Washington RV owners pay for these rest areas in our license fees. FYI - your tires are not marked, but do not leave your vehicle unattended for hours. I have NEVER seen anyone kicked out! For daytime lunch stops, etc. be sure to park ONLY in the RV area is so marked, truck area if not marked. After dark, when truckers have all the spots tied up, I usually pull into the auto side as far from the buildings as I can, for a few hours sleep. (30 foot RV).

Really not RV friendly. RV's must park with 18 wheelers. I usually find another place. Last resort if you're passing out at the wheel. The dumps are free.

The "8 hour maximum time" for camping was based on the old DOT rules for truck drivers. The DOT rules now mandate 10 hours off duty. The state realizes this, and has stated that the signs will eventually be replaced.

Thanks Duffy for your work on the different State rulings on overnight stops, at state rest areas.
