When we travel from one destination to the next, we tend to stop at either a KOA or a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. For the most part Kampgrounds Of America are fairly dependable in what they offer. Some are a bit more cramped than others and some have a parking lot feel, but I know what to expect. I feel the same at a Cracker Barrel location. There usually are spots to park the RV overnight and the menu doesn’t vary from one location to the next. However, the service and food quality does vary at each restaurant. But like the KOA, I know what to expect.
Some say staying overnight at a Cracker Barrel is free, but I find that it might cost as much as if I stayed at a KOA, but without the full hookups. When at a Cracker Barrel we tend to eat dinner and sometimes breakfast, so the overall cost is about the same.
We’ve stayed at other campgrounds along our path and even a Walmart or two. I have found that my stay in a Walmart parking lot is usually a noisy venture, if you are allowed to stay. Harves Hosts are also spots we stay at periodically. However, many times the host locations are not near my route.
But wherever we stay while on the road, Aria always finds her spot to relax.
As a side note to this post – I receive no compensation from any of the companies above. However, if any would like to sponsor me, I would be happy to drive around the country and rate their locations for how RV friendly they are. Enjoy!
