Government Parks

Government Campgrounds

Government parks, which include State and National Parks, Bureau of Land Management, State and National Forests, etc, have the advantage of being located in the most scenic areas in the country. However, the quality and price can vary greatly. And some can also be quite crowded, especially in peak season. Despite this, most of these parks are treasures, and we’re grateful to have them. We especially enjoy campgrounds built by the Corps of Engineers.

Below is a list of the government campgrounds we’ve stayed in since going full-time, listed in reverse chronological order. Or you can click on the link to see just Corps of Engineers campgrounds.


Pocahontas State Park - Chesterfield VA

RATING: ♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 6 days
  • Cost per night: $37.50
  • Discount: None
  • Hook ups: 50 amp electric, water, but no sewer.
  • Site number/quality: #87. Gravel pad. Very level. Gravel seating area. Thickly wooded, but site was cleared. Easy parking. Our site is the newer “End Loop”, and was quite large. Quiet and fairly secluded.

There is also a small museum about the CCC, Civilian Conservation Corps, which originally built the park during the Depression. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy most of the time we were here, so we weren’t able to enjoy the park as much as we had hoped. Becky took a day to drive into Richmond and take some pictures along the Canal Walk.

Delaware State Park - Delaware OH

RATING: ♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 7 days
  • Cost of stay: $160
  • Discount: None
  • Hook ups: 50 amp electric, no water or and sewer
  • Site number/quality: #24, level paved pad, surrounded by a large grass/muddy area, and shaded by densewoodlands all around. Many of the other sites were grassier, less shaded, and therefore less muddy.
  • Park quality: This is a nice park. Very large, 1,686 acres. The campground has four sections. Each section has a hub with five spokes leading out from the hub. Each spike ends in a cul-de-sac leading to about ten sites. Each hub has a shower house. All together the park has 211 sites. This unique layout provides a lot of space between sites.The park is located next toDelaware Lake, which was created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control on the Olentangy River, which is upstream from Columbus. The lake is heavily used by boaters and fishermen. There is also a nice sandy beach inside the park, which is a short drive from the campground areas. There are many pleasant walking trails winding in and out of the woods along the lake. One major oversight is the total lack of bike paths.
  • Access: Easy access right off US 23 north of Columbus.
  • Connectivity: Verizon strong, Cricket/AT&T strong with antenna, T-Mobile strong
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: We took a day trip to Columbus, which is just 35 miles away. Had a great meal at Schmidt’s Sausage Haus in German Village.

Prophetstown State Park - West Lafayette IN

RATING: ♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 3 days
  • Cost of stay: $122
  • Discount: None
  • Hook ups: 50 Amp Electric, water, and sewer
  • Site number/quality: #151, level gravel pad, surrounding grass area, small shade trees nearby.
  • Park quality: Prophetstown is Indiana’s newest state park, established in 2004. There are two main campground areas, one has full hookups and the other only has electric. The park is located at the confluence of the Tippecanoe and Wabash Rivers. In addition to the campground, there is a working historic farm and a kid friendly aquatic center in the park. There are many pleasant walking trails winding in and out of the woods along the banks of the rivers. There are also miles of paved bike paths throughout the campground and park. One of the nicest parks we’ve been to for biking.
  • Access: Easy though circuitous access from I-65.
  • Connectivity: Verizon strong, Cricket/AT&T OK with antenna, T-Mobile none
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: Prophetstown State Park is located next to the site of the Battle of Tippecanoe, which was fought on November 7, 1811, between American forces led by Governor William Henry Harrison of the Indiana Territory and Native American warriors associated with the Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa (commonly known as “The Prophet”). Tecumseh was an ally of the British, and together they were trying to keep the Americans from expanding into the Northwest Territory following the American Revolution. When the opposing sides met, Tecumseh was out of the area, and the Native Americans were led by the Prophet. Though the outcome of the battle was not decisive, Harrison claimed victory. He went on to become a popular public figure and eventually won the U.S. presidency. The Battle of Tippecanoe was a contributing factor leading to the War of 1812 with Britain. We found Prophetstown especially interesting because our former hometown, Perrysburg OH, is also the site of a similar battle fought by the Americans led by Harrison against the British army and Tecumseh’s Confederacy at Fort Meigs during the War of 1812. One of the bike paths led to a monument commemorating the tribes who were part of the Confederacy, including the Winnebago, which is the name of the company who made our motorhome.

  • Connectivity: Verizon OK, Cricket/AT&T strong, T-Mobile OK
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: No campers in our area, had the place to ourselves except for wild turkeys and other birds. The park reminded us of Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio. Hilly with caves and lots of trees, really nice. One odd thing is that there wasn’t anyplace to check in when we arrived at the park. I called the ranger and was told to just set up on the site we had reserved online. We did see workers (mowers, etc) in the park, so I assumed somebody saw that we were there.

