Kansas RV Vacation- Right in the middle of it all

kansas_castle_rockIf you have just driven your RV through Kansas in the past and haven’t stopped, you are missing out. Kansas actually has a variety of things to do on a RV Vacation. The most commonly traveled route through Kansas is on Interstate 70 from Missouri to Colorado. Make sure to stop along the way to see the sites in Kansas City, go to the Rolling Hills Zoo in Salina, and stop to stay at the High Plains Camging RV Park on the way to the giant Van Gogh painting in Goodland, KS.
