It is my understanding that Kerr lake facilities in Virginia and North Carolina are closing for a while

The Nashville District Corps of Engineers posted today that they will immediately begin an orderly shutdown of those campgrounds that have already opened for the 2020 season and keep the others closed for the time being. One way to check on a particular Corps campground is to start from the Corps locations map on their headquarters website, click on the District you're interested, and either check the news stories or go to their recreation page and click on the COVID-19 banner at the top of the page. Glad to hear they're letting the volunteers stay.

Another one bites the dust. I just arrived at Clear Springs Park near Texarkana and they have signs up saying their campground is closing March 22. This is like a bad movie where the world comes to an end, except the sky is not falling. People die. New ones take their place. This too will pass. They should at least let the fearless go camping and everybody else can crawl under their beds.

Texas COE is closing.

Quote:

FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District announce campground reservation cancellations in response to the coronavirus.

The cancellations will not affect those campers already at the campgrounds.

USACE campgrounds that are currently open will honor active reservations through Sunday, March 22. Individuals with reservations on or before March 22 will be able to camp for the entirety of their reservation. No new reservations will be accepted after March 22.
No new campers will be accepted at first-come, first-serve campsites effective Thursday, March 19.

Campground reservations scheduled between March 23 and May 15 will be cancelled. Refunds will be provided through Recreation One-Stop (1-877-444-6777 or recreation.gov). Reservations after May 15 will be reevaluated at a future date.

These measures are in addition to operational changes Fort Worth District announced earlier this week.


The COE Fort Worth District includes all COE campgrounds in Texas except those on Lake Texoma and Pat Mayse Lake just north of Paris, TX. (Tulsa District). A few campgrounds on Lake Texoma now open will remain open for existing reservations. Those scheduled to open in April and on May 1, will not until some time in May. Pat Mayse Lake will remain open, expect sites closed due to flooding/ damage.

The Galveston District along the Texas Gulf Coast has no campgrounds.
