2 rest stops, one northbound, one southbound. They are about 1/2 mile apart. Coming southbound down from Harrisburg, PA, you pass Carlisle exits, the Plainfield exit, then the rest stop is about 41-40 mile marker. The slanted parking spaces easily park 75' tractor trailers, so all RVs would fit. Lots of trees, shade and picnic tables too. Good spot to sleep if you're tired. The northbound rest stop is just past exit 38 (Newville exit). Again, slanted parking spaces, very large and lots of trees.

2 hour parking limit @ all PA rest stops.

All of the above might be important, if Overnight Parking were legal in Pennsylvania rest areas. It's illegal.

Have or did you notice a RV dump site at this rest stop?

I have noticed that these rest stops are filling up pretty early, but there seem to be rigs coming and going all night so you probably can find a space to park your RV almost any hour. If you're tired and see a space, it might be best to snag it because I've noticed all the free parking areas in this area do fill up much faster since fuel prices have gone way up.
