The U.S. Forest Service says it will waive campground fees throughout the Southern Region of the U.S. for those displaced by Hurricane Dorian. Those needing accommodation should pick a National Forest, then call or check online to see if any of the campgrounds in the Forest are closed.
Next, call the campground or check on recreation.gov for available spaces. Once on site, check in with the campground host to let them know you’re been displaced by the hurricane, and fees will be waived.
The Southern Region includes Kentucky, Virginia, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Keep in mind that some locations may be closed due to the hurricane.
