This is probably the best information you'll find on the WWW. Everything you need to know in one link including a nice forum.

Log-in, it's free. Ask larryf how to move around in the link. He has always owned and maintained it.

U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks - U.S. Military Campgrounds Discussion Forums - Category Index

Here is a sample of some of the military campgrounds/RV parks we have stayed at.

I usually use the link above. then try and review the CG's OWN page (if available). As with private CGs, some are better than others. Have only hit Camp Grayling (MI,), Pensacola (FL), New Orleans NAS (LA), Corpus Christi, Ft Sam & Dyess (TX) along with USAFA (Co) & Lake Alatoona, GA.. Tried Anniston AL (small facility w/ homesteading contractors). None were bad, but Alatoona & Graying were challenging to get a 36' TT backed into.. Dyess was almost like an open parking lot. Allstays Camp & RV (smart phone app) is good and will filter down to specific type CGs (Corp, DOD, private, etc) and use that when computer not available/connected. (TYPICALLY) can't beat their prices. AND. usually a 'long term' (week or more) can drop the price a bit more. To me, one of the best 'post service' perks out there! Try as many as you can!!

If you make it to the coast of NC the campground on Camp Lejuene is a great little place! Located on the inter-coastal waterway side of the barrier island the beach is less than a 5 minute walk across the street. Convenience store right next door, pet friendly (need record of rabies vaccination), and quiet! Unless of course the Marines are performing manuevers but then thats the sound of Freedom and that is a wonderful sound!!

To use military camp grounds do you need to be active military? retired military, or can family of retired or active military use them. My dad was a Marine 28 years , and brother was USCG 32 years, . Both have since passed. Just wondering if family can use them, I remember camping at some of them with my brother when he was active.

I may be wrong but I think you have to be active duty or retired to utilize the military campgrounds, most are on base so you need an ID Card to get entry. I may be wrong.
