Background on City of Rocks State Park

The City of Rocks State Park IS a page right out of history.  This natural wonder was created millions of years ago, a product of a volcanic monstrosity. The searing fragments piled high forming giant masses, a sort of welding process.  Eventual erosion created the pillars and other various rock formations we see today.

There are still signs of early inhabitants throughout the area, most notably grinding tools. Wildlife and vegetation specific to the Southwest bring life and variety to this bedrock. Read more about Background on City of Rocks State Park

3 Things You need to know about Workamping!

#1:  What is Workamping? We trademarked the word “Workamper” back in 1987.  Workamping is accomplished by individuals that travel the country and work. Some people try to limit the definition by saying, “Well, I’m only a Workamper if I’m working in a campground or if I live in an RV.”  That’s not technically the definition.  […]

Chinook Bay Camp Hosting: What I learned

Wow. We’ve been busy.  If you’ve tried to reach us or come to visit us you know this isn’t a boring gig. At all.  Friends and family have come and spent a few nights with us, with everyone commenting how busy we are. We are!  Campers on top of campers, people at the door all hours of the day and night. Snakes in tents, loud drunk campers in their 60s who must be reminded of quiet hours; trees falling almost on top of tents; trees falling on camper vans (no one was hurt, thank goodness) and oh, so much more.

Tree Trimming- Florida Style

We got our last seasonal position like we get most of our jobs these days, by talking to other full time RVers we meet and sharing information about our past jobs we enjoyed or would recommend. We met a couple this past summer at our Jellystone job who travel down to Florida every year to sell Christmas Trees. We had heard of RVers doing this but rarely met anyone so we had so many questions and were lucky enough to have Burt and Dori to give us first hand experience and reassure us that the company they work for in Florida was legit.
