If not, we are thinking of a Walmart. I'll download the list of Walmarts that allow overnight parking and we'll look for a stay for the night.

So Camping World turned out to be a flop. They suggested I call the service department on the day of my trip to check that there were spots open. I forgot and called about 15-minutes after the service dept closed. The fellow I spoke with said that those spots were dedicated to service customers whose work needed to span multiple days. So we moved on down the road...
I called the Lumberton, NC Walmart and was told to park "out by the restaurant" and that security would be around to check on me. Between asquared's comments above and something I read on the Walmart RVing Yahoo group, I felt better looking further down the road.
The Dillon, SC Walmart told me to park out away from customers. Their lot was pretty level and we had a good stay. We were 1 of 4 RVs and a big rig there for the night.
We stopped in St. Augustine at Flying J for dinner. We didn't stay the night but they had a really nice RV parking area away from the big rigs. It was filled with 20+ RVs seemingly parked for the night. I was pretty surprised.
