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.

A number of major RVing organizations have adopted a set of Overnight Parking Courtesy Guidelines that address this more fully.
