Watercraft and RV Parking
County police enforce the on-street parking laws for watercraft, boat trailers, motor homes and camping trailers in parts of the eastern end of Prince William County. Police officers can issue a warning or a ticket and the owner will have ten (10) days to remove the vehicle from the secondary street. The Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted in March 2006 to amend Section 13-320.1 of the Prince William County Code to restrict the on-street parking of these types of vehicles in the eastern end of the County, as well as individual restricted parking districts County-wide.

These changes were made for streets in eastern Prince William County because of concern about visual obstruction, vandalism and parking-space issues. As a reminder for properties of one acre or less: watercraft, boat trailers, motor homes and camping trailers must be parked on a paved surface. In addition, some homeowners associations have covenants prohibiting parking on private property. Any such covenants are still in effect throughout the County.
