May 9th, 2021 Walmart Owatonna

Just like every other Walmart. It is fairly quiet for a Walmart and it is far from the main highway so a lot quieter than a rest stop. Park in the back by Culver's.

May 8th, 2021 Rest Area

This rest area is a one way so when you first pull in go towards the semi truck parking and it is on your left. The water is not drinkable but works to clean out your tube when you are done emptying the tanks -- This is an awesome rest area with bathrooms, free wifi, and vending machines.

May 8th, 2021 Top of Iowa Welcome Center

Passed through to use the restroom but this is an awesome rest stop! Tons of vending machines & free wifi. Also there is a dump stations for RV's.

May 7th, 2021 Peoria Public parking

Really nice free parking lot by a museum and river walk. 2 hr parking limit during day and then after 5 pm you can park for however long.

May 7th, 2021 Walmart

Just like any other walmart. Stay in the way back of the lot towards the road. I was also able to reach their wifi which was nice.

May 6th, 2021 Walmart

Stayed in the back lot next to the gas station where all the truckers were with no problems. I asked inside and they said they assumed it would be fine because all the truckers park there.

May 6th, 2021 Riley Park (Wifi)

A really nice park with free wifi from the town. The park has a stream, playground, skate park, etc. I believe this park closes at sunset, but you could probably still get the wifi around town. The wifi was fast enough for me to stream a show which was awesome.

May 6th, 2021 Walmart

I didn't have any problems all night but I saw some no RV or Truck parking signs all over the place the next morning. The thing is there were 10 semi's already there when I went to sleep so I assumed it was fine. Stay at your own risk? & I reccomend to get there at night and leave in the morning

May 4th, 2021 Bus & RV Street Parking

Awesome place for one night! There is also really good Wifi you can get if you park in the RV/Bus parking right next to the visitor center. There was some noise until 11pm from a party but nothing terrible.

May 4th, 2021 St Albans Dump station & water

Also there is free camping on the opposite side of the playground. Sadly all three of the spots were full when I got in around 6pm.

May 4th, 2021 St Albans Public/coty RV park

I got in around 6pm on a Tuesday, sadly all spots were full. But it looks like a great place to spend a night or two. I dumped my tanks and got some water and went on my way.

May 4th, 2021 St Albans Dump station & water

In a public park on the river across from Kroger. When you pull in it is on your right. There is a dump station and also potable water to fill your tanks.

May 3rd, 2021 Cash's Auto shop

Super nice staff! I brought my diesel RV here after being turned away from a few place, I just needed an oil change. Were very helpful and made sure they got the right oil, etc.

May 2nd, 2021 Walmart

Just like every other Walmart. Park in the way back towards the road. No problems all night, a little noisy but by 11pm everything was quiet just some road noise.

May 2nd, 2021 Walmart Staunton

Spent one Sunday night here, got in at 6pm and there were already about 10 RV's here. It was the busiest Walmart for overnight parking I have ever seen.

May 1st, 2021 Cape Point Campground, North Carolina Outer Banks

Was planning on only staying one night but can't beat a $20 campsite on the outer banks, so I ended up staying a second night. I would reccomend booking your campsire when you get there so you can see what is open and how you want to position yourself with the wind. The farthest west camp road has the only real protection (a tree line) from the wind if you are worried about that. I stayed in spot J013 as it was perfectley positioned close to the bathrooms, showers, and a water spiget steps away. It was windy both days that I was there so if it is hard for you to sleep because of that I wouldn't reccomend it. There is also a south beach access on the southwest side of the campground which was nice as it was not very busy for a friday & saturday. But again it will probably be windy, I got sand blasted the whole walk to the beach once I got out there it wasn't bad.

April 28th, 2021 Walmart

Oh and also I stayed at the Water front park near main street in Washington, NC one night and definitely reccommend that. It usually clears out after sunset and is super quiet all night. That location is on this app, I think it is called Waterfront park.

April 28th, 2021 Walmart

Just like any other Walmart. Park on the garden side away from the building. I was here with one other RV and had no problems. Also I was sort of able to reach there wifi which was nice. There was a helicopter that went right over head very low three differnet times in one hour other than that it was very quiet all night.

