I'M LOST, Befuddled !(Rec. Gov)

In our travels, as seniors, we like to stay at Army Corps of Engineers Camp Grounds. It's easy on the wallet for us. A Senior Pass.

The most I have ever been able to book is 14 days and that is rare. I am missing something when other RVr's book 28 days straight in the same site.

I have not had the courage (actually the guts) to ask, 'how do you do it' ?

I am missing something and do not know what it is.

Any ideas out there ????????? I thought 14 was the max and then out you go !

In many state parks the max is 14 days as well. I wonder if they book the next 2 weeks in a different name, such as a spouse or other relative to get around it.

CRABMAN: I have never been the brightest bulb in the pack, but you may have hit the answer. A couple may be able to book under 2 different accounts. That may be legal, but it seems somewhat unfair.

But if it is legal (not sure legal is the right word) that has to be OK. It is a part of the game of RVing.

Ya' learn sumthin' new every day'.

I have seen folks move to another site in 2 weeks. We have moved to another loop in the same campground and it felt like a new campground.

That's what I would do! Don't think I could even stay 2 weeks at the same site...

Again, not the brightest bulb in the pack!



Norty & Gone Campin and other intelligent peeeeples.

My interpretation of your response is ; I have an America The Beautiful Senior Pass (Federal). If my Bride of 49 years (yes, she is much older than me), well 2 years older. HUSH ! Don't let her know about this post.

If my Bride signed up for the same Old Timers government courtesy, we could in essence (I had to get the dictionary out for that word), book another 14 days in that park, without one of us going to the SLAMMER ! For you youngins', that means jail.

Starting to get out of the fog, Truly yours YIKES !

I would not go that far. I have the old Golden Age card which was the first version of what you mentioned. It saves a senior a ton but don't know if you can stay any longer.

These cards have a one time fee but it can save you a load of entrance and parking fees at most any federal facility.

I say if you have been married 49 years, you deserve to stay as long as you like
