We'll be traveling from Montana to Portland, OR and I hope to make the trip in 2 days. We plan on making it to the Spokane area for the first night. I'll be driving a truck towing a 28' TT. I'm looking for any advice for a pull off for a night's rest. No hookups or power necessary, ideally parking in the evening and getting back on the road the following morning. A Walmart parking lot is an option, but ideally we would prefer something more out of town. Really I'm not picky though, I just want to have a goal in mind for the first day. It will be me, my wife, and 2 young children (3 yrs old).

Thanks.

X2 for a good truck stop because they'll be right off the Interstate.

If you are traveling I-90 there is a great rest area just inside the Idaho border. East bound I believe it even contains a campground. You can practically see Spokane from there so it isn't far. When going east it is a mandatory dog walk after we clear Spokane traffic. Going west we sit there if we miss timed rush hours.

We have used the Fish Trap BLM area, just a few miles SW of Spokane. Quite, free, wildlife, some nice hiking trails, and an old homestead to explore.
Safe travels,
Steve

That sounds like our style! How far and on what road to this location? I'll google it myself as well. Thanks!

Is this it? Fishtrap Lake Resort

The resort is about one mile further down the road. This is just a BLM parking area a short distance north on Jack Brown Road. Use Google terrain and search north of the Resort up Jack Brown Road. Near the barn you will see a parking area. That's it. (47.367648,-117.830021) While it seems like a long way, it is less than 10 minutes from the freeway exit. It is managed by the BLM so you can always call them for details. I found it last year, with the help of Ultimate Campgrounds which may also help you find other possible locations.
