Welcome to Iowa!
Home of the
the I 80 Truck Stop,
is located on I 80, at Exit 284,
in Walcott, Iowa.
Built in 1964 by Standard Oil, it was
taken over a year later by Amoco.
In 1992, it became part of
Truckstops of America (TA).
They offer a huge trucker's store, a
chrome shop, large service bays,
various restaurants, showers
and many other amenities.
There is a "Super Truck Show Room",
where you can see highly detailed trucks
inside their own trucking museum.
The I 80 TA also has an annual
"Truckers Jamboree" to celebrate both
truckers and the trucking industry.
The "I 80" is not just a truck stop,
it is an experience.
