Cabelas in Sidney Ne has an actual campground. Pretty decent and cheap.

For us Walmart is not free, we will pay Walmart $100 - $300 on the first night of a short or long trip stocking up the MH but, we would have needed to stock up some place, why not Walmart and spend the night.

If we need another overnight on that trip, we will usually pay that Walmart $30 - $50 for what we forgot to get at the first Walmart

We gladly do this and so appreciate Walmart providing (at most WMs) a well lit, safe place to overnight.

Side note, we research our Walmart stops using satellite views and reviews on Rvparky to plan our overnight stops and always ask the manager for permission while our shopping cart is full!

Boondocked at a super WM last week. Then Boondocked at a Sam's Club a couple days ago. I like Sam's Club better since it shuts down during the night and traffic in the parking lot is reduced.

Sounds like me.

Agree. So far it seems Walmarts along the interstate routes appear to discourage over-night guests generally more than the WMs located off the interstates and in smaller towns. During our last stay, we had kids partying in the WalMart parking lot, racing their engines, sitting on their hoods and whooping it up as teens will do. But, to their credit, by midnight they all cleared out and went home and they kept a somewhat respectful distance from us. It was, after all, their neighborhood hangout and not ours. So, live and let live.
