Virtually every accommodation in Gallup is somewhere along Route 66, either near the I-40 interchanges or on the highway through downtown.

Camping -- As in the rest of the state, the Gallup area offers plenty of places to pitch a tent or hook up your RV. USA RV Park (tel. 505/863-5021; www.usarvpark.com) has 145 sites, 50 full hookups (cable TV costs extra), and cabins, as well as grocery and laundry facilities. Recreation facilities include arcade games, a seasonal heated swimming pool, and a playground. An outdoor breakfast and dinner are served at an extra cost. Sites range from $21 for tents to $28 for full hookups. Cabins are $37. To reach the campground, take I-40 to the US 66/Business I-40 junction (exit 16); go 1 mile east on US 66/Business I-40.

Red Rock Park campground (tel. 505/722-3839) has 106 sites -- 50 with no hookups and 56 with water and electricity. Tent sites are available. Sites range from $20 for tents to $25 for full hookups. The sites are right against the buttes, though in the spring they will surely be dusty because of little protection from the wind. Also accessible are a convenience store, picnic tables, and grills.
