I think pretty much everyone we know that has an RV has camped at a Walmart. We’ve stayed in a mall parking lot before, but until this week, we’ve never camped at a Walmart.
From Glacier to Yellowstone we didn’t have time to stop and see any sights, ande had heard that the Walmarts in Missoula and Bozeman were very popular RV stops, so we figured it made sense to try them out.
The Missoula parking lot (pictured above) wasn’t very level and was really crowded. Overnight wasn’t very noisy so we both slept well.
The Bozeman parking lot was much more level, our spot was along a nice grassy area, and there was a lot less activity. Out of the two, the Bozeman Walmart is a much nicer place to stay.
I wrote this post yesterday and scheduled it to publish on Sunday, our first full day in Yellowstone. From there we’re going to the Grand Tetons, and will then make our way across Wyoming to one of our most favorite places. Deadwood South Dakota.
We’re taking the week off from work because we don’t expect to have much cell coverage or internet access. If we do, I’ll try to post. Otherwise, we’ll see you in a week!
