Not sure when you are going, so I will assume it will be summer. Crater of Diamonds SP is less than 2 hours SW of Little Rock, and the campground has been renovated and has full hookups and lots of trees. We did not have a toad, so we simply walked the path to the entrance to the diamond fields (took maybe 10 minutes). There is also a water park inside the park, and kids were having a blast. It is a small water park, but nicely done. Check out the link, we found several small diamonds, and someone found a large diamond everyday we were there (5 days total).

We only spent one day in Hot Springs, and there are lots of CG's with pools and things for kids to do. We made reservations for the SP, and will definitely go back someday.

Diamond Mines - Crater of Diamonds State Park

Along I-40 near Amarillo is Palo Duro Canyon SP, simply amazing! Check out the link for all the activities for the kids.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park — Texas Parks & Wildlife Department

The only other advice I have to offer is if you need a kid friendly CG near Albuquerque, American RV Park is on the far west end of town, and they have a pool and hot tub, along with free breakfast.

Have fun! Holler if I answer any questions.

Downtown North Little Rock RV Park, owned by the city. Park on the bank of the Arkansas River, walk across the pedestrian bridge to the Clinton "double wide" library. Submarine parked in walking distance with tours. Arkansas Travelers minor league baseball is walking distance. Good places to eat and drink across the river as well. Great sunsets and view of LIT Riverwalk. We stay there often, have family in the area.

X2 what Firebug5 & Larrikin, posted.


Have not seen a kid or adult that didn't enjoy National Cowboy Museum and the history learned by visiting.


Pops on Route 66 is oddball interesting stop. May be a little to far off I40, but a good kid/adult stop.

If you would like an interesting dining stop. The Big Texan(Free 72 oz. steak), west bound on east side of Amarillo. Caution each kid must eat all 72 oz. and trimmings. Very Texan restaurant and decor. The food is reasonable tasting. Usually a cowboy on horse to assist with welcome and parking.

Another short stop and good for a driver break on I40, west of Amarillo, is the Cadillac Ranch. A now deceased rancher planted several Cadillac's with tail up. I never saw the draw but I always see many visitors each time I pass through. Free access and about the only place in West Texas where a rancher will not approach you with a sidearm asking what your doing on his property.lol Warning this is a better stop when headed east bound so not to walk across interstate.

That's all the cheese I have to offer. Have fun.
