Title: When do most Parks/Agencies start recruiting
Post by: KODIAKHERSHEY on August 21, 2017, 04:42:28 PM
We have been workcampers in 2 Fl State Parks. And, have been asked back to both over this winter.
We want to go out west next year. I have been searching for a place to spend the summer that is somewhere cooler than Florida.
When do most places post ads for the following year?
Thank you.

The more popular places recruit a year or more ahead. The smaller,lesser known ones, about three months ahead.  I use volunteer.gov to find our spots.

Thanks, for the reply. I'm thinking a more aggressive approach is needed. I may be behind the curve...
I'll find a great place.

In the west, I have found that if you contact a local forest service office in January or early February they can put you in touch with whoever is in charge of hiring campground hosts.  Some have electricity and hook ups, most you will be boondocking.  Sometimes they will pay you between $15-$25 a day, 5 days a week, but you will be providing your own gas/propane.

Well, we are going to spend the summer at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. Really looking forward to the trip and the whole experience.
 Stop by and see us...

Enjoying the good life.

Love that area, we might be able to pop by! If you have time take a drive out to South Park City, it's a really interesting old town filled with stuff.  We really enjoyed it.
