For various reasons we errored on not booking our usual pull through KOA over-nighter.

Obviously now we are experiencing limitations. Looking for a July 2nd one night in transit site in the 68/70 MD area. We are flexible, and options can be west or south of this junction.

DW and 8 yr old daughter not as fond of the Walmart option as I am.

Thoughts ?

Thank you.

I "think" the RV dealer on 81 at the Pa line might let you park.

Falling Waters Camp Sites just south of the Potomac in WV might be your best option.
Harper's Ferry is pretty far off I81 for an overnighter and Keystone RV no longer rents spaces. Yogi would be good and Candy Land in Winchester 50 miles farther south is nice. The Walmart at I81 and US40 is very popular with snowbirds and I've not heard of any problems. A new Walmart and adjacent Cracker Barrel is just east of I81 at I70 and MD65. Nothing else close comes to mind. Must admit I'm not a fan of WM or CB. Hope you enjoy your trip.

Many years ago, the RV dealer on I-81 had a small campground behind the dealership. Can't think of the same of dealer. We stopped there for the night. Worked out fine for us. Maybe Keystone RV C/G in Greencastle, PA. Right near Hagerstown.

I stayed at the Candy Land in Winchester last year. Right on I-81 and was pretty nice I thought.

If you are going to the KOA just south of Hagerstown, there used to be a warning in their ad to NOT follow the GPS directions. don't know if that has been corrected however.

The warning is still on their reservations and the GPSs have not been corrected. The one-lane bridge (and the turn at the end of it) and the 1-1/2 lane roads leading to it are not negotiable by larger RVs. (Was there two weeks ago.) This is also not a KOA we will visit again.

Perhaps try one of the MD state parks a few miles to the south of 68 or there are some PA parks within 30-45 minutes of 68 to the north. Laurel Hill near Somerset up 219, Shawnee near Bedford up 99, and a couple of others to the East. Any FHU and electric only sites would probably be long gone for that weekend, there should be primitive sites available. Its going to be tough on a Holiday weekend finding a site for one night. Even if you find one they probably have a 2 or 3 night minimum for July 4th weekend.
