Ask a Trooper by Sgt. Jesse Grabow- August 1, 2018

Question: Can a person park their camper trailer in the ditch of a highway?

Answer: Leaving or parking a camper or travel trailer in the ditch or on any highway right-ofway is illegal. A highway rightof- way typically extends near the top of the outside slope. It would only be allowed where signs designate it as a campsite. A portion of state statutes were used with permission from the Office of the Revisor of Statutes.
