Walmart and Cracker Barrel docking

Cracker Barrel at I-10 exit 199 in Tallahassee is not suitable for overnight, or even stopping to eat. It is on a hillside with no RV spaces. In fact, anything bigger than my 37' TW may not be able to get out after getting in the lot.

To make matters even worse for someone looking for an overnight location, the WalMart at the same exit has a sign clearly stating NO Overnight RV Parking.

Quite likely that there is a NOP ordinance covering that whole area

Most of the Wal-Marts that do not allow overnight parking are either:
1) Tennants on the property and the owner does not allow parking. Most likely D/T insurance issues.

2) The municipality does not allow overnight parking.

I have stayed at several Wal-Marts and generally these have been the issues.

Most Cracker Barrels lots do seem small, especially for big rigs. Gander Mountains and Cabelas often allow parking as well and generally have bigger lots.

Florida has hills (maybe that should not be plural) IN NW Florida, North of Crestview and just South of Florala, AL is Britton Hill in Florida, it is 345 feet high and is the highest hill in Florida. It does not go un-noticed.

we enjoy stopping at Cracker Barrel while traveling (really like their breakfast) but have become frustrated trying to find a place in their parking lot that will accommodate our rig .... consequently, if one is located in or next to a shopping center with a large parking lot, we will stop .... if not, we drive on by
