The RV community is comprised of folks with all kinds of jobs, lives, and stories, including campers who have served the United States of America. At Camping World, we acknowledge and honor our military service members and veterans. After all, we cherish the freedom of filling up the gas tank and hitting the open road.
If you’re reading this article, you may be a service member yourself or know one. Learn what kind of savings to look for, and how to ask for them, with this RVers guide to military and veteran discounts below.
Note: To verify your service, most campgrounds and companies require the presentation of military identification, while other places may need more or less proof of eligibility to receive the discount.
Camping World Military and Veteran Discount
Camping World honors all military and veterans every day by extending a 5% discount on all purchases online and in-store (some exclusions do apply). If you’re a Good Sam member, this discount applies on top of your member savings. Additionally, Camping World makes a point to hire, train, and transition veterans into the civilian workforce, as well as military spouses. If you’re a veteran or military spouse looking for employment, reach out at [email protected] for more information.
National Park Service Military and Veteran Discount
In partnership with Operation Live Well, the National Park Service thanks military personnel and their families for their service by inviting them to enjoy the national parks with free access. This free access program is an opportunity for our veterans, Gold Star families, and current military (and their dependents) to explore our national parks‘ public lands and waters for free, any day of the year.
Bonus: There’s a comprehensive list of state park passes organized alphabetically, by state, at the US Veteran Camper, a site founded by a disabled marine veteran who became a professional camper. This site is one every RVer, especially military personnel and veterans, should bookmark.
