Camping fees waived for military
Members of the military and their dependents can now use the America the Beautiful Federal Recreation Pass Program’s new Annual Pass for Military at the Hartwell and J. Strom Thurmond Dam and Lake projects.
Military members and their dependents who present the pass will receive a fee waiver for day-use areas at both locations that are managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District such as boat launches and swimming areas. They may also present their Department of Defense identification card or common access card to receive the day-use fee waiver.
The Corps of Engineers will also continue to waive camping fees for active duty military and their dependents on mid- or post-deployment leave.
