walmart camping?

Free overnight parking at Walmart is no secret in the RVing community. Most of us have done it  at least once.

RVers have "Wallydocked" for decades. But more Walmarts are banning the boondocking practice.


In 2020, CNN reported that the number of Walmart stores allowing overnight RV parking had dropped sharply, from 78% to around 58%.

"These unregulated, unlicensed, and unmonitored campgrounds pose a threat of illness, injury, noise, and crime to a considerable number of members of the public."

Whether or not RV camping at Walmart gets banned for good, you’ve got other options to choose from.
