no overnight parking, we asked but it was rejected.

Report Check-In

was a good place, they recently put up no overnight parking signs and employees are actively kicking people out, best move on

Report Check-In

This was a great spot to stay when checking out Olympic NP, but today I got the knock from Walmart employees who informed me there is no more overnight parking here.

Report Check-In

Typical Walmart many RV's and vans stood here overnight as well. Could not complain.

Report Check-In

No more overnight parking here! We had an awesome night round the back while we got repairs done in town but looking at the 30 odd campers here, some permanently parked up, I figured it wouldn't last long. Sure enough the next day the manager came by to say they're ending overnight parking here. Park at your own risk.

Report Check-In

This lot is NOT open to overnight parking as of today, apparently. I spent 2 nights in my conversion van. Lots of RVs in the lot, none of them were broken down etc, no rowdiness, everyone just minding their own business. First night I had no problem but noticed a Walmart employee sweeping that area of the parking lot for what seemed like a long time. no problems that night either but in the morning they had employees come out and tell everyone they couldn't Park overnight anymore, and had an employee sit in a chair observing while everyone moved along. So, it sounds like things had reached a tipping point I guess.

Report Check-In

I broke down and coasted into a parking spot late one night. I ended up having to stay and camp in my van for a few nights while I was waiting for a mechanic to become available. It was refreshing to see a place where the unused parking lot space wasn't occupied by sloppy humans that treat the
space like a garbage can/toilet. Instead, it looked like a quaint little neighborhood capsite/RV park.
People were quiet, respectful, kept to themselves, yet reached out to help when they noticed someone, such as myself, who needed it. No riff-raff, no drama. Great job fellow travelers! Keep it up!

Report Check-In

stayed here multiple nights while working at a local restaurant. plenty of people are here long term but everyone is very respectful. parking lot stays very nice and the Walmart employees are very welcoming

Report Check-In

Many vehicles of all sizes stayed overnight. Noisy most of the night but wasn't bothered. Easy access to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic NP. The store itself was well stocked & clean.

Report Check-In

Not a 24 hr Walmart. It was a nice enough Walmart and I stayed for 1 night. I liked how close it was to Olympic. Good cell service and there are a couple of beaches in town, but I didn’t go.

Report Check-In

This Walmart wasn’t bad at all, park toward the back garden area and it’s actually very quiet at night, the closer you are towards the front the louder and more distracting for shoppers. Stayed here 3nights but was sure to wait till after 5pm, tons of RVs and vans pull in at sunset, especially on the weekend. Please don’t ruin this spot, its a great location for travelers with the NP and aquatic center close by.

Report Check-In

One of the loudest Walmart I have ever experienced. Traffic and semi trucks in and out all night long. Maybe people in RV at garden center had quiet but That was not last night. People in RV cackling laughing 3-5 AM -this is why most Walmarts have stopped giving permission!!! So many people behaving badly, acting like it’s a campground. Sequim location is much cleaner and quieter.

Report Check-In

sometimes all you need is a Walmart.

I'm afraid this location will probably start cracking down soon. lots of RVs parked every which way in the parking lot blocking tons of spaces. an abandoned trailer near the garden center. a permanent resident or two.

Report Check-In

Overall - quiet, convenient and good for a few nights.
Parking - room for many vehicles and a way to get on beach if desired. Many other RVs and vans in lot. Parm at the back away from entrance for quiet snd courtesy to shoppers.
Very quiet after 10.30 pm.
Network coverage - full coverage
Washroom - nope, but you can go to the ones in store.

Report Check-In

Stayed two nights so far, plenty other rvs and vans as well. Bright lights, but I have blackout curtains for my bus. I’ll probably be back again. I’m going to buy food and batteries from them soon. Thanks walmart.

Report Check-In

Spent a night here. Lots of cars & RVs spent the night here too. Pretty peaceful. Always appreciate business supporting boon-dockers & I stocked up my fridge & dry food as much as I can.

Report Check-In

Nice and quiet by the garden center. The most RVs I’ve ever seen at a Walmart, but was very peaceful and felt safe.

Report Check-In

Slept here for one night with no issues. Lots of RVs and vans in the back. Pretty quiet. Left the store after getting groceries there at around 10:00am. Felt safe. Thank you walmart for letting us sleep overnight! please stay respectful and keep it clean so we can keep using this spot :)

Report Check-In

Lots of vans, rvs and skoolies. Felt very welcoming and safe. Good views of the mountains from the parking lot even.

Report Check-In

thank you Walmart for allowing overnight parking!

Report Check-In

Stayed two separate nights at this Walmart as we were driving into this area and driving out. Both times had no issues and was pretty quiet at night

Report Check-In

Great spot, was quiet and felt safe. Numerous other travelers also using the lot. Parked on the side by the garden center.

Report Check-In

Slept well and no one bothered me. As others have said, it was pretty quiet in the garden area.

Report Check-In

We were thankful to have this spot for overnight. We have a truck and camper, very easy access, no one disturbed us!

Report Check-In

Ouvert de 6h00 à 23h00. Piste cyclable à proximité (1 km) à partir du Walmart. Prendre la 101 vers Sequim et prendre la première intersection après le concessionnaire d’auto à gauche et le début de la piste cyclable est à votre gauche.
La piste est sur le bord de l’eau sur pratiquement toute sa longueur. Environ 35 km pour faire l’aller retour jusqu’au bout de l’avancée dans la baie (poste de contrôle des « muguet sound pilot »). Belle ballade!

