I have gathered links that might come in handy if I need to work.
links to the private companies running parks, doing retail (Amazon, for example), hotels and lodges.
This has been my dream book. I have subscribed for years. Now it is web accessible. Any type of caretaking job you can imagine …. from “come camp at my organic farm” to “Need a professional majordomo for 45 room house in charge of staff of 12” to “Need someone for one month in my cabin in Belize” to “Need someone on my island in Maine for two months this summer”. From a flat out exchange to tens of thousands of dollars.
Another great link: “Welcome to WWOOF-USA! Since 2001 we have been connecting sustainable farmers with willing volunteers, in an exchange of education, culture, and sweat to bring forth wholesome agricultural products from the farms of the USA.”
application in by may 1, work begins Sept 1
Mostly farm situations where you get a room or tent space while you help them with chores. Some provide full room and board while you help and learn.
A poorly designed website with obnoxious ads. It also has a plethora of fascinating, interesting jobs that are geared to people on the road. I learned about “Survey Technician Positions Open for Full Time and Part Time RVers”
This site had the normal sites and then surprised me with this:
FEMA Disaster Housing Inspector
We work for PB Inspections, which is one of the two contractors in the United States that offers contract services to FEMA to complete home inspections when a disaster occurs. We worked Hurricane Ike in 2008 doing disaster inspections in Texas. It was a rewarding experience, but not for the faint of heart. You do work hard a minimum of six days a week. In many cases you are dealing with folks that have lost everything. You may even meet someone who lost a loved one due to the disaster. In many cases, you might be their first contact to bring financial aid to them. We liked the work. You must pass an extensive background check and complete all the online training. It worked out well for us as RVers and if your good you can make decent money. Hurricane Ike was our first assignment, so we were learning and very slow in the beginning. I think we made about $4,000 in three weeks. However, many pros are making a $1,000 – $1,500 a day or more. You are considered self-employed and paid on a 1099.

Also, check out PaRR Inspections. They do the same thing for FEMA:
Different private rv parks and hotels
Personal reviews of a couple’s work camping experiences, from Amazon to Skagway retail. They are detailed in their reviews. Worth browsing.
A concessionaire company.
this park is managed by a private company, Xanterra Parks & Resorts. There is a link to their big site below. Yellowstone has its own site.
This site has some information, but want you to fill out an application first. You can select which kind of job you want to see if it suits. The campground host for Crater Lake sounded like way too much work. The website was not great. The Yellowstone one looked professional.
“A global leader in hospitality and food service, Delaware North Companies, Inc. is one of the largest privately held companies in North America. The company has a strong reputation in its industries – hospitality, food service, travel and tourism, retail, gaming and entertainment- with more than 100 locations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and England.” I didn’t find anything for me, but it does have seasonal jobs.
A concessionaire company. Lots of inns and lodges.
