IN the northeast there are many older parks that have limitations on length of RV's. Same with state parks all around the country.

I have run into a few length limited parks.. For example the vendor operated RV park inside the Grand Canyon National Park is length limited. So I drive through it.. WITH MY CAR and .. Well.. Yes.. I'd not wish to try to take my 38' Class A into that place. the turns are too tight.. I have been in some state parks like that as well back in my PUP days even with the PUP one of them was tight.

So now you know. it is not "Discrimination" it is turning radius.


Home is where I park it.

Many National Forest Service parks have limited length restrictions. If you like to boondock you will find many such restrictions.

I cannot imagine owning an RV that might be too big for an RV park.
I like em under 25 feet. Then they fit almost everywhere.

A lot! It is humorous for me to see folks with short campers answering the question and say they have not seen that problem. Also, the longer you are the more difficult to level on a slope.

We camp in a lot of the provincial parks in Ontario Canada, and most sites are restricted to 18feet, even though we are 26 feet we still book as most of the time we have been there before and know what sites we will still fit into. but yes there is restrictions with length in a lot of places

While not necessarily a restriction, finding open sites for the larger rigs can be challenging (expect for those $100/night resorts!). We are now in MI trying to find campsites and there are plenty available for 30-35 footers but finding a site for my 40' coach has not been successful in the areas we would like to visit (think beach). We were doing find until last week and now all the parks are booked for larger RV's and I may have to stay at Wal-Mart for our next stop before moving on.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We like state parks and some of those can be limited. As others have said, it was the way the park was built years ago. State and federal parks seem to keep things as natural as possible and as a result it can make things tighter/smaller. That said we have never had an issue finding an alternate CG nearby if one doesn't work - but we travel mostly on the East Coast.

Were those parks regular commercial RV parks with full hookups or were they government campgrounds?

I know lot's of government campgrounds limit size but I've never seen commercial RV parks that limit the size.

Once we exceeded 40' there have been a lot of commercial parks we don't fit into. The newer boring parks have room but the older fun parks are limited. That is also true of electrical service available.
