For instance the Access Pass (NPS pass for those who are disabled) gives you lower rates on some national campgrounds - not sure who gives what, but one can always look it up and see which National Parks Serive (NPS), USACE, & other national agencies have campgrounds and give the discount pkg. The NPS Access Pass is also honored by other agencies such USACE, BLM, etc. Just show them your military disability ID and voila you have an Access Pass.
Commencing this month there is also an Active Military Pass being given out by the NPS which is good at several government recreational areas, historical parks, etc. Worth looking up the NPS Pass internet site and take a look.

I'm a workin' full timer. 13 months until 65 and retirement, but who's counting? Have a place to park in the state in which I domicile. But, due to work, I'm seldom there other than short visits 5-6 times a year totaling 3-4 months.
I'm traveling in the east where I move every 2 weeks to a month. Federal and COE parks are most desirable due to the "geezer" pass and ambiance. State, City, and County parks have been very reasonable in addition to having longer stay limits in some cases. Passport America has saved me money, not only while in transit, but in those areas where a public park isn't available. Some PA parks have also allowed longer stays at the PA rate during the off season. I endeavor to keep my daily rate around $15/night with W/E.
I use a website, U.S. Campgrounds, to locate those parks. So far, so good. And again, let me also thank you for your service.
As a fulltime RVer you can find a membership to TT to be a tremendous value. But only if you use it.
As a TT member, I can say: If you decide to purchase, purchase only a used TT membership from a selling member. You end up paying pennies on the dollar and enjoy the same benefits.
Saying that, there are all kinds of TT memberships available. Some you only get 2 weeks in and have to be out for a week and then you can only use it 50 or 60 days a year for free. Not really a good deal.
Some you can get three weeks in and no week out and move to another TT campground for another three weeks all year long without spending another dime.
Our membership allows us to spend the entire winter in southern AZ and CA for free, we just move from park to park.
If you find a TT membership for sale by a private party, just get the contract number and call TT member services and get a copy of the membership contract and get the exact facts of that particular membership.
If your not in a TT area, the membership is usless.
I agree,we use ours along with military bases.

I would suggest that you go to any National Park. show proof of being disabled. They will issue you a Inter Agency Pass Look here
I have one. We can stay at any for example BLM campground for half price. For example Tuttle Creek in Lone Pine Ca. is $5.00 a night 14 day limit unless you purchase a Long Term Visitor Area Permit Look here
