NJ to Utah - RV sites in KS?

We're planning a trip this fall from NJ to CO, UT, AZ, then back along 40 (hopefully catching last few days of the Albuquerque Balloon Festival, through TN to Charleston, SC, then back up to NJ.

Any suggestions on places to overnight in:

KS - convenient to Interstate 70
NM, TX, OK or AK convenient to Interstate 40

Also, thinking of joining Harvest Host, if they have locations along the route. Thanks in advance for any input.

If you're boondocking look for Cabela's stores. They normally have a dedicated parking lot for RV's.



I chuckled when I saw Kansas assuming that you're going out on I-70 I was just going to say just fill up the tank, point the RV west, set the cruise and go take a nap. MOST boring section of road I think I've ever been on. Our last time through we stopped before getting in and just blasted through early in the morning the next day.

We’ve stayed at a place called Chapman Creek a couple times. It’s a couple hours west of Kansas City. It is a good place; not fancy but affordable.

I learned the hard way, EZ pass does not work on the Kansas turnpike. You have to pay. I stayed at the KOA in Salina KS. Very nice, wooded, pull through sites. It was a quit campground.

Not sure where you're planning to stay in Charleston area but recommend the Mt. Pleasant/Charleston KOA. Right up the road from us, close to downtown Charleston, Isle of Palms beach, Boone Hall Plantation and much more. Great facility!

Also, check out Tom Sawyer RV park in West Memphis, Arkansas. Memphis, TN right over the bridge. Off of I 40. On the Mississippi River and beautiful. I found this park online while traveling. Looks rough when you drive in but absolutely beautiful once you go around the bend to park. When we were there, the laundry facilities were free! Wished we could have stayed longer. Ask for a river front site.

Thanks. Very familiar with that KOA and area. Our daughter lives in Mt. Pleasant right near the IOP connector and 17. We've driven through the KOA while down there with our car, but not with our RV yet.

Tom Sawyer is a pretty good place. Take a look at the Mississippi River levels before going there. It was flooded a few years ago and it could happen again with the weather thatís occurring.

Not familiar with Kansas, but close to the 40 in Albuquerque is All American RV Park. Very nice, convenient, and free breakfast. Oasis RV Park west of Amarillo is your choice in that area. And west of Oklahome City, get off at El Reno, go north about 5 miles, and at Lucky Star Casino, you can park, and gamble.

We go to colorado a couple times a year. There are two places we like....there is a koa in salina, ks, and then there is a small wonderful park in Ellis, Ks. It is in town, literally! costs i think 10 or 20 on the honor system. Pull through. No one to call, just go. Seems really weird, but it is nice.

If youíre just driving through KS and want to stop for the night, many of the rest stops have a loop you can overnight in. If you want to spend some time, there are several great Corps of Engineers campgrounds that are 20-30 minutes or so off I-70, such as Wilson Lake, Tuttle Creek near Manhattan, Clinton Lake near Lawrence, and a few others that I canít come up with the names for at the moment. If you have the America the Beautiful senior pass the COE campgrounds are around $10/night (unless theyíve gone up this year). Many of the small towns throughout the Midwest have city parks you can stay at for a minimal cost, some are free. Enjoy your trip!!

We have stayed in the Ellis RV Park a few times also. There is a lake right next to the RV Park and some of the locals come there to fish. There arenít very many sights, maybe fifteen, but large pull through, very well kept, and quite.
