Cracker Barrel overnight RV parking map and guide This map shows all 662 locations in the continental United States. Green icons indicate there is RV parking allowed, Yellow icons indicate a need to ask the management due to circumstances beyond their control.  Red icons indicate there is No overnight parking at this location. About Me and the Quest The quest for mapping Cracker Barrel’s legendary overnight RV parking spaces started in November 2019 in Rialto California and ended in October 2020 in Ventura California. I followed a season and weather appropriate route across the USA and ended up with a complete Google Map list of all Cracker Barrel restaurant and country store locations, complete with photos, reviews and gps data. 661 locations in total. Each location was visited, photographed and reviewed as part of my Google Guide goal of reaching a Level 10 Guide status by Spring 2021. As of the date of this blog post, the photos and videos have been seen more then 63 million times

Shadow Hills RV Resort, Indio CA

Feels just like home! Shadow Hills RV Resort family owned, very clean and well kept. The pond provides the perfect setting for an afternoon stroll. The heated salt water pool is so nice!  I meet so many nice people, made new friends too.  I love the way the owners and staff all work hard to make you feel like part of a family. They have free wifi, lots of events going on in the season and very helpful maintenance staff.  Both paved and grass sites are available for RVs and the hook ups are easy to use.  I used the gym and media rooms a lot as well as getting in a few games of Darts and Ping Pong with friends in their game room. The resort has some supplies for sale in the office, ice and a soda machine in the pool, patio area. A big plus at Shadow Hills is the clean, well stocked bathrooms. They provide a lot there, shaving cream, razors, lotions, hair dryers and more. The laundry has plenty of machines, irons and ironing boards too.  Classy to say the least. I will always stay at Shad

A little slice of Arizona Heaven! I loved my stay at Valley Vista RV Resort!  The staff were all so very nice and helpful. The resort is easy to find off the interstate and once in the park,the office is easy to pull up to.  I found this place using google maps and that was a plus for me. The marketing staff must have done a good job of making sure they were listing correctly. The resort is mostly gravel but nearly all the spaces looked like they were pull throughs. I have a van and didn't need that option but it's nice to know. The sewer, water and electric were easy to hook up to. They have both 30 and 50 amp and 2 spigots for water.  I was there when it was not very busy and found it nice and quite at night. The pool area is well maintained and easy to access. It is closed at night and open again in the morning. They have a jacuzzi as well. The restrooms are also very clean as was the laundry area. I had a nice cup of free coffee in the morning in the common room and watched

  Great RV Park, Great Staff, Great Camping Experience!! I had a last minute change of plans and called Canyon Trail RV Park after finding them on Google Maps (the app). I needed another place to camp for the night and I was happy to find they had space. When I arrived, - was very helpful with getting my reservation set up and I was into my spot in 20 mins.  The easy pull through was great even though I only have a van conversion but still, it was a breeze getting hooked up. The electrical box and sewer are well maintained and easy to use.  I was hooked up and ready for the night in no time.  They have Free WiFi, a Dog run area, Laundry, Cable TV, BBQ Area, Pool and Spa. Just about everything you need, not to mention beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and landscape. Lots of photo opportunities right there in the park. The restrooms are close by and very clean. This is always a plus for me. Cleanest I seen in a while!  I was also impressed with the office set up.  Clean and or
