It might be good to point out that guests of military retirees are also allowed at some of these facilities. I camped with a friend (retired Army major) at Fort Fisher, NC, and was given the same nightly rate that he enjoyed. Perhaps all the military campgrounds aren't like this, but we were made to feel very welcome at that particular campground, which is at the beach. Of course, we couldn't have camped there unless our host was also camping at the same time.
Retired military deserve the facilities like this, and we felt honored to be there as guests.
All of you military guys already know this, but I was surprised to see that the little store at this campground was selling liquor on Sunday in North Carolina. My friend was quick to point out that, for all practical purposes, I was no longer in North Carolina, where we have very archaic alcohol laws.
