overnight parking

The search for the best overnight motorhome parking can be a bit tricky but there are a few ways to make it easier. Many people find it difficult to locate the right place to park their motorhome or camper at night, especially if they’re new to the area, or if they’re travelling to a place where there is not much overnight parking available. If you’re planning to travel with your motorhome or camper soon, here are some great tips on how to find the best over night motorhome parking.

What is Overnight Motorhome Parking?

Over night motorhome parking is a place where you can park your camper or motorhome at night. Usually, these are motorhome parks, Aires as they are sometimes known in Europe, or campsites that allow overnight stays. In some cases, you might need to get permission from a homeowner to park overnight on their property and in some cases, you may be parking overnight in a car park that allows overnight parking.

Overnight parking may include access to services such as water and electric hook up, or it may not.

How to Find a Great Overnight Motorhome Parking Spot

If you want to find a great overnight motorhome parking spot, there are a few things you can do. First, you should start by researching the area in which you’ll be traveling. Google maps is a great resource for finding information about places such as where the motorhome parks or campsites are, if there are any rest areas nearby, and if there are any places you can stay with permission from homeowners.

You can also get information about the area by talking to people who live there. You can ask questions on forums and groups online or you can talk to people in person when you’re traveling. Another way to find a great spot to park your motorhome or campervan at night is to use apps.

There are several apps available that list places you can park your motorhome. One such app is Park4night. This app lists thousands of places where you can park and stay overnight. It shows campsites that you have to pay for and also free spots. You are able to filter the results by several options such as the rating, the height limit of your vehicle and the services available.

Users of the site are able to leave a star rating on a location and also leave a review, which is super helpful for other users of the app and allows you to see whether the place you are wanting to go is good or not.

We use Park4night on a daily basis to find our overnight park-ups and we rate this app very highly. Van life would be much more difficult for us without Park4night.

You can also use apps such as Camper Contact and Stay Free to find places to park. You can also find a place to park by contacting travel and tourism organisations in the places you’re travelling to. They might have lists of places where you can park.

Things to Look For When Choosing a Good Parking Spot

There are a few things you should look for when choosing a good parking spot. Ideally, you’ll want to find a place where you can park for free. While there are plenty of paid motorhome parks and campsites, it’s usually difficult to find places to park for free. If you can’t find any free places, you should look for the cheapest spots if you are looking to save money or are travelling on a budget.

You will want to look for somewhere that has good reviews on Park4night or the other apps that we have mentioned above. If you require services such as water or electric hook-up then you will want to look for a spot that provides these. You should also look for a place that is relatively quiet and has low traffic. You also want to find a place that has good Wi-Fi and phone service, especially if like us you need to work remotely in your van.


Finding the best overnight motorhome parking can be tricky. By following these tips, you can make it easier to find a great spot to park your motorhome or camper at night. You should start by researching the area in which you’ll be traveling. You can also use apps to find places to park at night. Once you’ve found a good place to park, you should look for a place that is relatively quiet, has low traffic, and is close to good WiFi and phone service. Once you’ve found the perfect place, you should try to get permission from the owners and reserve the spot before you arrive.
