VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District will resume fee collection at Lake Greeson through an electronic program on Thursday.
Affected areas include Bear Creek, Arrowhead Point and Star of the West campgrounds. Fees will be collected through Scan and Pay, a no-contact QR code-based feature of the Recreation.gov mobile app, which will allow campers to pay for their campsites on a first come, first served basis only. Scan and Pay does not allow reservations. To claim and purchase their campsite, visitors must be physically present and use the app to scan the QR code at the campground. The QR code and confirmation number will serve as a proof of purchase throughout their stay.
The Recreation.gov app is free to download through all major app stores.
For questions about fee collection, contact the Lake Greeson Field Office at 870-285-2151.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, fee collections were suspended in 2020 to minimize contact between park rangers and visitors. The district first used Scan and Pay in November 2020 for recreation areas at Lake Ouachita.
