Is this place accessible with a 20ft travel trailer?

No, the only legal campsites are down difficult high clearance 4x4 roads. All of the roadside sites are illegal and strictly enforced.

Hi! We have a 35 ft motorhome - a 1985 Airstream 345 with low ground clearance - and with Jeep in tow. AND we were newbie RVers at the time! Just go slow and choose your space carefully and I think you'll be fine. We were! :)

hmmm id think high clearance is necessary for this road. might be a few spots towards the front for the bigger rigs but those are always the first taken

You can get there, but you will need to go the back (south) way from the town of Apple Valley. If you try to go right up from Rockville on the Zion side you won’t make it.

It really depends. When I went there, road was really muddy. Road is wide enough but it's mostly uphill so you might want to reconsider.

Unfortunately not. The road is pretty rough.
