If you are planning to stay in the park, RV size restrictions vary among the campgrounds. Visitors can bring 40-foot RVs to Moraine Park Campground, 30-foot rigs to Aspenglen Campground, and 35-foot RVs to Glacier Basin Campground. Many of the park's roads are narrow and have tight turns, so consider renting a smaller, more maneuverable RV, like a campervan, for your trip.
