Campgrounds around US with veteran's discount?
 


We are getting ready to fulltime in four months and my husband is a diabled veteran.  We get free camping here in WA state at state campgrounds.  I wondered if there is a National organization that provides discounts to veterans?

Check out http://www.militarycampgrounds.us/ for a list of military campgrounds. While not free most have good rates compared to private parks.

Thank you so much for this website!  It's awesome and just what we were looking for.  I spent hours looking at many of the campgrounds around the country.  We are soooo ready to retire and explore this beautiful country.

Get yourself an America the Beautiful Access card. It's available for those with a proven handicap (disability). It's free for life and will provide up to 50% discount on many federal campgrounds and free entrance to National Parks. State parks can, but usually don't provide the discount.

Check this site for information:   http://store.usgs.gov/pass/access.html

Louisiana is one of the few states that give 50% discount with the America the Beautiful Pass.

My husband will go tomorrow to see about the pass.  He has 30% disability documented by the VA.  None of the websites say what percentage of disability qualifies one for the pass.  So, we'll see.

Thank you all for your help!

This is great information.  My husband is a disabled veteran.  We were not aware of the Access Pass. 

thank you so much,

Carol

We learned something on a trip last year. If one of you is a veteran and/or disabled, ALWAYS ask when you check into any state or national park if there are discounts available. We stayed at a Tennessee State Park for $10 a night with full hook ups last year just because we asked. Otherwise we had no indication they offered a discount.

Yes, it never hurts to ask. Different states require different forms of proof. My home state of Illinois requires some form that proves disability had been determined by the state, which I haven't quite figured out yet. Missouri, my next door neighbor state, only requires a handicap parking placard or handicap license plate.
