The owner of Toutle River RV Park in Castle Rock, Washington, has initiated a policy of providing free camping for active-duty military personnel, and is urging other campgrounds to follow his lead.
“It is a very small way of saying, ‘Thank you’ for all the hard work and sacrifices men and women in the military make,” said owner Charlie Curry. He has established a website, tentsfortroops.org, to list campgrounds that offer at least two days of free camping to military personnel. Campground owners are invited to go to the website to add their campgrounds to the list.
Curry is hoping the website will become a resource for military personnel to find free camping throughout the country.
At the Toutle River RV Park, the free camping offer is subject to availability. Military personnel must call to reserve a campsite and must present their military ID on arrival.
