Fort Desoto- 43ft coach?

Anyone have knowledge of camping at Fort Desoto in a 40’+ coach at 13’2” tall? Last time we stayed was in our previous 38’ DP and I thought I told myself anything much bigger might be pushing it due to trees/vegetation in campground. Any 1st hand thoughts??

I own a 35’ coach and spend a lot of time at the camp ground but there are very few sites that can accommodate a 43’ unit but can be done. The sites will most likely be the pull thru’s but the bigger problem is 2 fold. First, it’s difficult to get a reservation in short notice, and second, the camp ground is not very good at trimming their trees.

Stay away from sites 165 - 198 because they will be difficult to back into. 210 - 229 should be doable. These are all no dogs allowed sites.

Most of the pull thrus are long enough but some make a curve and tree trimming is almost next to none.
