IIRC it was less than $10.

From the Walmart web site;

We also sell a special Walmart edition of the Rand-McNally Atlas in our stores that includes Walmart/Sam's Club locations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. The cover denotes "includes Walmart Store Directory." If you are unable to locate this special edition, please contact a store associate or ask for assistance at the customer service desk.

While they did not show a picture of it it sounds like the one I was referring to.

There's a free POI file download for MS Streets & Trips that includes Walmart locations. It also shows which one's don't allow RV parking.

Walmart as a corporation isn't changing its mind daily. The Overnight RV Parking Policy at Walmart is set by individual store managers, within the scope of local laws, and there are constant changes at one or another of their several thousand locations.

"Larrygrandpa's" advice about talking to the manager is good advice. Walmart's corporate policy, as stated on their corporate website, says that RVers should obtain permission from the Store Manager before parking overnight. In the majority of store, the Manager has delegated the responsibility for granting this permission to the customer service desk, so that's the best place to ask. If a manger is needed, they'll call one.

Jim that is exactly as I find it. At one store where there was a N.O.P. Sign the employee at the desk did just that "called the manager" and he OK'd the overnight stay, at most other stores permission is granted at the desk.

Cheers

That's not unusual, Willey. I've received many reports from RVers who have asked permission to park overnight at Walmarts and other "big box" stores where there were "No Overnight Parking" signs in the lot -- yet the manager granted permission for a one-night stay.

The reasons vary widely. In some cases, the store has the signs to keep our RVers who try to stay multiple nights or park without store permission. In some cases the signs really mean "No Overnight Truck Parking," but the store purchased generic signs. In a few cases, the signs are in only one part of the lot, and mean "No overnight parking in this part of the lot."

You never know for sure until you ask, or unless you're using an information source that already has this information.

I would run the genset, if needed, but would keep the slide "IN", though I realize that some RVs almost have to put out the slide, to be able to get around the bed and such. I wouldn't put out the awning or the chairs and grill either. Hey, it's a place to rest, not vacation! And I for one am very thankful that they allow us to stay the night.

Some places have local ordinances that won't allow overnight parking, whether it be Walmart or on the side of the street. Often, the Walmart parking lot is not owned by Walmart, but by an separate company, and they set the rules.....they will usually post signs!

If everyone would just try and leave the places nicer than you found them, and not "step on toes" of other people or businesses, we might find that we are welcome in more places. I know many people who walk around Walmart parking lots, picking up trash, as a way of "paying" for the use of the place for the night. A very nice way to do things!


Sounds like the way it should be if ya ask me.... Least we can do.

I try to use the ole common sense! If you allowed some one to park in your side yard over night and you later looked out to find slides out, lawn chairs and the looks of camping! How mant times would you offer to play that game? No matter who the Manager is, his bosses come around and not all of them love you! Soon enough we would see signs like lovers in a Bar> Get a room!

We usually locate the Walmart we plan to stay at and call ahead to see if they allow overnight parking. Their phone numbers are usually available via Google map or Mapquest locater. Have noticed a lot more heavy truck traffic at out local walmart lately. Am concerned that the wear and tear they are causing by oil leaks and such may cause Walmart to change their policy in overnite parking.

I wouldn't bet on that
Just not too much Wally docking taking place in the snow belts now days. RV's are either gone South or on their pads under a ton of snow
I was in Wal Mart today, they were stocking the RV'ing supply shelves for the new season.

Cheers
Willey
