I've often found them to be more useful than the photos of just the campsite itself.

Listen to these guys. I'm 56', and it is rough. Sometimes, just having enough room to swing the frontend of the truck to back in is a problem.

This is why campgrounds put limitations on certain camp sights. Add to it that probably 75% (no one on this board of course) can hardly drive forward on a 4 lane road, let alone back up between trees with bushes etc on both sides of the road. And it's always the ones that yell I don't need your help, I know what I'm doing...then they take out a bush and the side of their rig...

Bottom line, best to go by what the campground lists, they really do know best and want your stay to be happy.