Report Check-In

Not a typical Walmart this one was quiet. At least by Walmart standards. 20 campers of all sizes and room for more. Will be back to catch the ferry to Canada in a few days.

Report Check-In

A very friendly Walmart with nice employees. They came out in the morning and checked in with us to let us know there’s a 24 hour limit. There are some long term looking rv’s that seem to be taking advantage of the parking so it’s probably a matter of time before they don’t allow overnight here. (They were rude to the employees that came out.)
This is a great spot outside of Olympic NP, show some respect and kindness to the employees that work here and don’t leave a mess

Report Check-In

Quiet night’s stay next to the garden center. There were about 10 rigs here. Management came around in the morning and politely informed everyone that we may only stay for 24 hours. No issues at all.

Report Check-In

There’s so many great places to stay, and this Walmart is one of them I recommend it

Report Check-In

Nice place to stay. Parked by the garden center just like others mentioned. There were a few other campers parked close by, and nobody bothered me. Would stay again!

Report Check-In

Lugar tranquilo para dormir, tinha alguns viajantes dormindo aqui. Antes de ir para o Olimpyc NP aproveite para abastecer comida no Walmart já que nas próximas cidade sentido costa, os mercados são pequenos e bem caros.

Quiet place to sleep, had some travelers sleeping here. Before going to Olimpyc NP, take the opportunity to stock up on food at Walmart as in the next town towards the coast, the markets are small and quite expensive

Report Check-In

quiet area tucked away from road and walmart traffic. friendly staff. able to use the restooms.

Report Check-In

Nice walmart with very large parking lot and pretty quiet as far as Walmart’s go. Got sent here by the cops after being kicked out from another spot at 2am. This seems to be the only spot left in this area not getting shut down for overnight parking besides the rest stop, so stay here. About 20 other vehicles staying here when we were.

Report Check-In

Due to Covid, they are not allowing overnight camping. We got away with it on a Friday night, but Saturday, right before closing time, a group of employees knocked on all 8-10 campers in the parking lot and told them they couldn’t stay.

Report Check-In

Store manager came out to the parking area before dark to inform folks overnight parking was not allowed any longer. I heard from others this has been happening for the last several days.

Report Check-In

Overnight parking temporarily closed due to COVID. 3 WalMart employees knocked on my RV (along with like 10 other RVs) to tell us we had to leave since this store is not currently a 24-hour store due to COVID.

Report Check-In

Very quiet place, got some good rest here!!

Report Check-In

As described by the others, no problems at all. Recommend the space behind the garden center as well, very quiet.

Report Check-In

Quiet by the garden center, a few locals and travelers, got smoked up by a local at the employee smoking area bench.

Report Check-In

Stayed here one night over by the garden center. Few other vans, RVs, converted buses parked here as well. Very quiet. Description says OR (which I’m assuming is Oregon but this Walmart is in Washington. Location is correct just wrong state listed in the description.

Report Check-In

Great for staying the night before heading to the NP in the morning. We had a quiet night although there were lots of other campers around.

Report Check-In

One of the best walmarts I've stayed at. Open 24 hours, and very quiet over by the garden center. Lots of rigs there, but no trouble finding a spot.

Report Check-In

Quiet Wall-Mart just outside of Port Angeles. Probably the best Wal-Mart parking there is, and there's not a lot of options nearby (There's a casino, a few pull outs west of crescent lake, and some sketchy forest roads to the east). The only downside is the the lack of parking options due to many, many large rigs.

Report Check-In

The description is wrong! Port Angeles is in Washington, not Oregon!

Report Check-In

As described, standard 24/7 Walmart camping.

Report Check-In

Very quiet Walmart. Did not ask permission as there was already 4-5 other RVs.

Report Check-In

Many RVs around. Already quiet next to the garden center, thats odd for a Walmart!

Report Check-In

arrived around 6pm. because there was only one camper at the parking place, I ask at the service counter if it's okay to stay overnight- they say yes for sure! it was surprisingly quite for an Walmart parking place. top

Report Check-In

Plenty of RV’s around, flood lights nice and bright. Had a car come through in the middle of the night with loud music but they left after not long. I felt safe.

Report Check-In

On y passe notre pire nuit depuis notre départ ( je sais très bien pourquoi j'évite les Walmart). Du bruit, un couple saouls qui crient et font japper leur chien. On s'éloigne d'eux dans le stationnement vers une heure du matin....

Report Check-In

24h open Walmart that allows to overnight. We asked the employees if it was ok to spend the night here and they said yes. There were around 10 rvs at night. It was calm and quiet, we had a good night of sleep.

Report Check-In

Good place to stay while visiting the Olympic NP, quiet, lots of RVs.

Report Check-In

Relatively quiet for a parking in town. Floodlights and cameras, safe. Walmart open 24h/7d, hence toilets accessible all night. Parking for campers is sideways behind the building, at least 7 other cars, trailers and camper vans here for the night. Free and legal „Walmart Camping“.

Report Check-In

We stayed one night with our van on the parking. Good spot to discover the Olympic Park or to take the ferrie.
The Walmart Close at 12pm.
Others campervans.
Restrooms, free wifi.
