Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins offers about 337 units for reservation, with a majority of these sites being RV spaces. Some of the RV spots have full hookups, including water, electricity, and sewage, while others only come with water and electricity. According to the manager, 12 of them are open year-round, and patrons can rent some sites seasonally for extended periods. Each RV site is back-in only and comes with a gravel pad for parking a vehicle. Each site includes a picnic table, and fire pits. People are allowed to pitch tents at the tent sites, which also have fire pits and a picnic table for guest use. Moreover, the business has ten cabins called "barns," each varying in size, design, and utilities. They have water, electricity, mini kitchens, showers, and bathrooms. Bed size varies as well, ranging from bunk beds to queen beds. Only-electric yurts can be reserved as well. The establishment has five yurts that come with electricity but no running water. Patrons that don't have a trailer of their own can rent a residential trailer, cabin, or yurt for the duration of their stay. One unique unit is the lodge, which can sleep up to 12 people and comes with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a jacuzzi, a kitchen, and a dining room. All guests need to bring are food and clothing. It should be noted that Wi-Fi is available on the grounds.

Besides the units, several common areas and other buildings are on the grounds. Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins also has two bathhouses, an arcade with ping-pong tables and air hockey, an activity room, a miniature golf course, a catch-and-release pond, and a dog park, among other amenities. According to the manager, the activity room is frequently used for arts and crafts, sporting events, and other small gatherings. The dog park is fenced-in, allowing patrons to let their pets run and play. There is also a store on the property that sells firewood, propane, t-shirts, souvenirs, and RV supplies. The store also sells food, including sodas, snacks, and candy.

There are many opportunities for guests to participate in outdoor recreational activities in the area. Ski resorts can be found nearby, which are open in the winter. Visitors can also kayak down the rapids of the local rivers. There is a Himalayan Salt Spa and Cave nearby that the manager likes to recommend to tourists. Guests can find antique shops and wineries in the vicinity as well. An architect named Frank Lloyd Wright designed a house that has become a local attraction for people to visit, called Fallingwater, due to the fact that it was built over a waterfall. Stacey, the manager, also likes to tell patrons about the restaurants in the area. A few that she mentions by name are Maywood Grill, which has a bakery; Fox's Pizza Den, which makes dishes such as pizzas, salads, and sandwiches; and Curt's Family Dining, which serves many different kinds of meat.


Stacey, the manager, describes Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins as "family-friendly." In an effort to create a family-friendly atmosphere, they offer amenities that adults and children can use. Stacey says, "We have wagon rides, cornhole tournaments, kids making presents for mom on Mother's Day, potlucks, barbecues, cook-offs, fishing in the pond, and other activities that all ages can enjoy." The business frequently hosts events on the grounds. Many different types of events and celebrations can be accommodated, such as wine tasting, corporate meetings, and carnivals. The establishment is trying to implement wagon rides throughout the property for guests.

There are several policies that the business asks guests to abide by during their stay. Quiet time begins at 11:00 p.m. During quiet time, visitors can still be active, but they must keep the noise to a minimum. In the manager's words, "basically, just be a good neighbor." Patrons can bring their pets if they stay in the RV sites, but occupants must keep the animals on a leash, and the pet owners must clean up after them. Food needs to be appropriately stored to avoid attracting wild animals.

There have been many patrons that have visited over the years, and a few people have left reviews of their experience. One person wrote, "Sites were the perfect size for us and were well-shaded. It was easy to back onto the pad. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the camp had great family activities over the weekend." The busiest time of year for Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins tends to be during the summer. Concerning the demographic of those who stay at the campground, typically families with children constitute the majority of visitors. Stacey mentions that one of the property's unique features is that they have a platform set aside for guests to go stargazing if they would like. Another aspect of the property she likes to tell people about is three resident ducks living on the grounds: Cassidy, Curly, and Waddles. Patrons can feed the ducks at their leisure.


Mr. Benner is the man who originally started the campground in 1965. According to Stacey, the manager, Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins remained in his family for a long time. The original family still contributes to the company.

Stacey explains that she and her family sold their house and 23 acres of land and began traveling for some time. Stacey and her husband did several different jobs until they decided to find a place where they could stay for a more extended period of time. That's when they learned about Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins, where she and her husband both got jobs as general managers. Changes have been made to the campground in an effort to improve the quality of the amenities and to add more activities for guests. The campground is within driving distance of many different ski resorts.
