Please shoot me if I ever refer to staying in my MH with A/C, furnace, refrigerator, W/D, tv, and stereo as camping.

I agree but most everyone does call them "campgrounds."

I lived in a tent in Kuwait for 6 months. It took 4+ years to take the kids tent camping after I got back. I dont do tents......

Exactly!! Campgrounds are just little parking lots.

Since I dont like neighbors, and I have no desire to befriend people in any parking lot, camping or otherwise, the Walmart has the advantage in this area. Or me, I will take a night in Walmart over a campground every time!
This is my current piece of parking lot.
Your accomodations may vary.
I'll take this over any piece of asphalt any time.

I would say parking lots are for parking and campgrounds are a good place to use your awning, leveling jacks, slides, camp fire and lawn chairs.

I always believed Wal Mart staying was basically just for overnight accommodations. I guess I am wrong. I have never done it because I prefer having the place to hook up.

The RV places (Resorts etc) we stay have streams close by, or nice views of mountains or nice grassy areas right out side, flowers, shade trees, excellent dog walking areas so I'm not sure they qualify as parking lots. They were not difficult to find. But then I am not compulsively thrifty either and pay for what I want and enjoy what I get.

Some, of course, the ones I use for overnight are a bit stark, but considerably less so than a Wal Mart. As far as I know, no drug trades or truck theft has occurred in any of the RV parks while I was staying long term or over night. I could be wrong. That cannot be said of the Wal Mart parking lots I am aware of at any rate.

However I will not condemn your choice or your thinking. If Wal Mart is a good experience for you then enjoy yourself.

I'm relatively new to traveling around the country. I'm just finishing up a 8 month trip. We stay in CG every night unless we are on a long drive between places we spend a night in a truck stop.
What I don't understand about WM parking lots is that you have to move your MH everyday. What do you do if you want to spend a week somewhere? Do you just find another WM? I'm trying to understand the motivation of staying in WM and how you sight see

But that is a quote from the "Learner's Dictionary!" I have graduated to a self contained unit that has a cooking surface (grill), water, and a bathroom that has a flush toilet with TP, not leaves. (Been there, done that also.)

Camping

Let us remember the vastness of the Internet. For what ever link someone can find, there is another link and with most likely a different answer.

Read the part about "Glamping."

I'm so glad that I have reached the end of the Internet.
