Google Earth and Corps of Engineers Parks

We’ve only stayed at one Corps of Engineers park that I remember, near Tupelo Mississippi.  We liked that park a lot, and we’ve talked to many people who stay at COE parks and also love them.  Always associated with water because of a Corps of Engineers dam project, many of these parks have electric hookups for RVs.  You can find all the information your need on the Corp’s Recreation website.

If you like to use Google Earth to research your destinations, there is a file you can download from their website that includes all the parks.  The video above will show you how to do it.

If you’ve stayed at a Corps of Engineers park how about leaving a comment and telling us about it?

    We’ve camped numerous times @ Ferrells Bridge Dam – Lake O’ The Pines, Jefferson, TX. It is wonderful. We’ve sat on a cement pad with hook-ups & were able to watch the boats & boaters on the lake.

    I stay at COE parks as much as possible. Most of them have E/W hookups, and a dump station. Bath houses are also available, and most have waterfront campsites. They honor the National Access (handicap) and Senior cards (not the real names, but being a senior I can’t remember….) and give you 1/2 off each night. Very nice parks and well-maintained. I prefer them over commercial campgrounds.
