Caltrans (and Oregon DOT and WSDOT) most certainly do operate rest areas.
Usually just a vending machine in a cage and some overused,
under-maintained toilets and lots of parking.

Oklahoma does have concessions plazas (though not as many as before).
These are on turnpike medians and typically have gas, clean toilets and a
convenience store as a minimum.  Larger/newer ones normally have some form
of fast food and (yes, this is weird) video rental.  What Oklahoma calls a
rest area is typically similar to the west coast examples, except there are
no toilets, just parking.  Maybe a view if you're lucky.
