Located on military bases, military campgrounds provide an option for many RVers who want to camp in beautiful areas, but prefer not to pay the prices asked for by private facilities. Military campgrounds are restricted to career and retired military, disabled veterans, Department of Defense workers, and various others connected to active service and their guests. Unfortunately, the average soldier who served a short enlistment is not allowed to use the facilities unless invited as a guest. Each campground has slightly different criteria so always check first before you go.
How do you find military campgrounds? U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks is one source. Another is Paths Across America, part of the Army MWR site. You can subscribe to RV Camping and Outdoor Recreation™ Around the World as well.

I have always wanted to camp on the beach at Camp Pendleton, just north of Oceanside, California. I've driven by there for years. I'll have to make a military friend, I guess! Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
