Overnight staying


Im planning our way from Niagara Falls, NY to Elkhart, IN on the end of May 2011. It's the first time to boondock in the USA and I need your recommended anchorage on this way.

Thanks for your help

Exit 76.9 (Sandusky exit) on the OH Turnpike westbound has RV overnight parking with water & a dump station.

Ooh, just looked, if you don't want to go that far, exit 139.5 (Lorain exit, 2 counties east) on the OH Turnpike westbound has the same.

OH Turnpike service plaza listings In case you want to know fuel/eat stops.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Turnpike rest areas are my favorite. Convient place to stop with food and fuel available and much safer than rest areas on non toll roads.
An RV'r is someone driving a $300,000.00 Motorhome towing a $40,000.00 car and looking for a free place to park.

We have stayed at the Wal-Mart in Elkhart several times. Be warned they have a very loud parking lot cleaner that will come right next to the RV.
