Surely I'd call first, but in general, will it usually fit in?
As you and others have said, it really depends on the spot. One of the local NPS campground has several spots the same paved length. I could fit in about half of them and I am "over length". The way these ones are laid out I could keep my tires on the pavement and my back end would hang over.
On the other sites there are trees or other obstructions that would prevent the back end from hanging over.
So it is not just about the pad length, but what is around the pad.
