How to Find Semitruck Parking Near Me

There are plenty of parking options for semitrucks; the trick is finding them. Perhaps the most popular parking option is a truck stop. Many national truck stop chains have mobile apps you can use to help locate them. And some let you reserve a parking spot ahead of time. For example, the TrustSmart app for TA-Petro lets you reserve a parking spot up to 30 days in advance.

Rest stops are another popular option for semitruck parking. Many rest stops offer temporary and sometimes overnight parking for commercial trucks. Be sure to do your research before parking overnight to make sure it’s legal. A popular app for finding rest stops is USA Rest Stops, available for both iOS and Google Play.

In addition to truck stops and rest stops, some businesses — including hotels, restaurants, casinos, and big-box stores like Walmart — will permit semitrucks in their parking lots. The hope is that you will patronize the business while you’re there. Below, we have the list of places that frequently allow truck parking, but to ask about semitruck parking, you can call the business ahead of time or stop at the customer service desk to ask permission. (For more on where you can park a car overnight, see our list of places that offer free and legal overnight parking.)

Parking availability for trucks at motels and hotels will vary, depending on the location’s parking facilities and policies. The following national hotel chains commonly offer free overnight parking for semitrucks:

Restaurants with Truck Parking Near Me

Some restaurants near the interstate have parking lots that can accommodate trucks. However, it’s unlikely you’ll be allowed to park overnight.

Many of the apps and websites mentioned above, such as Trucker Path and Truck Parking USA, include truck-friendly restaurants in their parking databases. We have the list of chain restaurants that frequently have truck-friendly parking lots.

Many casinos allow trucks and RVs to park overnight in their parking lots for free — in hopes that drivers will stop in the casino. Some casinos even offer amenities for overnighters like toilets, water, and RV hookups. Plus, casino amenities often include restaurants and shopping. Some casinos put a cap on the length of your stay, but you can typically stay one to three nights. Below, we have the list of major national casino chains that typically offer parking for trucks.

Note: One resource for finding casinos that allow overnight parking is Casino Camper, which is geared toward RV drivers but may apply to truck drivers, as well. While you can’t assume that the casinos listed will allow semitrucks to park, the website is a good place to start your search.

Walmarts with Truck Parking Near Me

Walmart is a popular stop for truck drivers because many stores allow overnight parking for free. Policies are set by individual store locations — and some local laws may come in to play — so be aware that not all Walmarts allow truck parking. Many Walmart stores are open 24/7, which means 24-hour access to bathrooms, shopping, and other services. Some Walmart locations even have on-site restaurants, gas stations, and automotive centers.

One resource for finding a Walmart near you that allows truck parking is Trucker Path. The app creators claim they have contacted every Walmart in the country to confirm whether or not it allows truck parking. Walmart Locator, an unofficial website for finding Walmart stores, has also developed a state-by-state list of Walmarts that allow RV and truck parking. For specifics, contact your nearest Walmart.

In Summary

If you’re looking for a place to park your semitruck or commercial truck, there are mobile apps that can help you find parking. In addition to truck stops and rest areas, parking is often available at hotels, restaurants, casinos, big-box stores like Walmart, and other establishments.
