They were just starting to open up MVNP for camping. We drove around in our Jeep where we could. It looked like our 37' DP could fit in some of the places. The access roads looked pretty tight and the sites didn't look exactly level. I might give it a go sometime. We much prefer to camp within the borders of the State and National Parks when possible.
Hope that you have a great time.
