I wish every state published this:

California campground RV maximum length
This sure would make planning easier if every state published such a document.

Only if it is accurate. Many times we see length restrictions in the state park campgrounds for certain sites, only to find there is no reason for them. Recently at a New York state park a certain site was limited to 20 foot maximum length. Due to a problem with our assigned site the park people moved us to the 20 foot site by changing our motorhome length from 35 foot to 20 foot in the computer system. Shoot that 20 foot site was large enough for our 35 foot coach + toad with space to spare. They indicated they had many sites mismarked in the Reserve America computer system, but nobody knows how to permanently change it.

We had a spot in an Oregon SP, that was advertised at 15 foot max for our 17 foot TT. We called the park to see if they would let us take it because we wanted the location and there were few other choices. He had no problem letting us make the reservation and didn't know why it was categorized ascsuch, but said do it at your own risk.

As it turns out, it was a large spot as described above, but the angle to the road was such that larger vehicles would have problems backing in. We got in ok and had a great time.

And I know for Oregon state parks.....the listed length of the site.....means that the rv and tow vehicle have to fit.

I too wish they had something for every campground. I will agree with others that the sites are not always the size as advertised. Usually I find that a park has one size listed, but if you get there you will see there are sites much bigger than the max shows. I usually will check on google maps and see what is parked in the site I like or around the campground. Usually you will see there are 35ft RV's in spots listed as 25ft max. I have never run into a problem by looking at the sites and making reservations for a smaller site than I should be able to fit. I know that it could bite me, but it hasn't yet.
