Tents for Troops, the program providing free camping for active military, has added six new parks in the last two weeks.

Two of the new parks came from states that are new to the program, bringing the total number of states participating in the program to 32, ever closer to their goal of providing free camping for active military in all 50 states, according to a news release.

Two of the parks were affiliated with Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA), the first two KOAs to join Tents for Troops.

The six parks are:

  • Montrose KOA is very close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
  • Horse Cave KOA Kampground is surrounded by the world’s largest cave systems, Horse Cave KOA is surrounded by mazes of underground caves. They also have minigolf and a pool for the kids.
  • Another park is Rose Trail RV Park in Cherokee, Ala. Rose Trail RV Park is owned by Jacklyn Calzolano, whose son is in the marines. Her park has some great fishing and is the first park in Alabama to join Tents for Troops. Known for its great Crappie fishing and excellent hunting, and prided for its first class hospitality, Rose Trail is the place to go to get away from it all and get back to nature.
  • Friendly Beaver Campground in New Boston, N.H. It boasts three outdoor pools and one indoor pool. There are wagon rides for the kids as well as miniature horses. This park is full of fun activities throughout the camping season.
  • Tall Pines Campground in Lewes, Del. Tall Pines Campground is the first campground within Delaware, putting the total number of States participating at 32. Just minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by 110 acres of Tall Pines, it has all the makings for a calm and peaceful getaway. For activities, Tall Pines has a pool, minigolf course, playground and fitness center.
  • Ocean Park Resort in Ocean Park, Wash. Ocean Park Resort is just a six-block walk to the ccean on Washington’s famous Long Beach. In the summer there is a pool and spa. For the kids and kids at heart there is many fun and games, and if you hit the season right, some of the best clam digging on the coast.

Tents for Troops is very happy and thankful to all the new parks that have joined. The parks should be up on their website very soon at
