UPDATE Edwards AFB FamCamp is indeed closed with no further word on when it might open back up. Apparently the base is closed to all who don't work there.

Maybe we need a "Campgrounds OPEN" list. LOL

I thought the same thing, but this list is already going. This list started with only a dozen closed military campgrounds, but grew quickly.

Basically, just consider all military campgrounds closed to new campers.

Hi there, in regards to "they may extend you on a case to case basis." Was there a waver or extension form that folks filled out. Thank you in advance for any info you may have. We are in a similar position where we know of 1 person at our site that received a waiver for 180 days. Everyone has been asked to leave (this place is almost empty) without even knowing anything about this waiver. The camp director walked to each RV and notified each one of them when they had to leave. We must be invisible for he has never said 1 word to us. I do not want to be thrown out in this very bad situation. So waiver for extension information is needed. Again thank you and stay safe. Respectfully, Cee Cee

Be Great!!!!

I'm sure the process varies at each location. Perhaps check with the person who was granted a waiver on how they did it.

Thanks Larry. I'm hoping that these facilities will reopen soon. With respect to the social distancing goal, I'm not sure how closing military campgrounds is helpful. Not many business models can so easily accommodate the distancing rules. Reserve by phone or online, pay the same way, pickup your paperwork on the way in, and use safe distancing during your stay. Closures seem like an over reaction to me.

Not singling this poster I'm quoting out, folks, but.

The health and well being of the active duty forces must come first. Removing transient vectors for the Covid virus is their main priority. Your ability to spend leisure time on a base is not mission critical. As you're using the facilities as a military retiree, you surely must understand that?

MWR Morale, Welfare and Recreation 1. Clear move-out procedures and responsibilities, with time and notice to prepare, inspections, paperwork, and other considerations.
2. Reasonable advanced notice if terminating or extending stay in writing with clear reason and without preference.
3. Predictable monetary terms through a clearly defined written agreement.

Yesterday I was told by POC and I quote the first and only thing POC said, " You have until Sunday or I will have you escorted out." HHMMM rude yes but he is not my issue. POC charged my credit card on April 13th for another 14-day stay. In hindsight, I should have asked POC if that was his way of letting the last 2 clients know the termination date, April 26th and if yes, asked for the "Extension" in written form.
I believe with 1, 2 and 3 listed above, all ambiguities, insecurities, and safety would be lessened. That would Increase the Readiness of our Military instead of lowering Morale & Welfare, especially in this dire moment when we all are trying to remain alive.

Status of the Seabreeze Naval Weapons Station: temp closed
One of the base commanders that live in RV park will be staying.

I am the camp host at Fiddler's Cove RV Park (Coronado, CA). We went on lockdown on Friday, March 20, 2020. Retirees who were in the park, at that time, were permitted to complete their prepaid reservations, but they could not renew. Active duty patrons, who were in the park at that time, were permitted to remain in the park until at least June 1, 2020. No new active duty patrons have been admitted into the park since that time. All reservations up through May 31, 2020 were cancelled. Reservations for stays beginning on June 1, 2020, are currently still "on the books", but there is no guarantee that we will reopen on June 1, 2020.

"One of the base commanders that live in RV park will be staying." And as usually the case the active duty people will remain. (Just an opinion but I'm sure a few of the commanders buddies will be allowed to stay too.) Not trying to cause trouble just know how it goes.

All Active military were told they could stay and were teleworking but out of the blue, they were given 2-4 days to leave. 1 week later with just 1 of the base commanders still in the park, I felt comfortable that we would be staying. Foolish on my part. I will say that the Seal Beach MWR is excellent. It was all the awesome retirees that waved to us every morning. It was the respect that everyone showed each other with social distancing and masks. We hope to spend more time there in the future.

Be Great!!!!

Sorry been awhile since my last post. I checked with the two military CG's in my area. Hanscom AFB in MA is still closed and extended from May 1st to after May 18th. Not sure on Great Pond ME, but I believe they are looking at reopening around the same time.

Camp Blanding, National Guard Training Center in Starke, FL is closed. "Camp Sites for RVs will be opened for existing reservations only. There are no new reservations via the Recreation Department until further notice."

Our reservation for next week at Pelican Roost, Mayport FL, was officially cancelled today.

While extremely disappointed, the safety of those who are actively protecting our country and values is more important to us than a discretionary trip.

On a good note we were able to make reservations at Maxwell Gunter famcamp for Monday 11 May. We usually stay at Maxwell, Arnold, Camp Carlson and Wright Patterson on our way back from Florida, I have a really bad back and can only drive for a few hours a day. The only one taking reservations was Maxwell and they just started today. Here at Oak Grove Park NAS Pensacola they are not taking new reservations until 01 June. My reservation is up 11 May and we are being told we have to be out, period. They did extend us 2 weeks the first time but not this time for some reason and not a lot has changed so I guess we'll figure it out, at least we have Maxwell and I think some states are starting to open up commercial campgrounds to.
