Looking for a little adventure while you're camping with an RV? You can make a visit to Coronado National Forest, just a 30-minute drive from Benson KOA. Hiking, horseback riding, and cycling – on the road and off-road - are some of the most popular activities within the forest. During the warm summer months, visitors can enjoy the cooler temperatures in the high Ponderosa pine forest or go boating on human-made lakes in the forest’s recreational areas. Throughout the winter, you can discover the desert lowlands or head to Santa Catalina Ranger District for skiing, snowboarding, or snowmobiling. The ski area is located near the summit of Mt. Lemmon, making it one of the southernmost ski areas in the USA.
Tucked into the eastern side of the Whetstone Mountains, within the boundaries of Coronado National Forest is Kartchner Caverns State Park. If you’ve brought a mountain bike along for your vacation with an RV rental near Benson KOA, then you can hop onto the Guindani Trail, it’s one of the most popular cycle routes. The path winds for four miles through the mountainous forest to Upper Volunteer Village and joins to the Cottonwood Saddle Trail. Meanwhile, hikers have plenty of loop trails to choose from with mountain viewpoints and water crossings on the way. While exploring the trails, you can keep an eye out for rare peregrine falcons or watch out for mountain lions. The park is home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, and amphibians.
Of course, for many visitors, the highlight of Kartchner Caverns State Park is the opportunity to get underground. You can take a guided tour of these limestone caverns which were discovered in 1974 and search for one of the world's longest soda straw stalactites. Alternatively, come after nightfall and switch off your vehicle’s lights for one of the park's organized stargazing nights.
Saguaro National Park is another place that you can add to your itinerary while you’re RV camping at Benson KOA. Stretching for over 66,000 acres on the east side of Tucson and almost 25,000 acres on the west side, the park is home to some of the largest cactuses in the USA. Plus, there are 25 species of cacti and a number of rare plant types to be found. Here, hikers can get active with over 150 miles of hiking trails and rugged wilderness areas.

To visit the historic county seat, drive your Benson camper rental south. The picturesque city of Bisbee sits in the folds of the Mule Mountains and hosts a well-preserved 20th-century downtown area. This area is jam-packed with classic pubs, local breweries, and a wide variety of restaurant. You can taste Mexican dishes, vegan food, pizza, and everything in between. After picking your favorite place to eat and drink, you can take a stroll around one of Bisbee’s art galleries or search for homemade crafts in independent stores.
Bisbee is widely known as the "Queen of the Copper Camps" thanks to copper mining heritage. Nowadays, the small city still hosts the infamous Queen Mine which received laborers from as far away as mining districts in Europe and remained in operation for almost 100 years. You can pick up a hard hat at the entrance and learn about the history of the mine and its miners with an underground guided tour.
Those who prefer to stay above ground can visit the Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum instead. The museum is located on Copper Queen Plaza. The historic building was once the headquarters for the Copper Queen Consolidation Mining Company.
