I just signed up today and I'm kinda confused if i qualify to use these parks. I was in the Marine Corps from 1975 to 1979 and was honorable discharged. Does this work? Thanks

Welcome to the site and thank you for your service! However, it doesn't sound like you are eligible to utilize MWR facilities. Use of MWR facilities (includes campgrounds) is primarily for active duty, retired military, and 100% DAV. Although, there are a few other categories that are eligible. However, military campgrounds are not a benefit provided to the typical veteran.

This article includes copies of the applicable regulations:

Yes, your brother (retired Navy) can sponsor you in "most" military campgrounds. Some don't allow "guests". However, your brother will need to be staying in the same military campground with you (they can have their own RV).

Congratulations!

Now, we just need this pandemic to get under control and the campgrounds to open up again.
