Free overnight RV parking usually isnt that hard to find but in the last 3 years of our travels we realized that we prefer Cracker Barrels over Walmarts & Truck Stops.
The first time we spent a night at a Truck Stop was on our 2nd trip in the RV we stayed between Trucks on I-90 towards Boston. We had no idea how to use the heater in the RV nor how long the battery would last so we didn’t use it at all. I ( hotblooded ) woke up to the RV being cozy 47 F warm and Andrea laying with the dogs wearing 498 layers of clothing. The Trucks next to us idled or had loud generators running which made sleep nealy impossible.
here is our glorious spot
We then decided to aim for walmart since we hard good things about them. Last year we stayed at one in Georgia on a saturday night ( big mistake ) and could barely sleep due to local youth hooting and hollering and having redneck drag races all night long.
Georgia on my mind…
After that experience we decided to focus more on Cracker Barrels and have not been disapointed. They usually have their own parking lot, are very quiet once they close and they open early so you can grab breakfast &coffee and get on the road fast. The staff is very friendly and always interested in their “overnighters”
