Akibase,
It depends on the individual Walmart or commercial parking area. Suggest you do a search of what is in the area you think you'll be stopping in and then contacting the store to ask them.

Akibase, Mrblanche responded in post 5135 to your original post. I looked on the app Camp and RV by Allstays and came up with roughly twenty Wal-Marts under the filter Ask to Park.

PULEEEZ! IT'S NOT STEALING! It's just harmless grazing.

And PULEEEZ, tell me you're playing us with that serious stuff.

There's nothing funny about people being cut and bleeding.

Who said anything about stealing??

You buy your food at the Deli and/or McDonalds, grab a fold up chair and head to the TV section where the game is already on.. Where's the stealing?

I also submit that I am creating jobs 'cause now they need to hire at least 2 more employees - a go'fer in a blue shirt to cater to me, and a loss prevention officer (you maybe) to sit behind the cameras

I can't believe we are even talking about parking in a parking lot after all the yrs spent to re-store a RV and not in a woods in a RV place all good with nature. This thread goes against everything RV'ing is about.A cheap really dumb move to even be in Walmart.

Look,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,one more time.................Walmart owes you nothing.........Wake up!!!. Rving??..............sure.......sure.

Some of the divider islands are all grass and nicely mowed. In fact, the back side of most WM have some kind of natural barrier such as trees or tall shrubs. I've see folks lay down their patio mats on the grass islands and they still had enough grass left to tie out the dog. A lot of campers just don't appreciate all the nature that WM builds into each super center/campground. They money I save by camping at WM instead of a private CG buys me enough beer to supply me, my DW, and a few friends. We're considerate when we camp at WM so that we're always welcomed back.

I assume you're kidding, otherwise they might get the idea you think people stay there overnight to save money!

I feel sorry for Jacob. I hope he wasn't allowed to breed.

I mentioned to the Manager at the Palm Springs W/M that I just loved what they have done with the parking lot!





Now, if I can just get a nice Newmar with graphics like this to park next to me........










Final observation: How is it that someone with the screen name "Fleamarketer" cannot be in love with the idea of low cost or free services?

Don't the mosquitos in the woods have West Nile? .....no thank you.... I'll stay right there in the parking lot. That way if I see mosquitos, which I shouldn't, I could run in and get a fogger.
