Where can I sleep with my RV?

Where to sleep in my RV in Canada?In Canada, campgrounds are the only places where you can legally park your RV for the night. 

Spending the night at rest stops and shopping malls is strictly prohibited.

That is why it is important to carefully plan your Canadian RV holiday.



There are thousands of campgrounds across Canada. To book a camping site, you will need to know the length of your vehicle and the number of passengers. 

Make sure that the campgrounds you choose accept RVs.

Your camping site will cost $40 to $90 per night, depending on the season, the destination and the number of services.

Canadian campgrounds are classified according to the number of services available:

1 service = electricity
2 services = electricity and water
3 services = electricity, water and sewer

The following websites will help you find campgrounds by province:


Rest stops

Sleep in a rest area with an RV in CanadaRest stops are located along major highways. They are identified by the sign on the right.

It is strictly prohibited to spend the night at a rest stop. The maximum stay permitted is four hours. 

You may decide to risk it, but there is a good chance that you will be woken in the middle of the night and asked to leave the premises.


Shopping centres

Note that it is prohibited to spend the night in a shopping centre parking lot in Canada. 

The exception to this rule is Walmart, which permits RV parking on its store lots where possible.

Be sure to ask the store manager's permission before settling in for the night.
