My son worked night parking lot security at Walmart for a few years. That Walmart allowed RV's overnight. The manager allowed one old guy with an old motorhome to stay for weeks at a time. The guy was obviously poor. My son would buy food at Walmart and give to him. The guy would go away for weeks and come back for a few weeks.

I look at walmart parking to be a safe place off the highway to rest for a while until you can continue to your destination. As with anything in life the problems occur when people begin to take advantage of another's generosity .

I have used Walmart as a night time stop over to a destination. I've used them many times.

In many cases, it is not Walmart themselves that do not allow overnight RV parking, it is the City's bylaw/ordinance that does not allow it and Walmart has to comply.
I know this to be true in our City as the No Overnight Parking signs post the bylaw#.

If there are any commercial campgrounds close by a Walmart then they are in business to make money off paid camper's they will complain to city council enough to get a no overnight parking at Walmart.
