Anyone know of a Walmart RV parking app? A way to locate a Walmart near you while you are traveling that allows RV parking?

Thank you, Barney

Reasonable question and I think it was asked in good faith....so, I will answer the best I can...
I don't think there is a Walmart specific app for, "camping."

(the rest of this thread may get very interesting)

I'm pretty sure there is no app for what you ask. Your best bet is to go in the store and check with the manager to see if overnight parking for RV's is OK. Many Walmarts have stopped allowing RV's to park due to local town/city laws prohibiting overnight parking.

No Walmart specific app far as I know either.

I would recommend two Android apps in the Playstore:

RV Parky (free and updated often)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rvparky.android2

Overnight Stay Finder

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=my.walmart.overnightparking.abcdefinder

Not real familiar with either but the first has done a good job when needed.

back when we were overnighting at wally, flying j, etc we would use the walmart app to locate a nearby store’s phone number and address. we’d then always either call ahead seeking permission or one of us would go into the store to seek permission. the lot, while used by the public, is ultimately private property.

Allstays.com had a dedicated section on Walmart and I think they have an app.

It's always best to call and ask and not depend on some app. The privilege to park overnight at a Walmart (if otherwise not prohibited by ordinance or development) can be revoked at anytime by the Walmart manager. You can be allowed to park on a Monday but Tuesday they decide they had enough and start prohibiting overnights. Unless the app is updated in real time, it may not reflect the current status of overnight parking.

It's an email based group with a national "No Overnight Parking List" as well as a regularly updated list of Walmart locations (fewer everyday) where you can park your RV overnight for free. You can leave/ask questions to the group members regarding conditions at specific locations. Expect the standard wide variety of responses.

Allstays works well for this purpose.

If you have a GPS POI-Factory has a Walmart POI with park/no park indicators. It will map you to Walmarts in your area.
