How To Find Workamping (Part One)




Life is so beautiful. 


Many folks ask me about workamping. There are both volunteer situations and paid deals. Some require couples, others accept singles or a couple with just one person workamping. Length of position varies from one month to year-round indefinite. Both government and the private sector offer a wide selection of unique situations.  

Typically all require you to live on site in your RV.  Your lot and utilities are generally provided at no cost in exchange for working or volunteering part time. Some places will employ you fulltime or seasonally with some wages and a site included.

This is not a get rich quick scheme but if you have a sense of adventure and love living in your camper in unusual places, this could be right up your alley. 

If you expect to earn a lot of money, then this may not be for you at all.  However, there are some seasonal situations like RV Elves with Amazon. You work long hours seasonally, earning paychecks.  

Check out some of the latest workamping openings at:

More listings are available at:

Also  the US Army Corps of Engineers has a site at:
http://www.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/Recreation/VolunteerClearinghouse/VolunteerOpportunities.aspx

All three of these sites are free to use. Some state park systems have their own separate listings as well.
