If you are worried about roads not appropriate for a big rig get an Truck and RV GPS. There are several makes out there. With these you can put in you weight, length, and height and it will offer routs that keep you out of trouble.
There are also two apps that are very useful; AllStays Truck and Travel, and AllStays Camp and RV. Both will show things like low clearance.

I do find some of their ratings "pessimistic", however, in terms of ease of access, but still a great resource.

It literally took me 20 minutes to get backed into our site, all the while they sat in their lawn chairs and watched ... never once offered to move any of the vehicles. When I finally got the front end swung around, I doubt there was the thickness of the paint between the front end of the coach and one of the trailers.

Other than that, Ft. Wilderness is a great place!
You will get this once in a while. I never understood why some folks act the way they do. For the most part though folks will go out of their way to help fellow campers.
I like to be the guy people go home and tell their friends about. "We met the nicest people last weekend".
