The answer is complex.. Some stores do, some do not, some even have sewer dumps, some do not, some do.. But not"on campus" (They own property elsewhere)

In many cases there may be state, county or city laws rules or ordiances restricting overnight property to licensed campgrounds only.

Strangly, the people responsible for these annoying laws etc include the parent of Camping World. You see, they also own campgrounds, and thus belong to the campground owners assn. Which argues for such laws.

Boondocking is camping WITHOUT hookups!

BTW, the original question was actually not about boondocking, (although that is what the OP asked).
It was about overnight parking at Camping World.

We overnighted at CW Indianapolis with 50 Amp electric. It proved very convenient, other than the site was rather uneven and we couldn't level and when sleeping we kept rolling! We also spent the night at CW in Little Rock,Arkansas. There were a few hookups next to the building but they were already taken. The site was level and good for us since we were traveling through and just needed a nights sleep.

Have stayed overnight @ Nashvillle & Syracuse CW - was on power, got water and was able to dump. But this was a few years ago.

CW Syracuse has had a padlock on the dump flapper for a few years now but still has some electric hook ups open along the back guard rail.

All the Camping Worlds that I have been to that have dumps, have them locked in some way and you have to pay to use them.

We overnighted last week in New Braunfels, TX which is between San Antonio and Austin. We checked inside they told us power was available first come first serve and the dump could be used for free. Found several 50 Amp boxes available. The next morning the dump station had a nice new hose in the dump that you just needed to attach to the RV.

The point is: overnight parking, at at Camping World, (or in a Walmart parking lot, a truck stop or a rest area), is not camping/boondocking!..... AND camping anywhere with shore power is not boondocking!

Depends on varying definitions . . . . here's one common one:

Urban Dictionary: boondocking

I think we all get to choose the one we like without criticizing another.

No argument from me.
I should have said "IMO" since "boondocking" means different things to different people.
Sorry.

Let's just say sometimes the written word does not convey a true meaning and leave it at that.
