Yes, almost all of the back-in sites have you backing in from the passenger side. My wife helps me back into sites like this with our walkie-talkies. The B section that we are in seems to have the worst slope and the narrowest sites.

The shame of this campground is that they have great amenities but the RV sites and roads seem to be neglected. This campground is overrun with ground squirrels and the site next to us has so many burrows that you have to watch where you walk for fear of twisting an ankle. I dont know if anything could be done about the squirrels or not, just saying.

If you think that site is not stay at KOA Gothenburg, Ne. We just went to Iowa from Phoenix to visit family and stopped after 500 miles each day. That place was by far the worst place I have ever stayed or camped. We would have been better off at a rest area. No attention was paid to the roads or grassy areas between sites and the amenities were very dirty and unkempt. I would like to stay somewhere near Estes Park sometime though. The site you stayed at looks okay. I am okay with having to level a little bit but backing in would stink though.

We camped in one RV park where our slide and the neighbor's slide overlapped by about 3 inches. Fortunately it was a front slide on his side and our rear slide. The view? Disney nightly fireworks were spectacular.

The National Parks are also notoriously unfriendly toward dogs; something else to consider. If you can do without electrical, the National Forest Service campgrounds are much nicer IMO.
