  1. Carolyn Bartnik says:

    Are the campsite spurs wide enough to park a small trailer and truck side by side?

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Yes, there are some that will work for side-by-side parking. Visually checking it looks like 2, 3, 7, 10, 25, 29, 39, 40, 45 and 49 have room. You can also click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check measurements of each site – as well as check availability, pricing and make reservations.
