Forest Service waives camping fees for those displaced by hurricane

By Russ and Tiña De Maris

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 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.

Russ and Tiña went from childhood tent camping to RVing in the 1980s when the ground got too hard. They've been tutored in the ways of RVing (and RV repair) by a series of rigs, from truck campers, to a fifth-wheel, and several travel trailers. In addition to writing scores of articles on RVing topics, they've also taught college classes for folks new to RVing. They authored the book, RV Boondocking Basics.
