Does Bass Pro Shop allow overnights.

Does Bass Pro allow you to park your RV overnight?

Hmm, good question. I go there often and don't remember seeing any motorhomes but never thought about it. It would be a good place with a movie theaatre, Target and tons of shops at the outdoor mall. There's also some new roads to the east where future stores will be, maybe some additional parking. I believe you may be able to go unnoticed for one night. The parking lot between Bass Pro and the mall is the most crowded so you might want to find another.
Some people say to ask permission but I have better luck asking for forgiveness.
Good luck and have fun.

I have seen RV's parked on numerous occasions at a Cabella's but never at a Bass Pro Shop. It seems the parking lots at Bass are much smaller than Cabella's. I'm sure if you called the local Bass shop they could tell you their store policy.

I like htat "100-150 dollars per stay" Yup, sounds about right to me too.

Cheaper to use a campground than a Flying-J as well.

Oh, the reason I hit reply:

The campground (yes, Licensed RV park) where I'm at today (leave tomorrow per sked) also has horse corralls And stables, and a Cowboy Church, and a petting zoo and and and. well you get the idea.

Google: Cat head creek RV Townsend GA
For more information.
Home is where I park it!

Stopped in Charlotte at Bass Pro after a long run headed home. Asked the customer desk, she was not sure so she called Security.

NOPE, mall policy not BP.

Suggested that I go to WM which was across the street about 1/2 mile. Welcome arms at WM . There were six coaches when I arrived, and it was the start of race week. FYI... these area are about 3 miles from Charlotte motor Speedway.

I live a few towns away from the Bass Pro Shop in Foxboro, MA which is located in the Patriots Place Mall/Stadium complex. They do not allow overnight stays and the same goes for the Walmart and Cracker Barrels in the most of the state of Ma due to local laws. So call ahead and ask because it may differ region to region. I did contact Bass Pro Shops and asked if they were planning on adding a RV supply department. They are looking into the profitability of such a venture. The Carbellas in West Hartford and Saco/Scarboro, Me have RV parking but not sure if it allows overnight stays.

Cabelas Sleepover

Cabelas E.Hartford, Ct. does not allow overnight parking. A local ordinance apparently. They do have a great setup for dumping and cleaning out tanks with a lot of water pressure. I usually make that my last stop coming home to Eastern Ct. from Florida.

But there is a nice rest area about 15 minutes away on I-91 n/b and s/b between Hartford and New Haven. Has an office and restrooms open all night.

Again, it seems to be local laws that apply rather then the store itself, just as with most Wal*Marts.

The Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, MO allowed an overnight for us a couple of years ago. They asked us to park on the side of the outlet store, nice and quiet and dark. Nice. But is was more like $300/night if I remember correctlly. Good luck!

After reading this thread last night I decided to e-mail Bass Pro corporate to ask about their policy on overnight RV parking. Below is their response, I was surprised at the quickness.


Thank you for contacting Bass Pro. We appreciate your business. The RV policy varies from store to store. I suggest contacting the store you will be visiting directly and speaking with the manager. They will be able to let you know if you can park your RV overnight and if not, then they may be able to recommend a place nearby that you can park at. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact us again if you require further assistance.

Best regards,
