Official Policy

Follow these basic RV camping etiquette rules whenever you are camping at Walmart or other retail stores.


Ask First

As stated in the official corporate policy, all RV campers should request permission from the store manager before staying the night.

Slides in

In an effort to minimize the amount of space your RV occupies, keep your slide outs pulled in while camping overnight at Walmart.

It's Not a Campsite

Campers should only use Walmart to rest and then move on. Therefore, campers should not pull out chairs, grill or otherwise set up camp.


No Dumping

Some new campers mistakenly think that gray water is clean and can be dumped in parking lots or other open areas. This is absolutely untrue.
