Travel Under the Stars With
Advance Camping Reservations
enthusiasts who migrate to southern climes for the winter know how
to get the jump on temperate weather: Just drive to it. Now, even
as the leaves fall, you can get a jump on next summer: Just call
call is toll-free: 1-877-444-6777 (TDD: 1-877-833-6777).
The National Recreation Reservation Service provides advance
reservations for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and USDA National
Forest Service facilities nationwide. Splendid camping opportunities
abound whether your choice is a bustling lakeside or a tranquil
forest, or both.
But you might want to jump at the phone really soon. With the 240
day advance window on family sites and 360 day advance on group
sites, summer is here already for the savvy campers who wish to
claim the best sites. Want to book an arrival on the Friday of 4th
of July weekend? You can, starting November 4.
Of course, Memorial Day weekend 1999 is reservable already. So
too, are any facilities open during fall, winter and spring. The
Alaska cabins are proving very popular for the winter holidays.
The NRRS also creates new opportunities for RV trekking, providing
a nationwide network of outdoor accommodations that can be linked
together to suit any journey.
Heading south for the winter? Many Corps of Engineers locations
remain open year around, so you can book them back to back for a
southerly migration. Got an urge to go west? Follow the old pioneer
mountain trails, relaxing along the route in Forest Service campgrounds.
Want to navigate a river to the sea? Start near the Smoky Mountain
headwaters of the Chattahoochee or the Savannah Rivers with the
Forest Service as your host, then go with the flow, staying at the
fine lakeside campsites of the Corps.
You can even relocate your base camp from time to time within the
same general region. Hop around a cluster of Corps and Forest Service
campgrounds within and near the Ozarks, to refresh the scenery outside
your RV window.
And all this can be reserved and confirmed by phone, long before
your actual vagabond adventure. You can make up to four reservations
per toll free phone call, and pay by credit card for fast confirmation.
