Background: In 1990 the Corps was directed to develop a plan to maintain and enhance public recreation opportunities at Corps water resource projects while reducing the Federal expenditures for recreation. A National Recreation Study was conducted, and findings from the study recommended establishing a nationwide campground reservation system. In 1995, the Corps signed an interagency agreement with the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management for joint procurement of nationwide recreation reservation services. In December 2002 the Interior and Agriculture Agencies received direction from the Office of Management and Budget to consolidate reservation systems. Subsequently, the NRRS became part of the DOI led Recreation One Stop, E-Government initiative and a new service contact was awarded to ReserveAmerica on
June 17, 2005.
Sales Channel Information: Advance reservations are available by toll-free reservation number (877.444.6777), through the Internet at http://www.recreation.gov or at selected parks.
NRRS Participation: The NRRS program provides "One Stop" shopping for reservations, interagency referrals and access to a wide variety of recreation facilities. The total number of reservable locations in the NRRS represents more than 1,700 parks and over 50,000 campsites and cabins. The Corps of Engineers has over 170 Projects and 620 parks participating in the NRRS.
