Some more info please...

Park:
Assume slides in, jacks up..
Key in ignition? engine running? foot on brake?
No other interlocks that I know of that should prevent shifting from park (even all of above likely not interlocked...)
Any issues when driven last?
Since MI - any ice buildup underneath for some reason that could interfere with mechanical shift?
Then we get to the transmission...

Headlights:
Do any of parking lights, fog lights (if applicable), low beams, high beams work?
Headlights themselves typically on their own fuse and relay... those would be starting points if no low/high beams. Unlikely both bulbs and low/high would all go out.

What year is your rig?

OK.. description changing a lot from 'Won't go out of park(gear shift) n no headlights'.

Sounds like everything at issue so far is on the chassis side - so focus there... I assume it won't start now based on other things not working? (Or at least won't start if the headlights/taillights/etc aren't working at the time...)

Hard to diagnose from distance - but my initial thought would be battery... A battery that won't accept/hold a charge could behave like that (had a U-Haul truck 2 months ago do exactly that halfway through 1000 mile trip... till they replaced the battery.)
May read 12+ volts with no load - but any load will drag it down. Even managed to get it started to drive a bit further - until I shut it off again.

Does Emergency Start switch help? (a very dead battery may not be...)
Sounds like you were camping when it failed?
How long ago did you drive it (aside from what you just mentioned)?
Plugged into shore power?
