We are traveling I-77 south from Cleveland to Savannah, Ga. next week. Looking for a good Walmart stop, safe, and plenty of space somewhere into North Carolina before Charlotte. Anyone who has stopped at a good one let us know.

Thanks.

If you can't find a WalMart, check Free Campgrounds and Free Campsites.

Sorry to be a little off topic, but what are the rules to stopping in a Walmart or Kmart parking lot? Can one stop at any? Being new to the RV world I just started to hear about this.

Many Walmart's allow over-nite parking (short term, on the out-skirts of their lots). Best to always check with management at the store, if they are available.

Some City ordinance, do not allow it, lots will have signs (No over-nite parking) at times!

Many RV'ers will debate it (for and against) the use of a Walmart to stop over.

Rules --use your common sense (short stops, don't setup camp, don't liter, utilize/support the store if supplies needed, etc....)

((SOME LOCATIONS))
Walmarts, Cracker Barrels, Cabellas and Camping World Locations, are frequent off the highway retailers that support over-nite parking.

PS: Truckers many times are also present.

I have done that before . To much kamakazi traffic across the parking lot and noise at night for me. I go find someplace quiet and secure.

Have you considered other options for overnighting? Churches, private clubs like American Legion - Elks - Moose - or even churches? Check ahead, you'd be surprised and those parking lots are usually much more quiet.

Yahoo's Walmart Rving Group which includes updated files of every Walmart that your are allowed to park overnight at. Remember, you must always ask member of Walmart management for permission to park in their lot, as there are some Walmarts where we are not allowed by either local law or store management!
