate 20. The owner is very nice, helpful. Easy access to Meridian though nothing much there that can't be seen in a day or so. Not a 'campground' more of a stopover on the journey. There are several 'permanent campers' residing here but the park is very well kept. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoyed Sunday jazz brunch at Widemann's Restaurant in Meridian historic district; oldest restaurant in MS. A bit pricey but excellent food and atmosphere. Grocery, Walmart, mall nearby. Bonita Lakes is lovely area for outside activities. Gas/diesel fuel across from RV park entrance; could get 40' coach in and out easily.

Let's get one thing straight: this is an overnight stay on your way to someplace else. There are no trees, no privacy, no Wi-Fi unless you are near the office and no seclusion from traffic noise. It's a small park with tight turns and gravel roads with potholes that collect water when it rains. What the park does have is level concrete pads with full hookups, good water pressure, cable TV, pet walk area, laundry, showers, reasonable pricing and attentive management. The park has decided to position itself as a clean, functional, convenient overnight stopping place-and it fits that bill perfectly. Would I stay here again? If I was tired of driving, needed a clean place to spend the night and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg-you bet! One note: if you are using your GPS to find the park, know that it is located in Marion, NOT Meridian, MI. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Small campground with mostly pull thru sites. It is a few miles from the interstate but worth the drive. Staff was friendly. Wi-fi works best close to the office. There is a warning sign in the laundry/shower area that water pressure is high and you should use a regulator. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Site was concrete, there were trees in park, but none at my site. This park was easy to get to, just off the highway. No traffic noise noticed. Interior roads were wide for my 40 ft plus toad. This was good for an overnight stay. We would come again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is your definition of average. Nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible. Clean showers, but only 2 unisex bathrooms. Cheap laundry, but didn't always work. Easy to navigate with paved sites, but office is only open 2-3 hours/day. Stayed here a month. Not many decent parks in the central MS area, so if you're going to be here a while, pick this one. Did hear a train every one in a while, but it didn't disturb my sleep. Very economical park. (Oh, and bring a water regulator) We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We used PA for 1 nite (all they allow) and Escapees for our 2nd nite. This small, no-frills park is an excellent park for a short stay. It is set up perfectly for those in big rigs or small. The sites are not lush...no picnic tables or fire rings, nor any space for them, either. But the long pull-thru sites are easy in-and-out, with a 40' long, level concrete pad located perfectly to park a big rig, with gravel in front and behind, making an overall 70' site. You can leave your toad attached, or disconnect at your site (which we chose to do, as we stayed 2 nites). There's nice grass between sites. All sites have a choice of 30 or 50 amp, sewer, and water. There's also cable and WiFi, but we didn't use either. If you're here for lunch or supper, be sure to try Brickhaus Brewtique downtown. Great burgers and lots of great local beer selections. The artichoke poppers are "da b0mb." Campground sign is well-lit at night. Directions to CG on website are spot-on. Office closed except for a few very specific hours, but assigned sites are posted on door and easy to find in this small gem of a campground. We would definitely stay a night or two if in the area again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Called inroute same day to reserve a site and had to give credit card to hold a $16.50 reservation. Site was ok but cement pad was cracked and not level as well as having several massive anthills full of nasty biting ants. It is handy to the interstate and there's a fuel station/store across the street. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.
