Probably about time. The whole process was so abused. Far too many RVs vs shoppers.

 

And why? At least three beautiful yt parks within fifty miles...

 

Last few times, we were appalled at the number of RVs, obviously bmany staying far more than the one free night...

Honestly after seeing what’s available in Whitehorse, I can’t blame RVers for choosing an asphalt parking lot over the so-called “parks” in town. We paid for one night at a park and it was one of the most crowded places we’ve stayed outside of Las Vegas.

 

If local Whitehorse RV parks would do some upgrades so that guests weren’t crowded in like sardines, and have more full hookup campsites available, more of us would be willing to spend the $35 – $45 per night at their shoddy establishments. I know I would.

 

We have only overnighted one time at  Wally World, It was not a memorable experience, but when there are no other choices, you make the best of it. I wish more stores would allow overnighters and enforce the one night stay, by chalking the tires and calling the cops if people do not move on promptly.

 

Better yet, open some actual secure pay RV spots in store lots that have the room. It would be an opportunity for Walmart to embrace the RV community and also make some money. Similar to what many Native American casinos are doing..... Washington is simply stuffed with them. ... http://www.casinocamper.com/rv-parking-locations

Yes, the Washington casinos can be nice. We stayed at one a few years ago.

We don't stay at RV parks, if we have the choice. Just an example, lake lebarge yukon territory campground outside Whitehorse by 15 miles or so, 20 or 30 minutes, is $12 cad, $10 us, decent sites, some lakefront, and free firewood....

Just saying.

We also have enjoyed free Walmart overnight on travel from point a to b. Recently, outside Kansas City,ks.

It really got out of hand at White horse. People don't move on, as they should..
