Has any one camp at any of the corps of engineers parks and what do you think of them. I want to try they out when we start full timing.

We have stayed at several in Texas and really liked them. The ones we stayed at didn't have sewer hook-up.

There are a few in Alabama that are fantastic! I've stayed in the one called "gunter hill" near Montgomery many times and I hear they just redid one side with great private sites. Plan on going there again soon. Also near lake Eufala there are a couple that will impress you.

If you try one I am sure you will love it. Not only that but if you are a senior and purchase a pass for life you camp for about 1/2 price. I use several in TN & Alabama and I would rather stay in them then anywhere else. Only problem they are starting to get popular and you need to make reservations weeks in advance.

I've stayed at several Corps campground. Liked they so well I bought a directory of them and try to stay there when we can. The only bad thing is some fill up too soon and we can't get in.

I will spend some time in one come spring (Again) 50 amp, and all the water I can drink/use, no sewer hookup though so mid-week I have to head to the dump station.

Since my wife has a golden age pass they are only 11/night, Very cheap. And it's a beautiful park too. We enjoy it.
Home is where I park it!

Corps of Engineer parks are probably one of the best values in reasonable priced camping. Even without one of the Federal passes that gives a 50% discount, still resonable. Most are on or near water for great views, usually well spaced for privacy, and most are easy access.

There are three minor drawbacks.
1. Very few have sewer hookups, but always have good dump stations.
2. Because of current economics, a lot of them either close or severly limit spaces available after mid fall thru mid spring.
3. Since they are primarily located on either navigatable or flood control waterways, they become real scarce once you get west of the Mississippi River drainage area.

Even so, we stay at them as often as we can.
