Clean restroom, everything you need for traveling or camping. Diner attached. A few neat motorcycles and one car to look at. Lots of souvenir choices. Enclosed dog run is a very nice touch.

This place offers very clean restrooms, lots of food choices, travel gifts and drinks. The diner inside is good as well as the Subway Sandwich spot. Ohhh and the car museum rotates often so there are always different cars inside to look at.

The most amazing free museum in the back of the travel center. Do NOT let the fact that this is a truck stop keep you from enjoying the museum. There was way too much to see here, old cars, memorabilia, sodas, oil, motorcycles, toys, clothes...it...More