April 27th, 2021 Water front Memorial Park

Stayed here for one night in a 24 ft RV. Got in just before sunset and sat on the visitor center porch rocking chairs to watch the sunset over the water. There also are a few swing chairs and a little free library in this park. I was able to reach the public wifi where I was and it was pretty fast. Police were patroling all night but they didn't stop to ask or tell me to leave so it must be okay. I was here with another camper van. On the map there are two public bathrooms a couple blocks away from this park, not sure if they are open or what there hours are.

April 26th, 2021 Walmart

Saw "no overnight truck parking" signs so went into ask. The person at the front desk basically said, you are not supposed to because you might get towed but you can stay if you want to take the chance. I saw another camper so I decided to stay. I had no problem all night staying in the farthest lot towards burger king. The next morning I left about 8am. You are able to sort of get the Walmart wifi but where I was you can connect to Burger Kings wifi which was super fast. -- But after all is said and done stay at your own risk because the lady said you might get towed.

April 25th, 2021 Walmart Parking lot

No problems at all. Just like any other Walmart, park in the rear close to the road. I was able to get their wifi all the way out there in the back of the lot to stream a show.

April 24th, 2021 Walmart

Walmart parking lot stay in the way back towards the road. I was able to get the Walmart wifi all the way at the back of the lot to stream a show. Just like any other Walmart.. safe travels

April 24th, 2021 Public bathrooms

Put this as other category because I couldn't find one for bathrooms. But this is a public restroom building on Nash St. next to thr fire department. it is open from 8am-9pm. Also there are two water fountains out front.

April 21st, 2021 Rest Stop

Rest Stop on the northboard side. Really nice clean bathrooms with water fountians. Cars are on the left and all other vehicles on the right. We had a 24ft RV and stayed on the left with the cars because we could fit in one spot. Also the the truck side was full of semis in the morning. So if you are on the smaller side of RVs don't go and take up a full semi spot. Also there are vending machines!

April 21st, 2021 Murray Blvd-Ashley River Charleston SC

The water side of this road is under conatruction from the about the Lenwood Blvd intersection west. It was packed until about 4:30 pm and we were able to park our 24 ft RV. I would recommend parking closer to the Park but it can be hard to find a spot. It was a beautiful night and sunset. No problem all night, police patrol throughout the night. There were two other smaller RV's and a camper van that spent the night other than that it was fulls of cars. The street sweeper came through during the middle of the night and then we were woken up by a landscape crews leaf blower around 8am. But other than that no problema got in around 5pm left at 9 am the next morning.

PLEASE PLEASE be respectful when you are here especially if you parked across from houses. This place is so awesome I would hate to see it removed. Also to get to this spot becareful which roads you choose because there might be some dead ends or really small streets.

April 19th, 2021 Peters Point Park

Tons of free parking and access to the beach. They also have 3 or 4 indoor stall showers in the bathrooms + two outdoor showers. Not sure if they lock at a certain time but I was here from 5-6pm and they were still open. There are also water fountains too which is nice.

April 15th, 2021 Florida Welcome Center I-10

Stayed here for one night with tons of semis and other vans/ rv's staying overnight. No problems at all, there are vending machines inside near the bathrooms. Also there are two water fountains that are open! (in COVID tines they are sometimes hard to come by) I believe there was security there all night or atleast was there at 9pm when I showed up. Also they have really fast WIFI that you are able to get in the parking lot.

April 15th, 2021 Walmart - Clearview

Stayed here one night with no problems. Park on the garden center side towards the highway. It was suprisingly quiet all night so I slept very well. You are able to reach the wifi from your car which is nice, it is slower but it works.

April 14th, 2021 Library wifi

Really nice library with tons of places to work. There is a poster that says the wifi is on Mon-Sat 8am-8pm which I believe you can reach from the parking lot.

April 13th, 2021 Public parking lot

Awesome spot in Ocean Springs. Got in around 5pm then walked 15 ish minutes to watch the sunset at the beach and walk around downtown. Library is about a 10 minute walk from this parking spot. No problems all night, parked my 24 ft RV near the back of the lot away from the street. Sadly the electrical was not on but still a great spot for the night.
