How do Cracker Barrels feel about RV overnighters? Are they generally as welcoming as WalMart?

CB's are limited on space. I just wouldn't feel right about hogging one of only 6 or 7 rv spaces for overnighting. JMHO

You can't have Sadie. Sadie is my only true friend. She shows it every time she wants a "treat".

CB managers have always welcomes RVer's to overnight in their parking lots. Of course as with Walmart's we always ask but have never been refused.
Actually, I prefer CB's because breakfast is just a few steps away.
If you stop too early you may find the RV parking area filled with four-wheelers. After dinner though there is usually plenty of room.

That works as long as you are out "early" the following morning. Also, remember that CB offers "minimum security". LEO's only.

I'll stick with WM.

To each his own. A person can use what works for him. I'm not aware that Walmarts use any more security that the local LEO's either and I certainly don't depend on depend on them to provide 'security'. I thought they were mostly for takin' care of the bodies and writing reports.

This is kinda 'off-topic' and that's frowned upon here so this is the last I'll say about this subject on this thread.

Just so that members don't get the wrong idea about the difference in WM and CB security,

Cracker Barrell offers no security except sheriffs/police patrols. No lights, etc.

Many WalMart's have 24/7 security in security patrol cars that constantly cruise the grounds(yellow flashing lights on the security cars) along with plenty of lights and cameras 24/7 for lot security. Customer traffic/truck traffic in and out 24/7.

We unhooked. Wanted to drive around town and do some light sightseeing so parked the rig and unhooked the car. Nothing more complicated than that.

No pic here because I doubt it will ever happen. Not that we're anti-Walmart, we just stay at Pilot/FJ while traveling. Fuel, food, dump, propane, convienence and security. A no-brainer for us.

That is a very popular WM for RV'ers wishing for a place to stay the night, but it sounds like you were just there to shop? No overnight? That store is right between two casinos that are also popular for RV'ers spending the night. We usually stay at the Quil Ceda Creek casino, the smaller of the two.

Yes Madrona we just stopped to shop.
The American Wal Marts have some groceries in bulk that our Canadian ones don't have. At least not at our local one.
