Can my local zoning authority prevent me from using my rural land in any manner "absent a primary dwelling" being built first?

Question Details: There is nothing in the zoning code that specifically states that this is the case and they are so narrowly written that if they were read in that manner, one could conceivably be prevented from even landscaping the property at all. Basically, my zoning authority and I are at an impass. I am currently utilizing my property, which is out in an all but deserted area of the county, to park 3 vehicles and a travel trailer on. The other properties in the general vicinity have numerous cars--like a dozen to several dozen vehicles, debris, garbage
