The Recreation.gov website has an entirely new look with features including simplified search capabilities, enhanced content and streamlined Google maps.  Visitors to the website can now do much more than make reservations for camping, tours and tickets at federal facilities.  The Corps has almost 30,000 reservable campsites in Recreation.gov and there is a wealth of information about Corps water resources projects.  More details on the new features added to the Recreation.gov website may be found under the “New Look! New Features!” Tab located at the top right hand corner of Recreation.gov home page.  We hope you take some time to explore the new Recreation.gov website, and better yet, we hope you find some great new places to get out and Explore Your America!  http://www.recreation.gov
