Campgrounds

This is a listing of Route 66 campgrounds and RV parks I’ve compiled. It is not all-inclusive, but I tried to list the ones that are on historic Route 66 or within a mile or so. I haven’t stayed in any of these, so I cannot vouch for their quality. If you have suggestions, e-mail me at route66news (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Don’t forget the KOA in Pomona, which, although not on the road, is the closest to the road in LA County. There’s also plenty of camping available north of the end of the road in Santa Monica along various beaches, plus camping in the San Gabriel and Santa Monica Mountains, both just north of 66. You may wish to check out camping locations in the Angeles and Los Padres National Forests.

Hi, We are the owners of the campground with the mural of Route 66 across Missouri called RVExpress RV Park 1469 Spur Drive Marshfield, MO 65706. 417 859-7837. Your site has an article entitled “New mural depicts Route 66″ about the mural. We are less than ½ mile from where Route 66 comes through Marshfield, MO and were wondering if you could put in your “Campgrounds” section. We sell in our store Skip Curtis’s book “Route 66 Tour Guide” and the “Images of Route 66″ by David Wickline. Thanks, Terry & Iwana Evans RVExpress RV Park 1469 Spur Drive Marshfield, MO 65706 417 859-4013 http://www.rvexpressrvpark.com

Hello Steve,
saw your comments on route 66 news website & have a q for you,
We are a sml family from brisbane Australia wanting to do this same trip & wondered if you did do the trip And if you’ve got any handy tips for us, We plan to do the trip Sept/Oct 2011.
Have been on internet and are a bit brain dead with all info, thought it would make sense to talk to someone who has done it,
anything you can tell us would be great,
Hope you don’t mind us doing this, thanks for taking time to read,
Jenny & Trevor
Brisbane, Australia.

There is a new RV park and campground in Lake Havasu Arizona with great lake views. It’s Campbell Cove RV Resort and you can find them at http://www.campbellcovervresort.com

8. Arden Townsend - May 31, 2008

This sight I feel might help my son and group of his solder friends who are planning to hike Route 66 in 2012. There plans right now are to hike the route and place flags along the route in honor of fallen solders in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I see that this sight gives alot of camp grounds along the route. Do you add to the list what I see guest write in their comments area?

I know they are talking about using this route to raise money for different organizations. They are hoping to get VFW, current military, military families, etc to maybe join them when they get to their area of the country. As you might be able to tell it still is in the planning stages, but this sight will be wonderful as a resource.

9. Kay Chamberlain - December 31, 2008

Awesome! We’re taking the family from ABQ to Disneyland with kids and we’ll want to make a few stops in between. This is very helpful!

17. Rich - February 25, 2010

Any chance of updating this campground site list. Last update was 12/2008. Thanks!

Ron - February 25, 2010

That’s a good idea. I think I’ll do that in the new few days. However, a cursory glance indicates to me that nearly all of the RV parks listed are still operating.

18. gordo - June 9, 2010

Camping in Sayre

The City of Sayre Oklahoma has a very nice park that allows both tent and RV Camping. As of May 2010 it was 12.00 a night. It is located right off 66, as you are leaving town headed West. Just look for the golf course, and drive in!!

19. David Linigan - August 1, 2010

Great list of campgrounds.My family are planning to travel now.

20. sandra woodruff - August 20, 2010

Thank you for this information. It’s wonderful. I just traveled from Texas and decided to stay at the Lazy J RV Park you had listed. It wasn’t one of the biggest, but the owners, Richard and Jessie Mae, made me feel welcome. I especially loved the garden fresh tomatos and corn on the cob! Thank you again for making it possible for me to find this and other places like it. I’ll be sure to not leave home without your guide!

I don’t know if anyone has answered you as of yet. But I have found two really good books I purchased online. They are EZ66 guide and Dining& Lodging guide. These books are from the National historic Rt 66 Federation. http://www.national66.org We also found a really nice 5 dvd set from the same place. We are leaving April 1 for our Rt 66 trip. We are traveling on a motorcycle pulling a motorcycle camper. We are so looking forward to this trip. Good luck !!

29. richie barnett - April 17, 2012

hi this will come in handy :) me an the boys are travelling route 66 in June cannot wait! weve got a big RV, is there any parts to avoid due to the size of the RV on route 66?? i was told theres a part of the grand canyon to avoid??

Ron Warnick - April 17, 2012

Depending on the size of your RV, you might find the switchbacks on the road to Oatman, Ariz., to be challenging. However, RVs do make it down that road.

30. angela stewart - June 25, 2012
