Sep 01, 2021: RVer reports that Free Overnight RV Parking is allowed for one night only, in separate truck/RV N of main lot, confirming 17 earlier reports from July 2006 thru June 2021. 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.

Nov 15, 2021: Info provided by IA DOT confirms numerous reports from Apr 2020 & 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. This location generally opens for the spring in mid-April and closes for the Winter in mid-November; dates may vary based on weather, including temperatures and snowfall. 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. Trash receptacles; no other known amenities.
Directions
SB I-35, ~ Milepost 51, serving SB traffic
