Route 66 News

Campgrounds updates

On the suggestion of a reader, I updated the Campgrounds listings page on Route 66 News today. Most of the ones listed from the last update in December 2008 are still operating.

However, I found a few had gone out of business, and I added new ones as well. Google, I discovered, is getting better at finding such businesses than when I first compiled this list in 2006.

I do not go camping, so I cannot vouch for these campgrounds’ quality. However, I do try to include campgrounds that are on Route 66 or within a mile or so (thank you, Google Maps).

I first compiled the campgrounds list after a few suggestions from readers. I was surprised how well it was received and still is. Apparently, the page filled a niche that had been long neglected.
