The park occupies over 25,000 acres and offers camping, cabins, riding stables, picnicking, and miles of hiking, mountain bike and horse trails.

The outdoor epic TEXAS runs every summer in the park's Pioneer Amphitheater.

"A little way off Route 66 but a MUST visit and stay. RVs and camping, clean amenities, STUNNING scenery and performances to see in a natural amphitheatre at certain times of the year. Also horse riding and wagon rides."

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
