Usually not the cheapest fuel prices but they let RVers overnight for free and have a lot of amenities when out on the road. Also pretty easy in and out for big rigs.
Here is a link to a handy guide showing all the locations.

THESE ARE THE BEST THINGS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Eddie and I use them more then anything, try to stay in at least one or two. The one in knoxville TN is great andwe like the one in Haw River NC and there is a good one on Iowa MO boarder can not remember its name, will ask Eddie and all over some are not the best, but most of them are real nice, we like to part by the semis just seams a little quieter and private. Most truckers are nice, Great site Ray thanks for posting for all the new comeers. we love them.aileenMay 22, 2014 at 6:41 pm #3457
Ya, I feel pretty safe in the back with all the truckers, I just make sure I’m well out of their way coming an going in a spot along the far outsides of the lot. Sleep well with the drone of all the diesel engines. 🙂May 22, 2014 at 6:48 pm #3459JamesParticipant
Remember also if you pay a small fee you can always take showers there alsoMay 22, 2014 at 7:21 pm #3461
Great info! Thanks.May 23, 2014 at 5:37 am #3469
Some flying Js if you buy fuel that let you have a shower free, not all of them, but depends on which one you are at. the ones we go to so far have been free, but may change the way things are changing. aileenMay 23, 2014 at 6:17 am #3471
There is (or was) a Flying J by London Ontario and I used to wonder why there were RV’s back of the lot. Now I know. There is a FJ at Napanee Ontario as well. Always had the cheapest fuel around with great access to hwy 401. Definitely going to check out our route south against the map Ray posted.May 23, 2014 at 6:26 am #3474
you also can get there little fuel book, that they give you, have to ask, and it has all the flying Js in them, to show youwhat each has and where they are. We have worn quite a few of them and cracker barrel books out. Cracker barrels will let you stay, also, we have stayed over night in one and they never worried about it. A lot of them have nice big parking spots for rvs. But Eddie being a truck driver, doesnt really worry about which one, he can get them in pretty good. with thedogs try to get good spots at the flying js, nice places most of them.

Cracker Barrel will let you stay…….cool. Thanks for the information. Sorry Norma but Aileen is Yoda.May 23, 2014 at 10:49 am #3487Bob and NancyMember
We just discovered Flying J’s this past trip to SC in Feb. If we had known about staying free earlier we would have saved tons of $ on over night stays. And I liked fresh, warm Cinnamon Buns in the morning. We slept very well, I felt very safe. :yes:May 23, 2014 at 11:15 am #3489JamesParticipant
just an fyi not all truckstops offer free parking. try and get information ahead of time to see if they charge to park over night. A lot of truckstops in cali do charge to park over nightMay 23, 2014 at 11:49 am #3490
A great app for all kinds of reasons is http://www.allstays.com/apps/camprv.htm. It’s well worth the 10 bucks.
It includes a ton of info and one thing I really like is it shows all the truck stops and info on them.
Independent Truck Stops, Flying Js, Pilot Travel Centers, Loves Travel Stops, Petro Centers, TA Travel Centers, Petro Canada. Includes info on fuel lanes, dump stations, propane, restaurants, internet, laundry, showers, tire care, travel stores, ATMs, Western Union, UPS, FedEx and more. Are they RV friendly.May 23, 2014 at 12:08 pm #3491
Well we asked permission in the one we stayed in and they did not care, we had breakfast the next day and it was fine. I dont know if they all do, but we parked as far as we could away from the main parking and was not in the way. we have seen other campers in some so it must be something normal. I would ask first. Ido not even remeber where this cracker barrel was, but it was a nice one. Eddie would remember, but not here, he is working right now, aileenMay 23, 2014 at 8:19 pm #3508LarryParticipant
