Not sure if you have pets, but there is a neat cg in Amarillo, Tx on I40 called Overnight RV Park at exit #75
where each site has a fenced in yard for pets. Plus the Big Texan Steakhouse will send a limo there to pick you up for dinner or carryout The Big Texan Steak Ranch

otherwise we have had good luck with rest areas along the interstates
Never in doubt, often wrong

I agree that Petit Jean SP is worth some extra time, if you have time. The waterfall might not have much flow in November, not sure, but the views from the overlooks are great, the trails are nice (don't miss the Bear Cave Trail), and camping under the pines is pleasant. Here's a picture of my granddaughters along this trail....

But if you don't want to veer off the main route that far (the winding 2-lanes in and out will add probably 3/4 hour to your travel time), you could stay at Lake Catherine SP just off I-40 near Russellville. Or if it's too early to stop there, you might camp at Springhill COE CG, Barling AR (near Van Buren); this is the site of an annual egg rally in Septembers, it's only about 10 minutes south of the highway, and they have a couple of non-reservable campsites in addition to the many reservable ones.

Red Rock Canyon SP near Hinton OK is a pretty neat place, you're down in the canyon with red walls around you. If you're farther along on your route, though, there are supposed to be 5 free campsites at Elk City Lake Park, exit 38 then 1 mile south. Also I've stayed at the city park in Sayre OK, $12 self-pay with water and electric hookups and a dump station, maybe a half mile N of I-40 and a couple of blocks west.

Palo Duro certainly is a nice destination, but it is some distance off your route so it depends on your available time.

Kathi, thank you for that information. Free admission might be enough reason for us to visit Canada for an extended period of time.

It's not free camping. It's just free to get into the national parks.

On our last trip west we found in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota state campgrounds are "all reservation" meaning all sites must be reserved. In South Dakota we found you could reserve at the campground via a phone at the front gate for no additional charge. You must use a credit card. No cash. This trend appears to be spreading.
