Oregon to Utah suggestions

Hi, I'm traveling Portland to southern Utah, want to make 300-400 miles/day. I wondered if you have suggestions of no cost overnight stops along the way. Thanks!

There are any number of WalMarts along those routes that allow overnighting. That's about as free as you can get.

Try here for a listing: walmartrving@yahoogroups.com

Since your first day will probably get you out of Oregon, I'm no help....never been that far East!
But:
It sounds like you're in a hurry to cover ground, so my advice would be Interstate Rest areas.

Interstate highway rest areas, except in Idaho.

Eric when I did it I went from Bend then via the 20 through Oregon into Montana onto the I84. Should warn you there where not many options for camping pay or otherwise on the I84 between Boise and Potcatello that I saw - main reason I ended up putting in a longer day than I would have liked going through that section of Montana. Only recall seeing a couple of large commercial campgrounds in the Twin Falls area close to the highway. Would think there would be a Walmart in Twin Falls or Pocatello though. What I do recall of that section of the I84 was that rest stops were actually few and far between (actually seem to recall that a number of them where closed when I went through the summer before last). So hopefully someone can give you some better ideas of areas to stop along that section. Wish I had thought to asked before heading out there :-) Return trip I went back via the Tetons and then on the 15 to the 90 through Couer d'Alene.

I would check and see if there are any truck stops like Pilot or Love's along your route. I pull into one and park under a light, but out of the way of customers. Most truck stops have showers for about $7.

utah encourages drowsy drivers to take a break. Rest areas are provided to the traveling public for this purpose. All rest areas are posted for no overnight camping. However, extended stays are permitted and are monitored by the on-site staff and the highway patrol. There are no rv hookups or dumps or camping facilities at any site. A list of rv dump sites in utah can be found using the links below. Udot, however, does not guarante the accuracy of the information contained therein.
