Single night stay near Daytona?

Supposedly the D200 is still on. We are planning on travelling down from VA in the week before. It is a roughly 14 hour drive towing. The gates won't open for us until Thursday morning (last I heard) for racers and crew. What I would like to do is get down on Wednesday and overnight somewhere in order to make the most of Thursday for bike set up and camp set up. My question to yall:
Aside from a truck stop or Wally World, is there an inexpensive place to overnight nearby? No water or power needed, as we can run on generator and FW tank.
Alternatively, near Fruitland Park works too. I would like to visit my dad and his brothers that are buried there.
Whatcha got? TIA!

Whatever you do, stay away from Daytona/Speedway K O A. It was the noisiest campground we ever stayed at! Between the Daytona Speedway, the airport, road construction, and traffic; it might have been a little bit quiet late, late at night. But then again, the road construction was going on mostly at night.

Well, we kinda expect that. Lol. We spend 14 weekends a year at races. We are a rowdy bunch. I did find the KOA fees a bit high for a night. At least IMO....i basically need a place to park, walk the doggo and chat with people.
Oh, and thanks for the airport tip. That would be nice to NOT hear air traffic.

maybe call some of the local Church offices, they may be happy to have you for a one night stand.

Holiday Travel Park may work for you.

http://www.holidaytravelrvpark.com/

Have not been to HTP in a few years, but have heard and suspect it is still good.

Far and away my favorite in the area is Tomoka State Park, IF you can get in. VERY NICE private sites, but a little tight for bigger rigs. It's usually full around Bike Week, but this year could be different and you might be lucky and get the single night you want. Reservations are through https://www.reserveamerica.com/, so there's that to deal with.

I actually have done that when it is literally overnight only (get there late/ leave early). I'll look one up with a really big parking lot and call them ahead of time. Most are willing. This time the stop will be for the better part of the day though.

I kinda lump them all in with truck stops and Wal-Mart. Not much fun to spend the day at. Lol. I should have been more specific that it was going to be a 18-20 hour stop.

Thanks, the avatar photo was snapped at Virginia International Raceway.
This is probably going to work!!! The price is right and so is the location. I can probably even leave the TT there and just take the truck to Fruitland Park. I'm waiting to hear back from them as I type. Thank you so much!!

Check out Nova Family Campground in Port Orange. Nothing fancy, but adequate with lots of water/electric and dry sites.

So some of us racers hit HTP in Bunnell. Awesome suggestion. The place was clean and folks were friendly. I had a full hook up site because of the size but didn't need one. They even let a last minute guy roll in with us for one night.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
