We've looked for & stopped twice at Corps of Engineers campgrounds & paid for a camp site.
They have been close to water, had room on a Friday and with the America The Beautiful Pass (62 & older it never expires, the price goes up on the 28th of Aug) you get half off the camp fee & free entrance to the day use areas. We did get electric sites so we could use the air conditioner. Clean bathrooms & drinking water are a plus.

Other times we have parked at free COE places like on the Columbia river.

in Oregon, the John Day dam
I realize this is a little thing but I have been impressed with the COE places we've stopped at.... it's nice to be impressed by something the government does today.
Sure wish I had a boat!
