Here's a little known fact about Walmart: did you know that RVs can spend one night for free in participating store parking lots? The Walmart Parking app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to find the nearest Walmart parking lot that offers free one-night parking for RVs.
If you’re an RV’er then you know better than anyone how important proper rest is so that you are alert while driving. With that said you may not necessarily want to have to spend money each night just to park for the evening.
The Walmart Overnight Parking Locator app offers a solution to this problem by providing user with the information they need to find a free overnight parking spot at one of the participating Walmart locations.
In fact the founder of Walmart was an RV enthusiast himself and that's why the one night free parking rule was established.
Despite the fact that this isn't a free app the price is so much less than you'd have to spend if you had to pay a parking fee overnight. The app currently has 4.5 out of five stars and in its last update there were updates made with hundreds of parking reports added.
Guiding You to the Spot
The Walmart Overnight Parking Locator app supports Walmart stores across Canada and the U.S. The app provides you with information on all the stores that do and don't allow free overnight parking.
The locations are all plotted on a map just to make the app more user-friendly. The app also finds your location on the map as you drive so you can always find the nearest location. The map has filters you can apply such as locations with a restaurant, garden center, pharmacy, and/or fuel.
Let's not forget as well that the map doesn't just show the Walmart locations it also shows you up to 150 nearby points of interest.
Even though locations show up as allowing overnight parking it's always a good idea to check with management just in case. Users can also report any experiences they have had there. The user interface is smooth, fast, and easy to navigate, allowing you to quickly find a location nearby.
