Aug 2017: RV. Did not ask, 6 other RV there. Well lit. Gassed up at Sams Club next door. Aug 2017: Van. Three other RVs parked in SW corner by river walk, short stroll east to Colby park. Didnt ask to park. Very pleasant. Aug 2017: Stayed here last night. Plenty of RVs and trucks. One pig spent the night too. I may go remind him to clean his stye. Aug 2017: Great nice stay, best warm reception I have ever gotten. Nice stay. July 2017: RV. Parked OK. Did not ask. Parked near garden center with another RV. There were also a couple of RVs and a semi parked in front is Sams Club. Aug 2016: Stayed here last night. Was fine. Three RVs in parking lot. Apr 2016: Parking on the SW corner of the lot is adjacent to a city walking trail and a nice grassy open area. Looks like above walking trail with park benches. Very quiet. Plenty of parking. Jul 2015: Fourth of July night 2015. Parked in front of the Sams Club next to Walmart as there was a fireworks display launched from the Walmart lot. We had a great view and the folks in both Walmart and Sams Club were very friendly and welcoming. Sams closed at 6 PM so the lot was pretty empty. There is a Burger King next door and there are other dining options close by. Walmart is open 24 hours. There were several big rigs in the area. We just stayed one night. June 2015: We stayed 1 night in an RV. There was one semi with trailer, a Uhaul, 3 other RVs and a couple of cars. A couple of cars left and one car arrived - all in the middle of the night. There was an old trailer there with what looked to be a homeless man sorting bottles into shopping carts next to it. This was my 3rd Walmart stay in 2 weeks. I left comfortable in the other 2 but this one made me feel uneasy and I kept checking outside all night. Nothing happened though. I was also awoke by a police car blocking an intersection for awhile with full lights on around 3am. It was through a neighboring yard at the back of the lot and added to my uncertainty of its safety

Why list store Locations?

They do not support us and we do not endorse or support this store in any way. We always encourage people to support campgrounds and rv parks. Many people traveling on the road these days use stores for parking and supplies. Many locations do NOT allow over night stays in parking lots due to store managers or local laws. Please call ahead to be sure if you want to do this.
