|Wal-Mart stores that do not allow overnight RV parking
Most Wal-Mart stores perhaps nine out of ten graciously allow RVers to stay the night in their parking lots.
But, increasingly, many do not. In fact, hundreds of stores throughout the United States do not allow RVers to stay overnight in their parking lots, and the list of locations is growing every week. In some cases, it's because of a local ordinance, other times because of objections of nearby businesses or residents, or, sad to say, because of abusive behavior by some RVers who have left no choice for store managers but the ban stays.
Currently, Wal-Mart operates 1,494 discount stores, 1,386 Supercenters and 532 Sam's Clubs.
Most Wal-Marts that prohibit overnight stays post signs that say so. But not all. RVers who try to stay the night at a store where it's not permitted may be asked politely to leave, or as often happens, be ordered to leave long after they have gone to sleep. In some cases, where a local law prohibits overnight stays, local police may knock on a door late at night with an eviction notice, or even issue a citation.
Our directory, updated in March, 2006, lists more than 350 U.S. stores that do not permit overnight stays in an RV.
This directory is best used in combination with the Wal-Mart Locator, which lists every store and driving directions to each. Some RVers carry the directory with them and use it to plot overnight stops between campgrounds. Using this list in combination with the directory will prevent the frustration of planning to stay at an off-limits store and then finding "No overnight parking" signs upon arrival.
You can order your list of "No Stay" Wal-Marts right now.
Along with the directory, you will receive our Common sense rules about staying the night at Walmart, which will help you understand the rules official and unofficial about staying the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
