HI,
I wouldn't spend the money to find overnight parking spots. I know that I can usually go to the following:

Super Walmarts ( sometimes call first)
Sams Club
Costco
Cracker Barrel
Flying J
Loves
K Mart
Lowes
Home Depot
Elks ( if a member)

So there is a lot of them however they are not for camping such as putting out awnings, chairs or anything else that would indicate you are camping.

Enjoy!

I use an Android App called Allstays Camp and RV. You can input a city and filter for various types of areas for staying, including Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel, etc. I think it cost a buck or two, but worth it. There are other ways to do the same thing, maybe a bit of work. Almost every type of store/truck stop mentioned has a corporate website with a store locator, including phone numbers.

I've been a member for several years and feel it is well worth the $24.95 price. The information is verified by the site owner - he often even calls the businesses to make sure a report is accurate. To me, it is worth the price to know I have accurate info about the place I am planning on spending the night. And can feel comfortable there will be no knock on the door in the wee hours to tell me we must move on. There are nearly 10,000 places listed in the database and most have clear directions to the spot (including GPS) as well as information about nearby restaurants and services.

+1 to this and what follows. But some one's trying to make a buck. What the hell, why not?

In case some of you have forgot, making a buck is the definition of The American Way!
