Oklahoma City Walmarts

We will be passing through Oklahoma City and stoping for the night. I was looking for any insight. I see several Walmart's to choose from. Are there any that are less safe than others?

Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who YOU are.

Avoid the Walmart on I-240, just off I-35. There's been some gang activity in the parking lot. If you have a specific Walmart in mind, I may be able to give you some neighborhood insights that may help. PM for specifics.

I would also stay away from the one at 40 and MacArthur. Not sure if one in Yukon let you stay overnight or not. For $15 you can have hook ups in El Reno at the lake just west of okc. There is also a walmart there. The one in Moore is being protective of parking as well since the tornado from what I hear.

The idea of sleeping in a parking lot where anybody can walk up to, or drive up to, your rig just to hassle you gives me the creeps. Not to mention parking lot lighting, road noise, and trucks in an urban environment. If your alarm system is a dog, it will be going off all night. How could you possibly get any sleep? Why not just find a nearby campground that you can plan to stop at?

I have spent the night at Flying J Truck Plaza on I 40 just west of OKC more than once No problems I buy fuel and a few snacks before I pull out. I have also stayed at Flying J in Albuquerque NM and Abilene TX
