Kansas Tourist Stops

This summer I'll be traveling through Kansas on my way to Yellowstone with an F150 and 25 ft trailer. I was hoping to catch some out of the way historical stops and was wondering whether there might be any kind of parking available. Specifically so far, I was looking at Alcove Springs on the Oregon Trail and the Hollenberg Pony Express Station near Marysville. One possibility is parking at the Walmart in Marysville. Does this one allow overnight RV parking? That may be my best bet if there is no parking or space along the road at these places. Thanks. Jeff

This Yahoo group is the best source for Walmart overnight parking:
https://groups.yahoo.com/group/walmartrving/

The list owner publishes a spreadsheet of the overnight parking status every few months. It's literally where many sites get their info.

The other option is to just call the store and ask "if they allow overnight RV parking?".

As for Kansas, the only thing I know is that I visited Monument Rocks National Landmark off of I-70 in very western Kansas. Awesome place and the kids enjoyed it. Not historical- just some rocks.

Walmart stays

Thanks.

I downloaded the pdf, I think it is a smaller file. This will be useful. There will be times traveling cross country when a Walmart will be useful for saving time and money.

Does anyone know if there is any rule at Walmart about disconnecting a trailer and leaving in the lot for a couple of hours in the middle of the day? That might be useful for a quick tourism stop but more important for taking the truck to a garage for something.

On Wally World etiquette ... I think it would be in poor taste to roll in to a Wally World parking lot and use it as a drop off terminal while you bandy about the countryside. Some Wally Worlds allow overnighters as a convience ... then people given an inch go for the mile. RVing is a great way to see the sights across this country at your own pace ... along with that comes responsibilities and hopefully thought into how you project yourself to others. Don't be a "cousin Eddy".
