You might think so - but most states don't allow it - or have limitations on where (which roadway). Typically posted as you pull into the rest area.
They are intended for you to pull in and rest certainly - the catch is how long they allow you to stay...

Here is a list of those that ALLOW (one) overnight stay:
(You live in Arizona - one of the states that DOES allow it...)
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • Illinois only on Illinois Toll Road
  • Indiana - only on Indiana Toll Road
  • Kansas
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • New York - emergencies only
  • Ohio - only on Ohio Turnpike
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon - 14-hour limit
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Wyoming - with some limitations

My experience has matched the article though in other states - I've never been questioned or asked to move...

Ohio is the only one I've seen with electric hookups you can purchase - but others certainly may have that too...

Georgia (south of Macon if I recall) on I-75 has a very nice area for RV's specifically - also posted as no overnight - I've stayed there multiple times.

Florida rest areas are posted as no overnight - but they have Havens' set up at some weigh stations for trucks to overnight - I've never tried pulling in to one of those... but wouldn't hesitate to use a rest area here if I had the need to.
Not yet retired...
