Camping and Lodging

(This is not finalized yet but this is what we are shooting for.)

We are looking at the KOA Campgrounds for our camping/lodging needs. The prices are very affordable and the facilities are well kept. Besides the plus of knowing where we will stop, this will help with anyone's budget for the ride. They have cabins and tent camping, pools and showers and most have free wifi wireless internet connections. An added plus is the knowing that your vehicle will be safer than at a motel/hotel. Camping average would be around $20 per night for two and a nice cozy Kamping Kabin at an average of $40 for two. You can purchase a 1 year discount card for $14 which will give an additional 10% discount off of camping/lodging.
KOA strives to keep safe, clean and secure sites so this is also a plus. Many are family owned and operated so this is also a plus.

Several KOA's are near or on the old Route 66 highway and plenty of scenic highway. For instance, Elk City Oklahoma has a Route 66 museum with artifacts from the era, Amarillo Texas has the infamous Cadillac Ranch, with it's ten Cadillac's buried nose down, within a stones throw. Buffalo Tennessee is in the heart of the Blueridge Mountains with the KOA Campgrounds near the Loretta Lynn Ranch. Seligram Arizona is one of the few remaining stretches of the actual Route 66 that steps back in time to the fifties.

You can go to the campground site and check out these stopping points by clicking the KOA Campground U.S. These are the target overnight stops that I am looking at for interesting points for anyone to visit if not to road weary.
1) Asheville, North Carolina
2) Buffalo, Tennessee
3) Little Rock, Arkansas
4) Elk City, Oklahoma
5) Amarillo, Texas
6) Albuquerque, New Mexico
7) Seligram, Arizona
8) Last stop, in California ( To be Determined )

Go to the site and look around and give some feedback.
