A majority of work camping jobs are seasonal, running from about May to October, though some positions in warm weather states like Florida or Arizona may be year-round.
Recreation Resource Management has camp hosts managing stores, marinas, canoe rentals, boat ramps and horseback riding facilities, but the most common position is of course managing a small camp ground or part of a larger campground.
A campground host usually resides in their own RV at the campground they are hosting, and are typically responsible for:
- Greeting guests
- Collecting fees
- Preparing weekly revenue and attendance reports
- Helping guests solve problems
- Cleaning exterior and interior facilities (particularly bathroom buildings)
- Some light maintenance
