I believe they are all paved roads. That many big rig semis drive daily.
And will be passing you when on them.

And some of them are 4 lane big rig friendly.

Doesn't really answer the question.

A Rand McNally Motor Carriers atlas highlights in orange all the roads in America that are legal for 13,6tallx 8,6wide and legal for 80,000pounds. If a truck can travel it a motorhome can.

I see that 535 is not colored orange in the Motor Carriers atlas. Anyone know if it is OK for a 40 foot DP?

Thanks

Your biggest problem might be getting into a spot at the Fort. The spots are plenty big but the two times I've been there (in the premium loops) the roads themselves are very small, a one lane without shoulders, and the folks that decorate or have huge vehicles have them right at the edge of the road. It took a LOT of maneuvering to get in.

In my experience, I won't get there after dark again and will try and time my arrival during the day when (I hope) folks are at the parks and I can see (it gets dark at night).

We were at Ft. Wilderness in early June this year. Premium site in the 500 loop was plenty big enough ... but ... the folks in the site across the access road had at least 4 cars and two golf cart trailers parked along the access road. 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!

We live and die by our Motor Carriers Atlas. Traveling on interstates is so not on our list of routes to use.
