overnite parking

Hello to all, I'm trying to find out if anyone knows of the website site that rates overnite parking sites(ie. Walmarts,Lowes etc). We were at a rally and I overheard a conversation about a couple who pulled up a site to see how it was rated for safety easy axcess etc. Was going to talked to couple the next day but they left early the next morning. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hi Teri, and welcome to the site.

I would suggest doing a search on this topic, as it has been discussed many times before. Lots of good information there.

A google search will bring up several options, all stays.com being one, free campgrounds.com another. There were other sites too. You can find all kinds of stories about parking lot overnights, good and bad. We did a Walmart one night, a truck stop another. First asked permission and were told where to park. Haven't done a parking lot in the last couple years.

One of the bigger ones for Wal-Mart parking is:

BUT.... although it is corporate policy to allow overnight RV parking, more and more Wal-Marts are not longer allowing it due to either those abusing the privilege, local ordinances, or mall owners regulations.

TIP: Even if there are signs up that say "No Overnight Parking", always ask anyway. Many times they are posted but not enforced by WalMart or the locals.

I use a iPhone app called ALLSTAYS and it has a filter that will tell you if Walmart does or doesn't allow overnights… Along with other freebees, like Cabela's and other outfitters. (or truck stops, etc) I think it cost around 10 dollars but is worth every penny…It will sort out all the different sites available in the area along with costs… I love it.
