Even though our family has been weekend and vac. RVing since '93, we've never put up in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Evidently, this is a popular overnight stay. I've seen only 2 or 3 RV's in the local Wal-Mart at any one time. My next question has to be this: Is there a National Wal-Mart store location guide?

Hammer,

We had heard about spending the night at Wal-marts so I went to their web site and e-amiled them asking about it. They e-mailed me right back and said:

SOME OF OUR STORES HAVE AVAILABLE SPACE, AND SOME DO NOT, YOU WILL NEED TO
CHECK WITH THE STORE MANAGER. I WILL MAIL YOU A MAP WITH A LIST OF OUR
STORES AND THEIR PHONE NUMBERS.

Thank you,

They sent me a map and a little magazine. We were told by other campers at Wal-Mart that in the store you can buy a road altas that shows where all the Wal-Marts are for less than $5.00 But I think the map I was sent was more up to date.

We had our very first Wal-Mart experience this summer. We stayed in Winnemucca, Nevada. We even had really nice views and we were right next to the Highway patrol:) There were about 4 or 5 others spending the night too. We talked with one couple who had been gone from home for three months and they had spent 30 nights in different Wal-Marts. That can really save a lot of money when you are on the road that long.

I have also heard that in Arizona the state has out lawed it and you can not stay at ANY store in that state.
