My parents are coming down from Michigan for a couple days next month, and they'd like me to find a place for them to have access to electricity and perhaps water for up to 5 days. Free is best, but anything less than $20 per night would work too.

They're in a 34ft motor home, and are towing an SUV behind them.

I'm located in N. Raleigh, and would like to find something within 5 miles of Millbrook/Glenwood.

Thanks!

-Adam

The only places I know are the Fairgrounds, Falls Lake, and Bill Plemmons on New Bern.

I'd park at the Fairgrounds or Falls Lake.

Keep in mind they close the gates early (8pm spring and 9pm summer) at Falls Lake. That could be an issue if you are planning an evening out.

Walmarts allow RVs to stay for free in their parking lots. My parents have done that a few times. Mostly they use one of the two Falls Lake camgrounds though (Holly Point off New Light Rd. in Wake Forest, or Rolling View off Baptist Rd. in Durham). Neither are 5 miles from where you're looking, but no longer than 20 minutes.

Not all Walmarts allow overnight parking. There are some Walmarts I wouldn't want my parents to stay at overnight, too.
