Hargis Tourist Camp

Eisenhower Rd., Doolittle, MO

East< GO > West

The Hargis Tourist Camp dates back to the 1944-45. There was a Roller Rink out front along the highway and red and white cabins farther back from the road in what some called an "All American Camp" in the woods. There was a filling station here as well. Hargis was also Justice of the Peace and one of the original five trustees that started the town of Doolittle in 1943. All that is left of his tourist camp is this roller rink, and a good part of the rink roof is missing.

It is located on the south side of Eisenhower St., just past Grant St.

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
