That’s why we compiled this list, featuring national park RV size limits for parks across the country. Before you roll up to the gate of a beautiful national park,  get familiar with these national park RV restrictions. 

National park RV length restrictions 

The numbers below indicate the maximum RV length allowed in each national park. The length is combined, meaning the number listed for each national park RV size limit takes into account a vehicle plus the RV size.

These numbers come from the most recent National Park Service information available. They are subject to change based on weather conditions and availability, so make sure that you call ahead to inquire about spaces that will fit your RV. 

As a bonus, we sprinkled links to extra information about some of the glorious national parks. If you want to learn more about a park, things to do there, and the best times to go, click the links throughout this piece!
