Corps Campground Shutdowns


We may have sold our RV but we think often about our friends still on the road. I just noticed this notice on the USACOE website:

WASHINGTON, DC — 3/20/2020

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announced today that it has begun the orderly shutdown of all USACE-managed campgrounds to protect against the further spread of coronavirus disease 2019. Visitor centers, beaches, special events, and USACE-sponsored events such as shore sweeps, interpretive programs, Kids to Parks Day, Earth Day events, public meetings and other public gatherings at all USACE-managed sites and facilities have also been closed and/or put on hold until further notice.

Individuals with paid camping reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Individuals should not contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.

USACE is maintaining access to its projects by keeping day-use facilities and lake access areas open such as boat launches, picnic areas, fishing piers, and viewing areas.  These areas are, however, subject to evolving conditions related to COVID-19 and decisions may have to be made locally to close specific areas.

For more information on the current status of USACE recreation area closures, we ask that you contact the USACE lake or river project before your visit. A complete list of recreation areas is available at www.CorpsLakes.us. The public’s patience and understanding during this unprecedented time is appreciated.
