Corps of Engineers

Looking for a thread on Corp of Engineers campground sites. Have you tried these facilities?

Specifically interested in the Northeast areas.

Hi Pam,

In my experience, the Army Corp does an excellent job maintaining their campgrounds. I am sure you will be delighted with any you may stay at.

Best bargain we've found. Hookups are not too common though. Locations are always on bodies of water, because water is what the Corps manages. Half price which means $6 or $7 with a Golden Age Pass, the best deal you can get from the Feds.

There is a book available that lists all Corps of Engineers campgrounds in the US. It's in my trailer now so I can't give you the title or publisher. Also, I don't recall very many locations in the northeast. Most Corps campgrounds are in places near or west of the Mississippi River, if memory serves.

Reserve Usa handles reservations for most of them. All our local CoE campgrounds have electric, water, and dump stations. All are very clean and well-maintained.
Okay, the new entity is www. Recreation.gov
You can continue to use reserveusa, or the new site, both have maps of parks as far as locations and facilities.

I know there are quite a few Corp of Engineers parks around Lake Altoona just north of Atlanta, GA. I've been told they are very nice, the McKinney campground in particular. It's part of the Mobile district. I've found the New York District web page has a drop down box for all districts in the Corp of Engineers. Each district page usually has a link to recreation or camping facilities within that district. The link for Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi campgrounds can be found here. Terry is right, you have to reserve through either Reserve America or www. Recreation.gov.

Guidebook

One good guide book we've found is Don Wright's Guide to FREE Campgrounds Eastern Edition that can be purchased through Amazon.com for $18.95. A Western Edition is also available. While the term FREE is not entirely accurate, it does list Corps of Engineers parks along with many others that charge fees of $12 and under. PM me if you like and provide me with a specific area of interest and I'll research the latest edition for you. HAPPY TRAILS
