Tents for Troops invites all RV parks and campgrounds to offer active military free camping.
"It is a very small way of saying 'Thank You' for all of the hard work and sacrifices men and women in the military make", said Toutle River RV Resort owner Charlie Curry. "I personally encourage all RV Parks and Campgrounds in America to consider offering free camping for active military!"
To become a member park you need only to donate two sites for two nights. You may black out any special events or festival times but may not exclude weekends other than holiday weekends. Blacking out holiday weekends is allowed.
Frequently Asked Questions
For Campgrounds & RV Parks wishing to become a member:
To become a member of Tents for Troops, you only have to commit 2 RV/camp sites to the program, and allow any active military to use one of the sites for two nights. Think '2 sites, 2 nights'. If you wish to dedicate more sites or additional nights of camping, you may. For example, you may choose to include 10 sites in the program and up to one week of camping. Tents for Troops is based upon availability and you may have black out dates. If your property is full you are under no obligation to provide Tents for Troops sites. You choose exactly how much you want to participate. Perhaps you want every space in the RV Park or campground to be open to active military for a full week! Or you might want to have only two sites open for the program. In any case, however few or many sites you wish to contribute, your generosity will be greatly appreciated, and we promise you that. You are under no obligation. If your property decides to no longer participate, please let us know and your listing will be promptly removed from the website. Otherwise, your listing will remain up until such a time that you notify us of any changes.
This program is intended for Active Military Personnel
Active military will be required to present active military I.D. at the time of check in. The offer is for active military and members of their immediate family only.
Please call the park directly for reservations. Reservations are required. Parks may be full and are not obligated to provide free sites in this case. Please be courteous to our member parks. If you enjoy your stay, consider blogging about it, posting an online review, and telling friends or family members about the program. And remember to tell the staff at the campground that you appreciate your stay! Also let us know at Tents for Troops how you liked your stay, we want to hear how the program is working and may post your comments on this site.
It is our hope to visit every family Friendly RV Park and Campground in the continental United States in hopes of getting them to join the Tents for Troops program. You may also find us at National Rally's and RV Shows of all sorts and sizes. Our plans also include visiting every Military Base & Coast Guard Station in the Country as well in an effort to spread the word to the Troops about T4T.
We are still working on our RV Loaner program and expect to have a pilot program going this year. This program will loan an RV out for free to any member of our Active Military whom may otherwise have no access to one. It is our goal to make an RV/Camping vacation available to all of our Troops. Someday we hope to even be able to pay for the gas. Volunteers are always needed. If you have some time and want to help please give us a call at 360-274-7915 or cell 503-425-9105
