My 25fb is usually the smallest RV at the state parks around me.

We have a 30 ft. and have had few problems, like people say, make reservations on reserveamerica.com or recreation.gov. The one area of the country that I have found problems is the west coast. Most California State Parks have 24 ft. limits. Some Oregon and Wash. Fed. parks have all short sites. I have always found a park I like with 30 ft. sites. As far as the rest of the country just a few short sites. The biggest problem is some sites slope so much you cannot get a 30 ft. trailer level. If it does not say the site as little slope or is flat you may want to stay away from it.

Down here in the southeast, lower Alabama/Florida panhandle we have had no problems fitting our 30' Sovereign at state parks. Most of the time we have room to spare.

State Parks Requipment

I have a 25ft Flying Cloud in live in AZ, State Parks look at your TOTAL length. Base on my 25ft and Tahoe 40ft++ together.

Now if you pull it with a VW Bug you could be ok.

Places like Grand Canyon ( which we go a lot) will put you in a parking lot with the big boys, we find that Good Sam & KOA works fine and there are 100s of privet-own that are very close to National Parks that work for us.

Which sort of brings up another question, on the kind of camping experience one wants.

We recently returned from 6 weeks of camping in places like Death Valley and Joshua Tree NP, and the monster 5 wheels and mo-hos with slideouts are becoming so much the norm that it is becoming hard to find a campsite view anymore that doesn't completely consist of the side wall of the neighbouring RV and the rump end of our truck.

The OP wasn't talking about one of the petite Airstreams like ours, but for those of us who can fit into campground loops restricted to tents and small RVs, the improvement in the camping ambience is well worth it.

I'm sure the little 19 footers can enjoy some wonderful small sites!

My wife and I are willing to exclude those cute little sites and go with the 30 footer because we need the dual recliner set up and only the 30 footers come that way without having to give up the dinette.

Glad to hear that so many places can handle the 30 foot AS, even if the truck needs to park beside the coach.

I can't speak for every state, but in Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi a 30' Airstream will fit, but then a 43' diesel pusher will often fit. I have been in state Parks in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, South Carolina, and Virginia that if I recall correctly would accommodate a 30' Airstream or a 43' diesel pusher

Corps of Engineers parks around here have longer pads than the state parks. National Parks and Forest Service parks have shorter pads and are a slight challenge, but we have done it. Most of the time we let the rear bumper extend past the end of the pad- back up till the stabilizers are on the end of the pad-

This probably depends upon where you camp. We were recently in northern Idaho, at Round Lake and Priest Lake state parks. The maximum trailer length at Round Lake was 24'; and at Priest Lake, 25'. Round Lake is small and low key, but Priest Lake is really popular, and justifiably so. But the length limit is fine with us. It restricts the monster RVs to the commercial RV parks. (Having said that, we would happily camp next to an AS of any length! )
