Is it legal to sleep overnight in an RV or small truck at Michigan rest areas? I might arrive before sunset and not be able to get a campsite in the dark.
I successfully slept in one long ago. The Department of Transportation web site does not say you cannot, but that doesn't mean that it isn't posted at the stops (haven't looked).
Give 517-373-2090 a call in the morning and find out for sure.
The above makes sense. I've never stayed "overnight" at a rest area, but I've gotten a couple hours sleep here and there. Definitely while towing a camper or RV, I've climbed in back and slept for a couple/few hours.
Can't recall seeing any signs in the two we stopped at this weekend on a trip to the UP.
The entire purpose of rest stops is to keep sleepy drivers off of the road. Setting up a tent, BBQ, fire pit and game of cornhole would be frowned upon, but sleeping inside a parked RV, tractor trailer or even car should not be an issue.
I agree, the cornhole would be pushing it... :lol:
