Overnight stop along I-81 South

I am looking for an overnight spot along I -81S in Pennsylvania, specifically Wilkes Barre area. Has anyone stayed at the Mohegan Sun Casino - Pocono Downs? Seems like a place to grab a meal, little entertainment and hit the road the next morning. Not opposed to a campground if there is a decent one within 50 miles or so but really don't need one. Thanks!

We stayed at a CG called 80-81 for years but there are condos there now :(. After that we stayed at Francis Slocum State Park.
It's less than 20 miles from WB.

We stay at the Jonestown KOA 1 exit north of the junction of 81 and 78. Just a minute off the highway. Clean and convenient.

Pilot travel centre along the 81 in DuPont (between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre) exit 175 used to have electrical hookup for $10 or $15 for an overnight stop. You can call to confirm : 570-655-4116. There is also a fresh water fill and dump station.

interesting idea...now that you mention it, some of the casinos I have been to have very large paking lots that would accomodate a MH...good food there too. maybe this should be its own thread, but I know the vernon downs casino in vernon NY has a large parking space and would be a quiet stop if anybody is in the area. its about 4 miles from the NYS thruway.
