what time of year is this trip? do you mean to use interstate 40? if winter-to-early spring I-17/I-40 around and thru Flagstaff you likely will encounter winter driving conditions. otherwise we're on I-44/I-40/I-17 between St. Louis and Mesa every March. I-40 last year was a good drive other than around FLagstaff and I-17 southbound from I-40 was a washboard until past Camp Verde.


you don't mention what kind of campgrounds you're looking for. on our trip out we usually stay at the Twin Fountains RV Park in OK City; Oasis RV Park in Amarillo and the OK RV Park in Holbrook. east of OK City we head on I-44.

Palo Duro SP. just south of Amarillo will add about 50 miles to your trip but is well worth the 5-10 gal of diesel. It's the Grand Canyon of Texas.

Sky City Indian Pueblo, Sky City Casino & RV park milepost 102 in NM

Lots to see in the Albuquerque area. Enchanted Trails RV is PA and OK for stopover. Route 66 Casino has an upscale RV Park.

The Lucky Star Casino in Clinton, OK has free RV parking with elect.

then I'd keep a very watchful eye on the winter weather as you go. and I neglected to mention that we usually stay at Isleta Lakes RV Park in Albuquerque. But the American RV Park in ABQ is nice as is the RT 66 Casino RV Park a bit west of ABQ. good luck and safe travels.

Well, when you finally make it to Louisiana, try some Boudin (Cajun sausage) and Cracklins. One of the best places to stop will be at Scott, La. Billy’s Boudin is one of the best and is next door to the KOA campground.

Hold on to your hat for the I-10 section from Lafayette to Baton Rouge. Mighty rough road. Expect a long delays at the Mississippi bridge over to Baton Rouge were there is a bottle neck just over the bridge.

Another option is to turn south on highway 90 (future I-49 corridor) out of Lafayette, La down to New Orleans. If you want to experience real Cajun culture, Lafayette is the place. Great food and entertainment. South of Lafayette is New Iberia, La where you can visit the Tabasco plant. There is a restaurant, museum and country store (try the Tabasco ice cream). At some point if you take the old Hwy 90 (hwy 182) that parallels the 4 lane hwy 90, you will see true Louisanna towns and country.

Hope you have a good trip.

Patrick
