We are having trouble accessing famcamps with < 100% DAV, even though my husband has a VA card that clearly says he has a service connected disability. Is anyone else seeing this issue?

I thought it was 100% DAV who could access famcamps, not < 100%.

Unless the law changed recently, military campgrounds are active duty, retired military, and 100% DAV. In some cases Department of Defense employees can use MCG on a limited basis, not sure what those rules are.

The law changed...

The Purple Heart and Disabled Veterans Equal Access Act of 2018 became law in August 2018 and took effect on January 1st, 2020. This bill will now allow the following veterans use of commissary and exchange stores, and MWR facilities (includes campgrounds):
  • Veterans Awarded the Purple Heart
  • Veterans Who Are Medal of Honor Recipients (already authorized)
  • Veterans Who Are Former Prisoners of War
  • Veterans With Service-Connected Disabilities (0 - 100%)
  • Caregivers of Veterans

For more details on this new eligibility, please look at these articles:
