Can someone stay in a camper or RV parked on my property?

City ordinance permits someone to stay in a legally parked camper for up to 10 consecutive days. State law only allows one camper per lot. Two or more campers meet the definition of a campground; multiple other regulations are then applicable.

Except for residential areas, temporary parking and occupancy of a camping trailer is only permitted in a commercial campground. In residential neighborhoods, the following restrictions apply:

  • May be occupied for no more than 10 consecutive days
  • May not be parked in the city right-of-way
  • May not be parked on a city street or alley
  • May only be parked on a lot that already contains a house
  • Must be located behind the front line of your home
  • Must be parked on private property
