WOW! That must have taken you a minute or two to put together! Thank you for taking the time to do this!

We have stayed at quite a few of those mentioned plus some not listed. I really can't say I've ever been to one that I would NOT return to. With this in mind I must say simply that some are nicer than others. Our most recent one was West Point in NYS. It was quite nice despite it being not fancy at all. Would love to go back. So, they are there for US to enjoy and it's OUR support that helps keep them operational for our enjoyment.

See ya'll on the road sometime.

I'd stay far away from the bases and beware of the drinking water in that city where the bases are located. Over fifty years ago I was trained using the foam to put out
shipboard fires. I see the military used the foam at almost every base. Read the link below and decide if camping there is right for you.

Please note what your are failing to recognize is that very few, if any, military installations in the lower 48 states produce their own water. They receive the water supply from the local municipality. I back this up with currently 10 years of active duty Navy experience as a Civil Engineer. Also, please remember that the two main emerging contaminates you elude to as a result of using AFFF, PFOS and PFOA, are well-removed using Granular Activated Charcoal. The simple in-line filter most folks have will do just fine. https://www.epa.gov/sciencematters/r...t-technologies

By the end of this year, a maximum contaminant level (MCL) should be established by the EPA for PFOS and PFOA. Once that MCL is set and municipalities will be required to comply with that MCL, then you can worry away if PFOS and PFOA are in your water. https://www.epa.gov/newsreleases/epa...as-action-plan

For all the other folks who have the access to DOD Campgrounds, please continue to patronize.

Yep, we will. We drink bottled water anyway.

Tim,
I didn't elude to anything that I am aware of when I posted the link. The link speaks for itself and is from Military Times. It does say that the foaming agents have contaminated ground waters in and around the bases. In my mind, that means the city water too would be affected. I don't put blind trust in Navy engineers to tell me if anything is safe or not. In the past they OK'ed the use of asbestos on all ships till a hell of a lot of us passed away from asbestos related cancers. That only took them about 100 years to get rid of that stuff. How about the use of Agent Orange? 50 years later we are still dying from it. That was approved for us to use too! Now it's the water that the military and their families are drinking and using to wash their dishes etc. while living on base and surrounding areas. They go on to further state that there are over 400 sites the government has to clean up just for this latest mess. It doesn't sound like a simple charcoal filter fix to me.

The Army Campground in Seward Alaska is very nice.

The RV parking is a little tight, but usually very good neighbors. Facilities are top-notch. I recommend adding the 4-star plus list.
