I am planning to head out to Ocracoke Island, NC to the NPS park. The website lists driveway length at 31ft. My TT is 31 feet but I have alot behind the tires I can back up further, but I am sure not enough to park my truck. Will they give me a hard time if two of my truck tires are on the grass?

How far over the dunes to the beach? I know at Cape Point and Oregon Inlet NPS campgrounds it is a pretty good hike to the beach.

Plan to take the Swan Quarter ferry to relax and not have to drive the extra 80 miles each way.

I don't think they will give you any problems about your tires. You'll enjoy your time there, very natural. We went in August of one year. Didn't have a generator, I thought we were going to die from the heat at night in that fifth wheel...no hook ups there. Lol
We really enjoyed the Cedar Island Ferry that transported us to the island.

It was a lot of fun.

I had not issues with the tires being on the grass. I parked the best I could be still ended up with one or two tires in the grass. It was interested trip. Started with nice weather and so many mosqitoes it was not funny. Then it went to rainy and Nor-ester storm. Saturday night it was so windy no one in the campground slept, I don't believe. The next morning I only saw one tent that survived all others were destroyed. Needless to say the Ferry trip became very interesting in the huge waves coming across the sound. The 220ft ferry was really rocking, on Jeep actualy bumped another car on the ferry from the wet deck and rolling. Overall we still had a great time playing games inside and hey we were at the beach so we fished in the rain.