Gunter Hill Campground (COE) - Montgomery AL

RATING: ♦♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 4 days
  • Cost of stay: $52
  • Discount: National Senior Pass
  • Hook ups: 50 Amp Electric, water, and sewer
  • Site number/quality: #37, large and level concrete pad, gravel site with large picnic table, view of river thru the trees
  • Park quality: really nice park, paved roads in park (good for bike riding and walking), natural setting on the Alabama River. The campground has 142 sites. There are two sections: the Antioch Loop, which is older and has gravel sites without sewer, and the Catoma Loop, which is newly renovated and has concrete pads and sewer. We stayed in the Catoma Loop section.
  • Access: Not easy, 11 miles off I-65 & I-85, down county roads and city streets, including a final stretch thru a residential area. Once inside the campground, the roads are fine.
  • Connectivity: Strong Cricket/AT&T and T-Mobile, weak Verizon
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: Park is situated along Catoma Creek where it joins the Alabama River. The R.F. Henry Lock and Dam is a few miles downstream, and backs up the river into a series of small lakes upstream to Montgomery. The river is navigable from Montgomery all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico at Mobile. The park is about 15 minutes from downtown Montgomery. We have driven through Montgomery a couple of times, but this time we decided to explore a bit. The downtown area is nice, especially the Visitor’s Center and adjacent river walk. There is a walking tour that takes you to several sites and museums around downtown, most associated with the civil rights movement. The temperature was in the 90’s during our visit here, too hot to walk. We wanted to take a river cruise, but it was booked up for the next couple of weeks. We also wanted to tour the Hyundai manufacturing facility, but it was booked up for the next couple of months! I (Becky) need to get on the ball and plan a little better.

Eastbank Campground (COE) - Bainbridge GA

RATING: ♦♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 4 days
  • Cost of stay: $48
  • Discount: National Senior Pass
  • Hook ups: Electric and water w/dump station
  • Site number/quality: #29, large and level concrete pad, gravel site with large picnic table, view of lake and dam (across the street from the site)
  • Park quality: very nice small park, paved roads in park (good for bike riding and walking), no swimming pool or recreational amenities, natural setting on Lake Seminole, beautiful natural setting with great sunsets
  • Access: Easy, off U.S. 90, 1.5 miles north of Chattahoochee FL
  • Connectivity: Strong Cricket/AT&T, weak Verizon, and no T-Mobile
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: Park is situated along Lake Seminole, which is a man-made reservoir impounding the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers for 35 miles. The park is actually in Georgia, just across the state line from Florida. It was hard to keep track of the time because FL is in the Eastern time zone and Georgia is in Central. Whenever we left the park, we would be in Eastern time, and when we got back, we’d be in Central. Another challenge was the sugar ants. The park ranger warned us about them, and she wasn’t kidding. But all-in-all, it was a fun stay. We met up with a couple that we had camped next to at Stephen Foster State Park and hung out with them quite a lot. We went to dinner with them at a quirky little gourmet restaurant, Rutabaga Cafe

  • Site number/quality: #7 – Huge gravel site with a jungle vibe, lots of greenery between sites. Site is level and angled, easy to park.

  • Return? Yes
  • Notes: The Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center is part of the park. We had a nice time here, even though it was very hot (90 degrees +) and dry. There were a lot of song birds singing from early morning to evening, so beautiful! We weren’t bothered by mosquitoes at all, but gnats were bad.

Ortona Locks South (COE) – Moore Haven FL

  • Notes: The campground is in a secluded setting along the Caloosahatchee River, but it is only 15 minutes from the town of Labelle where there are restaurants, gas stations, Walmart and other shopping. The park has paved roads, nice for walking or bike riding. There are no planned activities or swimming pool, but we enjoyed watching boats pass through the locks on their way along the Okeechobee Waterway. We also spotted a family of otters, many bird species and turtles, and a large alligator in the river below the dam. We enjoyed Easter weekend with Jennifer and the grandkids, who live about a half hour from the park.

Salt Springs Recreation Area - Fort McCoy FL

Rating: ♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 14 days
  • Cost of stay: $292.00
  • Discount: FL Senior
  • Hook ups: Electric 50amp, water, sewer
  • Site number/quality: #85 for 5 nights, then moved to #20. Both were large and level, and all sites are on paved parking area with grassy yard, but #20 was larger and quieter, back further in the campground., and it was perfectly situated with morning sun plus a shade tree for afternoon.
  • Park quality: So rare to have full hookups at a state park, big plus for that. You can walk, ride a bike, or drive to the springs which are in a beautiful woodsy area with paved stairs down into the water. The water is a constant 72 degrees, refreshing, clear and clean. Bring your goggles to watch the fish and your rubber raft to bob around as you sunbath.
  • Mail: Mail, UPS, and FedEx all received at the ranger station
  • Access: Far off the beaten path, about 15 miles on a narrow two-lane road, but the road is in good shape so not too bad
  • Connectivity: Virtually none, sometimes a little Verizon at your site, and sometimes a little wifi up at the ranger station
  • Return yes/no?: It’s not along the way to anyplace else, so probably wouldn’t make another special trip to this park, as much as we liked it. 🙁
  • Notes: Loved this park, but it is about 30 minutes to a decent grocery store, and it is hard to go without a cell connection for more than a couple of days. It is about an hour to the Atlantic coast. We took a day trip to St Augustine.

