This truly is like an RV Park. People go in and out of the parking lot no problem. Many people who work on the North Slope leave their rigs here and come down to Fairbanks on their week off. During the summer it can get really crowded.

Most people are fellow travelers getting their shopping done or resting. We utilized the parking lot to save some money and stock up on supplies. We never had any problems. At first it felt so odd to stay in a parking lot for so long but be assured the rules of RVing in Alaska are very different. There aren't many rules. Be courteous with your generator by turning it off at night and that's about it.

We ran our generator during the day no problem with no complaints from anyone. No one bats an eye at the amount of RVs in the parking lot it is a normal occurrence in summer for the Fairbanks Walmart. Enjoy your stay! And bonus tip there is some great sushi next to Barnes and Noble.

“Practically an RV park”

Like the Walmart in Whitehorse, YT, this one is extremely RV-friendly - just thankfully without the long-term residents (people were living in Whitehorse Walmart's lot the entire season!). They even have angled big-rig friendly spots in the outer area of their lot that make for an easy in-and-out.

Not a good location for light sleepers - it was at the corner of a major intersection with consistent noise from trucks. It's a 24 hour Walmart, so expect a lot of traffic both day and night.

We felt very safe here though; most everyone else overnighting seemed like a fellow vacationer passing through and very friendly. We never saw any security patrolling the lot, and probably could have stayed as long as we wanted. We were so tired after a long drive the day we arrived that we stayed two nights and nobody said anything. We also bought a lot of food at Walmart to restock after our border crossing, so we didn't feel bad about overstaying our welcome!

Walking and biking distance to many stores and some restaurants. Good option if nearby Pioneer Park is full or if you just need a place to sleep and restock for a night.
