Located along the I-5, just north of Weed, CA, next to Weed Airport, is Weed Rest Area.
This is probably one of the more popular rest areas along the I-5 because of its remote location. The southbound side of the rest area includes a dirt lot that many trucks use to park. If you plan to overnight here, try to get here before 7:00pm because it will fill up by then.
California limits travelers to just 8 hours of stay in its rest areas, but we managed to stay here for 14 hours without being bothered. There are lots of trucks here pulling in and out all night long, but if you’re used to overnighting in rest areas you get accustomed to it.
Amenities include restrooms, picnic tables, and garbage cans.
Verizon 4G comes in excellent here (5/5 bars).
