We usually overnight at Fort Amarillo RV Park on the west edge of Amarillo behind Gander Mountain on our yearly excursion to Colorado. Nice place and near lots of restaurants and shopping if interested.

The Koa in Holbrook az is nice--older park but nice folks and near I-40---we usually cruise thru Petrified Forest NP after staying there heading east or cruise PFNP and stay there for the nite if heading west

Petit Jean State Park near Morrilton Arkansas is 22 miles south of I=40 it has full hookups and beautiful scenery--

Clines Corners has been there since the 1934 and is quite a throwback to earlier times.

We stayed at these parks on the way back from the west coast in 2007. All are easy on/off I-40. All are good for overnight stops:

Santa Rosa Campground, Santa Rosa, NM
Amarillo RV Ranch, Amarillo , TX - be sure to spend a night in Amarillo. Go to the Cadillac Ranch and eat at the Big Texan
Red Rock Canyon State Park, Hinton, OK - a few miles off i-40 but worth a stop.

Recommendations are really not going to do you any good, as you won't know where you will be on any given day.

There is no shortage of RV parks along I40.

Get a few campground books and check them about a hour before you are ready to stop. You'll see the ratings and location.

Don't, I repeat DON'T, buy gasoline there. You will be shocked by the price.

We like the Oklahoma City East KOA. It is about 1/2 mile off Interstate 40 by Choctaw, Oklahoma. The KOA is about 10 miles east of Midwest City (Tinker AFB) and 16 miles east of Oklahoma City. While there isn't much around the KOA, retail development has occurred across from Tinker. You'll find plenty of restaurants, fast food, gas stations, grocery stores and other retail right off the Interstate by Tinker/Midwest City. Parking should be ok for larger rigs in parts of the mall lot as you eat or shop.

We stayed at the Oklahoma City East KOA several nights this past summer and will be there again this summer to visit family. The hosts are friendly, the facility clean and well maintained and the location works well for us.

About 20 miles before you reach the KOA is Shawnee, OK. Shawnee has a couple of RV park options along with retail and restaurants. The RV parks are Firelake Grand Casino RV Park and the Heart of Oklahoma Expo Center RV Park. We haven't stayed in those facilities. RV Park Reviews might be helpful as you decide.

The surface of Interstate 40 in Oklahoma is suffering from recent harsh winters so you may hit a few rough spots in the road along the way.

Safe travels,
EmmaMae
