RV Parking Prohibited – Carlisle Walmart

Many RV owners are accustomed to parking their rig in the parking lot of a Sam’s Club or Walmart for an overnight stay. Visitors to the Carlisle, Pennsylvania area should take note that the Carlisle Walmart does not allow such stays.

Signs are posted to warn RV owners of the store’s policy. Those who ignore the signs run the risk of being ticketed or towed. Owners should know that the parent company’s policy has not changes. In a statement on their website the company says “While we do not offer electrical service or accommodations typically necessary for RV customers, Walmart values RV travelers and considers them among our best customers. Consequently, we do permit RV parking on our store parking lots as we are able. Permission to park is extended by individual store managers, based on availability of parking space and local laws. Please contact management in each store to ensure accommodations before parking your RV.”

One RV owner made the mistake of parking at a Walmart near Chicago that also prohibited RV parking. It cost him $872.50 to reclaim his RV and its contents from the towing company. While this type of policy angers many RV owners, some retail locations contend that their parking layout does not allow them to accommodate larger vehicles.

RV owners should be sure to follow Walmart’s advice and check with the store’s local management before opting to park in their lot overnight.
