Do they allow rvs to park overnight? Charge? Anyone done it? Was it noisey? Any experience with the Flying J's in Pecos or Lubbock,TX?

Cheers, John

Yes, they allow RV's to overnight.

No, they don't charge.

Some have areas in the main parking lot for RV's, others you just park with the Big trucks.

Generally, they are all very noisy no matter where you are parked. Personally the noise doesn't bother me because it's not unlike a lot of campgrounds that have a railroad track running past.

Never been Pecos or Lubbock but did try to stay in Amarillo once. It was a very small Flying J compared to most and not much room for Trucks let alone RV's. I went down the street a ways a stayed at WalMart. WalMarts are much quieter.

I've not spent the night at the Flying J in Pecos TX but have gassed up there. It's an older station that's been well loved. It's not too big. Great location though for a stopover heading towards the Big Bend area. It's on the north side of the interstate.

....another option MIGHT be a Casino.

They seem to be popping up almost everywhere nowadays. Most offer free (dry) camping, and the use of electricity at a fairly good rate. This option offers (most times) a quieter sleep not having to park next to an idling rig or a cycling refer. Most casinos are open long hours (many 24/7) and the washrooms are always neat n clean (truck stops....??). They are only amiss a good shower facility but do, for the most part, have a super array of food in their dining rooms.
