This is a small rest area but the area outside and area below the rest area could be used for overnighting if desperate. I would not take a big rig into the actual rest area if another vehicle is already there as you may have trouble with turning around. Would imagine there would be noise from both the rail line and the highway.
This rest area is small & its difficult to find a flat space to park. It is fairly close to the highway nestled behind some trees & shrubbery. We found it to be quiet overnight. There are picnic tables & flushing toilets along with a sheltered gazebo with information regarding Burning Mountain. It is fine for an overnight stop.
The surprise here was the walk to Burning Mountain. The walk is 4.6km return & is a fairly steep well defined track. You will be amazed by the wildlife views & the burning coal seam. Take time to do this walk it is definitely worthwhile. We would stay here again.
