After driving through Oklahoma (and a number of toll roads – thank you family for a great supply of quarters), we settled into Missouri and on to Springfield.
For an RV park this ranks up there at the top for the KOA’s we have stayed at. It is a lovely setting with tall trees on the west side of Springfield on old route 66.
RV Park: Route 66 KOA
Location: Springfield, Missouri
Site: 73 (pull through)
Cost: $50.83 (deluxe patio site)
