Anyone experienced as camp host or workamper?

I'm looking for information on finding work as a campground host or workamper. Has anyone worked for Aramark or RRM or any other big companies like that? Any smaller gigs?

Anyone managed to do it year round?

My husband and I are looking to do the same thing. You may have seen this, but Workamper News has some very useful links. Their featured employer section has some fun opportunities like these gigs in Alaska. Some parks even give a small cost of living stipend. Hope to see y'all down the road!

Check out the Escapees RV Club site. They have a forum on volunteering and paid work:

While I don 't have any experience workamping, I have been looking at this site to see what is out there in the future. It's a free site and has listings from a lot of places.

13 years and counting.

We have been Workamping for all sorts of employers for 13 years now. While the two you first mentioned are not on our list we have worked for such places as Amazon.com, Adventureland Amusement park in IA, Disney World, Dolly World, Sees Candy, Hickory Farms, KOA's, private Campgrounds, and several other companies.

There are a lot of jobs out there, with winter (paying) jobs being the harder to come by (Our northern neighbors come down and work for free sites which screws up the market. But we always tell employers "your get what you pay for" and we have yet to see a site we would "pay" $1200 a month for ie: approx min. wage time 20 hours times 2 times 4!)

Workamper News is OK (more gimmicks than real help anymore, tho') but there are LOTS of other sources on the web. Just like hunting for a REAL job.

If you'd like to be a camp host at a Corps of Engineers or other Federal agency campground, try this link… Volunteer.gov/gov-America's Natural & Cultural Resources

Typing in "camp host" in the keyword box at the top of the page netted 60 job oppotunities nationwide, as of this morning.

Being a camp host for the Government only gives you a free campsite in exchange, no salary, but many Corps campgrounds are open year-round in the southern states, so it need not be a summer-only gig.

Thanks everyone (long time no reply...been busy with an AS renovation). I was looking into this information originally for an article I was working on for a full-timing magazine I work for.

Ended up getting a ton of information from the wonderful Rene from this website (not the mag I mentioned above, FYI): Live. Work. Dream. Working to find the dream life - RV Snowbird Lifestyle Design Travel Blog

This will be our first time doing this... so I went on Google, and went to this website:

Work for RVers and Campers: Employment, Campground Jobs, Volunteer, RV Business

I found a job easily! It all depends on where you want to be, and what you want to do! They do sections month by month with a huge list by states!

Hope this helps
