I thought that I heard somewhere that you could park overnight in Cabelas' parking lot. Has anyone ever heard this before?

Done it many times, No problem,
The ONLY problem is ... I spend way too much money in the store, either that night or the next day.

I have even stayed in the parking lot of their offices, (much quieter than being next to the semi trucks) Still no problem.

Done the same at Bass Pro Shop stores.

If you look at the Cabellas' website at each store location you will see those with dump stations and those that permit overnight RV parking. It is often good to call the store ahead of time because in some areas local ordinances prohibit overnight parking and the store has to abide by that - for example - I have read several conflicting reports about the Cabellas in Pennsylvania - some say they were given permission to park, and some say that they have been told that a local ordinance will not allow it - and this seems to change from report to report. Always best to check first with the store.

My wife won't allow me close to Cabella's-I read this thread to her and she's still laughing.
Said something about a fat chance, I will ask her later.

I personally went in the Pennsylvania Cabela's and asked the manager and they said there is no fee and we can stay and don't need to ask next time. We did spend money inside

Havent done this at Cabellas but I sure like the OUTDOOR WORLD - Bass Pro Shops for over-nite stops. When we do it I always go inside and let them know I am spending the night in their parking lot...

Alot of them follow their OUTDOOR scene into their parking lot. Some of these places are nicer setups than where we end up camping at (Trees-Shrubs and all..) When it gets real quiet early in the morning maybe you can drop a hook in their outside fish pond moat.

Its a WIN WIN thing for all these camping stores... You will definately go inside and buy something...

Some of the Cabelas have full hookup RV parks. We stayed at the Sydney,Nebraska site last year - just like a regular RV park with all the amenities, and right next to the store.

Cabelas' in Post Falls has a dump station, dog kennel, small horse corral and a fresh water spigot. about 15 spaces marked for Overnighters and Boondockers. I stayed there last week just down rd from WallMart

We overnighted at the one in Mitchell SD, but as others said, check with the store first.

Any Store or Shopping Center can be a Good Place to Overnight. Naturally there are quite a few that don't allow or encourage this practice.There are a few places We have been where even parking to shop can be a bit scary so We won't stay there for sure.
We always ask permission unless there are already units set up.
