We stopped here on our June 2021 road trip, heading out of Amarillo to Oklahoma City. The kids thought it was very fun (they still had their cans of paint from visiting Cadillac Ranch earlier that day). There are also some other neat abandoned buildings to explore and photograph on the site as well. If you're careful, you can actually get your kids into a few of the Slug Bugs for some fun pictures. Definitely worth a stop if you're heading down Rt. 66!

A neat stop along the way. Make sure you bring some spray paint to add your mark!

Loved it! Quick on/off the Highway. Lots of fun spray painting and taking pictures. Worth the stop. When we went we were the only ones there, so that was nice.

Lots to see here, not only the VW Beetles but also the deserted gas station and surrounding buildings. Smaller than the Cadillac Ranch but also less people.

Convenient stop right off the highway. Wouldn’t plan to stay more than an hour here, but it was cool. Bring spray paint!

Nice little stop. Cars are not in the best shape . Bring spray paint to help them. Sad that Route 66 is almost gone.

We had seen the Cadillac tribute on our last trip out west, so this time we decided to find the VW Slug Bug Ranch. We were the only ones there at the time we stopped as well...which made it even more special!

I don’t know why people rave about this place. Unless it’s not what it used to be. There were a couple of VWs buried. Nothing else. A few falling in buildings. The graffiti was even faded and crumbling with the buildings. I would waste my time. What we saw from the highway was the same as what we saw stopping.
