Our new Walmart supercenter has a big sign near the entrance. "No bus, RV, or semi overnight parking." Our old Walmart used to allow it. Not sure why they changed the policy.

$1.99 a pound is a great deal, but is so darn hard to get the whole thing in the Norcold freezer. So that means a big pig out BarBque, and then all the parking police say that you are over stepping the boundaries of overnighting.

Corporate Greed, and I'm not talking about WM.

At the Super Duper Walmarts, you'll find big BBQ pits conveniently situated throughout the parking lot...

Some community ordinances do not permit overnight RV parking at Wal*Mart. In that case, it's not up to Wal*Mart. The city thinks your sewer stinks.

And just who benefit from that? It's not the city. It's not WM. Does that also include Sam's and Cosco?

I seen on the news last night that a bunch of people are protesting an Alberta Walmart for taking a stool away from an elderly greeter. They since have said he can have his stool back. He says he won't go back until they give the seating back to all greeters. So here's the question, Do you think from now on we will have to get the greeters permission to overnite in the parking lot?

I'm a new forum member. I have to say, hands down, that this thread is the reason I choose the iRV2 forum. What's not to like about a group that has page after page about Walmart parking!

OK. I've learned that I must stick to the Walmart topic so here I go . . .
I've never park at Walmart. But that's only because our previous rig was a pop-up. I'm quickly bypassing the camping vs. parking issue, and going instead with the thought, would I really want to spend the night in a parking lot with only canvas and vinyl between me and the wal-martians? No! We are now the proud owners of a nice hardsided fully contained, 5th wheel. Look out Walmart, here we come. Before you think I'm some kind of Walmart stalker let me explain.

I worked just a block from the north Spokane Walmart. Everyday my evening commute, I'm a bicycle commuter, took me right by the RV parking strip. It's a lovely place to spend the night. Away from everything, a really nice grassy strip, and on a quiet street between Walmart and Home Depo. Really a better place to stay than some campgrounds. Also I'm cheap, DH is even cheaper and while he dosen't quite share my excitment about Walmart parking, he still remembers the KOA we stayed at, three years ago, in Butte MT that charged us $50. to spend a night where we arrived late and left early.

We're almost ready to take the 5th wheel out for our maiden voyage. I suggested we stay at a least one Walmart, but DH wants to stay on the grid for at least the first time out.

Oh well. I'm hoping for many Walmart tales in the future!

, One-Nighter

And especially, Welcome to the Walcampers Club!

And thanks for the review of the Spokane Walmart.
I'm adding it to my "must sleep there" list right now...

Just make sure it's the north Spokane Walmart. Let me know when you're coming, I'd love to join you. We'll have a party at the Walmart.
Whoo Hoo!
