I used RVparky on my last trip. It shows WM and cracker Barrel locations, this app has user reviews of the locations so you can stay up to the minute on any changes.

It's a free app.

Another option to consider.. What about changing up your driving schedule? Drive at night, sleep during the day? Then they can't get you for the "overnight parking" law... Of course, I typically work nights, so my body clock is all screwed up anyhow.

capnj: I think that you have not read many of the more recent amendments to ordinances. I have found like many on this site that not all communities welcome RVs and in many of those communities there exists a Walmart. It is just the way it is...facts be facts. I too boondock at Walmarts when I am able. Love the place...but when I go to Florida...no boondocking in and around the Orlando area in Walmart's ..unless you area in the stealth mode and are not told to move. I have pulled in late in the evening and slept for 4-5 hours then scooted...but usually if I time myself properly...I go right to my campground.

One option is to find an RV dealership in the area. Pull in after they close up.. no one will notice one extra RV sitting there. Pull in/sleep/leave early.

We've overnited at WM all across the U.S.A.
Never asked if we could, never been asked to leave.
ALWAYS go in and ask at the service desk as they often have areas in the parking lot where they prefer you to stay. Just good manners.

I'm not sure of your direction north of Dallas, but 90 miles north on Highway 75 in Durant, OK is a very nice RV park with a shuttle to the Casino/Restaurants.


Choctaw Casino Resort | Durant, OK


There are many other RV park options in Dallas area, and I have stayed overnight at the Wal Mart in Plano right off the Tollway.

I agree with the need for having good manners.
But really, I can't remember ever pulling in to a WM and not seeing another RV or semi-truck already parked for some shut eye.

just made contact with sandy lake rv park. water is gone and they are now in process of cleanup and checking all sites and utilities. they hope to be open by 19 june . regardless, A BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO RESPONED, lots of options just in case.

Howdy!

We've used the "Cabela's" just outside of Ft Worth a couple of times. It even has a RV dump station.

"Happy Trails"

Overnight RV Parking My favorite website.

We have certainly run into townships and such that just have an ordinance against overnight sleeping. We have also still slept in walmart parking lots, right next to the no overnight parking sign, and been just fine. That may not work in all area's though, and we were discreetly off to the side. But have done it
