Semitruck Parking Nearby? Commercial Truck Parking Nearby? Listed

Finding a place to park, especially overnight, can be a challenge for truck drivers. Even at places that offer truck parking, availability can be limited and fees can add up. Below, we have the list of mobile apps that can help you find truck parking, as well as the list of places where you’ll likely be able to park — from truck stops to restaurants to retail stores.

Ways to Find Parking

There are plenty of parking options for semitrucks if you know where to look. 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. Additionally, some will 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. If you plan to park overnight, be sure to check the rest stop’s policies to make sure this is allowed. A popular app for finding rest stops is USA Rest Stops, available for both iOS and Google Play.

From trucks stops and rest stops to businesses and restaurants, you can find a place to park using one of the following apps. Some of the best mobile apps to find truck parking include:

Businesses With Truck Parking

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

Hotels and Motels

Parking availability for trucks at hotels and motels will vary depending on the location’s parking facilities and policies. The following national hotel chains commonly offer free overnight parking for semitrucks, as confirmed by customer service representatives. We’ve linked to each hotel’s locator tool to help you find a location.

Restaurants

Some restaurants near the interstate have parking lots that can accommodate trucks. However, it’s unlikely that you’ll be allowed to park overnight. In most cases, parking is only available during business hours, which can be as late as after midnight and as early as 5 a.m. at some locations. 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, as confirmed by customer service representatives. As above, we’ve linked to the restaurant locators.

Casinos

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 at all hours. Some casinos will put a cap on the length of your stay, but you can typically stay one to three nights.

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. For specific store policies, you can contact your intended Walmart location.
