Corps campground reservations open
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District says that the Downstream, East Totten Trail, and Wolf Creek campgrounds on Lake Sakakawea and Lake Audubon are scheduled to open May 14, and that online reservations are now being accepted.
Online reservations can be made up to six months in advanced at www.recreation.gov, or by calling 1-877-444-6777. The public is encouraged to set up their new online account early – a valid email address is required. A reminder that cash and checks are no longer accepted forms of payment at USACE campgrounds.
“Visitors should make reservations before arriving at the campground. Please book same day reservations either online or by calling before traveling to the campgrounds,” said Nathan Busche, USACE Garrison Project natural resources specialist.
Visitors who call the toll-free number to make a same day reservation will be given a reservation number that is required to complete the registration card to be displayed at their campsite marker.
Continuing in 2021, visitors to USACE recreation projects will be able to purchase, or obtain the following interagency recreation passes: Interagency Senior Pass $20 annual, or $80 lifetime; Interagency Access Pass is free. Passholders receive a 50% discount at all USACE managed campgrounds. Also, the ‘America the Beautiful’ pass is available through the www.recreation.gov website, or by calling 1-888-275-8747, option three.
