Cabela's

I had double the pleasure recently at a Cabela's store. The first pleasure was that it was my first time shopping at a Cabela's store and the second pleasure was we enjoyed free overnight camping in their parking lot. They also have a dump station and potable water!

I noticed on their website that if you check the store's location, it provides more information about if overnight camping is allowed (I believe it is allowed at all locations, but check the website to confirm) and if the location has a dump station.

Check out the map below and you will see that there are stores located all around the country for your free camping pleasure. The are also building the first store in Canada in Montreal!

check locations first

That map looks slightly erroneous to me. I say that because the Pennsylvania store is actually located way north of where it appears on the map. I showed restraint and refrained from purchasing the
powered riding beer cooler and auxilary beer cooler trailer.

I spend enough money at Cabelas to receive a hardcover catalog twice a year. They are a great company, and their customer service is second to none. Great news about the boondocking, makes a great deal that much better! Thanks.

Thumbs up

I love Cabela's they are one of the few stores that actually stock things that fit me without having to special order. I frequent the one in Owatonna, MN I have relatives in NE Iowa so we fly into MSP and ALWAYS stop at the Cabela's on the way down. The stores themselves are a sight to see.

I double checked the PA store and it is located north of the location on the first map (see the PA map detail below). IMHO -- I would treat the US map as a guideline of general locations (definitely not to scale) and then use the website to find the city/address before embarking on a road trip!

Don't feel bad...I had to travel outside of my home state of Massachusetts to find a Cabela's.

The Cabelas in Michigan has a tractor beam that seems to get us a few times a year too.

A new Cabelas just opened in Gonzales Louisiana. I went to check it out and walked out with a new credit card, hat, $25.00 in Cabelas bucks and a used Mini 14 which is sweet.

I drive by the Cabelas in Dundee MI. twice a day, they have a free dump station as well as free RV parking in the back. I do not get the hard cover catalog, but a friend of mine gets the leather bound gold leaf covered catalog every year.

I played tourist

I played tourist too...I wasn't the only one brandishing a camera inside the store, so I don't feel so bad...

In the middle of the store, there was a mountain complete with deer (not alive) and enough brush and shrubs to make it very realistic.

Aquarium

The store also featured a large aquarium. Here's a photo of the underside of a turtle that happened to be swimming by.

The one in Owatonna has just about every form of wildlife in North America on it's big display mountain. They also offer Buffalo Burgers and Elk Steaks in the on site restaurant

We have a Cabels's here in the Phoenix area (Glendale). When it opened last year you could not get near the place. It is big and has a lot of great stuff, have you tried the fudge?

We just got a Bass Pro Shop in Tempe. It is even bigger and has more nice stuff!
