Walmart Boondocking

This is an interesting article for those who stay overnight at a Walmart.

In 2019 on our way to Yellowstone we tried to get a campsite in Fargo ND. A lot of sites were closed due to flooding. We went to Walmart to shop and possibly stay there however they had signs no overnight parking. Ended up staying at the campground by the fairgrounds. We did see quite a few in the Walmart in Cody, WY. We had a site so we were good.

Was trying to find the news article, but remember recently a family suing Walmart as a boondocker that was parked in their lot, moved his RV closer in to a parking spot to shop. There was something in the RV (camp stove?) still warm and caught the rig on fire. Along with a neighboring vehicle the family left their child asleep in (alone). Unfortunately, the child perished.
Needless to say, situations like this is why no one will be allowed to boondock on property for lawsuit reasons.

As sad as that story is, why Walmart is being sued is beyond me!

I totally agree with you. Tragic situation, but I don't understand blaming Walmart. Lawyers are the bane of our society.

No kidding with the lawyers! I scrolled down further on the web page for the story and read the comments. A lot felt the mother was negligent including the other van owner and they donít blame Walmart.
