Many do. In fact, one of my favorite parks: USA RV Park has an active military stay free policy. Veterans get a 10% discount.

It looks like our Military guy will be doing the first "trip" in our new Squarestream. He comes home the end of September from a year in S. Korea. He wants to put the camper on the lake for a few weeks. (Only about 8 miles!)

It is a US Army Corps of Engineers park. Does anyone know if they offer discounts to active military?

I do not know however you might be able to find out by going to Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov. There customer service number is 877 833 6777. I make all of my federal camping reservation, Nat parks, COE etc through them. He may want to check out the Army MWR "Path Across America" web page. It will show the military camp sites in Georgia. Also try the AF MWR page

Thanks, John. We actually went by one of the USACE parks this afternoon. It's pretty close to us and on Lake Lanier. We asked about a discount for active military and were informed that he could actually stay FREE!! As long as he is on leave and shows his leave papers, there is no charge. Sounds good to me. The only "catch" is that you cannot make reservations online. You must go in person. The attendents were really great and did the reservation for us in his name. When we check in, he just has to show his papers and "Ouila!" Free stay. Really nice sites too. We stayed there when the boys were in elementary school.

That great that he can stay there free. I guess it just us retired folks that have to pay but then again I am old enough for the Golden Age Pass.

Make sure you tell your son to stay safe.

Thanks, everyone for your thanks and thoughts for our son. It has been quite an experience for us as we haven't had anyone in the military since WWII! We can't wait for him to come home and we are really excited to "break-in" the new-to-us Argosy!

Thank you, too, rbr, for your wife's service and your sacrifice.

urnmor - the campground at Shady Grove in Cumming gives a senior discount of 10%. Better than nothing and it's a really nice area.

AF Four Cliff Recreation Area

My wife and I stayed at the AF Four Cliff Recreation area in Humarock MA. It is located on the mouth of the North River and MA Bay. We rented a house there but noted that there were a number of RV hook ups that included electric, water and sewage. It did not have fire rings but campfires were allowed on the beach. The views were breath taking from all of the sights. Next time we go we will take our AS.

Hello everyone! Great thread- I'm currently demobing from Iraq and will be headed to Ft. Rucker to start flight school in October. As I do not currently own an airstream (though I really want one) I'd appreciate any links/help with finding a used unit- my plan is to stay in said trailer for the duration of flight school. All help is welcome!! Thanks and god bless!

Sid

Welcome Aboard....

FIRST......Thank You

I'd start with our classified section here.
Check out the Rally schedule, if there's one in your area it's worth a visit, helpful folks and a great opportunity to learn.

Semper-fi

Glad I looked

I am glad that I looked at this group. My sonny boy is Recon Marine currently stationed in Okinawa and looks like he will be combat replacement at the end of the month to Afghanistan. I was always thinking as he hit his training sites it would be fun to go and see him there if it were feasible. He just got done with jump school in Georgia, but no way would I go there in June!!!!!!!
His loverly 70 Chevy truck just got a good ding from my hubby heading out to hunt and it and Tin Hut had a collision. It looks like the truck got the worst of it. Hubby said don't tell sonny, he will get it fixed.
So depending on where my boy goes, will tap this group to see what is available in whatever place he may be.

Army MWR Path Across America

I have been trying to access the Army's site "Path Across America" however I am being told that both Yahoo and Mozilla cannot find the Server. Has any one else experienced a similar problem?
