We really enjoyed this impromptu visit to Cool Springs! Dwayne was telling the history and significance of that location when I walked in and it really made this “tourist attraction” come to life! I highly recommend stopping here before taking on the sidewinder. It was really cool as he also gave us some tips of places to check out, although we missed them. We got distracted by all the donkeys. But overall it definitely become a memorable visit for us and you should 100% go there too!

We stopped here on our way to Oatman along historic Route 66. What a cool historic place! There were all kinds of memorabilia similar to what you would find along the Mother Road full of history of those who've been there before.

The staff was polite, courteous and well versed in the history of the are. Take your time as you stop here. Although it's small its well worth spending 30-45 minutes just looking around this great little rest stop along Route66!

Old historic building on route 66 east of Oatman and west of Kingman, Arizona on route 66. Now a gift shop and small museum. Cool Springs use to be the last stop before hitting the mountain pass into Oatman. Prices are not bad and lots of history of the area. A nice stop on your way to Oatman.

What a cool, iconic stop! We were there early, so they were not yet open, but it was so neat to be there, regardless. It's open, quiet, and feels like you have the whole world to yourself out there. The cacti and aloe plants were huge and the scenery beautiful. I loved the Route 66 painted on the road in front - perfect photo op! They had a cat walking around and there are wild burros all in that area of roadway. There is an outhouse available.

They did a nice job of re building and keeping it as original as possible. It would have been fun to go inside, but, I guess it depends on when the owner choses to open and not. Still worth a photo op for those who love the history of 66!!

My husband and I stopped here after coming through the Sidewinder Route 66 from Oatman.

Neat stop with lots of souvenirs plus cool photo ops.

Best of all shop owner was friendly and helpful.

Definitely check this place if you're heading to the Sidewinder!

What a great sight after driving over a long plain and just starting up into the mountains. It's a great restored Route 66 gas station. Perfect place to stop and get a soda. They have a small museum in the back and lots of souvenirs. Owner was great and told us this was the prettiest part of Route 66 and there were 126 curves in the road between us and Oatman (We lost count around 50).

The little store was part handmade jewelry, part Rte. 66 souvenirs, part museum. The gentleman running the place was friendly and knowledgeable. The area had also hosted film/movie making. Last stop to get a cold drink on the way to Oatman. Stop and stretch your legs and check it out.

Good spot to stop a enjoy a Route 66 classic site. You can get a souvenir or cold drink, learn a bit about 66 history and a bit about movie history. I recommend you stop at places like this on 66 and spend a few bucks so they stay open for the future travelers along this historic highway.
