Pima Air & Space Museum Tucson - Boondocking?

Is it possible to boondock at, or overnight at a Walmart/Cabella's (or similar) near the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson?

Thank you, in advance for your thoughts.

No responses, so you may have to google some likely merchants, call and ask. Because Tucson is such a popular winter RV area, it's very possible the practice may be restricted by merchants or local ordinance. But I don't know for sure. Fun museum.

Thank you for the info, Jon. Further googling shows that there are at least a couple of (I assume) Indian casinos within a half an hour of the Pima museum where overnight parking is allowed.

Can't answer your questions about boondocking near there, but we did stay at the Davis-Monthan Air Force base FAMCAMP. If you fall within one of these categories you could stay there. "Authorized Users: Active, National Guard, Reservists, Retired, 100% DAV, DoD civilians, Guests."
Great museum, we enjoyed the boneyard tour also. Got to see the stealth fighter parking spot but hard to see the actual aircraft in stealth mode.

Looks like you may have what you need, but otherwise I always call ahead to a Walmart and ask if they permit overnights.
Easy peasy as they say. (where'd that one ever come from?)

Walmart is very close to the museum, as is camping world, if you like those places. Nicer place but more of a drive is Gilbert Ray campground in Tucson Mountain Park.

Snyder Hill is also close to Saguaro National Park, and the must go, Arizona - Sonora Desert Museum. Not Sure what the Government shut down effect has on it.

Anyone know if the shutdown is effecting blm usage. It doesn't seem likely, but read some parks which were open closed do to the lack of ability to control trash and vandalism

Depends on the specific BLM area. As of today, here at Quartzsite, the Long Term Visitor Areas are open, the offices are closed, the dumpsters are getting emptied, the dump and water fill stations are open. No one is collecting $. There are signs at the entrances that state "some services may not be available". The free Dome Rock 14 day area is open.
