FAQ

What is Overnight RV Parking?

When you're on a long trip in your RV, a trip that will take two days or more, you probably need to stop someplace to sleep overnight. You want to be rested so you can continue your trip safely in the morning. If all you need to do is stop and sleep, you might not need all the amenities that RV Parks and Campgrounds offer. If that's the case, you don't need to pay for those amenities either. Across the USA and Canada there are thousands of places that allow or even encourage RVers to park overnight, for one night only, for the purpose of sleeping overnight.

You can find more tips about parking at various locations here.

How is parking different from camping?

Camping in an RV generally includes using RV awnings, lawn furniture, BBQ grilles, and often electric, water and/or sewer hookups. Most Overnight RV Parking locations don't have RV hookups, and it's considered inappropriate to use awnings, BBQs, lawn furniture, etc. Use of levelers and slides is also discouraged in most Overnight RV Parking locations, but may be possible to use in others. In general, if your RV looks like you're camping, you're camping. If your RV looks like you've just parked it for a short time, you're parking.

How can I submit a correction to an Overnight RV Parking location?

If any information for a location is incorrect, such as the address is wrong or the overnight parking policy has changed, you can submit a correction through the "Suggest an edit" link at the bottom of the description of the location on our website.
