Seasonal employees are hired at a campground for a negotiated time period. Many are work campers living the RV lifestyle who are typically retired couples looking to supplement their income while traveling throughout North America. There are also single work campers as well as work camping families. Seasonal Campground employees also come from the local area around the campground!

If you don't have an RV you can call the specific campground you're interested in to find out if they provide housing or have housing options available on site.
