Camp Wal-mart

Hi folks: Is it true that Wal-mart allows rv and camper overnite parking in their lots? Heard this and was just wondering. Thanks

Most do. The customer service desk knows, ask them if it si OK and where to park. As far as I can tell the only ones don't are were local ordinances forbid it.


Good spring and fall, mid summer when it is hot and light late kinda sucks.

There is a couple on You Tube that did a video on this, Their Channel is called the Long Long Honeymoon if you want to check them out.

They prefer you check with them first, but if you arrive in the middle of the night at a store that isn't 24 hours, they usually don't have a problem as long as you don't hinder customer traffic. Just a heads up; in some areas the police may knock on your door to do a safety check. You can read whatever you want into that, but I usually take their intentions as honorable.

Have not experienced the police knocking, but I've only done it a couple dozen times. I have to say that would surprise me with someone knocking!

As far as advice too since I'm posting again on this the larger wal-marts are better since you can find an out of the way corner. The small older ones can be hard to get away from the entrance. There can be problems with big trucks idling or running loud generators overnight.

I have seen Wal-marts where people are obviously camping in the lot, but I've just used it as a place to stop for a night while on the way.

Cracker Barrel resteants also allow overnight stays. They even have a brochure listing all Cracker Barrels that allow overnight stays.

I like to use the above posted link, then find a Wally that does allow parking. After that I google map it and use the satellite view to scope out where folks have their RVs parked. If there's overnight parking you can usually see RVs and trucks on the map.
