Check out www.freecampsites.net
Here is a spot we found last summer. Only 10 miles out of Flagstaff Az. Did I say free.

All Stays

We do a lot of Walmart camping. In four years I have never had an issue. We use Allstays and yes some do not allow overnight parking. We have stayed at Flying Js, Pilots, Cracker Barrelís, and yes, God forbid, a rest area.we have stayed in other parking lots as well. I carry a concealed weapon , but have never felt unsafe or had an incident. Use good judgment and you will be fine. One Walmart near Chattanooga even had a security guy meet and greet us, escorting us to a spot. Always call ahead, be respectful and shop when you can.

Thanks, this question was last June 2017, we went to CT from AZ,, Wife hated the first night we stayed at a Walmart, even though we had protection, and no problems, so then the cost of the trip went up with Marriotts,, which some parking lots are very small and maneuvering a 60 foot rig and truck was a blast. Trip was stressful enough with driving 500 miles a day, only me. If it was just me going alone , I would trace my trip better and stay, I didnt mind it.

If your are an ELK can stay at most lodges for a small fee. They normally have hookups and dump.



Also Good Sam has a very good trip planner, and shows campgrounds along the route. (not all of them but most)

As it turns out, Allstays is no longer Android compatible, so can't even evaluate it.
