Actually, there are quite a few here that served and qualify (retired, disabled) to use military campgrounds. Sometimes they even let an old draftee in if a spot is available and you ask politely (Sgt. US Army 69-70).

Adrian, thanks for posting, the pics bring back a few welcome memories. I spent time a bit south of there (Ft Huachuca) and often drove up to DM - the flyboys had much better PX's than us grunts

I appreciate all your input and doubt there's anyone more knowledgeable and willing to share their southwest experience on this or any other board - Thanks.

Great pictures. Better in person I'm sure. The southwest is so very different than New England. I always enjoy seeing it. No matter where we camp we always walk the dog after supper and tour the campground to see the different rigs. Thanks for sharing, Raz

According to the Veterans Administration, only about 13% all of male Americans, and less than 2% of female Americans, have served in active and reserve components of the military. That said, I think that the term "quite a few" may be a misnomer.

Being a veteran myself, (Navy, 1961-64) I have inquired in the past about making use of a number of military camping facilities and have been politely and rightly informed that they only have sufficient space to make them available to active duty, service disabled, and retired personnel.

Seeing it fair that only members of this group have access to this benefit, saying that they are "not available" to others, is an accurate statement and is as it should be.....

Don't want this forum to become a sticky forum, but former fiberglass owners who share their knowledge are always welcome to me.

Military campgrounds

We met a couple from Nova Scotia at Ft. Pickens last March. He is a retired Canadian Air Force pilot, and after a week or so at Ft. Pickens, they moved to one of the military campgrounds outside of Pensacola. Not only admitted, but paid the military rate of $13/day as well. So maybe some are stricter in controlling access, or filled up, some are less so.

I do not qualify, but that perk is one that I really do not mind supporting out of my taxes.

Really started wanting a wider bed, one of the only negative aspects we found with our Scamp.

The aluminum frame & fiberglass construction plus the quality of construction of the Lance, as well as not being too large of a unit (compare to many TT on the market) & it being somewhat lighter than many of the other trailers the same size, we are happy with it.

I've always liked this forum & have found most folks friendly & liked to keep in contact with the people on here. Time will tell.
Our first grand kid just turned seven months and the parents have promised she can go camping with us after her first birthday. Plus, I don't know how many more years we can continue to make that climb into our fiver's upper berth so I appreciate any input on viable options.

Although we live in NC and will likely never make a permanent move, we both love the southwest and visit as often as possible. Your posts on the camping opportunities and natural attractions in this area have been invaluable when planning many of our trips.

Hopefully, you'll continue to share those experiences here and maybe we can enjoy a campfire together on one of our trips.
