Driving in Rocky Mtn. National Park

We have a 40'DP with a toad. Has anyone had experience driving in this park with a big rig, and how are the campgrounds there for a unit of this size?

driving your big rig shouldn't be a problem, but most every campsite in Park will NOT accomadate over a 30 ft. RV
Suggest you stay in Estes Park or Grand Lake and drive the Park in your tow.

If you could get a site there are sites in Moraine and Glacier Basin that would fit your 40'. We've been there with ours! The paved roads are o.k. with a big rig.

Thanks for the info. It didn't look like our righ would fit too easily there. Estes Park may be the best answer.

Much thanks.
