Quite possibly they're giving you a pull through site.

We typically add a couple of feet to our trailer length after being shoved into a site that was too small for us previously.

usually the trailer length is enough. Don't be afraid to ask questions everyone is or was a rookie once and most will answer a question without a hassle. Just make sure you give all the details so you get the right answer.
Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

If in doubt ask the park. We found that Oregon state parks site length includes both the trailer and the tow vehicle. I spoke to them on the phone and the gal double checked with her supervisor because I thought she might have mis-interpreted the web site sizes. If you book a site and don't fit hooked up, they ask you to park your truck in the lot. First place I've encountered this. We ended up in a private park as all of the longer spaces were reserved.

The Oregon State Parks website gives the length of every site. I check, because we often end up with wn extra vehicle, and I want to make sure it will fit.

Most state websites will list the length of the sites. I was just surprised that Oregon requires the site to be long enough for the trailer and the TV hooked up. They told there is absolutely no parking allowed off the paved site pad so even though there might be room to park at an angle the TV could not be off the pad. I understand their reasoning; just was surprised to learn this.

It varies so much, especially with State Park and county campgrounds...they can be pretty optimistic as to what constitutes usable space (not to mention their whimsical concept of "level"). I'd add the 20% that geotex recommended and then another 4-6' for parking your vehicle perpendicular across the front of the site. Doesn't hurt anything to have too much space.
