Traveling to Nappanee in December, Where to overnight?

We will be traveling to Nappanee in December for factory service. I occurred to me to check for open campgrounds between Philadelphia and Indiana and I could not find any. What have other RVers used for their overnight stops? Or is there a reference listing year round camping?

Thanks

Looks like Allstays can give you that info, at least state-by-state:
Campgrounds in Pennsylvania Open All Year

HTH!

You can stop on the Ohio Turnpike. They have electric, tho the rv slots are short. Dump station as well. RVparkreviews is a good source.

We traveled to Nappanee last December ( from KC about 670 mi) and really couldn't come up with any CG's that were open and made sense for a stopping point. We just drove straight through and that might not be for everyone. You should also check RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks for options.

There's always Walmart. A lot of people use them all the time, but I have only stopped there twice when campgrounds were full or closed.
If you really want a campground try a more southerly route, like I-70 to Columbus, and you will find campgrounds that are open in the winter.

We stayed in a number of Walmart on the way there in the winter. It had been raining for a number of days and we were concerned about the condition of the unpaved RV sites. The one in Kokomo Indiana was our last stop.

I always spent the night at Cabela's in Wheeling, WV when traveling to or from the factory.

That mountain aire is likely too long for the Ohio TPK RV sites. 40' is the limit.
