I find I prefer a campground that accommodates up to 35 foot trailers because of sites with more space between you and other campers along with more privacy. After living with our Safari 28' for 10 years, we found we never go to campgrounds that we can't park a 31 foot Airstream. There are parks in British Columbia where back in can be tricky because of the layout. However, taking an extra few minutes will solve the problem with the longer trailer.
Relatively new to having a trailer in Cali ... seems like I've researched and found quite a few coastal campgrounds ... even down in Big Sur, Plaskett Creek takes RV's and longer trailers .. several in Pismo ... in Santa Cruz, New Brighton is an amazing campground & Henry Cowell in the Redwoods, further north..is Coastanoa ($$$ & very cold / windy) but out of this world if a warm sunny day. But with so few campgrounds here, they are booked within minutes of the 6 month wondow opening. 10's of thousands of acres of open land between Santa Cruz and San Fran, but land use and permitting means virtually nothing can ever be built, not even a basic campsite.
