Most of the dams on the Columbia River in Washington and along Oregon border have Campgrounds. Some are contracted but still operate through the Corps.
POIs quite often do not have all the campgrounds. Many require the agency to submit them or something like that.

I suspect those aren't all campground parks, COE manages boat ramps, picnic areas and other sites around these lakes. I'll have to figure out where the other FL COE site is, maybe up at three rivers. There are two active ones around Lake Okeechobee. We have a reservation at the one on the west called WP Franklin South, Ortona is on the other side of the lake and has very few RV spots making it very hard to get into. These also have the highest prices of any COE CG I've ever seen.


Here is more detail from the original data:

FL
Ortona South
"FL Corp of Eng
863-675-8400"

Port St. Lucie
"FL Corp of Eng
561-287-1382"

W P Franklin
"FL Corp of Eng
239-694-8770"

All 3 are part the Okeechobee navigation system, related to locks built by the COE. Since the dataset is billed as "US Federal & State Campgrounds," I am pretty sure it does not include sites that are just boat ramps and picnic sites.

This is where I put in a plug for the POI Factory website. You must sign up for a free account to use it, but it contains a wealth of information (some useful, some less so) of points of interest (information and geographic coordinates) many of which I have found to be useful, whether you RV or just travel. The individual POI files are developed and maintained by individual users.

All POI files on the site come with revision date information. The one I used here is somewhat dated, so it may be missing some newer ones, though I doubt many new COE projects have been done in the last 10 years or so.

I have stayed at the "WP Franklin Locks" in south Florida. It is very nice and is like being on an island and hard to get reservations in the winter. They also have hookup camping slots for traveling boats as well.

We usually just stay at USFS cgs but I wanted to get back into some COE camping just for fun. We have 3 COE cgs just 50 miles from home that we have stayed at often 14 years ago.

OK, but you generally approach from Chattahoochee. [emoticon]

I always kid DW about escaping from Chattahoochee one more time.
