Four Georgia Campgrounds Operating Cashless

Four West Point Lake campgrounds, near LaGrange, Ga., will operate cashless in 2018.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District announced that only credit and debit cards will be accepted as payment at R. Shaefer Heard, Whitetail Ridge, Holiday and Amity Campgrounds, according to The Lagrange Daily News

Any other form of payment, including checks, will no longer be accepted.

According to David Barr, the supervisory park ranger over the recreation program, the army corps decided to switch to only credit and debit cards since that’s what most people use to make reservations.

“And so most people go onto the website there and make reservations for those sites and pay with credit card. Actually, the majority of sites that are rented are already reserved and so those transactions take place before campers even come to the park,” Barr said.
