Employment Roles

Campground Hosts

A majority of work camping jobs are seasonal, running from about May to October, though some positions in warm weather states may be year-round. Camp Hosts manage stores, marinas, canoe rentals, boat ramps, and horseback riding facilities, but the most common position is managing a small campground or part of a larger campground. A campground host usually resides in their own RV at the campground they are hosting.

Other requirements:

  • Minor children are not permitted to reside with Camp Hosts onsite.
  • Camp Hosts must have their own RV if living onsite.

Manager-In-Training (MIT)

Our fast-paced Management-in-Training Program develops new Operations Managers to help sustain our expanding business and partnerships!

Manager-In-Training Candidates must love interacting with the public, and be willing to work flexible schedules including evenings, weekends, and holidays. Training includes a mixture of online tutorials and on-the-job training for a minimum of one season prior to taking on their own permit.

Other requirements:

  • Minor children are not permitted to reside with the MIT onsite.
  • Operations Managers must have their own RV if living onsite.

Operations Managers

Vista Recreation highly values promoting within! Operations Managers at Vista Recreation generally are those who have been promoted from Camp Hosts and graduated our Manager-In-Training Program under the mentorship from other Operations Managers or Regional Directors. If you are interested in becoming an Operations Manager, we encourage you to apply for our Manager-In-Training position. External Manager candidates are considered if skills and experience match our Company requirements.

Other requirements:

  • Minor children are not permitted to reside with Operations Managers onsite.
  • Operations Managers must have their own RV if living onsite.

Maintenance Personnel

At Vista Recreation, maintenance personnel roles are generally filled by Camp Hosts, but on occasion, they may need to be filled by an external candidate. Duties include but are not limited to: tree and debris maintenance and/or removal; road and site construction, maintenance, and pavement; general store, cabins, or other structure upkeep and maintenance. If interested, please apply as a Camp Host.

I have worked for Vista Recreation for 16 years and it's a great company where growth is always a possibility. Started out in the company as a maintenance person, then moved up to Area Manager. Working in the mountains gives me great joy!
