Thanks so far for info. What we have gotten so far is great. Our main concern was finding a place to go to if RV parks and campgrounds were full or an emergency. Just trying to look ahead abit. I know others will follow this thread so all this info will come in handy.

Chester -

My apologies for not responding sooner.

There is a Yahoo! group dedicated to Overnight parking at Wal-Mart.
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/walmartrving/

There have been threads in that Group that have talked about OTHER Overnight Parking - at Cracker Barrell restaurants, etc. That group also maintains a complete data base of W-M stored - indicating whether or not they allow O-N parking.

It never occuried to me that there was so many Wallmarts. Its almost unbeleivable.

Chester,

I know the Cottonwood, AZ Wally is good to go for overnite. Of course, with Dead Horse state Park there you'd only want to do that if you couldn't get in which is always a risk as it's very popular in season. The Anthem Wally right off I17 as you come into Phoenix is a no go as are many of the Phoenix Metropolitan ones.

Thanks-----Wally World will be a back up as required. We do want to do some desert camping and lots of travelling and really see things and meet people. I went on the wally world site mentioned above and man are there a lot of Wallmarts.
I have looked at a lot of state parks and national parks. This should be lots of fun.

Here is a link to some posts for camping in NM & AZ-mainly public places.
http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseacti.../1.cfm#23304108

We are in Tucson now, just in time for some record temps for this time of the year. It was very nice when we got here Tuesday, but each day is a little warmer. But I am sure it is doing simular at home. The region has a High Pressure cell over it. But it will being to cool down some in a few days they say. Hot here but snowing in northeast of the nation.

It should be just right by the time you get out this way.

Might find something in these to help:

Prince George is probably the best known example of what can happen when a government creates a law in support of special interests. Prince George is a city that depends heavily on tourism and the overnight parking prohibition was a disaster. News of the ban quickly spread throughout the RV community. Some RV groups recommended bypassing Prince George altogether. I sure did. On my return from Alaska, I made it a point to avoid spending time or money in a city that had the reputation of being unfriendly to RV travelers.
The RV parking ban was modified in December of 2006 to allow RVers to stay up to 36 hours but the word has not spread nearly as fast as it did originally. It may be years before things get back to normal in Prince George.

The wal-mart over night parking Yahoo! group has stories like that...

Often Wa-Mart does NOT own the land, so the landlord sometimes makes the rules, and sometimes the city council (or other local agency) gets pressure from campgrounds. 36 hours is MORE than enough as the policy is really "overnight" - as in... GONE in the morning.

That Yahoo! group STRESSES that 1) you are NOT camping - ONLY "over night parking". Do NOT delpoy awnings, chairs, bbq, etc. 2) ALWAYS ASK permission. 3) Park in designated areas 4) do NOT EVER discharge any water onto the ground (see below) 5) Thank the store manager and let him/her know that you appreciate being allowed to stay over night and that is one of the reasons you patronize their company.

HORROR story (The squeamish should shield your eyes....) a REALLY BAD camper was caught dumping the BLACK water tank into a Wally storm drain. EWWWWWWWWW. That is the behavior that WILL kill it for everyone else.

We drove on down to Quesnel, BC and were welcome in the store and the parking lot.
I took this Welcome to Fred Meyers picture at Sodotna, Alaska. Fred Meyers has a RV dump station for free use. We were a guest at this FM on two occasions a week apart. Hope you can read the picture. Click on the zoom button upper right.

Flying J stations welcome overnighters, and services include free dumpstation, propane available and a retaurant with great food. We often stop when on the road with our rig.
