Anna and I stop to explore an abandoned KOA campground we found on the roadtripper's website. Located just east of Winslow, Arizona, it's a neat spot with a lot of interesting graffiti.

Video Notes:

If you're interested in visiting, it's really easy, since there's literally nothing around, including anyone to shoo you away. We were there for about 2-3 hours and three other groups of cars stopped to explore the area in that time. We didn't see any police and we even camped there overnight.

You can find more information at the following links; a word of caution though, the road trippers website is extremely buggy:

Right next to the KOA is an abandoned mountain lion zoo, with a really strange history, including an apache death cave! So there's a lot to see here!
