I'm finding that other campers on the road can't always find an open campground or can't find one that might be close to where they are traveling (and are tired of traveling for the day), so I'm going to offer a few suggestions.
First, check out this link;
It is the 2010 Driving Laws for the U.S. and Canada. It gives you a lot of good info, including those states that do or do not allow parking overnight in rest areas. It does not tell you those states that have visitor centers/welcome centers that allow over night parking. That is another possibility, but sometimes you have to either do a search on that state or show up at a welcome center and see if they have signs that say "NO OVERNIGHT PARKING!!" If they DON'T have those signs, you should be good to go....I just recommend DON'T PUT YOUR SLIDE OUTS OUT. You could get them taken off by some big, old truck!!
Then there are Wal-Mart parking lots and Flying J's.
Dan and I do our best to cater to campgrounds/RV parks though, but there have been those times when it hasn't been possible.
Hope this helps!!
