US Route 60?

Planning on a cross country trip and looking at route 60 as a slower paced, more relaxing drive. Starting in Arizona and pretty much staying on 60 until turning north in Kentucky. Anyone have any experience travelling this road? Planning on around 300 miles a day, so a concern is availability of RV parks on what appears to be the less populated byway.
Any information/advice will be appreciated!

U.S. 60 is a nice drive from your location. I've driven it many times. Western New Mexico and eastern Oklahoma are nice, southern Missouri and Kentucky sections are awesome pretty. Eastern New Mexico, Texas Panhandle, and western Oklahoma get boring but it's still a nice drive. Not a lot for RV parks along the way, especially the western portions, however Missouri and Kentucky offer some nice RV parks. If you're just looking for overnight stopping places nearly every town has a Walmart!

Did the 60 from I-25 to Phoenix last fall. Beautiful drive. Not much in the way of services. Teeny tine rv park in Pie Town NM, just 5 or 6 spaces.

Right - not many official RV places in western NM or eastern AZ but much of the land in that area is BLM or Forest Service and one can park and camp anywhere on that federal land. Also, if it is time to eat, try the Eagle Guest Ranch in Datil, NM, not far from Pie Town. The restaurant used to be a great place to eat. All beef served there is raised on the ranch owned by the restaurant's owners, and deserts used to be great. Haven't been there for several years now since moving from NM to CO.

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like we may be doing a bit of dry camping along the way.
Also appreciate the tip on Datil dinning, will stop in. Was near there a few months ago giving some eastern relatives a tour of our old NM stomping gounds through the state (had to visit the VLA - forget it's new name).
Have some planning to do!

Here is a great website for finding public campgrounds (Fed, State, County, BLM etc).

Here is another we use.

Also, there is always RVParkReviews
