Like many RVers, truckers, and car-travelers, we occasionally park at roadside rest stops overnight.

In which states is it legal to park overnight?

Each state has different official rules about this. Here's a list of the states that officially allow overnight (one night only) camping at roadside rest areas in self contained vehicles (no tents).

  • Arizona 
  • Arkansas 
  • Connecticut -– only on Illinois Toll Road 
  • Indiana - only on Indiana Toll Road 
  • Kansas 
  • Nevada 
  • New Mexico 
  • New York - emergencies only 
  • Ohio - only on Ohio Turnpike 
  • Oklahoma 
  • Oregon - 14-hour limit 
  • Texas 
  • Virginia 
  • Wyoming - with some limitations

We've spent the night at roadside rest areas in other states as well and have never been rousted from sleep by the officials.
