Illinois Overnight Needed for May 24th

As part of a work relocation I have a one way RV trip planned across the country starting on May 23rd (not the best weekend for overnighters but it is what it is). I have found locations during my trip except for the area of Lasalle/Peru Illinois for the night of May 24th. There is a KOA there but they require a 3 night stay.

I am looking for suggestions for the LaSalle/Peru area for an overnight (May 24th). I am trying to stay as close to I-80 as possible.

Looks like there is a Walmart there? Thoughts?

Other Suggestions?

There is a Flying J at La Salle, Fill up with 200 dollars of gas, use their internet and stay the night. Use them all the time while travelling. Right off I80

I didn't know you could do overnighters at Flying J. Are there any requirements? Ie. Minimum fuel fill up, etc?

No requirement to overnight at FJ other than wearing ear plugs! It can get very loud.

Also RV spots in front fill up quickly. May have to find a place in back with the trucks.

I used the WalMart there last July for one night. I used the far north edge of the lot. That's where the overnight semis park and where the semis come and go during the night. I'd try to stay toward the south end of the lot as it would be quieter. Pictures from the overnight stay at the Peru WalMart:
