Why not look up what Walmarts are in the areas you mentioned and call? It doesn't matter if someone on here says you can and then you get there and management says you can't, right? Someone on here could tell you if they have recently been allowed but I'd call. And I'd ask for the management employee's name who said it was ok, if in fact they say it's ok...

The Allstays app shows WM’s and indicates which allow overnighting.

This group keeps a database of Wal-Mart's and Flying J truckstops that do and don't allow overnight parking. They seem to be a pretty active group so it's probably fairly accurate.

We decide to just find a Good Sam Camp ground to stay for one day, since it will be hot there we will need to hook up power for AC.

We are retired and when we pull out on a trip, that is when it starts. If we can't get there in 5 hours of driving, we have a overnight at a small inexpensive place where we can relax and sleep.
I can't do that in a parking lot or rest area and believe me I have tried when it was not a choice.

I know those that have a 1 or 2 week vacation may not have that luxury but that's how we roll.

When ever we spend a couple days on the road, we always call the Wal-Mart we plan on staying at and talk with the manager.

I’ve only stayed at a Walmart one time and that was out of necessity. I had scheduled an InvisiBrake installation at the nearest Camping World. It was about 180 miles from home and I needed to have the Precept and towed there first thing in the morning so my plan was to drive to the local area the evening prior. I talked to someone (on the phone) at Camping World and asked if I could spend that prior night in their parking lot and was told that I could. So, I didn’t make any campground reservations. When I got to Camping World in the evening I was told that whoever said that I could stay there was mistaken. I then had a choice of traveling about 35 miles (both that evening and the next morning back to Camping World) or doing my first Walmart stay. I did call the Walmart (5 miles from the CW) and got permission. The parking lot was pretty empty and I did park as far away as I could from the store. This was in West Texas in summer so I did run the generator all night to have a/c.

there is a disclaimer that you should not assume it is so. These are user fed info and often rules change. Some info is out of date.

Always ask

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Have overnighted in dozens of WM's, and have never had a problem with any of them. I have only talked to management at maybe 3 or 4 of the locations. At one where it was clearly posted "No overnite parking", the night manager walked with me to the front door and directed me to the best place to park.


I avoid locations near tourist attractions as they don't want to become impromto camp grounds. It is also wise to research a community that you are not familiar with to avoid "bad" areas of town. Friday and Saturday nites may tend to be hangouts for kids and their cars. Most retailers have clampted down on cruising.


Call me cheap but its more about convience. We use the stop to stock up on needed supplies and often grab one of their roto cooked chickens for dinner and donuts for breakfast.
