The KOA in Benton, IL. was a great campground with a wonderful staff. They offer a pool, large pull through sites, a playground for kids and a small dog park for dogs to run off-leash. Big rigs have no problem getting in and out. They even offer a couple of cabins for rent.
We actually had a tire blow on the fifth wheel just fifteen miles from the campground on our way in for a three-day stay. But because we needed to get new tires they made it possible for us to extend our stay two more nights. They were very accommodating and recommended a great mobile RV service and tires shop that was just two miles away.
We went to the Gold’s Gym in Marion while we stayed here just 20 minutes south of Benton. The Gold’s Gym in Marion was one of the cleanest we have ever been to.
