On our way to Florida earlier this month we lot docked at Cracker Barrel for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised.
Since we moved into our camper in August 2020 we’ve been plugged in at campgrounds except for when moving to another campground. Due to the length of the drive to Florida from Middle Tennessee we knew we would have to overnight or lot dock at either Cracker Barrel, Walmart, or a rest area. We decided to try Cracker Barrel mostly because we could get our coffee in the morning. Funny, but true!
We spent our first night lot docking at the Cracker Barrel in Dalton, Georgia. Before we chose that location, I looked at the satellite view of the parking lot on Google maps. We easily found the RV parking spots behind the store. The manager seemed genuinely glad we chose to stop there. We ate supper there, then breakfast again the next morning.
The next night we stopped at the Cracker Barrel in Tifton, Georgia. Again, we were enthusiastically welcomed.
We kept our small slide in. Thankfully we can access everything in our camper with our slide in. We turned on our lights only to use the bathroom. We used our battery operated fans rather than the fan in the RV. We honestly aren’t quite sure how long our batter will last since we’ve never dry camped before. It’s the battery the dealer installed-lead acid and only 75 amp hours.
We have learned that we love lot docking at Cracker Barrel. So far we’ve felt safe and welcome. We plan to stop at Cracker Barrel on our next multi-day trip.
Where’s your favorite place to lot dock?
