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.
