This informative guidebook lists all campgrounds in the United States built and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including summer and winter campground sites. Especially valuable for RV travelers and campers who are boaters and fishermen, the book includes all campsites with fishing and boating access located on or near lakes or streams managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps is renowned for keeping well-maintained sites, with inexpensive fees. Many of the campsites listed are in beautiful, little-known locations, too.
Individual campground listings contain complete details about camping facilities, amenities, recreational activities available, RV park information, GPS and longitude/latitude information for each lake, and complete, easy-to-follow directions to get to each campground – which can be handy when traveling where internet signals can be difficult to receive. Concise overviews of the Corps of Engineers’ projects at many sites are included for those curious about the works at many parks.
I have found nothing on this downloaded ebook that is not free on The Corp of Engineers website that can be accessed online or by smart phone. I expected much more from a $10 + tax Kindle book.
Bought this for use while traveling in our travel trailer when we’re without WiFi or cell reception. Isn’t complete as we find campgrounds not included in the book. No pictures.
I live in Florida and this book really came in Handy because it covers all the states and gives some great locations for RV and trailer/tent camping, boating and fishing. The book didn’t cost much and it comes in handy when planning trips with my little StarCraft 15 single axle trailer. Amazon delivered it very quickly which helped my planning.
The government site online provides much more information. The older book I have on the same subject has 100 more pages and that much more information. The first campground I checked had the wrong information.
Like to camp at nice places for cheap? This is for you. We have the Interagency Senior Pass, so we get half off the already low prices for camping. Generally nice campgrounds as they are all associated with reservoirs.
Perfect compliment to my camping books. Everything you need to know about camping in areas that are virtually unknown to many.
