    5 Top Rated Military RV Parks Across the U.S.

    One of the occupational hazards of military service is catching a case of wanderlust and spreading it to your family and friends. After you've seen unique places or explored unknown lands, it's hard to come home and ignore military travel benefits like FamCamps and RV parks. 

    Military campgrounds (FamCamps) and military RV parks have a die-hard following ranging from active duty families to veterans, retirees, and their civilian colleagues. Many sites allow most DOD ID card holders to make reservations, but policies are site-specific. Before planning an epic vacation or PCS pit stop, verify each location’s eligibility regulations and reservation restrictions. 

    These military RV campgrounds are near or on major military installations across the country, but if you’re interested in more options, download the Military FamCamp Campgrounds app to review more than 200 military campgrounds.
