  1. Tent camping or Rv camping?

  2. One can easily pitch a tent, if you notice at the top the maximum spur is 30 feet, so if your RV or trailer fits in that space a RV can park there. It isn't really large... so be sure you can maneuver any rig you bring. Some parts would be more level than others. I have seen small RV's there and tents.
