What route are you taking? If I40, there is Delta Ridge in Forrest City, AR. Nothing but basics. Ok for overnighter.

We made that drive a few years ago. It was our first time in an rv with the family (wife, 2 kids). Not sure how far between stops or how long you have but here were our stops along I40:

Night 1: Lake Dardanelle State Park. Lots of spots right on the water, playground, beach, and really nice visitor center. Full hookups and really reasonable rates. Showers were family-style and clean. We plan on stopping here again.

Night 2: We made it all the way to Amarillo and stayed at Fort Amarillo RV Resort on the west side of Amarillo. Had an indoor pool, full hookups. Spots were close but we just spent a night.

Night 3: Albuquerque North/Bernalillo KOA. Full hookups. Spots were close. Pool was nice. We'd probably stop here again.

We detoured from a straight shot to Vegas at this point and stayed at Monument Valley (we enjoyed it but it was expensive for no hookups) and Grand Canyon before getting back on I40 and stopping at Hoover Dam and finally into Vegas.

Looking back it was a lot of driving every day. We did enjoy the trip but will take more time next time we head that way.

Oklahoma, just about every casino will allow overnights. If you need hook up Firelake Grand Casino, Shawnee OK.

Albuquerque NM.
Isleta Casino RV park and Lake. Casino on opposite side of Interstate. Full Hook up

Alcoma Pueblo NM. Near Grants
Sky City Casino. Full Hook up.

Holbrook Az,
Family owned.
OK RV Park, Full Hook up

Kingman AZ.
Blake Ranch RV Park, Full Hook up
Family owned
Donít miss Oatman AZ visit. Super cool town

Most are on the I-40 corridor.
Donít patronize the Casinos so no reviews.

Dang, June is during the period most of us avoid Vegas due to heat, so plan for full hookup stops or areas where you can run a generator for a/c.
How you RV to a destination depends on how much time you have, how far you want to drive each day, and if you are a pre-planning or spur of the moment type of human.
We used to pre-plan every stop and make reservations. Works if you have limited time, but we passed so many interesting places on our way to get to the next predetermined stop in time.
Now, we have unlimited time, so we just start driving, usually with a distant destination as a goal. Liz, the navigator, looks for interesting routes, stops and places to camp while we are driving. She will call a few hours ahead for reservations if necessary. Usually works just fine, but if it doesn't, we always find an alternative. You will easily find numerous RV parks or places to camp along all of the main highway corridors. And if you venture off the main corridors, you can find some hidden gems. Google is a wonderful tool!
Happy camping and enjoy your trip.
