Windsor Ontario to Myrtle Beach, SC

There is a group of 3 trailers, 24 ft, and 2 fifth wheels, going form Windsor Ont to Myrtle Beach SC in 3 weeks. We want to leave in the evening, (4 or 5pm) and make it to the bottom of ohio on I77 for around 11 pm. The question is, are there good pull in rest areas or service centres to saty in over night, electricity supplied or is a campground the best alternative. I am sure it is going to be hot and AC would be nice to sleep. We are making the rest of the trip in the morning, 6 am.

Anyone have any suggestions or experiences?

To answer why we are taking I77, for the scenery.

probably no electric at rest areas.
there are always walmarts and truck stops. no power at walmarts, maybe at truck stops.
i use this allstays website extensively. it is kept up to date by users.

I have never seen a U.S Interstate highway rest area with electric service available. Also, some states prohibit overnight camping in rest areas. Check a campground guide, like Good Sam, for more accurate information. And, there is growing legislation prohibiting big trucks idling their engines for long periods, so I have read of some fuel chains providing electric plugs, for a fee, so the drivers can run their air conditioners. This is relatively new, and not widely available, but a Google search might reveal locations.
