Authorized Users of Military Campgrounds +I've received many inquires asking "... am I allowed to use US Military Campgrounds?" These are usually from veterans who served a few years and have an honorable discharge. Sometimes it's from a retired civil service employee who worked for the Army, Navy, or USAF for 30+ years. And some of the inquires are from veterans who are 100% disabled. There's also been a lot of discussion on the various news groups about the 100% DAV authorized use issue. I attempted to do a little research and clear all of these issues up. The following are my findings. In a… Read More

The Search for "Secret" Military Campgrounds +We're always on the search for "secret" military campgrounds. No, not highly classified campgrounds, rather military campgrounds that aren't advertised or well known. The various military services don't do a good job of advertising their own campgrounds. We've found military campgrounds that aren't even advertised on their own website. For some reason, these campgrounds are a "secret" to most people. Read More

Great News! The USCG Cape Cod MWR RV Park just opened!
A website user notified me of a new RV Park at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station at Cape Cod, MA. This new RV Park just opened July 15th and is located at the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR), Buzzards Bay, MA. It caught us by surpirse, as we weren't even aware it was being built. This small RV Park has 5 full hook-up sites for $25 a night. Currently, not tents or pop-ups are allowed - only hard sided RV's. Reservations are also required.
While I have most of the information listed on the website, please let me know of any corrections or additional information. I also only have the location of the check-in to the RV Park (Temporary Housting), but don't know the exact GPS coordinates of the RV Park. If you find them, please share them with us. Thanks Raymond for helping us provide the most CURRENT and COMPLETE information available on our U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks.

Beautiful State Park like surroundings..... but not made for larger RV units. There is a remote piece of heaven nestled between the trees at Arnold Air Force Base at Tullahoma, Tennessee. Located on Dogwood Ridge, this Fam Camp is somewhat primitive camping but the views of the lake and the sounds of nature all around make up its lacking of a few of the amenities some of us have come to expect at a military Fam Camps. There are no fancy paved streets to walk your dog. Nor are there security lights on every corner, nor is there a fancy laundry facility across from the clubhouse. There is no sewage at your camp site, no wifi, or cable TV. But there is a wonderful view from your RV of a beautiful lake, and an abundance of wildlife in the area to enjoy. They do have 30 or 50 electric AMP hookups at each site. They do have a beautiful sandy beach area for anyone to enjoy an afternoon in the sun. There is a covered pavilion for that family cookout. For that fisherman in the family there are boat rentals, pontoon, ski boats, kayak, & canoes. There are boat docks and launching pads at your campsites. They do offer Tennessee fishing license at the office. Tent camping is welcome and they do provide everything you might need, from your sleeping bags to a lanterns to camp for the weekend. This little piece of heaven is just right for an active family who loves to be outdoors.
Arnold Air Force Base Fam Camp is a weekend retreat for those desiring to get away from the city. The Fam Camp is a no frills type of camping. Not suited for the long term camper or large oversized Class A units that might exceed 34ft. They do invite extended stays up to 3 months is available. These amenities are totally opposite of many of the better known, military Fam Camps. Maneuvering through this wilderness maze of trees isn’t an easy task. This camp isn’t a place for any unit larger than 34ft. Nor is it designed for an inexperience driver. If you’re ‘NOT’ an experience driver you can truly get caught between a ‘tree’ and a hard spot. There is no joke about this; the roads are covered with stone as are the campsites. There are narrow passages cut through the woods. It is one way in and one way out.
