PA National Park setup for Montana'a

We have a senior life pass for National Park camping. Does anyone know of a national park in PA that can accommodate the height and length of Montana's?
We drove through French Creek State Park this past weekend, which is about 15 minutes from our home, but the sites were 48 feet long, the roads were not wide and there were some low lying tree branches. The camping sites are spacious, wooded and comfortable and very affordable at $28/night with S/E/W, but all we saw were camping trailers, 34 feet in length, and some motor homes.
It seems PA parks are not so accommodating to fifth wheels, except for KOA, Good Sam Club or Route66 RV Resorts. We enjoy the scenery of state park or national park camping.

try calling the park. if they can accommodate you they should be able to tell you. If not, they will know they have work to do.

Agree with Jeff, a phone call never hurts. A lot of the government parks are sized around 35 ft max length. You will do better coming out west.

I have called and found most of the national parks in PA do not accommodate RV camping or any camping at all. It is the state parks that offer a great camping experience. The more south and west you go, the more there are National Parks with camping. Thanks for your input.

Gettysburg has lots of parks that fit large rvs. Yes, it is in southern pa but it is a national park. Let's face it...state parks were set up at a time that most rv's were much smaller and they can only grow rv sites slowly as land and funds prevail. Your rv choice may have lessened where and when you can visit unless you try private campgrounds and venture out of your local area. Maybe your answer is also having a small travel trailer or pop up to stay local and use the Monte for commercial rv parks.

No way. We have waited a long time for our Montana 3750fl. We did own a 24' travel trailer before we now own our Montana. Would not trade it for anything else. We will retire in it in 3-years. We love it!
