Pat, ask away with the questions there are many that will help out on here. I'm also a newbie to the RV'ing.
While I was down in Orlando Fl. area (Kissimmee)I was quite tired one evening after just arriving there. I pulled into the Super Wallmart and went in and asked the mgr. If I could park the motorhome for a few hours to catch some sleep. He said that the lot is posted (and it was) not allowing overnite parking of rv's. It was not a policy of Wallmart but a State Ordernance. After looking the sign over, he was right. It is a state wide ordernance in Florida. He did say that I could park and get some sleep as long as it was not overnight. I slept from about 9:00pm until 4:00am and was out of the lot by 4:15am. I was not approached by anyone that told me I had to leave.

Always found it beneficial to ask ther Wal- Mart manager's permission to overnight after I made some purchases and have the blue Wal-Mart bag(s) in hand. Want to show that I don't expect something for nothing, it helps make a good impression.

Im a newbie toooooooooo... and heck, Ive probably asked more silly questions here than anyone here ever wanted to hear about - again! The way I see it is this: This is a forum for all, and for all to get help, give help and perhaps even make a few RV'er friends. If some of the people dont want to post to questions over and over again, then 1) they can simply ignore the thread altogether (especially when it clearly states the subject in the thread line) and 2) they can just move on their merry way and leave my thread alone if they dont like it. What I dont understand is why do they even bother to reply at all... if they are so bothered by it, why arent they just 'moving on' and leaving the thread alone - if it annoys them so much, it appears to me to be a waste of their time to even bother giving such flip replies. Oh gosh... noone will ever be as perfect as me I guess! BAHAHAHA ;-) (kidding of course)

Continue to ask away!!

As for WalMart....I hope the information given to you by the others is of help to you. I know its helped me, so thanks for asking the question.

Last December we stayed at Wal Mart in Live Oak? Florida on way to Orlando. We arrived very late... around 1am to 2 am.... 4 or 5 other rigs were there also.

About 3am, we were awakened by loud pounding on front and rear windows. Jumped up, looked outside to see 2 Police Officers.... they told me I had left headlights on! (billyunt, Ain't I)
Florida law or not, they said they patrol the lot, knowing that a lot of tired out of state folks are there. I thanked them, and that was it.

Sad thing is, I'm not sure the original poster came back after the initial bashing he received. This is, after all, the Beginning RVing's forum, right?? Thanks to all who gave kind and informative responses. As another newbie, it's a question I've had, too. And I'm glad to now have the answer.

Have stayed at Walmart, after asking manager on duty for permission. Sure beats the truck stop. I didn't "camp", but just spent the night.

Allot of times questions are asked by others that I am also curious of the replies. For me this is probably the most significant attraction to the Open Roads Forum. I like to learn from everyones experience...

Just wanted to add the number of views to this thread says it all...

The policy does vary from Wally World to Wally World. Around here you ask the manager and he says yes and hands you a paper with THE RULES.
My favorite one is #2 Overnight patrons should be aware that the public rest rooms are not to be used for full bathing.
Sort of disconcerting to walk in and find 3 nude people washing up at the sinks.
