Wal-Mart Camping - Parking Lot Pleasures

Written by Steve Gillman

"Do you know about Wal-Mart camping?" We didn't know, butrepparttar old man atrepparttar 149123 campground in Florida insisted WalMart not only allowed RVs and vans to park overnight, but encouraged it. "Free camping," he told us, and we didn't wait long to take advantage of this new knowledge.

Somewhere in northern Georgia we pulled into a Wal-Mart, and sure enough, we saw some RVs off to one side ofrepparttar 149124 parking lot, looking like they were there forrepparttar 149125 night. We were heading back to Michigan in our conversion van, and free camping sounded good to us. We parked, plugged in our 5-inch T.V., and settled in forrepparttar 149126 night. Nobody bothered us. Inrepparttar 149127 morning we usedrepparttar 149128 bathrooms inside, and bought some orange juice.

The next night we camped for free again, this time at a "Flying J" truckstop. There were RVs camping there as well. You'll find Flying J Truckstops all over, and they actively courtrepparttar 149129 RV crowd, counting on gas and other sales. We filled our tank there inrepparttar 149130 morning, and bought some food as well. As long as campers stay out ofrepparttar 149131 way ofrepparttar 149132 truckers, free camping is likely to continue.

Other Free Camping Places

Generally, you can camp free on any BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land, unless it's specifically forbidden in an area. This is also true of National Forest lands. In both cases you're limited to a stay of two weeks in one place, though this rule is not always enforced, andrepparttar 149133 next two-week place might have to be only a hundred yards away. State forest lands are usually open to free camping without permits, but policies vary by state (The two-week rule seems to be common).
