What an amazing place to stay. We pulled in for one night and stayed for three. The owner Ken is a great host and happy to show what he has. Facilities are first class and the price at $15 a night with power was excellent. The local farm animals are very friendly and the bush walks to the cliffs above the Murray River were not too long. The new toilet and shower facilities (we were the first to use them) were first class. All in all an excellent camp ground.

Ken and his staff have created a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere at Benson Park. We took a very enjoyable two hour horse trek and enjoyed a generous morning tea when we got back. There are plenty of friendly animals to amuse the kids and generous campsites for motorhomes and caravans. We will return with our grandchildren some time in the future.

We have been travelling for over a year now and this is definitely been a highlight! Ken is a great host and goes above and beyond to make it an amazing and enjoyable experience. Helping out with all the animals, feeding, adventures by tractor and wagon to the 'sunset bar' over looking the Murray River. Loved it so much we stayed for over a week! Now $25 per night but so worth it. Kids will love it. New and well maintained toilets and showers as well. Thanks Ken!
