The gravel road is much better. We went about a mile before turning around but I think the road could be followed to the end. Out and back is about 6 miles. The road is a little rough at the start but smooths out fairly fast. Trail 41.79861, -124.21657

There are 6 pull through RV spaces at the far end of the lot. Registration is required - get a players card and go to the security desk to check in for two free nights.

We decided to exit US 101 at Moonstone Beach and take Scenic Drive north to the casino. Scenic Drive twists and turns along the coast with great views of the ocean but, even though we didn't have any trouble, I don't recommend it for RVs. Part of the road isn't paved and some sections are one lane.Casino 41.05514, -124.12974

The hospital building is the only original building. It's a museum with exhibits on the fort and the native tribes but it's undergoing renovation and was not opened when we visited. The surgeon's quarters has been reconstructed and the rooms are furnished with period pieces. Interpretive panels describe life in the fort from the point of view of the surgeon's wife. A path circles the parade grounds and has more interpretive signs.
The parking lot is small. We fit in the accessible parking space which was slightly longer than the other spaces. Longer RVs may fit on the edge of the parking lot next to the fort grounds. 40.77717, -124.1874 Park

Burlington Campground is a figure eight loop with 58 sites. The roads are narrow, the curves are tight, and the sites are short so, according to the park website, trailers and RVs are limited to 24' however the reservation site accepts RVs up to 30'. In the photo we're in one of the accessible sites, #54, and there is room in front and back of us so a longer RV will fit. The accessible sites are close to the restrooms and have wide parking pads. They do not have paving to the tables and fire rings.
Five trails are accessible. We walked/rolled on four of them. Founder’s Grove Loop Trail and Fleishmann Grove Trail start across from the visitor center. Founder's Grove is almost level and very accessible. Fleishmann goes slightly downhill and has a few cross slopes where wheelchair users may need assistance. All of the accessible trails have an informative sign at the trailhead.
Drury-Chaney Loop Trail has an accessible 1.6 mile loop with an additional loop to make a 2.4 miles round trip. We walked/rolled the accessible loop. This trail is the most difficult of the three trails with a rolling terrain and a few steep cross slopes. RVs will fit in the pull offs on both sides of the road. Park 40.30819, -123.90869
