Look at a google Earth image of the airport, you won't even see an airplane on the ground. The rate is about $35/night.

I carry next exit which is a book that has exit info for many different highways. When I get an idea of where and when I want to stop, I check that and compare it to RVparkreviews.com to see where to stop. Some places frequently recommended are Carolina crossroads in NC or Pedro's south of the border in SC just below the NC/SC state line. We overnighted at pecan park rv resort in Jacksonville FL.

I 95 overnight Rest stops

I too have stayed at Pecan Park. It is a very convenient and clean layover stop.
Carolina Crossroads looks very nice. It's just too close to me getting home. If I make it that far, I'm parking in my driveway.

I've stopped at Whispering Pines in Rincon, GA- very level; maybe 5-6 miles off of the highway.

Pecan Park RV in Jacksonville, FL (a little expensive for an overnight at $44, but paved and mostly level spots is hard to argue). The mention of airplanes at another reminded me of here. They're pretty constant, but the people are friendly and arriving late isn't an issue.

I've long looked at Pedro's at SOTB.

And we have stopped at Kosmos RV Park in Glen Allen, VA as well.

We did hit the Walmart in Dillon, SC one night that it was cool enough to not need A/C (no generator for me).

Camping World in Pooler, GA exit 102 has plenty of parking and they let you plug in overnight, if you get there early enough to get close to an electric island. They're at the end of a dead end road so if their parking lot is full you can park along the road in front safely but without electric.

I've been following this closely as we are heading to FL in December. I'd do the 14 hours straight but the DW isn't so fond of it. I had seen Bass Lake, and it looked like a good overnight spot. Glad to hear it sounds like its and easy in/ out and big rig friendly, because I'm about 58' and I'd rather just leave the truck hitched up. Think I may just book a site there and go for it!

I'm 60' overall, plenty of room.

There are several flying j's on I-95 in NC and SC and Georgia. They allow overnight parking. Google Flying J's for locations.

Truth be told, when driving down I-95 (from MD to FL), I prefer going without reservations. Unless it is a holiday weekend, there are usually transient stops that are easy to stop and spend the night. If you're spending a couple days, maybe pre-plan and be picky; otherwise, find the closest campground when you're tired of driving and pull in.

Do any of the free sites (Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel, etc.) have restrictions on putting the slides out? (I've heard that in rest stops and truck stops slides are a no-no just for safety sake.)
