Plenty of room for cars, rvs, vans, trucks. Lots of trees and shade. Verizon varies between two and four bars. By Oregon law you can stay 12 hours in 24 hour period.

“Great FREE overnight parking. Huge overflow parking areas nicer than some campgrounds!”

Great FREE overnight parking. We’ve stayed in both the North and Southbound sides of the French Prairie rest stop near Aurora, OR. Signs indicate a 12 hour maximum stay. These are HUGE rest stops that have additional parking areas in the rear that are perfect for an overnight. While there is always the chance of a semi idling nearby, the “additional parking” areas are far enough away from the interstate that road noise is barely noticeable. There are areas with large trees and an open field to run the doggies. There are multiple bathroom stations and picnic areas. The Northbound side is a adjacent to a very large solar collection facility with interesting interpretive signs. We’ve honestly stayed in campgrounds that were far less attractive with more road noise and you can’t beat the price!
