Many people who are traveling in their RV will stay a night at a friendly Walmart to get a good night's sleep before heading back on the road the next day. Personally, I haven't done it, but one never knows what the future brings.
Some Walmart stores allow boondocking, some don't. It all really depends upon the city ordinances.
The St. George News has an article on spending the night boondocking a Walmart.
It begins with:
WASHINGTON COUNTY – Wal-Mart isn’t just a retail behemoth. Its stores’ parking lots also double as RV parks and it stands to reason that warmer weather brings more motorhomes and trailers staying overnight on its pavement.
Not surprisingly, there are apps and websites dedicated to detailing the best and worst Wal-Marts at which to stop and stay the night while RVing as well as the Wal-Marts that do not allow overnight campers, which, according to rvtravel.com is only about 10-15 percent of Wal-Marts nationwide. Online videos are also available, including one by rvtravel.com, that tell RV travelers the do’s and don’ts of RV “boondocking” – parking somewhere without hookups also sometimes called dry camping – at Wal-Mart.
The article has some dos and don'ts on Walmart boondocking.
