No Walmart camping here......

The following link is a list of Walmart stores that prohibit RV camping..., might save that 2am knock on the door

Your're 2AM comment reminds me of a story....

I was doing a cross country in my truck (no trailer) on one trip and had pulled into a ARKANSAS rest area. Was down for the sleep count big time and I woke up for some reason...

There was RED/BLUE lights all around me - cops standing all around me with guns drawn - and here I am just waking up....

I said to myself this isn't going to be good.... One officer was standing on my passenger side so I rolled down that window and he says are you going to need to back out?.... Of course there was no way I could take with four of five trooper cars there.

Apparently they had the guy in the car next too me spread eagle on the ground and was going through all his stuff inside the car... Scared the crap out of me for sure.....

I told the officer "only if I am in any danger"... He said "you will be just fine - just stay put"...

So I watched them finally haul this guy off in the police car and in just a little bit a wrecker shows up and drags off the car he was in...

After things all got quiet again I eased out on the road again and did another couple hundred miles hehe... Was very much wide awake...

It appears that the states that are in the business of mining seem to have the longest list of NO OVERNIGHT stays. By mining I am referring to mining pocket books and wallets of seasonal visitors. Local campgrounds don't like any freebies. Thanks for the information.

Awesome link! Thank you. I have bookmarked it as well for future reference. I'll take my business on down the road in exchange for a place to rest, or just in support of another camper needing a place to rest.

I guess that list iss of Wal-marts I will not shop at. Our local store is not on the list and you use to see at least 2-4 campers per night there. I haven't seen any there in a long time. Maybe I'll go there Friday night just for giggles and see what happens since I am still hooked to the truck..:hihi:

My shop is only a block from our Walmart here in Gilmer and I walked over there the other day and there is now a sign "No overnight Rv or truck parking".there were 2 RV's that had overnighted next to the sign.

Not that I am a big Walmart fan, but my guess in many cases the no overnight rules are based on local ordinances so I would not fault the store entirely.

That is the case where I live.., and was on the books long before Walmart built in our area.

WalMart has a company policy that leaves the decision whether to allow or not allow RV'ers overnight parking to the local managers based on availability of parking, access and local laws. WalMart also allows managers who have had problems with RV'ers to close their lots as well.
