I rated this book a five as it saved me a whole bunch of $$ on my first RV trip. I used the book in conjunction with the recreation.gov website. The combination of the two enabled me to make a trip halfway across the US staying at excellent campgrounds, off the beaten path and at very reasonable prices. This book more than paid for itself with its first use.
As opposed to private campgrounds, these COE sites are generally spacious, private, and not located by highways and train tracks.

Great book that shows all the locations of Corp camping parks with contact info. Very complete. If you are camping near the border of one state besure to check the neighboring state for close Corp camgrounds as well, because there is not an overall USA locator map.

This book is okay, but not very useful, if you are traveling in the Midwest or most northern states. It seems there are few Corps Campgrounds available in northern and Midwest areas, with some states having none, some 1 or 2. If, however, you travel down south, there are many choices for camping. States listed in the book and their number of Corps locations (many having multiple campgrounds listed at each location (such as north campground/south campground), are as follows: Alabama-10, Arkansas-19, California-12, Connecticut-1, Florida-2, Georgia-8, Idaho-2, Illinois-4, Iowa-5, Kansas-14, Kentucky-10, Louisiana-1, Maryland-1, Massachusetts-1, Minnesota-5, Mississippi-6, Missouri-10, Montana-2, Nebraska-2, New Mexico-2, North Carolina-1, North Dakota-3, Ohio-1, Oklahoma-21, Oregon-5, Pennsylvania-9, South Carolina-2, South Dakota-3, Tennessee-6, Texas-22, Vermont-1, Virginia-3, Washington-6, West Virginia-6, Wisconsin-3. That's all! If a state is not listed here, it has no Corps locations with camping. Many of the campground locations will have only a few sites available. Many of the Corps locations seem to be clustered closely together, leaving large parts of a state with no campground. If you are traveling to an area that contains many choices, this book is for you. However, the places we were traveling to have no campgrounds in the state or anywhere close. I wish I would have known the states covered, before I ordered. The information contained in the book about each location is detailed. I don't know how accurate it is, since unfortunately for us, there are no locations near to our travels. There is a US map in the back of the book, but it merely shows the locations of each state and state capital, not the Corps locations. I wish it did. Hope you find this helpful!

Great resource if you are traveling to unknown places. Corp Campgrounds are described and we find they have great value. Usually near water and always have some interesting 'history' surrounding them. Especially valuable for "Seniors" with the Golden Age Passport.

I purchased this book to be used in our travels around the country. My husband and I are retired, and in our travels we live and camp in our Fifth-Wheel. This book is very informative, and gives the location, description, as well as much more information about our Nations Campgrounds built and established by National Corp. of Engineers.

This book identifies the campgrounds managed by the Corps of Engineers in the US. It is a thorough overview with decent descriptions of the campground amenities. You must understand that Corps of Engineer campgrounds are only on Corps managed reservoirs or waterways. It lacks maps and campground drawings.
