Stayed there in our 45’...Getting into the site was a little tight.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
Our ”New” ride...08 HR Navigator 45’. A nice upgrade after 14 years with a 04 Dynasty 42’.

Just an alternative!! We stayed here this past summer, was a great park and the drive to the Headwaters was not that bad. Might be worth checking out

Another possible alternative: The Bemidji KOA. Bemidji is not all that far from Itasca State Park.

I quiz people on "Where is the only place that the Mississippi flows northward?". Answer is: From the headwaters to Lake Bemidji.

Call first. Not sure the city snow plows run though the park.

We stayed at Lake Bemidji State Park a couple of years ago and really liked it. Our rig isn't the size of yours, but there were large one in the park. Not a bad drive to Itasca SP. We stopped in town for lunch on the way back and the entire trip was very delightful.
Went from camping to Rv'n in Jack (our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser). And loving it!

We have stayed inside the park in a 30’ trailer, but there were a number of sites suited to big rigs. If you stay inside the park, bring your bikes or rent some. The bike paths are great and numerous.
