1000 Islands to Georgia Rest Stops

I'm sure this is a popular route because I see RV's travel down the 137 over the 1000 Island bridge and onto I8-1 all the time.

So where do you stop for a break from driving and also where to spend the night.

I don't care if it's Walmart, Flying J, road side rest stops or even someones driveway....LOL.

Just a heads up so I/wife can keep an eye out for when we are close.

Much appreciated from the experienced RV'ers.

I like using Roadside rest areas and most truck stops. However, with truck stops it's best to call ahead and get there early as spots get taken very fast when sunset arrives. Wal-Marts are okay but many municipalities have restrictions regarding overnight parking there so you can't rely on staying at them. If you know where you'd like to stop call the stores and see what their policy is.

If you are traveling on interstates, the download an use either of these apps: iExit or iExit Trucks. The truck version shows rest stops (with facilities) and trucker rest areas (no facilities). I like it better for finding truck stops for diesel fuel.

Not on interstates? A good paper state highway map usually shows rest parks, which are like "rest areas".

Check each state regulations on staying overnight in the rest areas. Some states allow it, some do not. Also, while in general Walmart permits overnighting at manager's discretion, many cities and towns prohibit it.

Personally, I use RVTripWizard to plan a route and look for campgrounds along the way. I like reserving ahead because as I read somewhere recently: "Thousands of RVs are being sold every year, but number of new campgrounds opening up every year is small."
