Oct 16, 2020: RVer report confirms 15 earlier reports from July 2006 thru Apr 2020. Free Overnight RV Parking is allowed for one night only, in separate truck/RV N of main lot. This lot is often extremely busy & full, with painted lines delineating parking spaces close to 70 ft long. Pull as far forward in spaces as possible, to leave room for a smaller RV behind you. DO NOT EXTEND SLIDES as they may be struck by trucks arriving after dark. Well lit, clean; one RVer calls it 'very safe.' Possible truck noise from many trucks parked here. Store also has a full-hookup RV park, at rates that exceed our usual maximum of $20/night. Dump station on N side of lot, near W entrance, with non-potable rinse water. Free potable water fill ~ 200 ft E of dump station. Free Wi-Fi signal generally accessible from parking area.

Apr 20, 2020: Info provided by IA DOT confirms numerous reports from Nov 2019 & earlier. Overnight RV Parking is allowed on a seasonal basis. Entrance ramp to I-35 is on an uphill grade, and winter weather often causes unsafe re-entry onto I-35. State of IA allows RVs and other vehicles to park in a rest area for a maximum of 24 hours. This rest area has parallel parking along both curbs. No other amenities. On April 20, 2020, this location opened for the summer of 2020.
