Celebrate Veterans Day with these camping specials.
Not only will county parks (except Deerfield Island Park) remain open this Veterans Day, our parks with campgrounds will also offer camping specials. The specials apply for all active-duty and honorably discharged veterans of the U.S. armed forces, National Guard, and reserve units.
Written documentation will be required to establish eligibility, along with current personal identification.* Rates are for up to four campers, with additional per-camper fees applying (up to six campers total). Pet registration fees also apply.
