GI Campers Select Best U.S. Military Campgrounds
The membership of the U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks website has selected Eagle Hammock RV Park, Kings Bay Navy Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Ga., as the Best Military Campground in 2009 for the Eastern United States and Agave Gulch FamCamp, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., the Best Military Campground for the Western U.S., according to The Periscope, Kings Bay, Ga.
During the last few months of 2009, more than 15,000 website members were invited to vote for the Campers Choice Award.
Competition for the Campers Choice Award was even tougher this year than the previous two years, as there were fewer military campgrounds nominated.
This is also the third year in a row that Agave Gulch FamCamp was given this award.
Here are the results for the 2009 Campers Choice Awards for the best military campgrounds:
- Western U.S.: 1. Agave Gulch FamCamp, Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, Ariz.; 2. Desert Eagle FamCamp, Nellis AFB, Las Vegas; 3. (tie) Fort Bliss RV Park, Texas, and Sea Breeze, Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, Calif.; 5. Peregrine Pines Farm Camp, USAF Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo.
