With over 400 lakes and river projects in 43 states provide a diverse range of recreational opportunities. Ninety percent of our recreation areas are located within 50 miles of a major metropolitan center. These opportunities serve diverse populations in a sustainable, safe and healthful manner.

The Recreation CoP includes all Corps employees who provide recreational services or support, as well as external entities with recreational interests.