Park is about half hour from their home, and is very well situated for site-seeing, shopping, and activities in and around Myrtle Beach. Took in a regretable Elvis show, visited Huntington Beach State Park and Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, and flew out to visit Steve one last time.

  • Site number/quality: Site 22, long pull-thru, level enough, private and woodsy, close to hiking trail

  • Cost of stay: $243
  • Discount: none
  • Hook ups: Electric only, w/dump

  • Notes: We ended up extending our stay by a few days because we liked the park and bad weather was predicted in the days ahead. Made a visit to the old Cambridge glass factory.

RATING: ♦♦♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 31 days
  • Cost of stay: $620
  • Discount: Passport America
  • Hook ups: Electric 30amp only, with available water and dump
  • Site number/quality: Couple different sites, don’t remember the numbers, but all sites in the campground are great except for the few that had trees cut down due to ash borer. Those sites are fine, but not much shade.
  • Notes: Moved Mom from her cottage home to the big house during this stay. Park management accommodated our situation and agreed to extend our stay past the 14 day limit, especially since our extended time was past Labor Day. Revisited the Toledo Zoo. It is a treasure. It’s easy to under appreciate home town attractions. Also went to the German-America Festival, another great home town attraction, and the next day had lunch with family at the Mon Ami Winery on Catawba Island.

Fishermans Island State Park - Charlevoix MI

  • Length of stay: 5 days
  • Cost of stay: $73.00
  • Discount: none
  • Hook ups: boondocking, no services
  • Site number/quality: #21, site was really a bit too tight for our 40′ moho, but we managed to get backed in with the help of a neighbor. Site was secluded and very woodsy and sandy, was level enough.
  • Park quality: Park was exactly as described, with rolling dunes covered with maple, birch, and aspen, broken up by bogs of cedar and black spruce. The park is large, with 5 miles of unspoiled Lake Michigan shoreline. The campground is rustic, but clean and well managed. The beach is great!
  • Access: Easy access, on US 31, just south of Charlevoix
  • Connectivity: Verizon ok
  • Return yes/no?: No, but only because our motorhome is too big, despite what they say.
  • Notes: Charlevoix is just down the road from the park, and Petosky is a short drive northeast on US 31. Other small towns in the area are worth the drive. Beautiful area. We spent a lot of time in Charlevoix, and took a day trip through the Tunnel of Trees to Legs Restaurant in Cross Village.

  • Discount: no discount, and need to buy MI vehicle pass
  • Hook ups: Electric 50amp and water, no sewer but convenient dump station
  • Site number/quality: Don’t exactly remember, but by looking at the map, I believe it was #23 or #25. The site was large and level, with shade and a few shrubs between us and our neighbor. The site was grass and dirt. We were on the edge of the park, with nobody behind us.
  • Park quality: The park is huge, with miles of paved bike trails that go to the beach and thru the wetlands and into town. The park roads are paved. Lots of families camping when we were there. Great spot! The sandy beach is nice, but the water had too much algae for swimming.
  • Access: Easy access, a short drive off I-75
  • Connectivity: Verizon ok
  • Return yes/no?: Yes
  • Notes: Came back to see the Tall Ships Celebration that toured the Great Lakes and anchored at Bay City a week after we left.

  • Park quality: Wonderful large park, all sites are paved, and most have trees or bushes to separate you from your neighbors. The park is clean and appears to be well managed. There are hiking and bike trails throughout. The park is on the shallow end of Lake Erie, so the water is not good for swimming but is nice to walk along. The lodge has a very nice restaurant. Park is very quiet overall, but be prepared to wake early to song birds singing like they know the score!

  • Access: Easy access off Rt 2
  • Connectivity: Accepable Cricket AT&T and T-Mobile

RATING: ♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 3 days
  • Cost of stay: $84.00
  • Discount: none
  • Hook ups:
  • Site number/quality: Site was small and tight with low hanging tree branches, probably too small for our moho. Too sandy (of course, close to the gulf coast) live and learn

  • Access: Good roads to the park
  • Connectivity: Verizon ok
  • Return yes/no?: Probably not, wasn’t a good experience, no fault of the park, but was so wet and sandy during our stay, a mess.
  • Notes: Stayed here while changing domicile to Florida from Ohio, and started the process of our becoming full-time nomads.
