The Wal-Mart at Hilton Head Island doesn't allow overnighting - big surprise. That aside, we prefer Cracker Barrel for overnights. The food is better, parking often quieter than Wal-Mart.

Our local WM posted signs inn Dec. No overnite truck parking or rvs. Befor I did not see many rvs., maybe 1 or so a month but many big trucks and they were always well away from store and grouped together, not taking up needed spaces I don't no if village said no more or if got dif. mgr. plus local pd never hassled them.

Just say'n... The WalMart in Deming, NM encourages RV overnighters. We stayed there last month and arrived around 6pm, there were 4 Prevosts and several other class A's. By the time we hit the rack, there were no less than 15 rigs in the parking lot. Security vehicles patrolled all night. No noise. Real cheap. I'll do it again.

I stayed at Walmart going from Florida all the way to Seattle last year,
I think that the Walmart's would like you to park there, it is good for their business,
not only did we stay at them, but they had camera security on us and then we always shopped there for all of our supplies, win/win for both of us.

Hey Jim!

FYI: Bud Strauss and I will be at Quartzfest next week. Planning on posting the "Wally Byam RV Service Club" Banner on the awning all week.

Are you planning on heading down that way from Baton Rouge? Just ask'n...

Stay safe,

The security cameras are there to watch the campers, not the customers. Just my opinion.

I drove for Wal-Mart / Sam's Club dedicated; while there are exceptions to any rule, here are some basics. If in doubt ask, the service desk will be happy to help. In general if there are trucks and TT's on the lot, it's OK to overnight. Be courteous; park as far away from the front door and out of traffic lanes as possible. Some towns have noise ordinances ( no generators ) ; those will be posted otherwise it's OK. Try and be gone no later than 9 am. Leave the place better than you found it. Spend 10 or 15 minutes picking up trash before you leave. Same rules apply to Costco.

I know this is an old thread, but there is a APP for that. It's called "ONP Walmart" It lists both places where overnight Parking is banned, and where it's permitted. It's on my iPhone. Don't know if it's available for Android or Windows.

What others have said about asking the manager applies, though. nothing like a little courtesy to smooth the way.

Walmarts are everywhere and have lots of parking space for trailers. Everyone I have stopped at welcomed us. I have the Walmart US map which has the phone number of all of their stores. If we know what town we are staying at we call several days before and ask if trailer parking is OK.
If we do not know where our evening destination will be I know there are Walmarts at most large town exits off major highways. I look in the lot and if I see a trailer I stop and stay there. Have never been denied.
I like Walmart overnighting. Only issue is in the summer where it gets hot. You need a gen set.

Just stayed at a Parry Sound Walmart. We drove through Toronto in the middle of the night and arrive in Parry Sound at 4:30am . 7 or 8 other RVs in lot. If you know Toronto highway traffic you understand why we drove so early in the morning. Pulling a 30' AS through rush our would be beyond my anxiety threshold. Off to California.

Oh well, no hassles and no charge.
We stayed in a walmart lot on the way back. In western KS. No probs there either.
Had a great week on Turquoise Lake CG near Leadville Colo.
Reading through the WM posts today. This one by 'Gettinaway' is a Classic !
LOL 'For Sale' signs, Maybe the tow vehicles were still attached, & included ? it was late who would have noticed? LOL

Have a good one!

If I remember right two were motor homes. But to be honest, I was more focused on the two police cars. If they were ok with our parking there, I was ok.. They were still there when I turned out the lights. I slept very well that night! Ha

Also consider Cabela's stores. http://www.cabelas.com/stores/stores_home.jsp They allow RVs to dump their black and grey water tanks and to get fresh water. This is a very nice self-service for $5 alongside the store near where I live. I just used the dumping service yesterday.
